Basic image editing for the internet
Just yesterday, I was reminded that occasional users of digital images sometimes need just a little bit more information about what they are attempting to do.

Proofreaders are always needed
The defining of style classes for all if the information boxes in the left side column went much quicker than I had anticipated. Now the colors and general style of each individual area can be controlled from the stylesheet, a critical consideration when building a template that will be resold over...
