Foto

Previewed a theme called Foto but didn’t like the home page.  Colours good but too fussy and not chic enough.  Didn’t install.

Origami Theme

Tried Origami Theme as it wouldn’t work last week and quite liked the look of it.  Like the pale grey background and the large scale photo gallery.  Like the mid grey slim line text style used on the site name and sub title.  Not happy with how it works on the computer screen though, feels like the wrong scale i.e. the page is too long and you have to scroll down to see the full image and what is going on.  Not convinced with this layout so will look for an alternative theme.  May come back to it as further plug ins are available and could make the theme work.

Video

Added video to my website from today.  Added a very inspirational video from Rachel Garrard via Vimeo.  Also registered with Vimeo and uploaded my own experimental video called Drawing Day last week. Uploaded this video from Vimeo onto my website today.

Invested in Photoshop CC – Yay!

Decided its time that I really should get to grips with Photoshop for the sake of my website and to enhance my own photographic artwork.

Positive note – great value at £8.75 per month (that’s one return trip to Chichester in the car)

Negative note – nobody at hand to ask for technical support. I have to rely on my online info finding skills!!
