Headers and Backgrounds
All headers and backgrounds are rendered using the CSS background property to enable you to easily place text on top using HTML. This is much more versatile than simply using an <img> tag to insert an image.
Some of the photos I used to make the headers and backgrounds are royalty free photos taken from various online sources. Others photos are ones that I took myself or are ones that my cousin Melissa took.
Here are the official...
Special thanks goes for providing the photos I used to create some of the backgrounds and headers in the Two Column Fixed Width series. Be advised that Melissa retains the copyright on all these photos. Her photos were used in templates #:
Special thanks goes to Jon Sullivan at PDPHOTO.ORG for providing completely hassle-free (and high quality) public domain photos. His photos helped to create templates #:
All my free website templates were tested in various screen resolutions including 800 x 600, 1024 x 768 and 1280 x 1024. I think it's generally accepted that 640 x 480 has long since gone the way of the dodo so I no longer produce web pages with this screen size in mind. As of this writing, the most popular screen resolution being used on computers with internet access is 1024 x 768 (according to the W3C display resolution stats).
All the thumbnail previews represent the templates in 1024 x 768 resolution. Liquid display means that the template will expand or contract according to the viewer's screen resolution. Fixed-width display means that the working area of the template is set at a certain width (usually 760 pixels). This will snugly fit into an 800 x 600 screen resolution leaving enough space for the vertical scroll bars without spreading the page and creating those ugly horizontal scroll bars. In 1024 x 768 or larger there will be extra screen space on one or both sides of the fixed-width displays.
All these templates were tested exhaustively in the following web browsers:
As far as graphics and photo editing, Paint Shop Pro was my main work horse but I also used sTile.
