In the picture above, Yuval (my amazing boy) slides in the playground. As you can see he’s not very clean, we just ate mulberries we picked from a near-by tree.

I welcome all the new visitors coming through Lightroom Facebook page recommendation.
Following the impressive support I got in comments and e-mails I will try to do more frequent updates to the tutorials section.
I’m working on some tips for Lightroom 3 and Photoshop CS5, stay tuned…

As for LrSaver, we’re working now in full speed on supporting Lightroom 3. we should have a beta release available in less than a week…

Site updates

Screen Resolution

For a while I was thinking about increasing the website resolution (website width). While it seems a simple decision, I was not sure what are the most widely used monitors today and whether such increment will be problematic to some of the visitors.

This is where Google analytics came in to play. One of the many parameters that analytics monitors is the screen resolution. The following graph shows the screen resolutions of the blog visitors from the last month:

The above information shows that ~90% of the users are using wide screen and/or high resolution monitors and only 10% are still using 1024×768. Following this input I’ve decided to increased site width. Visitors with low resolution monitors can use browser zoom functionality to overcome this limit.

So, what’s new?

Ok, so what is new in the updated site design:

  • Wider resolution, photographs are much bigger now!
  • Updated Portfolio design, sleeker & faster than previous one. I’m currently test-driving the zoom/pan functionality, would highly appreciate your input.
  • Updated ‘Web Recommendation’ Sidebar (bottom right menu)
  • New image enlargement script, click on the analytics screenshot above to see.

Would be great to hear your feedback…
