    Those curious about the title should read this article.

    Very creative indeed. Sometimes, I use the liquidfy mode in Photoshop to change a normal picture to with this effect!

  3. pundit says:

    It was actually by mistake :). I had my camera on autofocus, and it decided to focus on the droplets on my window rather than the people!

    Thanks for stopping by! For one, yeah, I keep it very plain, because I want the image to stand out prominently.

    I can begin to center it vertically, it shouldn’t be a problem. It’s just that I run my desktops at insane resolutions, so I drop it down to what my access logs say are the most common resolutions of those that access this site when I work on it. In that resolution, it seemed close-to-center, so I left it.

    See samples.

    I will sort that out for higher resolutions. What are you running at?

    Looks good, not many cosmetic changes though. I don’t know if you purposely kept it plain vanilla, but spicing it up with a dash of color will make the bland look go away. Just a suggestion :) Also, is there any way you can vertically center the photo log as well? (more space at the bottom than the top)

  6. Anantha says:

    meaning more space at the bottom now.

    I like very high resolutions too , but my laptop only supports 1400 x 1050. Can’t you define a fluid layout which will center the image/page irrespective of the resolution?

    And that is what I plan to do. Once I get home and can ssh into my host.
