    You're really going to need a thicker skin than that to survive in this business. Most of the critiques I've read have to do with your portfolio not being an integral part of the site. My critique is,...

    What I meant is it's a sticky topic in this sub-section of the forum. Would have been directly under the button you pressed to start a new topic about it.

    Funny thing is: I can write a post with those characters but only when editing they break. At least to me it looks that way....

  • Gif question...

    I have some links in my header of my website that I'm trying to make more attractive by using a tiny gif file that adds visual affect. This gif file is supposed to work like this:

    When the user hovers over the image and or link, the image is supposed to display a motion after which the remaining 2 layers of the gif image are supposed to repeat. Keep in mind that the final moment which the mouse remains hovered over the image, it is not in :active mode, but still, in :hover mode.

    Can this be done? Have a gif that has only 2 or so images within the entire gif file only repeat while the others are cycled through only once?

    It's not the image that does what you want, it's Javascript or CSS or Flash...

    The image you set to hover is going to be your animated version while the others may be static. There's some issues with that though, animated files take up file size and may not be loaded up when roll over.

      You could do it with multiple GIF files and a CSS/JS trick but you'll probably want to use Flash. I'd advise against using too much animation on your site.
