    Clients can be hard to handle, that's part of the job. Your skill as a designer has to include talking your client into what is good for him. Some designers can't do that, so they hire a contact person...

    That will produce worse results. For example, if you specify the size in which the image displays as 200 x 200 pixels, but you upload a 300 x 300-pixel image, your browser will still need to display that...

    Hi all,

    I accidently entered my real name the first time I registered on GDF. Now I want to keep my same username but change the email address associated with it. How do I do this? Also, why should I not use my real name on the forum? I've a newbie to Web forums.

    Thanks

      if you use your real name, people can google you, and sometimes that's not a terribly desirable thing to have happen. That's all.

      To change your email address:

      - go to "User CP" (top left of the thread)
      - select "edit email and password" on the left, 2nd line item
      - enter your new information and save the changes

      That's all there is to it.

        At some point in the future, a potential employer or client might decide to google your name just to see what comes up. If they click on a link that takes them to one of your posts here where you either: A) express your doubt as to whether a particular client has any brains, B) start a flame war with another member, or C) say something extraordinarily funny but extremely tasteless, (which most of us do at some point), they may view you as unprofessional and thus not hire you.

        If Virgo Nightingale was my real name, a google search might have someone thinking I'm a total pervert who's obsessed with avocadoes. I don't want potential employers knowing that about me until I've worked for them for at least a year.

              just hope that your boss doesn't google you then, JP! After that discussion about the eggbeaters and the shoehorn you'd be in hot water for sure!

                  no... why would I watch a bachelor party? I'm a girl.

                  Oh boy, I get the feeling that this thread has taken a bad turn...

                  edit: thank goodness I didn't use my real name!
