    New website

    Yeah, nothing stands still for long at all and you have to keep using it to keep up. Adobe reversed the Transform tool operation in PS and I just can’t shake off the fact I don’t need the shift key when resizing. My web sites are still down, but my guru in the UK must be waking up soon, probably a server reboot needed

    New website

    I think I may have broken the new site and also the current one as well. While working on the new site trying to work out how to set up discounts it all went south. Both the new site and the existing one went down. A coincidence? Not likely seeing as they both occupy the same web space. Let’s hope my guru can flick a switch and it all pops up again. I will tell you something. This web creation stuff is like a secret society and I’m not sure they have let me in yet 😇

    New website

    I am currently up to my neck building a new web site. It’s a bit of a job when you have to take content that has built up over years and then reorganise it, prepare it and get it all into a new site. its not going too bad, but it’s rather like taking on a difficult project with Photoshop when you don’t have experience of the software. The menus that drive the site are extensive. Added to that is my guru is in the UK, so when I get stuck, he’s asleep and when he replies, I’m asleep I may be gone for some time 😀

    Mp4 videos on the Internet

    My web guru has said much the same and I have allowed download of an unzipped mp4s with no reported problems as you say. There has never been one example of a PTE file executable file containing a virus, but many virus programs will block them. A bit more understandable in those cases. its the blocking that does damage to the reputation even when its unfounded

    Mp4 videos on the Internet

    The view of a web professional is that the only way a virus could get into an Mp4 is if I placed it there, which I won’t of course.

    Mp4 videos on the Internet

    I should have made my question a little more clear. Not really looking for a size saving, but was thinking of the virus issues. They just don't seem as relevant with Mp4 videos as they are/were with executable files. Is that just my perception of am I missing something. If I have an Mp4 video. so I put it up on line and link to it as an Mp4 or zip it first

    I suppose not. When your whole life changes, it takes some getting used to.

    Mp4 videos on the Internet

    Should Mp4 videos be zipped like exe files for transportation over the internet. I feel the answer is no, but I'm not sure and a Google search didn't seem to reveal much. What's the consensus

    DNG Files

    You can set the import via Bridge to Dng and it seems to remember the setting, so it’s easy to set up and have the dng option for the future. There doesn’t seem to be a downside, so you could ask why not?

    Site Maps

    It's not so much not having a sitemap, I think they are created automatically. Its having a link to a sitemap so visitors can browse it. Just takes up a menu spot that may be better used for something more relevant.

    DNG Files

    I’ve thought about it, but never actually placed the convert option into my importing procedure. I have raw files 20 years old and have never had an issue and Photoshop Creative Cloud seems to make any issues less likely. It’s one of those things perhaps that is a great idea, but no one seems to have bought into it to the level Adobe thought they would. As far as I am aware there is no down sides to it.

    Variable Speed Modifiers

    I have often thought about the default for speed. I think the default should be set, not at Linear, but smooth. Linear is fine if an animation was created full screen from the very start of the slide time to the very end. Then speed doesn’t matter, but even if you had smooth set, it wouldn’t do any harm anyway. If the animation starts after the fade on or stops before the fade off, then smooth is better than linear. Then of course, when you select the first keyframe, where the speed needs to go, you can’t always tell if any animation is set on the second keyframe. One idea I had was to make a slide style that added 3 keyframes to the one already created and applied smooth speed to keyframes number 1 and 3 for pan, zoom and rotate. So, the speed option is always set at smooth for the two starting keyframes. If they are not used for animation, no harm done

    Site Maps

    I can understand a site map as a plan of what to do, (as in the link above) but can't see how a site map would help a visitor to a website when they see a link to the site map in the options. I've never used a site map link on a site and bet not many others have either. I am just about to embark on my third and final website build. That's why this topic came up at all. I've taken the plunge for a number of reasons, none of them financial. One is that I need an SSL certificate because Browsers are about to start making life difficult for those who don't. The secure part of our shop is the Payment Gateway, not the website, but needs must The support and development for our old shop/site (they are one and the same ) is just not there. It appears to be dying so I may as well get off the train before it goes over a cliff. I also need a purpose and something to do in my retirement and this fills that need. So far I have been playing around with a demo site to make sure it will do what I want and in the next day or so I'll pay the money (gulp) and get started. The good news is I do have a great guru who is an expert on this stuff and it's he who gives me techie help and hosts my site. Not this forum, but the main web site So, watch this space.
