GIMP Script-Fu Updates

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 22, 2014, 9:48 PM


Fueled by no sleep and too much caffeine,  I finally got around to checking my GIMP Script-Fu "actions". I've received many messages over the years that they no longer work.

The good news is that I cannot find anything wrong with them. The Script-Fu scripts are still compatible with the latest version of GIMP—that is 2.8.10 at the time of this writing. The bad news is that it took me like five years to get around to checking out the problem, LOL :lol: And here I was thinking that I'd have to relearn the scripting language.

One of the problems could be that the directory path for the scripts in version 2.4 was Program Files/GIMP-2.4/share/gimp/2.0/scripts, but now in 2.8 it is Program Files/GIMP 2/share/gimp/2.0/scripts. It's not a major change, but I can see if someone was thrown off by the new name.

The biggest change is how to refresh the scripts. Originally in 2.4 you went to Xtns > Script-Fu > Refresh Scripts, but in version 2.8 it is now Filters > Script-Fu > Refresh Scripts.

troubleshooting

This does not mean that there haven't been any problems. Just none that I am aware of. There may have been a version of GIMP that caused incompatibility with the .scm files.  However, if anyone does have an issue, please give me more info to work with than, "it doesn't work." For example...

Are the scripts not showing at all under the Filters menu?

Are the scripts visible, but there is an error when they run? Do you get an error message?

What version of GIMP are you running?

Keep in mind that these are just a few basic things I'll need to know to be able to troubleshoot any problems you may encounter.

changelog 4/22/2014

  • I updated the location for all of the scripts within GIMP. They are now found under Filters > Color Effects > "name of pack".
  • The original files in deviations for Reminisce and Dawn on dA have been updated.
  • Script-Fu Color Effects was renamed to Script-Fu Basic Color Effects to avoid menu confusion.
  • Due to upload errors, Script-Fu Soft Effects, Script-Fu Basic Effects, and Script-Fu Basic Color Effects (originally Script-Fu Color Effects) have been uploaded as new deviations.
  • Script-Fu Soft Effects, Script-Fu Basic Effects, and Script Fu Basic Color Effects have brand new, more in-depth readmes.

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 9, 2014, 9:13 PM


Figured I should update my journal. I've wanted to upload some of the pieces from 2013's calendar, but I haven't been able to get much rendering done. I've been waylaid by illness and post-holiday fatique (I ended up making ten knitted snowman ornaments for family, a crocheted fish bag for my niece, a knitted infant dress for my other niece, a crocheted lunch bag for my nephew, and a whole bunch of crocheted household items for a family white elephant gift exchange--all in the three weeks prior to Christmas; planning is not my strong area).

Mostly I'm writing to let you know about my new Facebook page. I'll admit that I don't usually spend much time at all on FB, but I'm trying to work on that. ^^; I would love it if you checked out my page (and maybe, if possible, like it)! :aww: I figured it would be better to mention the new page here on dA rather than bug everyone on FB.

Also...

I am always doing more than I should at one time and various things get lost in the shuffle. I want to let everyone know how much I appreciate the faves, comments, as well as the many views I receive on my work.  I am so grateful for everyone's support! :hug:

Edit:
LOL, this journal layout doesn't match the current dA color scheme at all. Guess I'll need to fix that...

Today I received a Daily Deviation for Branched!  This is a special DD, because it's an important piece to me, the fractal artist.  Branched is a fractal over two years in the makIng.  I'm glad my obsessiveness paid off! 

I want to thank SuicideBySafetyPin for selecting/featuring my work, and also for nudging me to post again on dA.  Not that there was any drama about coming back, but as I explained in my last journal, life got in the way.  Also, losing much of my rendered work left me devastated and reluctant to render again.  I don't know what I would have done if I had lost all my parameters.  

For all of you who continued to support my past work and those of you enjoying my current work, I'd like to give you all a big thanks!  I'm also touched to know that there were many deviants who encouraged me to return to dA.  This is me glomping you => :glomp:

As a side note, I go on vacation this Thursday.  I'm in the process of deleting my 16,000 messages.  If there is anything you feel is important and needs my immediate attention, you have until Wednesday (4/18) to note me!  After that, I'm gone for a couple of weeks.

Thanks again to everyone! :aww:

It's definitely been awhile.  

(Why does dA look different every time I stop by? Wow, the New Journal Entry page is completely different now.)

I was contacted by SuicideBySafetyPin through Facebook that I had been featured on Inspiration Station.  I was very surprised and touched by the response.  (Though, wow, some of you pulled out some really old stuff, lol).  I wanted to thank all of you who posted a journal entry about my work, as well as those who continue to use my guides and fave my work.  :glomp:  I sort of needed it with all the stuff going on right now.  

The past couple of years have been hectic.  My hard drive failed right before I was going to upload a new calendar and I lost a good chunk of my rendered fractal work.  My parameters were stored elsewhere, allowing me to easily re-render most of my work, but some pieces were composites and/or edited, making the recreation process for those trickier. That made returning to Apophysis and dA much more difficult.  Last year my husband and I were shocked and devastated to learn that my younger son, in second grade at the time, was being bullied by his long-term substitute teacher.  There were talks with the school and we strongly considered moving out of district.  I guess things sort of worked out in the end.  Our son did need therapy to deal with everything.  We later found out we weren't the only family having issues with this substitute teacher, but she remains a major part of the school's PTA.  My cat also completely disappeared one day.  :sniff:  She was an indoor kitty and we have no idea how she got out.

Oh yeah, my non-Christmas Dancing Black Mage avatar was also lost in The Great Hard Drive Crash.  Not yet sure what I'm going to do with him.

But it hasn't been all doom and gloom.  Much of the reason for my absence from dA is due to life in general.  I had no idea that two children in school was so exhausting.  So much stuff to keep track of.  At least I don't have to watch Yo Yo Gabba Gabba anymore.  (^=^)  I ended up getting a really awesome computer with an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor (that's a 3.2 GHz six-core processor) with 8 gigs of RAM and some other nifty stuff.  I originally planned to buy a corresponding HP monitor, but went with a much higher rated 23" 16:9 Samsung.  My younger son was playing on my computer the other day (Mommy's computer is usually off-limits for the kids ;) ) and he stopped to let me know how great he thought the monitor was.  Never one to dwell on one hobby for long, I have started crocheting little amigurumi plushies--usually for my younger son, but sometimes for myself--and learned to knit.  Wow, was that a horrible learning process.  :faint:  I'm glad it's behind me.

I plan to upload a few pieces of Apo pieces soon, then I'll be going AWOL for a bit, because next Thursday we leave for Disney World!  We're getting really excited (okay, mostly just me; it's been over 13 years since I've been to Disneyland).  We've never done anything like this before.  The best we've done is gone to a waterpark a couple hours away.  Boy, planning this trip has been sooo overwhelming these past few months.  I really feel it's important for the kids to see more of the country than just the Midwest.  My older son was born in California and lived in Florida and Maryland before we moved to Iowa when he was two, so he doesn't have any memories of living anywhere but here.  The younger one was born and raised in Iowa.  We'll also be going to Kennedy Space Center.  When we first broke the news, my younger son was way more excited about going to KSC than he was about Disney World.  Actually, we discovered to our chagrin that neither of our kids were familiar with WDW, LOL.  I've had to use YouTube to fill in the blanks.  YT does come in handy sometimes.

Once again, thanks again for all your kind words!

Long Time No Update

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 17, 2009, 9:33 AM

News

So, I've been a little, ahem, busy lately and haven't been able to update my dA account. Plus, I'm on a really slow computer right now (which is driving me bonkers).  It's taking forever to do much of anything.  Hopefully, I can get the wireless adapter for my computer soon to jack into the house's main internet connection.

Bear with me, please.  It's going to take quite a bit of time to go through messages and upload some new pieces.  Haven't been doing lots with Apophysis, but there are a few things to share.

Financially, things haven't been so hot.  We ended up leaving our apartment before we got behind on rent and have since moved in with my in-laws.  Didn't stop the apartment from claiming we were behind by several months :pissed:.  (We weren't.)  Right now I'm alone in Iowa with the kids because my husband is off in Wisconsin (La Crosse) attending a short school.  He only has a month left, but it's been really hard getting everything to work.  

We borrowed the minivan from my in-laws to take the husband to Wisconsin.  While I was driving around with the kids, the transmission died, leaving us stranded.  It was fun getting that drama fixed.

On the day I was to head back to Iowa with the kids, I woke up with a horrible throbbing pain in my wisdom tooth.  When we had been packing up the apartment, I had a weird numbness in my mouth, but it was Friday night, and the dentist was closed.  The numbness went away the next day.  Since we were busy moving, I just put it behind me and didn't think much of it.  Of course, now I know that it was the beginning of an infection. My top wisdom teeth came in perfectly, one of the bottom ones was a bit wonky but up, and the last one...didn't quite get there and was growing into my cheek.

By the time I got back to Iowa, my face was really swollen on one side.  It took awhile to get the infection down with antibiotics--antibiotics and pain medications that made me very sick and sleep all weekend.  The dentist I saw decided to remove all four, which I wasn't keen on, but was in too much pain to care at that point.  He was going to do it with me conscious, which frankly freaked me out quite a bit, considering I had fully believed I was going to be sedated until I made a quasi-joke to make sure I was going to be unconscious and discovered otherwise.  So, I got a referral for sedation.

I was apprehensive because I don't ever remember being sedated, but I knew that I didn't want to be conscious as my four teeth were removed.  

So after all that drama, I went to the oral surgeon and when I woke up...it didn't hurt.  :O

Sure, I was on Darvocet (this time I made sure not to get Vicodon :bleh: ) and 800mg of Ibuprofen, but I was able to move my mouth without trouble and eat (relatively) normally the next day.  Mostly, I just feel like my gums are swollen, but it's never been particularly painful, even when I didn't get to the pain meds on time one day.  From all the stories I heard, I was expecting something in the realm of childbirth pain.

Strange. The infection was agony, but the surgery was nothing.  Now, all I'm left with are four gaping holes in my gums and big bottles full of Vicodon and Darvocet.  :laughing:

So that's been a short synopsis of my activities lately.  Hopefully the journal won't be too messed up.  I'm getting too frustrated with this computer freezing every so many words.  I'll fix anything that needs fixing later, when I'm more patient.  ;)

Custom dA Journal CSS Commissions

Journal Commissions

dA Stamp - Commish Open by lynkx-ie

Journal CSS FAQ

For additional information on Claire's public CSS layouts, read the Journal CSS FAQ.


CC License

Learn more about Creative Commons Licenses.



Due to the Iowa floods this year and with Christmas hovering around the corner, I'm going to give commissions a try.  Since I am new to taking commissions, I am offering special reduced rates starting at $25 USD.

I didn't realize writing an agreement took so long.  ^^;  This has taken me all day to put together.

Why commission a journal layout?

Commissions aren't for everyone.  Even undervalued commissions can be out of budget for many (we all know this from experience as starving artists, right?).  

If you are the type of individual who likes to create your own projects, then a commission might not be the way to go.  I have several CSS layouts available to the public that can be customized and edited.  Feel free to use my existing works as a base for your own.  Of course, there is already a large collection of layouts available on dA that may be more to your liking.  Check here to see them.

However, many of us do not have the time and/or inclination to design their own CSS.   Some may have the design skills but would prefer not to learn XHTML and CSS.  While not particularly difficult, there is a learning curve in web design.  

If you feel you fit into the latter category, you may decide that it's in your best interest to commission a custom journal layout.

How to commission a custom journal CSS layout

If you decide that a commission is still for you, or have questions about the process, send me a note through deviantART.  I receive many comments a day, so inquiries by means other than noting are likely to be lost or overlooked.

Tell me as much about the preferred design as possible.  Colours, images, desired number of columns, sketches, mockups, etc are a good start.  There is never too much information at this stage.  Referencing another design, either as an existing journal layout or a traditional web page, is a big help.

I will then determine if the desired layout is something possible for me and whether or not I will accept the client's request.  As soon as the proposal is accepted I will work further with the client on the specifics of the layout and accept any graphics.  The design will be reviewed periodically with the client to ensure satisfaction.

Please be aware: if there is too little information for me to feel confident that I can meet the client's expectations, I will be forced to reject the proposal.

Commission Fees

Because I am new to the commission process, I am offering an introductory rate of $25 USD for basic designs.  If you are not American, you get an excellent deal ;) .  Advanced designs that need a lot of new graphics and/or may need extra coding work have an introductory rate of $35 USD.

Half of the fee will be collected when I accept the commission.  The rest of the fee is due within twenty-four (24) hours upon receipt of the final CSS.

Commission fees are accepted through PayPal.  This is a verified account that has been active since 2002.

Timeliness

A basic CSS will take roughly seven (7) to ten (10) days for the necessary research, creating graphics, coding the journal and bug testing the final design.

Advanced designs or those with high graphical content will take up to fourteen (14) days, possibly more depending on the design.

If I run into problems with a commission, I will note the client to discuss the issue and how it affects when the CSS is completed.

Some things to consider

If you want a very simple CSS layout, first look at the existing journal layouts on dA.  Be sure to check the license/usage agreement as many deviants do not allow alterations to their designs.  Still, there are many layouts available that can be customized to fit your needs.

If you are still interested in commissioning a CSS layout, keep in mind that deviantART journals have several design quirks.  

The journal is dynamic in the sense that it constantly changes width depending on the visitor's screen resolution and whether it is displayed on the user's profile or the journal pages.  This poses many design challenges.

Coding in deviantART is also different from normal web coding, rendering many common CSS tricks nearly impossible to duplicate in journals.  Since I am familiar with CSS and dA restrictions, I can quickly determine if certain design elements are possible and provide workable alternatives where necessary.  

Browser Compatibility

I design for Firefox 3 and multiple versions of Internet Explorer (6.0 and higher).  

At this time I do not work directly with Opera, Safari or any other minor browser.  This does not mean I cannot design for these browsers, only that it will be more difficult to troubleshoot.  The good news is that these less common browsers tend to be relatively web standards compliant and work roughly the same as Firefox.  I have heard in the past that my designs work fine in Safari.  

If you are a user of one of these browsers, I can attempt to fix issues if I am provided screenshots.

CSS Terms & Conditions

Once the client is satisfied with the completed CSS, I will turn over the final code and graphics.  No further design work and/or modifications will be done on the journal.  Additional modifications must be made by the client.  Bug fixes are excepted and will be addressed as they arise.

The client must agree to the following terms:
  1. The client must have an account with access to journal modifications.  This includes subscribers (*), beta testers ( = ), seniors (`) and dA staff ($, ¢, ^, etc.).
  2. The client may use the custom layout on any of his/her personal deviantART subscriber accounts.
  3. The client is permitted to make modifications to the custom layout.
  4. The client will not resell the custom layout.
  5. The client will not redistribute the original or modified custom layout.
  6. Upon the loss of his/her subscription, the client may choose to wholly transfer the custom layout to another deviantART user.  Once transferred, the original client may no longer use the layout, existing journals excluded.
  7. The first payment must be received before the actual layout designing commences.
  8. The final payment must be completed through Paypal within 24 hours after the receipt of the final layout.
  9. The credit for ClaireJones must not be removed.
  10. Claire Jones is permitted to manipulate the client's original images to work with the CSS layout.
  11. The client must upload any and all graphics to his/her own image hosting service (ie, Photobucket).
  12. Claire Jones is permitted to upload a screenshot only of the final CSS layout to her deviantART gallery/portfolio.
  13.   
  14. Claire Jones is permitted keep a live version of the journal layout.  This is important in case the client discovers a bug somewhere down the road or in the event that dA changes their CSS standards and something no longer works.  Old journals are converted to test new layouts, so they shouldn't be seen by the general public.
  15. Graphics for the live journal are to be kept on Claire Jones's own Photobucket account, unless the client strongly objects.  In such cases, the new URLs must be provided to the client's images.
  16. Additional graphics under Creative Common licenses may also be included into the design and remain under their existing license.  Such work must be credited on each posted journal.
  17. Terms and conditions are subject to change.


Claire Jones agrees to the following terms:
  1. Layouts will be completed in a timely manner, in accordance with the time lines set above or discussed with the client.
  2. Original images/graphics designed by the client will remain the user's exclusive property.
  3. Claire Jones will not use the original graphics given by the client in further projects, unless this is allowable by the client.
  4. Any custom graphics designed by Claire Jones will be turned over to the client, along with the source files.  These files are supplied under a Creative Commons license and may be altered as desired.  Generally, GIMP is used to design graphics, but are also exported to PSD files for Photoshop users.
  5. If the CSS is a completely original design (ie, innovative CSS code), the layout will not be used in public journal CSS or other commissions.  Note, that designing similar layouts is considered different and allowable.


Artistic and Web Experience

I have a strong background in HTML/XHTML. I am knowledgeable in web browser standards, cross-browser troubleshooting, and web trends.  Furthermore, the past couple of years have been dedicated to producing CSS driven web layouts in a variety of styles, both at deviantART and elsewhere on the Internet.  I also am familiar with javascript, PHP/MySQL, XML and RSS.

For nearly two years, I have offered dA subscribers high quality journal CSS layouts.  Most of my designs have been featured by deviants and deviantART staff in journals and news articles.  My most popular design, Simple + Clean CSS Layout, received a Daily Deviation.

Due to my varied interests, I have a mixed background in mathematics and art.  I have long had an interest in computer programming and traditional mathematics.  My first serious foray into the arts was charcoal/graphite drawing.  Later, I progressed to beading (wire, peyote and brick stitch) and pattern designing.  I've also dabbled with ceramics painting, digital painting, web design, pottery and porcelain.  More recently, I discovered fractal art, which combines my interest of math with art.

On deviantART, I am known for my fractal art, journal layouts, and application resources.  I have received a total of three Daily Deviations, one in each of these areas, and was honoured in 2007 with senior status.

Account Update

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 16, 2008, 9:21 PM

News

My account will be switching over to a "regular" account in a few days.  Due to this, and some other reasons, my account usage will be officially different.  I will only upload new works for portfolio and print purposes.  (I've paid for a print account and I'm going to use it.)  I might upload some resources for GIMP or CSS in the future, or I might decide to put those resources someplace else, like Blogger or LiveJournal.  Depends on the circumstances.  Journal updates will be more business-oriented and not personal.

The basic gist here is that I am no longer participating in the dA community .  I have neither the time nor the patience to continue doing so.  This means that I won't respond to comments in the future and comments will be disabled where possible.  In the past I dearly loved being on dA, but as time progresses, the more bitter I become.  I also dislike strangers demanding I do or explain something about a resource I've uploaded.  That has bothered me quite a bit to the point where I stopped coming to dA.  I think "frustration" sums up very well how I've felt this past year.

I do really want to thank everyone who has given me support up until now.  This is no doubt a little abrupt, because I haven't publicly talked about it before (I'm still not saying specifics).  I am amazed by some of the encouragement I have been given.  On the other hand, I never believed I would see 100k, but yet here I am wondering why I've reached this level and I'm still not a good enough fractalist, or a good enough CSS designer, or a good enough resource provider, etc.  In the end, I'm only above mediocre. What I have done is not good enough and I'm tired of trying really hard and getting nowhere.  So, I will go try to find that thing I am good at somewhere else and hopefully whatever that is will take me farther than where I have gone at dA.

Much love to everyone and continue on coding/gimping/fractaling.

Updates

Wow.  I've reached 100k (don't know why I'm so popular when I'm not even active :confused: ) and dA has a new look (that's totally messing with my CSS! :pissed: ).  Actually, I kind of like the upgrade overall.

Obviously, it's been awhile since I've been active on dA.  There are several reasons for this, but I won't go into it.    

What have I been up to?  I've been busy with all sorts of things.  Well, there was the massive flooding in Iowa, I took a PHP/MySQL class, worked on my website, started working with Javascript, got sick a bunch of times, watched anime and read a whole lot of manga.

As a sort of warning, I don't forsee me spending too much on dA.  My subscription will end soon and even though I have senior status and can still have snazzy journals, it will be too difficult to sort through the massive influx of messages I receive each day.  I've also lost much of my interest in fractals.  Since I don't want to be known for CSS on dA, there's not a lot of incentive for me to stay.

Still, I am wondering if I should push out a new calendar for 2009.  I don't have all the fractal pieces rendered and I would have to design the front and back covers.  On top of the CSS fiasco and in the midst of a personal website redesign, I'm not sure I can make it work. I also haven't been feeling well, which doesn't help.  I had some GIMP Script-Fu actions that I planned to upload, but they have definitely been pushed to the side in light of recent events.

Well, that's all the updates I can manage for today.

Important: Modernity Layouts



So...yeah.

Well, I noticed that there were a ton of notes about the CSS layouts and though I haven't read any of them yet, I have a very good idea what they're about.  

Argh.  I totally didn't want to come back and find this when I don't really have the time to deal with the problem--especially so close to Halloween.

If you have attempted to use any of the Modernity or Halloween CSS, you may have discovered something truly awful.  Fortunately, it appears to be isolated to the Modernity family of CSS.  That's definitely a relief, as I suspected there was a column layout issue that would force me to recode every single one of my layouts.

The problem lies with the header code.  It appears that the dAv6 (it's version 6 now, right?) doesn't like that menu code.  So, I removed it, edited the .journaltext padding and the issue seems to be fixed.  Haven't checked yet on Explorer, though :roll: .  I didn't check the header code at first because I was positive that it couldn't be that since the header displayed just fine.  Ha.  Of course, I had to spend all that time tinkering with column code that worked just fine.

So, where does that leave us?

Erm, I'm not really sure.  I guess I'll have to fix all of the freakin' code in the Modernity series...and the readme.  :cries:  But first I think I will create a journal with the new code, since it's a rather quick fix.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can get the menu to work.  I'm going to try some shtuff to see if I can't make something--anything--work.  It was one of the key features for this layout, so I don't want to drop it altogether.  But frankly, I'm not very optimistic.

What I really don't understand is why the menu works fine in the old journals.  :confused:  Are the old rules grandfathered in somehow?

Edit:
23 OCT 2008
Halloween CSS v.1.2 is updated and ready for download.  Took me a bit longer than expected, but I just had to change the readme to a new version.  :roll:

Edit 2:
24 OCT 2008
Modernity Candy CSS v.1.2 is fully updated and ready for use.

I need to make some tweaks to the original Halloween CSS and should be able to upload the final version tonight or tomorrow.  Don't worry.  It works, but there are some details that need to be corrected.  Deviant Modernity will be updated shortly.

So, here is what I have so far.  You can read more about the specifics on the deviation itself.

I'm trying not to use my own work to fill out the rest of the wallpaper.  What I would like to do is get three more 200x200 squares and fill the rest out with 100x100/200x100 pieces.  Of course, I could always just use an additional five or six large pieces and remove one of the smaller pieces.  Or, a combination of both large and small pieces.  

I'm still up in the air.  Depends on what else I can get.

~Claire


Possible CSS Layout

Due to my growing dislike of the Simple + Clean layouts, I decided to rework it to look a little nicer.  

Here's a link to the live CSS: clairejones.deviantart.com/jou…

If there is enough interest, I will consider finishing the readme and releasing it.  Otherwise, I won't and retain my sanity...

...that readme is killing me. >_>

CWP: Deadline Extended

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 9, 2008, 6:51 AM



Community Wallpaper Project


Due to some recent personal issues, I have not been on dA much.  Because of this and the amount of entries already received, I would like to extend the entry deadline to Monday, January 14th.

I have received a fair amount of entries already, but I do not think I it is enough for a complete wallpaper.  Extending the deadline will give me time to collect myself and (hopefully) get more entries.

There are a lot of messages and notes in my Message Center, but because of where I am right now, I am not sure when I can respond.  So, just a warning.

Sick 'n' Stuff

First off, thanks so much for all of the well-wishes I received while I was away!  :glomp:

That is the sickest I have been since I was pregnant four years ago.  It's been well over a week and I still have symptoms.  Don't get me wrong.  It's not like I'm seriously ill with pneumonia or something, but I was caught off guard by the severity of the illness.  I'm used to getting sick for a day or two.

I admit that it was good to take some time off from dA and regroup, even though there is a ton of things I need to get done now.  I probably took off more time than was necessary, but I think it did me good in the end.  :aww:

So, back to business.  :faint:  I know that I need to assist with CSS layouts, some of which I had been working on prior to my temporary departure, and there is a website link I need to get on my website asap.  Of course, there is also a weeks worth of messages to look over.  Anyway, give me a little time to catch up...well, as caught up as I ever am.  :XD:

Oh, and the starter in our car died, so we're going to have to tow it somewhere and get it fixed.  Needless to say, that was a very unpleasant surprise we discovered Saturday night.  Hopefully that will get done tomorrow--and also that the starter will be the only thing wrong with the car.

Etsy! + Advice Please

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 8, 2007, 12:06 PM



Etsy!

Long before I discovered Apophysis, I was a beader.  I have successfully sold my work at many craft fairs and through the bead shop I used to work for when I lived in Washington State.  So, I finally broke down and opened up an Etsy shop, where I now sell my beaded work. :excited:  

What I'm showcasing now are my beaded Santa earrings.  Or, as I prefer to call them, "Those Stupid Santa Earrings".  Of course I don't usually call them that at selling venues, but their popularity eludes me.  Even my husband likes them.  :confused:

Beaded Santa Earrings - Large by ClaireJones
Stupid Santa Earrings

So, be sure to take a look at what I have available!  I'm still getting everything set up, but I have other items other than the :santa: earrings. I think there is still time to order before Christmas.  :nod:


The problem...

In my lifetime, I have learned many art genres: jewelry, wire work, beading, fractals, polymer clay, graphite drawing, pottery, porcelain, some digital painting, etc.  If you look at the list, you might see one popular category missing.  

That would be photography.  I've never been interested in learning photography, apart from those fleeting moments when I'm studying the clouds above and think: "Hey, I should do stock photography...nevermind."

I am having a terrible time photographing my work, as you may have noticed.  I've read a few tutorials on dA about shooting artisan crafts, but the photos are still awful and I feel very unprofessional.

Basically, I'm trying to make them suck less.

What I have:
I am currently working with an HP Photosmart M417.  It says it is a 5.2 MP camera (bleh).  I have covered the flash with a white piece of paper like I read in one tutorial and use the Macro setting.  My "studio", if you will, is a computer desk that has natural sunlight that filters in the early afternoon.

I've had the camera for two years and only use it occasionally, but already it is on the fritz.  I can no longer zoom out once I've zoomed in and the flash setting button won't activate.  :(  I intend to try some new batteries, but I don't feel that's the issue.

Any tips are greatly appreciated!

~Claire


US Postage

Have you ever thought to yourself, "Gee, Claire's fractals would make great stamps"?

Honestly, neither have I until I went to Zazzle and saw that I could put my fractal work onto US postage.  It's a lot of fun to see my work on stamps, not to mention surreal.  I also have buttons available.

Modernity CSS Release

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 6, 2007, 7:15 PM



Modernity CSS Series

Modernity Candy CSS v.1.2.2 by ClaireJones    Deviant Modernity CSS v.1.3 by ClaireJones    Halloween CSS v.1.2.2 by ClaireJones


Release Info

I am pleased to announce that the official Modernity CSS Layout has just passed the final bug check and is about to be released for public use.  :excited:

All I need to do now is copy the new code snippets into all of the CSS versions (that would be 24 total) and do a quick update of the readme.  Please note that Deviant Modernity CSS and Halloween CSS will also be updated with the code fixes.

It felt like everything connected to this CSS took forever, from the bug fixes and reaadme, to the preview image.  It is a great relief to have this finished, even though I have the hunch that it will not be the most popular of my CSS designs.  Nevertheless, it is an accomplishment for me because I spent so hours and days working out the CSS to be as compatible as possible not only in Firefox, but also IE6 and IE7.  I don't know how many non-web designers know this, but IE displays very differently from one version to another.  It was difficult choosing which version to favor sometimes, but in the end, I usually went with IE6 since it is still more widely used (not to mention, far buggier than IE7).

For some reason, I had difficulty letting go of this project, but apparently, it worked out for the best.  I had the files zipped and waiting for upload, when I discovered a horrible error.  When there wasn't enough content in the right column, the left column would flow into the Moodbox in one of the journal views.  In an interesting discovery, I found that this was not a problem in either IE6 or IE7.  One way around this is simply to have more content in the right than the left, but that's not very professional, nor does it take various screen resolutions into consideration.  Instead, I had to go through the code and try several different methods to address the problems.  I also had to continually load the journals into IE6 and IE7 to check the layouts.  I admit to putting this off for a few weeks until I felt more motivated (um, that would be this week).  

That was not the only error I discovered (#2 in the "Browser Compatibility" section below).  It is something that I tried my best to address, but one of three things I can't get to work in either version of IE.  The good news is that this problem has been corrected as much as possible.  It just doesn't look as good as the Firefox version.

What is really sad is how much time I spent tweaking the code on the readme.  Technically, I should remove the table from the layout and do it all in CSS, but it's a readme and frankly, I don't care that much.  Hey, it looks good and it's easy to update (Simple + Clean v.1.2 is based directly on it).  Anyway, at some point while I was working on the readme, I realized that I had been tweaking the code--please note, not the content, just the layout--for over an hour.  If I was to be really honest (which I'm not), I would put that figure closer to three.

Ah, what can I say.  I find tweaking code really fun.  It's something that I can do and not have to think too much.  I know that sounds weird, but it's not a brain-intensive activity for me.  Usually it's more like spending fifteen minutes trying to decide if the margin-top should be 15px or 20px.  Or maybe 10px.  No, back to 15.  Hmm, 18.  As you can see, not a whole lot of brain cells being used there.

Before I get (more) technical, I want to thank thespook for giving me help on making IE-specific code and for showing me MultipleIEs, a program that, well, installs multiple versions of IE at once.  It has made my life a nightmare trying to make the code compatible, but the end result was well worth it.  :D

~Claire


What you get

The zip file includes much stuff, for lack of a better word, to help you set up your journal as you see fit.

The Modernity CSS Layout comes in two versions: one column and two column.

It also comes in eight colours, along with an update of the Halloween CSS Layout, which is much sleeker and aesthetically pleasing than the first.

There is a preview of each colour in both column versions to help you decide which Modernity is right for you.

You also get many of extras.  There are non-Fella versions of all eight colours, as well as XCF/PSD sources for the graphics.  Please note that you will have to mess around with the PSD versions as they are XCF conversions and not originals.  For example, I think some of the layer modes are incorrect.  The layers themselves should be fine.


Browser Compatibility

The Modernity series is meant to be fully compatible in both web-compliant browsers, like Firefox, and non-compliant browsers (we're takin' 'bout you, Explorer).  I mostly succeeded in my efforts, but you should be aware of the differences.

1. One main problem was the background image.  In IE6, it was a mess no matter what I tried.  My solution was to simply have the background be black, even though IE7 displayed the image fine.  I would rather have both versions be plain, but work, over working in one and looking atrocious in the other.

2. The default alignment for the left column is centered.  I felt it was best since I figured it would be primarily used for images and links, etc.  However, I wanted my own links to be left-aligned and created a seperate element (.leftside) that was later incorporated into the Modernity series.  

Well, lo and behold, while I was bug checking the column issue, I noticed the links at the bottom of each section didn't display in IE7 and had ginormous gaps in IE6.  Oh, and parts of the grey background didn't show through in certain areas.  Basically, a total disaster.  I later understood why these errors had occurred and corrected as many as possible, but the gaps remained, much to my chagrin.  

Is it a serious problem?  Not really.  It bugs me from a layout perspective.  At least all of the links are visible and the background issue is resolved.  You can get around these problems by simply not using the .sidetext element in your design.

3. If you use the two column version, you might notice that the right side column heading doesn't span all the way (it's short about three pixels).  This only occurs on the headings that push against the left column.  Any heading located below the left column is fine.  I know why this happens, but because of the code, I can't do much.  I won't go into it; I'll just say that it is due to an ugly, ugly hack.  Fortunately, the problem is minimized with the new layout colour scheme, even though I haven't fixed anything.

4. The last main issue with IE is the menu descriptions: they don't show.  I did attempt to fix them, but it didn't bother me that much.  At least the main links are where they should be now.

All in all, I think those four issues are neither serious nor problematic.  I've done much worse on some of my other layouts.  :giggle:

Fractalist.  Fractophile.  Apoholic. Whether you are a fractal n00b or a veteran, I'm looking for you!  Yes, that's right. Everyone is invited to participate.

Inspired by the efforts of Gurly and Project-4, I want to piece together a polyptych wallpaper (composed of small, individual fractal pieces, like this example clairejones.deviantart.com/art… ).  Many of you in the fractal community are aware that both of the collaborative efforts mentioned above are currently in a state of limbo.  

This is not a contest.  There is no winner or prize given away, less the finished wallpaper.  This is a community collaboration for everyone to join together and make one unique wallpaper from many images, while having a little fun.  I do plan on offering a special stamp you can use in journals once you've made your first submission (yet to be uploaded), something along the lines of "I participated in the Community Wallpaper Project".

Please spread the word!  Let's make this effort a success.   :aww:

~Claire


Important Dates

Deadline: December 31st
Finished Piece Release: January 2008

Submission Guidelines
  1. Must be sized (in pixels) as one of the following:
    • 100x100 (small square)
      • 100x200 or 200x100 (medium rectangle)
        • 200x200 (large square)

    • Place this release in the deviation description: "I give ClaireJones permission to use this piece in the "Community Wallpaper Project" and upload the final work as a submission to dA."

    • Submit the square/rectangle to your Scrapbook (or main gallery, if desired) and note me with a link/thumb to the deviation (thumbs are preferred).

FAQ

Does it have to be a fractal?
Yes.  Any fractal generating application may be used, such as Apophysis, Ultra Fractal, XenoDream, Mind Boggling Fractals, Fractint, Fractal Forge, Agony, Fractal Explorer, Tierazon, ChaosPro, Chaoscope, SterlingWare etc.  Also allowed are layered fractals, but do keep in mind that such detail will be lost on a small image.  Post-editing is fine.

What colours are preferred?
The more colours, the better!

How many submissions am I allowed?
Currently, there is no limit, so start sending them to me.  Although, please be reasonable.  Fifteen is probably overkill.  ;)

Will you use all of my submissions?
In the case of excess submissions, not all pieces from a deviant will be used.  However, I will make sure that every deviant who participates in this project will be represented in the final design.

Is it fine to add borders or text to my submission?
Do not add additional elements like borders or text.  Just the plain fractal is perfect.

Will I get credit for my participation?
All deviants who participate will be displayed in the deviation description.

I've got a question...
If you have questions, suggestions or any other issue with the Community Wallpaper Project, don't hesitate to drop me ( ClaireJones ) a note or visit the original journal entry clairejones.deviantart.com/jou… .

Calling all fractalists!

Community Wallpaper Project

:new:  I have just released a news article to help spread the word.

Read it here: news.deviantart.com/article/38…


CWP Info

Fractalist.  Fractophile.  Apoholic. Whether you are a fractal n00b or a veteran, I'm looking for you!  Yes, that's right. Everyone is invited to participate.

Inspired by the efforts of Gurly and Project-4, I want to piece together a polyptych wallpaper (composed of small, individual fractal pieces, like this example clairejones.deviantart.com/art… ).  Many of you know that both of the collaborative efforts mentioned above are currently in a state of limbo.  

As I was reflecting over the unfortunate situation last night, a thought occurred to me: I could start a similar community project.  It's not as though I am any less qualified and I'm always kicking myself for lost opportunities (hey, that sounds like a good idea for a club...oh, someone just beat me to it).  This time, I want to have a community project with a more reasonable goal and time schedule.  For example, I will collect submissions only through the month of December.

This is not a contest.  There is no winner or prize given away, less the finished wallpaper.  This is a community collaboration for everyone to join together and make one unique wallpaper from many images, while having a little fun.  I do plan on offering a special stamp you can use in journals once you've made your first submission (yet to be uploaded), something along the lines of "I participated in the Community Wallpaper Project".

Please spread the word!  Let's make this effort a success.  Bear with me as I'm still trying to put this together.  Stamp donations and journal mentions are greatly appreciated.  If all goes well, I would love to do a second.  :aww:

I really don't think I could get away with that.  :confused:  All deviants who participate will be displayed in the deviation description.

Will I get paid?
No.

You're calling it the "Community Wallpaper Project"?!
Got a better name?  Send it to me!  :D

Project Ryan's Hope Stamp by Bound-By-Leather   Support Ryan Stamp by RyansArmy

Ryan Christopher Brumpton is One Year old. For most of his life he has been on Chemotherapy as he has a rare brain tumor which was diagnosed at three months old. Ryan's prognosis is somewhat unclear as the doctors have only treated one other patient with tumor similarity which was almost ten years ago.

Shtuff

Bleh.  I'm just getting over my second major illness this fall.  And right after I finally recovered from the first one.  :no:  My spirits are not improved since I just stepped down from IFDD.  I knew it would be difficult, even though I had already decided to do so a couple of days earlier.  It's still really hard for me, because I had wanted that position so much and it was very important to me.    There was an updated article regarding 3D Hack resources that never got released, but maybe I will do it under my own username instead.

I am re-evaluating what I'm doing here on dA, so bear with me.  I still have the full Modernity CSS pack to finish up (not released due to a serious issue just discovered).  After that, no more CSS, barring some really amazing design (unlikely).  That's not how I wanted to be known on dA and offering CSS layouts has caused me more trouble than it's worth.  I'm not even that good.  :confused:  Since I am more known for the CSS layouts, that leaves my fractal work in an undetermined state.  I'm still deciding if I will continue to pursue them at all.  I have many unreleased pieces that will eventually make their way into my gallery, but as for new ones, I'm not sure.  I only have so much time and I think I have spent too much of it trying to achieve something I couldn't when I was neglecting other areas that had more promise.  I'm thinking of switching gears artistically and getting mentored.  I'm going back and forth as to which group I will contact.  In the meantime, I will probably switch to community oriented activities on dA, rather than artistic ones.

So, I think I will put up the features and call it a day.  Also, please be aware that my noting policy has drastically changed.

~Claire

The internet experience is certainly a mixed bag.  While there are many bad/dirty/disgusting things that can be found online, there are also times when people come together in a pursuit of a common goal.  Truly, the internet can be amazing.  

Because I have seen what deviants are capable of in past fundraising endeavors, I would like to bring attention to Ryan:
Ryan Christopher Brumpton is One Year old. For most of his life he has been on Chemotherapy as he has a rare brain tumor which was diagnosed at three months old. Ryan's prognosis is somewhat unclear as the doctors have only treated one other patient with tumor similarity which was almost ten years ago.

Ryans next MRI is in December, nobody knows what the result could be. Financial problems are becoming a problem as Ryans Mother cannot work as Ryan is always sick. If Ryans situation in December becomes worse then Fundraising will begin to take him to MD Anderson for a consultation in the United States.

~Excerpt from RyansArmy

Spreading the Word

Please do what you can for Ryan by spreading the word in any way possible.  Donate art.  Create/use stamps if you are a dA subscriber/senior/staff.  Use signature banners at other online forums. Both stamps and banners can be found at RyansArmy.  There is also an option to Paypal funds directly to Ryan's mother.

The contest

At the moment, there is a contest running until January 2, 2008 to create a MySpace thank you graphic.  Enter and have a chance to win great prizes!  Find out more about the contest: ryansarmy.deviantart.com/journ…

Sick 'n' Stuff

Yep, I've caught a bug.  And not just something small, but a really big one.  The kids are also sick, especially the three year-old.  He is worse than I am.  At first, I thought it was only a cold, but I've begun to suspect that we actually have the flu.  Needless to say, it was a very fun weekend.  :|  The worst seems to be over, but I think it will still be a few days to get back up to full speed.

Even though I am not doing too well, I've still managed to answer some of my messages today.  But my brain is mush, so be gentle with me!  :XD:

I apologize if this journal is less than coherent.  I need some more sleep.  :sleep:

I stumbled across this site by way of the stamp above.  It's a very addictive site that donates 10 grains of rice for every correct answer to the vocabulary game.  I have a great understanding of linguistics and other languages, but on a vocabulary level...I am not so good.  I've only managed to get up to level 44 and about 80% of the words I figured out through etymology.

So, read the news article here news.deviantart.com/article/36… and join in on the fun!  I was very surprised, but when I added up my score from two days, I had donated 8000 grains of rice.  :O


CSS Query

Thanks to all who responded to the previous journal I had written about CSS bugs.  I skimmed a few of them when I could a bit ago and will try to get back to those who offered very helpful suggestions.  :aww:

For my other layouts, I created designs that I liked.  Considering that I am creating layouts for the community now, it occurred to me that maybe I should check to see if these designs are liked by the populace before I release them.  :D

Even though I am asking for input, it doesn't necessarily mean I will implement it.  Just a warning.

So, let's start.  I'm going to have this layout (both 1 and 2 columns) in several colours (tentatively set at red, light grey, pink, blue, orange, maybe dA green with a running fella).  The top of the journal will be flush with the top boundary.  I initially thought that having the transparent bit at the top would be inventive, or something, but absolutely HATE it now.  Definitely gone.  That will clear up some of the IE problems right there.  

Now, about the font.  Keep the serif or try a sans-serif font--I'm looking at Trebuchet--for the official layout?  I know it's hard to decide without seeing it, but I wondered if people have an automatic preference for either serif or sans.

I'm also thinking of centering the heading text in the left column and left-aligning the rest of the text.  Do consider that the reason the text is currently center-aligned is because it simplified the combined use of text and images.  

And...will any consider using the final layout if I offer it here on dA?

Any thoughts are appreciated!


Noting Guidelines

Please note me with any questions you may have regarding my resources (tutorials, CSS, etc.).  Comments get lost very easily with the volume my message center receives on a daily basis and there is a good chance I will not see it.

When noting/e-mailing me for help, please be specific in your initial correspondence.  You don't have to be super polite; you can just tell me what help you need and I will see if I can be of use.  (Although, don't be outright rude either, please.)

Please be aware that I am not here to teach anyone basic CSS/HTML or Apophysis techniques (that's what my resources are for).  At this point, I can only troubleshoot.

Thanks for understanding!  :aww:

noun Mathematics, Physics.
a geometrical or physical structure having an irregular or fragmented shape at all scales of measurement between a greatest and smallest scale such that certain mathematical or physical properties of the structure, as the perimeter of a curve or the flow rate in a porous medium, behave as if the dimensions of the structure (fractal dimensions) are greater than the spatial dimensions.

[Origin: < F fractale, equiv. to L frāct(us) broken, uneven (see fractus) + -ale -al2; term introduced by French mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot (born 1924) in 1975]
