Screen Grab Confab, vol. I
~ 25 August 2004 ~
Got skillz with a z? Time to bring it and serve us what you got.
In what could soon become the wicked sister of Speak Up’s Logo Smackdown, the Screen Grab Confab gives YOU the chance to show and tell and US the chance to savor the flavor.
Here are the rules:
- Do a screen grab of whatever you’re working on right now. It could be a layout, it could be print, it could even be code.
- Crop a 320px × 320px portion of it at 100%. Obviously, the entire screen grab won’t fit within those dimensions, but the point is to only whet our appetites and make us want more.
- Post as a comment using <img> with the grab hosted on your own server. Feel free to link the image to a full-size version, but only the 320px square is required.
After that, sit back and enjoy the show. Post feedback as needed.
