I am just slight ashamed to admit the two things I’ve learned today. I have studied how positioning works in CSS, but never really tested it. Today I had to to use absolute positioning for a website, so finally I had a chance to put in practice, whet theoretically I already knew. It was a pleasure to see it workings after I figured out the difference between various ways of positioning with CSS with the help of this video.
I also read about and seen the “path” tool in Adobe Photoshop, but never used it. Today I had to and I am slightly clearer on the concept. There is still a lot I don’t know, including tips and best practices for its use, but at least I believe I am initiated and on the right “path.”
The reason for my shame: I should have been using these for years by now. But I never had a real need before, so it’s better later than never, right?
Today’s links with my comments in italics:
- Jason Stinnett offered 3 Ways to Use Google’s New Search by Image for Link Building: get background info, search for guest posters, find coverage that didn’t result in a link.
I didn’t even know about the existence of the “search by image” feature tool. Here is how it works, “Just specify an image, and you’ll find other similar or related images as well as relevant results from across the Web.” Sounds fun, but the results weren’t very impressive with the first few images I tried.
- Greg Finn pointed to an official Google video confirming that On Google+ “Non-User Profiles” Will Be Shut Down.
This means we don’t have to rush with implementing Google+ presence for our clients as for now only individuals can be there and the business variety of the project will come later.
