Gish Kids at Easter...
In my never-ending struggle to enhance and expand my computer graphics skills to an even higher eschelon of expertise, I was just playing around the other day with some of the newer features of Photoshop (splicing images), when I came up with the following.

Just run your mouse over the picture and the various elements to see what happens. By selecting a child of choice and clicking with the mouse, you are swept away to the relevant web page.

Lennart Gish (15 yrs)
Lennart Gish (15 yrs) Marlies Gish (14 yrs)
Sabien Gish (11 yrs)
Marlies Gish (14 yrs) Maarten Gish (8 yrs)
The fearsome foursome ready for the kill.

Just thought someone out there might be interested and enjoy the picture of my fantastic kids as much as I.

Great looking family Kiffin! And a good programming job too! ;-)

now you've made me curious as to the benefits or drawbacks when you compare the use of sliced images with a single image-mapped image. Do you have any thoughts? (I still haven't figured slicing out anyway - haven't had the need)

Well, for one reason sliced images are harder to steal from the web!! But not impossible...

As far as any real benefits are concerned, I am not quite sure what other tools are available to make for example image-mapped pictures. Actually, there is such a tool in Macromedia Homesite, but I have never used it. In response to the questions, I gave it a go and boy it is ten times easier than all that slicing and dicing using Photoshop. One advantage besides being harder to steal is the fact that within Photoshop you can also define mouseover effects more easily, like blurring, zooming or another picture.

All sounds very confusing to me. But, hey, the end result? A great photo, oh, and a great looking bunch of kids. You must be proud... on all counts! ;-)
