Screen Grab Confab, vol. II
~ 22 November 2004 ~
Given the success of Screen Grab Confab vol. I, let’s enjoy a repeat.
Vol. I gave us a sneak peek at a few notables, such as Dan Cederholm’s TOevolt ’04 presentation, Lousco Labradors, and CSS Zen Garden #126. I expect Vol. II to be no different. Pressure’s on.
Here’s a recap of 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.
I’ll chime in a little later and thereby give someone else the honor of going first this time around. Please enjoy.

This is great, I’m currently trying to pull myself away from repeated (and very amateurish compared to everyone else here) edits of my site and back to boring .NET testing mojo.
I, along with a few others from our school, The Art Institute of California - San Diego, are working on a tutorials site. The intent of the site is to help not only fellow students and other beginning designers but to help anyone that may have questions or problems with web and/or print design.
Currently working on a small website for the writer, Thomas Bloor.

I can’t believe all these great designs. So much talent out there. And how those Mac screenshots look so much nicer than Windows ones.
I am getting a kick out of all the “intranet” shots!
It is mighty fun getting a glimpse of all these backend applications for which you would of never had the opportunity otherwise.
Keep em’ coming!

@Cameron: Really lovely and inspireing idea.

Working on a redesign of a popular blog.
This is a slice from one of the final mockups.
Redesign must be green. :)
HELP! I need some wisdom…on creating backgrounds! I see a lot of need ideas on the screenshots, and I’m stumped. Even Cameron’s BG - how did he do it? And the pixel ones? Anyone got any resources?
Got inspired and decided to play with some type and design elements… with a poem I wrote when I was 14

I’m trying to squeeze in a little time over the holiday to finish my personal site. It doesn’t look like it’s going to happen this weekend, though.
Just redesigned my personal site using wicked worn brushes:
Just finishing the very last steps of a concept and its realization. It was presented using Apple’s outstanding Keynote.app. Right now I was collecting future tasks mentioned in this document. The web site concept was created for a B2B marketplace for industrial goods.
Keynote brings up extra crisp transitions for those who like it. It took me only 3 hours for a 29 page presentation including screenshots and importing, transitions, content and finetuning.
Shockingly boring project work.
I loved this thread, but I’m no designer, so I wanted to see some more code. Here’s some for the program some of you might use for your blogs.
Working on (yet another) redesign of my site

From my browser-rpg on which i’m currently working. ^_^.
Yet another redesign in the works …
This is my color tool that I’ve been working on and updating over the last little while. It’s mostly finished, with just a few minor tweaks left to do.
That being said, the level of skill displayed in these screengrabs makes me cry… And inspires me to greater heights! (grin)
A design for my personal weblog I’m finally satisfied with. However, please be aware that this is still a WIP.

One of the many many property sites I’m working on.
To spice up a support contact:
Didn’t know if anyone else has this problem, but when viewing this post in Safari, there is an unclosed anchor tag and everything after Kim Siever’s post is a link to her image.
subsite within a site.
Brian, I’ve checked the comments in MT and don’t see any unclosed tags in Kim’s comment or those around it. (Kim is male, btw.)
Any one else having the same issue as Brian?
Thanks Cameron for an enlightening look at the work of others. There is a good dose of inspiration here.

Just working on my web site… the usual :)
Those are some really cool looking sites.
Oh, it would be really cool, if everyone could set their image to open in a new window (<img src=”image.jpg” target=”_blank”>). Otherwise, its a pain for all the images to load again, if I have to come back.
My computer crashed…:(
A comp of a personal venture which might one day make me money or cost me money. :\

Hacking on Cocoalicious to help fit it into my own surf-and-grab workflow. (and upping the count of working-with-text screenshots :-)
Even tho I already contributed, I’d like to share this experimental mess I just made with Photoshop. I’m kinda new with this “wicked aqua look” and just tried to do something even remotely similar. I guess it came out just ok for a newbie :o)
Just ironing out some Win IE bugs in my new site layout. Nothing very exciting.
A preliminary work in progress for a CSS Zen Garden submission… Hopefully can get it done by next week to submit. :)
