kimtown will be CLOSED for Memorial Day

kimtown will be CLOSED on Monday, May 31, 2010 in observance of Memorial Day.

For our clients in other countries not familiar with this day of remembrance, here is what it is:
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I.

Difference of Tiled and Full Background explained

Many of you have asked what the difference is between the tiled background option and the full image background option of the SPLASH YOURSELF! Editor. Here is an explanation of the difference and new samples 🙂

Tiled (Seamless) Background:
A seamless background is a pattern, design or texture that covers the entire Web page. Seamless backgrounds, or seamless tiles, are small graphics, normally 100 by 100 pixels or 150 by 150 pixels, of muted or plain colors, light or heavy textures, scenic views, soft or bold designs or various other patterns. They repeat left and right and up and down to cover the entire viewing area of the background.

Full Background:
The full background is one image sized 1800x900px for our editors. This background style covers only 1800x900px but can be faded on the edges (in Photoshop) to create an edgeless background.

I hope this helps in understand the different editors 🙂
