The One in the New Skin

Ah, if you're reading this on ab.com, you'll see that I threw up a quick new layout last night. I consider this one an ~in between~ layout until I can actually redesign the coding. After trying to futz around with Photoshop Elements I realized I needed to download real Photoshop to actually accomplish anything, so I'm currently playing around with a trial version of Photoshop CS5. It is... very different than CS3, which was the Photoshop I used on my last computer. Well, in any case, you'll have to forgive me because my web design skills are a wee bit rusty. This is the original image of the girls, if you're interested:

Actually, I made it last night while I was watching Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I usually need something on in the background when I'm working in Photoshop, but this posed a bit of a challenge because it was in Swedish with English subtitles, so I kept having to look between the windows which slowed everything down. The movie is excellent, by the way--really, one of the best I've seen this year. I'm really bummed that they're going to make an English language version, if only because there's no way they'd ever be able to improve on the original.

More later--must keep writing!!
