I was playing around today with cascading style sheet coding trying to create unique and interesting ways to frame images. I began working on a way to give an image some depth looking into the frame using perspective geometries and came up with the following. There are some more sophisticated things I've done in the past with say gradient fill techniques in Photoshop, however with CCS my aim was a frame with simple code that wouldn't need to be re-edited much each time beyond plugging an image's X and Y dimensions on a spread sheet then inputing the few calculated values into the .html file. I wanted a dark frame that didn't detract from the image while adding something interesting beyond just using the usual black or dark gray background. With the following I can easily change the dark background color which adds a nice yet subtle effect.
Note for comparison, the three images are from my recent fall photography work for which I also have a link on my website homepage to a fall foliage road trip story that includes a slideshow that shows the same images in a java script slideshow that uses a black background. ...David
