Fixed or Liquid – A Solution

A few weeks ago, I described a problem we were having with the current homepage design. Namely, the large photos that provided the visual punch in the design were not being displayed to their best effect when viewed with various screen resolution settings or in various browser window widths.

This problem was hamstringing our photo choices so much that we began developing some fixed-width alternative designs in case we couldn’t come up with a solution.

I think we’ve come up with a solution.

Combining CSS (with many thanks to Noah at the Eastman School for his help) with the Javascript that rotates the images on refresh, we now have a gallery of homepage photos that automatically rescale to accommodate the user’s browser and screen configurations.
