New responsive blog design, and DVD downloads!

Dec 4

In Computer Technology, News at 7:39am

Hey Gang, Drew here…..

A couple of really cool announcements to make, that have been several months in the making…

First off, our blog is now fully responsive, meaning that it’s been optimized for any size and orientation of computer screen, tablet, or mobile device.  This is a huge step in making the blog that much more easily accessible for all you mobile blog readers out there.

If you’re looking at this blog on your computer, just drag in the corner of your browser, and you’ll see the blog adapt as it gets smaller…pretty cool stuff.  A huge thanks to Josh and Andy at Few Loose Screws for helping educate us in this department, and getting it all up to speed.

We’re also about to launch a brand new, responsive version of our “What’s in the Bag” page, with tons of product descriptions, photos, etc.

Here’s two examples of what the blog looks like on an iPad and iPhone, when held vertically (turn it on it’s side, and it’ll adapt as well)…

More big news: The Language of Light DVD is now officially available as an Instant Download, and it’s in HD!  We know that getting the DVD on an international scale hasn’t always been easy, due to import taxes, shipping, etc., so we’re very happy to now be able to offer this to you.

Further, we’ve included several new options as part of the DVD download..

– Each download includes two versions to choose from: 720p and full 1080p HD.

– The entire DVD download is now available for $129.99 (the hard copy is $159.99)

– You can even download individual DVD chapters, if this is of more interest to you.

If you want to check out in-depth descriptions of what each chapter is about, just click on the INSTANT DOWNLOAD link at the top of the Language of Light page…

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

(Many thanks to Drew who, in between road time, has been laboring on this design update and the download option for a long while now….) More tk….

Doesn’t seem to work with my IE. I’ll check on my wife’s ipad.

Just my opinion but you really should not use novelty type for headlines. In the design world that’s setting your camera to Automatic.

Nice work!

Would you consider offering an “HD upgrade” to those who’ve purchased the DVD version?

I might even be willing to pay a small, reasonable upgrade fee :)

Looks great, I think you are using the same font I chose for my site as well for your headings. Love your stuff, are you going to be teaching anything at Photoshop World in Orlando in April?

Very cool, thanks for thinking of those of us not in America: I was bitten by import tax on a North American DVD once before and vowed never again. Happy I won’t have to miss out :)

Is there an ipad app on the way?? :)

Very Cool. When it comes to tablets and smart phones I am a Mongo, but I can see how this is an important step to making the blog more accessible. People comment to me that they cannot view my website on their mobile devices, I guess I need to address that sometime.

Speaking for the international crowd, a big THANK YOU for the download concept. Here in the jungle I do not have the line speed to download it, but may try it when I am in a place with some decent connectivity.

It stil doesn’t check check the writing though; you have to do that yourself.

“meaning that it’s been optimized for for any size “

Fred says:

See, I check.

Stil should be still. Now if I had admin access I’d fix it.

Hi Joe! Thanks for that downloads option! This is a great step for international followers. I bought your DVD last year and Adorama sent it as “Photographic Equipment”…. so import taxes raised up that almost doubled the price of the DVD :-(
Greetings from Barcelona!!

Drew. Like the new look on a big screen. But on an iPad, the font is too small to read, and I can’t use the finger pinch to zoom in. Any way to fix that?

Drew Gurian says:

Kevin- Thanks for the feedback, and will be in touch with our designer about it soon!

Great solution! If the DVD was in Italian, it would be perfect…

Getting the DVD to Denmark was easy….
you just find Joe on a stage infront of 500 pro Photografes and ask why the DVD isnt for sale in Denmark….
then add some tears and cry alittle, then the Mercyfull and big McNally will find in hes father-heart the mercy to give you one signed…..
Thanks Joe…. The DVD is Remarkable, realy good, and can teach everyone something.
the only thing is that the Pizza-guy looks realy old??? 😉
