Fluid Image Rescaling Without Flash
Published March 17, 2008
I didn’t want to post this site to the gallery because it doesn’t fit the criteria for approved sites, but it does have a very cool feature that I think is worth sharing. If you take a look at SHOTVIEW, you’ll find what appears to be a typical, fixed-width image portfolio. If, however, you resize the browser window, the images rescale to fill the available space as the footer stays fixed to the bottom of the viewport. Then, when you release the browser and settle on a window size, the image rescales and is updated with a decent quality version. It’s very elegant stuff, and apparently it doesn’t use Flash at all. Check it out.
