I just launched a new portfolio site for HannaCecilia make up & hair.
The most interesting technical aspect of the site is the background image. The idea is that the pictures should appear to be stationary, while the camera/you is moving. The window should also be resizeable to any size. To do this is ActionScript without having a huge background image (to work with my 23″ cinema display it would have to be enourmous) was a bit of a challenge. But thanks to the bitmap API in Flash 8 I created a routine which monitors the position of the camera and the size of the window and repeats the background image (which is about 800x800px) to completely fill the window, as well as remove parts that are no longer needed in order not to waste too much memory.
