Albumarium has some unique high-quality images as well
Cause it's a shitty shot. You have 400x300 rectangle to show what you got. If you don't convert on that rectangle, nobody cares about the rest. That's the game.
What are you on about? No one even mentioned pixel hinting or anything related to it.
Of course that using more vector-based graphics in UI is going to be the future, but this is about rasters. Assets with absolute size.
The question is whether we are stuck with @2x, @3x, ... file naming for raster assets given that @1x will be (or already is) less and less relevant. Is it going to be a legacy thing similar to the QWERTY keyboard layout that didn't change even when progress in technology made it nonsensical?
You are not making any sense, Simone.
Standard behaviour is to open a link within the same page/tab. User can always choose to open link in a new tab with browser-specific actions.
I find it annoying when a site forces target _blank for links. Let me decide what I want to do.
Oh, if you have a couple to spare, send one to firstname.lastname@example.org as well, please :)
I really dislike the tone of the article—talking from a position of self-proclaimed expert holding the truth. Without any room for discussion. It's also taking it to an extreme.
There are so many things to consider when designing forms. Is it for mobile? Then perhaps floating labels would be by far the better solution. Is it just a login + a password field? Then using labels could potentially harm the aesthetics and even add visual noise (saying they are essential for the form to function is simply not true—again, depends on whole bunch of other stuff).
Label being essential for a search field is simply non-sense. Arguments:
A) the search icon with a placeholder serves as a good enough visual cue, strong label won't add anything (same kind of data-less rhetoric Adam is using)
B) That can be easily solved in the code
C) Just don't make the field too small. Also—again—solvable with a code, making the area larger.
