We Have Drop Shadows!

January 7, 2007 by · 1 Comment 

Alright then! We've got drop shadows! The designer of this K2 skin put out a new version that includes drop shadows around the post area. The three skin images are still bugged though. Every single one is a JPEG and they're all way larger than they need to be. I slimmed them down from 65KB to 4.5KB (using Paint.NET and pngcrush), putting the front page of this site under 80KB, including HTML, images, CSS, and JavaScript.

Next up to bat, fixing the problem with the right edge of italic text being cut off if it hits the edge of the content column. If anyone knows how to fix that, let me know.

    Heh... I took another 3KB off by crushing all of the little "Edit", "Feed", "Time", etc. icons that come with K2. I'm now wondering why none of this is done by the original developers...
