March 4, 2013 in Resources

It’s been 3 years since we’ve mentioned Deposit Photos in one of our posts. Back then, they were a small, but enthusiastic agency which wanted to go after the big names in the industry. And with 1 million stock images made available for download in their first year, things looked promising.

However, in a scenario that we typically see in Sci-Fi movies, this project grew at an impressive rate, reaching 4 million stock images in 2011 and 9 million 6 months ago. Although huge increases like that might be made at the expense of quality, this didn’t happen with Deposit Photos. In fact, it seems to me that these guys actually increased the quality as they added more and more products to their shelves. Speaking of which, can you guys guess how huge is their database now? Well, 12.75 million photos! And that, I tell you, it’s impressive and according to them, they’ve increased the number of stock images by 140% in 2012 alone.

How to Build an iOS-Style Content Slider using jQuery

by Jake Rocheleau

February 25, 2013 in Tutorials

There are loads of tutorials online which are related to dynamic slideshows and image galleries. Typically web developers have been using jQuery to enhance the media in these content sliders. Many other ideas have come to fruition and this has spurred a generation of brand new plugins for jQuery developers.

In this tutorial I want to focus on one of these plugins called iosSlider. This is an open source project with numerous options for customizing your own media slideshow. This includes typical animations and effects for when the user clicks or hover over slideshow items. Additionally we will include some dynamic text as seen on the website demo. This UI style is perfect for improving the creativity of more generic or bland website layouts.
