You are welcome to take any of the art on this page (except the banner, working buttons, and the endpiece) and use it on your own pages. Please don't link to the art--if I find that anyone has linked to an image, I will remove it from this page. To take an image, simply right-click it with your mouse, and then save-as to your own hard drive. Upload it to your own site and use as you wish. I will be adding more web art as the whim strikes me. Suggestions welcome. If you take some of the art, I'd appreciate a link back to this site. Use the image below. (Someday, I will put a links page up!) This page is always under construction, so if you should see a few X boxes with no image, don't be concerned that something isn't loading. On this page, the images are all .gifs with transparent backgrounds to make them easier for you to float on top of a patterned or colored page background. Giffing plays havoc with elegant outline shading and sometimes leaves strange, unremovable stray pixels on the images, but these are usually lost in the color or pattern behind.
Have a vision for your website? Have a photo you want to use for magazine advertising, but it's too light, too dark, or too fuzzy? I do a limited amount of Sheltie web art and photo processing on order. This includes working with custom titling, text (see the history page for one example of custom text), and buttons, as well as logos, dingbats, and divider bars. Also, I can make web art from your own images. I also correct photo scans for the web so they will load quickly and display properly. So many photos I see on the web take longer than they should to load. (This page has many images, and see how quickly it -- usually -- loads? Recently I went to a Sheltie web page and analyzed the images, wondering why they took forever to come in. The images looked small on the screen, but in bytes, were extremely large. Each small image was nine megabytes, but should have been 140k!) Do you have a photo or a scan that just does NOT look good? Many Web Page creators do wonders writing the page code, but are not expert in working with images and custom text. Many photos need compression done by a graphic artist rather than someone who just "scrunches" them down to fit. I can make your images work for you on the web. A beautiful photo is little good on the web if it isn't scanned properly. I do custom photo scans that will load quickly and look clean and sharp.
I also repair damaged images and can improve images that are fuzzy, too light or too dark, and those that have odd color casts, as well as editing out leashes and other distractions. I can output these as "real" hard-copy photos as well.

If you have something you'd like me to create or work with, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and rates. I don't do web SITES for people at present (my cup of tea is the art), but I can create breed-correct Sheltie art for you to use on your site, and work with your own photos to make them shine on your site or in your magazine ad.
Creating Shelties with pixellated light has its challenges. Just like my flesh-and-fur Shelties, not one is perfect!
