    Unorthodox use of Firebug

    So I'm playing around with Firebug on Mozilla (it let's you 'try out' CSS on a webpage). Reading white text on a black background is murder to read on my Mac ... so I thought why not change the background color to something less migraine inducing? After I found the code for the background color I replaced the black with a medium gray ... and voila! It worked a treat. I'm thinking this would also work on those sites where there isn't enough contrast between the background and text colors for legibility.

    I'm following Chris Coyier's Wordpress course and totally crushing on him. :-) He's a great teacher and has such a nice voice and wonderful manner.

      Background Colors

      I do a lot of studio desktop stuff against a black background...simply because they have a very dramatic appearance when displayed on the net. I have not printed any of them and I have this concern that they might resemble the old, IMHO, tacky look associated with velvet prints from years past....

      replace background

      I want to replace a product studio shot's seemless background color from white to black. The products are on the seemless, so they cast VERY soft shadows (superlight grey).
      I want to keep these shadows and make the backgound a belivable BLACK seemless.

      I have tried endless layer...

      Color coordination
      by wmchauncey
      Been trying to get my mind in tune with color relationship between subject and background, I offer this example...
      Might I be better off using a different color for the background?
      With regard to floral photography, is complimentary better than contrasting?
