zOnnyhey replaceafill 12:09
replaceafillhey zOnny12:10
zOnnywhat you think about aspect ratio?12:11
zOnnyreplaceafill: 12:11
replaceafillzOnny, hm_12:11
replaceafillzOnny, don't understand your question12:11
zOnnyreplaceafill: jelkner requested that client images should be standard12:13
replaceafillzOnny, standard?12:13
zOnnyreplaceafill: yes12:13
replaceafillzOnny, what does standard mean in that context?12:14
zOnnyreplaceafill: I mean not fixed by css12:14
replaceafillzOnny, i'm not really following this... what's "fixed by css"12:14
zOnnyreplaceafill: can you check the _prod and _dev clients section 12:15
replaceafillzOnny, sure12:15
replaceafillzOnny, ok, what should i be paying attention to?12:16
replaceafillzOnny, i see pictures of people12:17
replaceafillzOnny, which i'm not sure i agree with, but you're the designer...12:17
replaceafillzOnny, Daniela's picture is a vertical oval12:17
replaceafillzOnny, while Elizabeth is distorted inside a circle12:17
replaceafillzOnny, Lee doesn't look distorted because his image file is square-ish12:18
zOnnyreplaceafill: correct12:18
zOnnyreplaceafill: but the _dev is standard 12:19
zOnnyreplaceafill: which leave a background 12:19
replaceafillzOnny, :S12:19
replaceafillzOnny, in dev Elizabeth looks like inside an eye :D12:20
replaceafillzOnny, or a letter O12:20
zOnnyreplaceafill: correct12:20
replaceafillzOnny, and Daniela is distorted12:20
*** mjsir911 has joined #novawebdev12:21
zOnnyjelkner requested me to get the pictures standard and get a background 12:21
replaceafillzOnny, ok...12:21
replaceafillzOnny, and what do you need from me?12:21
zOnnyI need your eyes replaceafill :D12:22
replaceafillzOnny, do you mean you want my artistic opinion?12:22
replaceafillzOnny, on the design?12:22
zOnnyreplaceafill: well maybe some feedbacks 12:22
replaceafillzOnny, i think you're asking the wrong person :)12:22
zOnnyreplaceafill: if you don't mind 12:22
replaceafillzOnny, we have *****three***** designers12:22
replaceafillzOnny, in our organization12:23
replaceafillzOnny, neither of them is me12:23
replaceafillzOnny, i can give you feedback like:12:23
replaceafillzOnny, i don't think we should be using people faces there12:23
replaceafillzOnny, we should be using logos12:23
replaceafillzOnny, that's the kind of feedback i can think of12:23
replaceafillzOnny, gitlab will show you all the projects, right_12:24
replaceafillzOnny, and their images are just being centered12:24
replaceafillzOnny, not adjusted12:24
zOnnyreplaceafill: well I just made what I was requested 12:24
replaceafillzOnny, i have a Martin Fowler's talk for you....12:25
replaceafillzOnny, hold on12:25
replaceafillzOnny, when you have a chance ;)12:25
replaceafillzOnny, has jelkner given you any feedback on this?12:27
zOnnyreplaceafill: jelkner doesn't like distorted images 12:28
replaceafillzOnny, neither do i12:28
replaceafillzOnny, do you like them!?!?!?12:28
zOnnyreplaceafill: me neither 12:29
replaceafillzOnny, so, what are we discussing then?12:29
replaceafillzOnny, neither of us like distorted images, so we shouldn't be using them12:30
zOnnybut in this case the empty spaces around doesn't play a good role 12:30
replaceafillzOnny, as i see it these are SOME of your alternatives12:32
replaceafillzOnny, again, this is not my area of expertise...12:32
replaceafillzOnny, you can just edit the images to match the ratio12:32
replaceafillzOnny, you really want squares12:32
replaceafillzOnny, so make them pngs with transparent areas12:33
replaceafillzOnny, if you're not able to do that, get someone who can do it for you12:33
replaceafillzOnny, an alternative as i recommended12:33
replaceafillzOnny, is to not use faces12:33
replaceafillzOnny, but logos and follow the same approach gitlab follows with their circular project icon12:34
replaceafillzOnny, they don't give a s*** how centered the logo looks12:34
replaceafillzOnny, they just position it correctly12:34
replaceafillzOnny, another alternative, don't use any image12:35
replaceafillzOnny, that's way simpler12:35
replaceafillzOnny, you're interested about the quote12:35
replaceafillzOnny, not the face of the person who said it12:35
replaceafillzOnny, maybe you want to also highlight the charge of the person who said it12:36
replaceafillzOnny, look at all those movie trailers12:36
zOnnyreplaceafill: thanks12:36
replaceafillzOnny, "this is the best movie ever" time magazine12:36
replaceafillzOnny, "this is a great book" someone someone12:36
replaceafillzOnny, but hey, what do i know about design ;)12:37
replaceafillzOnny, you're in this business to solve problems12:37
replaceafillzOnny, if your client thinks this is an IMPORTANT problem12:37
replaceafillzOnny, you need to deal with it12:37
replaceafillzOnny, in a way that satisfies YOUR CLIENT12:38
replaceafillzOnny, i bet nrcerna can come up with a better solution12:38
replaceafillzOnny, even mr_german12:38
replaceafillzOnny, but i don't think i can, sorry about that12:38
