Web designer meets spreadsheet

Permalink: http://paul.us2uk.eu/?x=entry:entry130617-184242

Having recently completed what - ahem (gets trumpet out) - I would describe as one of my best looking (and possibly best functioning) spreadsheet applications to date, the time came to write a user guide for it. As this particular system is also part of a service which we’re trying to sell to local companies I wanted to try and grab people’s attention by having an eye-catching picture of the application right there on the front cover.

I decided to offer the reader an oblique view of the spreadsheet in order to show off it’s main features and design aspects, but I didn’t have a program to skew the image, which is when I discovered ShiftN which does exactly what I wanted to do, without having to soft through the added baggage of assorted bells and whistles which image manipulation software normally includes.

ShiftN was very easy to install and use, and I can highly recommend it. It’s also FREE!

Ching! Ching!

If you found anything on this site of use, interesting, or even mildly amusing please consider tipping a few pennies in the jar to help look after our son, Georgi, to whom this blog is shamelessly dedicated.

Georgi contracted encephalitis and fell into a coma in the summer of 2007. He’s a strong boy and survived, but he suffered brain damage and still can’t walk or talk (well, not very well - but he does try). He’s growing all the time and every penny we collect goes towards his upkeep, and towards his future care requirements.

Thank you.
