A couple of months ago, a client asked me to put an image on his website that he scanned from an 8″ x 10″ photo. After I added it to the site:
Client: The picture isn’t the size I sent you!
Me: The width of a web page and the images on it will change depending on the size of the device it’s viewed on.
He didn’t understand, so I told him:
Me: Pretend the website is a window and a three-inch-wide cell phone is the open hole waiting for the window.
Client: “Then you make the hole bigger!”
Me: “You can’t change the size of a cell phone.”
Client: “You’re the web designer; just make it work!”
Well, I couldn’t make it work, so he hired someone else who couldn’t make it work, either, because his new website was up for a week and now it’s gone. I think he’s searching for a magician, not a web designer!
