Can you recommend any resources for finding free images?

April 25th, 2016||

There are a lot of options out there for finding free images, and below are just a few websites that offer royalty free images for public use. Always be sure to check the individual images for attribution requirements. http://www.gratisography.com/ https://pixabay.com/ http://www.morguefile.com/ http://www.freeimages.com/ You can also use Google Image Search, but if you choose to go this route, make sure that under Search Tools you change the option for 'Usage Rights' to 'Labeled for reuse with modification' so you're getting images [...]

I want to update the visual content on my website, do you provide image licenses or can you source the images for me?

April 25th, 2016||

When searching for an image to use on your website it is important to only use images that you have the rights to use. Using copyrighted images without a license can result in a slew of negative consequences, up to and including legal action from the original copyright holder. Therefore, it is very important to make sure you have the rights to use any images you choose for your site. That being said, there are a lot of options [...]

What is green screening?

November 6th, 2014||

Originally developed for film making, green screening is a cost-effective, special-effects technique for layering two images together without them having to be in the same place at the same time, much like those used by weather forecasters. Fox Web Creations can customize a green screen product, for example, a video that will woo, inform, and wow visitors to your site.

How does the web development process work?

November 6th, 2014||

The process of Web development unfolds in ordered phases. It begins with gathering a lot of specific information about our client's goals and mission. Next we define the scope of the project to detail the main activities and their tasks, and set a projected start and end date for each one. The next steps are to map the site architecture, showing all the key pages and how they will be organized. A visual style is then created that showcases the [...]

How long does it take for a design to be completed?

November 4th, 2014|, |

A lot of this will depend on the client - particularly during the mockup portion of the project. We can turn around design edits in a day or two, but they need to be commented upon and approved before we can continue. Programming edits can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days depending on what needs to be done. For example, if an eCommerce system needs to be added, it can take some time.

Is a revision one change or a whole list of changes? What is the turnaround time on revisions? After I use up my included revision hours, how will I edit my site?

November 4th, 2014|, |

Generally revisions are done in groups, or as a list, and the further through the project we get, the shorter and shorter the lists get. The amount of time the revisions will take depends on what they are, but unless it is an unusually long or complicated list it should not take more than a week. Usually it takes a few days. Once the revision hours included in your project have been used up, any additional revisions would be [...]

Why do I need hosting?

October 29th, 2014|, |

Once a company website has been created, it needs to be showcased online for everyone to see. A Web hosting service manages the space available to make Web pages available to many users. Think of it as the clerk in the tool crib of a manufacturing facility, where tools can be checked out for use and returned when no longer needed. The clerk stores, oversees the maintenance of and keeps track of all the tools, in this case, Web pages. [...]
