Colored Houses of Burano

Colored Houses of Burano

Is it possible to walk around Burano for the first time and not smile at the brightly colored houses? The streets look like bags of jelly beans. Murano also has brightly colored houses, but it doesn’t come close to Burano. We spent a few hours in Burano to check out the lace museum and walk around, but it wasn’t easy getting from point A to point B when I had to stop and photograph houses every few minutes. All I can say is that it’s a good thing I didn’t discovery photography in the days of film camera; I would have bankrupted my family.

Better Colour Palette for Flash

Posted by Avital Pinnick on September 25, 2011

New Palette (Flash)

Coming out of hibernation to say that I just found this great colour palette here. If you work in Flash, you probably don’t find the default colour palette all that user friendly. I was watching a video by Dermot O’ Connor (Animation Tips and Tricks with Flash Professional) on Lynda.com. Lynda.com is a fabulous site if you ever need to pick up new software skills in a hurry. Basic subscription is $25/month and it has lots of fun stuff, including tons of courses on aspects of photography, Photoshop, various programming languages, marketing your business on Facebook and with Twitter.

Since I don’t have the premium subscription I couldn’t download the palette in O’Conner’s exercise files, but I managed to find it via a Google search. Just download the zip file, extract the *.clr file. In Flash, open the Swatches panel and click Replace Colors on the dropdown menu. Click Save as Default. If you ever want to go back to the old palette, click Web 216.
