doe Studio.ca....goes LIVE!!

It's here! Finally!!! Actually, I went live with the site just around Christmas, but haven't blogged about it yet. So I really should be saying...It's finally here...my blog about my new website!!
It's been a labour of love with lots of work getting content material written, the online Shopping cart set up and photos organized and uploaded. I used a free website for site building, called Yola.com. It's been SO easy, looks good and did I mention it was FREE!!!? They have lots of free templates to chose from, so you can pick one that's suitable for your needs. See them here!
I used a few tools to get things going. I really had to edit and resize my photos in order to maximize the upload capacity that you get with the free site. It is a bit limited, but I don't think I'll ever reach my max! (never say never though, right?!). I use a program called Webresizer.com. It's fantastic. Not only does it allow me to shrink the size of my photos, the program optimizes them for a sharper, clearer image. There are extra capabilities such as cropping, lighting adjustments and border selection. Well worth looking into if you have the need for this kind of a service.
I was able to add a Shopping tab, which I am extra excited about. Hoping that folks will check it out and use the Shopping cart that is set up through PayPal!! I am still working out some of the kinks but have been having such a great time!
Please come by for a visit! Let me know that you visited. Leave me a comment!
