developer journalLeno asked me to add a music player to his site. While I am going to developed a flash player for him I found a very light weight music player online. It is a modification of a Wordpress audio player. While this won't be the final player for this site I have thought about using it for my sisters music portfolio.

A quick rundown of some of the technology I used here:
- Lightbox 2.0 : I used this to display images full-screen after the user has clicked on the thumbnail.
- Flash 8 : I used this to create the thumbnail images, the banner art and more. I simply use it because I am the most comfortable with it.
- Photoshop CS: Helped in resizing and optimizing the photos.
- Lytebox 3.2 : I am looking at this as a substitute for Lightbox 2.0 because it can display html as well at pictures. Maybe a contact form pop-up would be a good use of this.

While looking for some where to practice my web skills I was browsing around on MySpace and found my friend Leno's site. He had some of his paintings and drawing there and I thought what a great chance to make a portfolio site for him. I am fleshing out some ideas with him at the moment. See what it looks like so far [here]. It isn't close to being done yet, but you'll get the overall idea by looking at it.
