    resize images without loosing quality

    If the image is high quality to begin with, you can resize up without losing too much quality, using Perfect Resize or a similar plugin.

    Mobile Friendly Websites

    They're not bad. The first example has the massive text I referred to. The second is a pretty classic vertical stacking mobile layout. I personally don't see the need for responsive sites at all. They very rarely improve on the full desktop version, and in most cases are far inferior.

    Wordpress template development

    For selling on template websites. Obviously it needs discussion on royalties, theme support etc. It's an idea I've been kicking around for a while and I thought I'd try and do something about it.

    Wordpress template development

    Hi, I'm looking for a developer to partner up with to produce decent responsive Wordpress templates. There are so few out there that are actually good, well designed, and reliable.
