New resources for CSS and web design

I made websites for my CSS and Photoshop Class (short courses)in which my course outline and articles plus the exercise files are all online.

Another consideration was these had to be in flash to make the images a little harder to grab.

It turns out that all this can be done via Lightroom, and the web gallery album used was - LRG FSS Select - Version 1.1 Here are the features;
