While the background of a website can get lost amongst the numerous menus, sidebars and content sliders, its a fantastic opportunity to brighten up a boring page and show a little personality for your organization or brand. The team at Graphics Fuel released this set of abstract backgrounds suited for your page or graphic designs. The set includes high resolution JPEG files at 3000 x 2250 pixels to accommodate large design projects. The backgrounds are colorful yet muted enough not to take away from the actual content on a page.

Mosaiqy is a jQuery plugin designed by Fabrizio Calderan that displays a number of photos in a grid format. The plugin allows viewers to zoom in on a specific image in the plugin window and rearranges the images on the grid to fit the enlarged photos. To save processing requirements, the plugin relies on CSS transitions to handle the tasks of animating and zooming in on the images. The plugin is compatible for Opera 9+, Firefox 3.6+, Safari 3.2+, Chrome and IE7+ browsers and can integrate with popular photo sharing services such as Flickr, Instagram and others.

The JPEGmini application from ICVT Ltd. allows designers to shrink the size of images without compromising the quality or the functionality of the Jpeg file type and is powerful enough to reduce an image’s size by 5 times. JPEG mini is available as a Free App from the Mac App Store or as an online tool on the JPEG mini website.
