Getting the most out of your CSS Journals Part 9
Welcome back! It's been a while since the last article, and while I did promise that 1 month would be more than enough time to prepare for these articles, it wasn't, and here I am, several days late, gathering up some resources. We have some nice little tricks for you this month, so let's begin!
If used right, these can add a bit of uniqueness to your journals. If not used right, can cause the old "Myspace template" look which shouldn't be shown in a journal.
Most newer browsers that correctly impliment CSS, let you change your cursor for certain elements, for example, links or DIVs. You can do anything from crosshair cursors, to custom cursors loaded from a file. In this example, we'll change the links from a hand, to a crosshair:

a:link {

And of course you can use many more, such as:
or even load your own cursor. Just upload a

Tips for Photographers
I've been interested in Photography for a while now, but only started taking it seriously in the last 6 months. So I've put together a little something for those wanting to know more about photography and its practice.
:star: Don't set your expectations too high, even if you are a professional. You cannot expect to get fantastic results if you are new to photography.
:star: Invest in a good camera. If you can purchase a camera that can be changed to Manual Mode. This gives you freedom over the Shutter Speed, Depth of Field and ISO. Automatic Settings are handy for snap shots but if you want to take a professional approach take time to learn how the Manual settings function. You will get better results from your photos and be able to achieve the correct lighting and focus that you hope for.
:star: Learn how to use editing software. This can be a photographer's best friend. You won't realise how useful it is until you also learn all the functions of the editing software (such as Adobe Ph

How Did They Do That?! Photo Episode 4
How Did They Do That?! Episode 4
It takes a lot to create a great photo, and sometimes the process seems like a mystery to the casual observer. In each episode of How Did They Do That?!, I interview a photographer about the creative process behind one of his or her recent popular photos. This time, I talk to suzi9mm about what went into creating Sprained Minds.

:1: Can you tell me some of the technical details about this photo?
It was taken with a Canon 10D and Sigma's suberb 105mm EX macro lens. I seemed to have forgotten the ISO speed at 200, which was completely unnecessary as I used a studio flash with a softbox and that offered plenty of light. Thanks to the flash, I could easily use aperture 11.
:2:  What are you trying to say with this photo?
I never felt like it would contain a message of any kind. It's more like a vis
