Hi Michael, :-)

Thanks for these good ideas. Sure we can implement your suggestions.

If you want to help out with screenshots, that's fine, too. I've done
all screenshots under Ubuntu using the Ambiance theme, window only,
with window sized to 1000x750.

You can supply me with that shot and I'll do the rest (I produce a
downsize at 800x600 in png using Gimp, and then another png at 400x300
using Photoshop. Empirically, that seems to produce the best quality.

IMHO, it would be best to keep all the screenshots to this "uniform format".

Apart from that, we can format the layout the way you want it
(preferably without breaking out of the theme styles).

It would be great if we can work on this together, so that we get the
result you want.

Hi there,

       I was browsing the new features page: which is something we want to be
directing lots of interested journalists and others to over the next
days and weeks; and I was wondering if it could be improved.



       I must confess I prefer the latter :-(

       eg. I love the work the l10n team does; it is a vital part of what we
do - but it is also something that people take for granted as in "it
should just work in my language" - ie. they get upset only if it is not
there ;-)

       Would it be possible to move that to the bottom ?

       Then, there are some quite sexy new things we have that (IMHO) would
benefit from a screenshot; eg.

       * Caolan's new title-page dialog in writer (Format->Title Page)
       * And some of our import filters:
               + SVG, Works, Wordperfect, Lotus Word Pro
               + better EMF rendering
               + perhaps pictures of bundled extensions (?)

       Of course, I'd love to have the relevant files linked as well, so
people can try that out quickly ( cf. the obsolete ); IMHO that adds a lot.

       David / Christophe - any objections to this sort of change ? - we can
make screenshots small enough that there are few-to-no associated l10n
issues, and even (in my view) plain, flat rectangles, without beautiful
green drop-shadows (or whatever) would be rather good here (?)

       I'm happy to work on collecting the shots / files together.
