The photoset option is up there as one of my favorite features on Tumblr, but the default photoset grid that Tumblr generates does not resize and play well with all of our Style Hatch theme’s responsive layouts. As a result we created our own resizable photoset grid jQuery plugin that we rolled out last year.
I recently took the time to clean up the plugin, write documentation, and put together a demo showing how it works. The jQuery photoset grid plugin can be integrated into Tumblr themes, but it’s designed to work outside of Tumblr as well.

Until we can get Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, and Pinterest to sign a peace treaty and standardize on a common size for share buttons, their mismatched and unaligned buttons will continue to be a thorn in every designer’s side.
For now our best bet is to simply roll your own button with a share count for each service. Today I did a bit of digging and put together a quick Gist to get share counts using the platform’s APIs.
Check out Sharrre if you want a jQuery plugin that covers all the share buttons and much more.
In an effort to shift from commercial to artistic work, photographer Ujin Lee captured a series of images of dust frozen in time as a visual symbol of life. I would love to know how he technically captured these images.

On an unrelated note, check out this post on my site to see a working demo of my new jQuery Tumblr Photoset plugin. This plugin lets you to maintain Tumblr’s awesome new photoset layout options at virtually any size—from 100px to 1000px wide. You can also see this plugin in action on the Inspire Well theme, and by the end of the week it will be in use on all the other Style Hatch themes. I’ll post more details on the plugin when I release it later this week.
A useful jQuery plugin developed by Dave Rupert and Trent Walton for the forthcoming Operation Condor, that splits an HTML element into its component letters, words or lines for easier CSS styling. From the announcement:
We developed a really simple, lightweight, easy to use jQuery plugin, we’re calling it “Lettering Dot JS”, and we’re releasing it today for free over on Github. Let me demo it for you:

Masonry is a powerful new layout plugin for jQuery that arranges elements vertically and then horizontally according to the grid. This flowing layout tool is what powers Tumblr themes Scaffold and Astronaut.
