Corbis Lightbox Print
Corbis redesign: Lightbox printing

Drawing on my experience with Bastyr, I was able to re-build the failed cross browser printable contact-sheet. Users on the Corbis site are able to store images in a ‘lightbox’. My mission was to either fix the current development version or create new code to print the contact-sheet properly in all browsers in a very short time. Using Object Oriented JavaScript I built a class that writes a table-based document from the content loaded in the page. Tables, in this case, were the correct choice as page breaks on printed documents are only respected in all browsers if the layout is a table.

My major successes on this project were speed in developing the solution under an extremely tight deadline and vision in seeing the right solution in spite of popular opinion tables are not useful in web development.
