We are discussing how to let users view larger images of an image posted on to an article. We are considering several options, but the fundamental question is about the basic behaviour:

Howdy Folks,

I am wondering if there are any other IxDA list members living in

If so, please let me know and I will set something up soon! Or if a
local group already exists, please get in touch?

Do you recommend Expression Blend?


We're starting an implementation project for a Windows application
that we've already designed (form, content and behavior is done). The
design involves some eye-candy and transitions that would be trivial
to implement with WPF, but not so trivial with Windows Forms.

To help the coders concentrate on coding, were considering to re-draw
our Photoshop+OmniGraffle originals with the shining new MS Expression
Designer+Blend toolset, hoping that the output is directly useful WPF/
XAML/C# input for Visual Studio.

[EVENT] Reminder: IxDA Austin // Tues, May 19 // Thinking Visually

EVENT: Thinking Visually: Just Show Me a Freaking Picture

To “think visually” is to transform complex, text-based knowledge or verbal
language into engaging and memorable visuals so the information can be
better represented, understood and remembered.Visual thinking is relevant
today because the density of information we deal with is the equivalent of
being soaked with a firehose of data - and it’s not showing any signs of

Unfortunately, research indicates that when our brains find themselves in
situations of great complexity, they start to shut down.

Success Metrics (was: Visual aspects of interaction design...)

> After all, aren't we all after better products? Better from both a
usable and visual perspective?

Yes, most of us are after better products from a usability and visual
design perspective. However, don't you think that all designs should be
evaluated based on unique, pre-identified success metrics?

For example, an interactive design submitted to Comm Arts is probably
going to have success metrics skewed toward innovation in the visual
design realm. In that realm, text on gifs *could* be evaluated as good
design if extensibility, download time, etc. are not a priority.

States linking in Fireworks CS4

Hi Fireworksers!

I'm newcomer in the Adobe Fireworks prototyping and have one question.
In this product we have the powerfull pages, layers and states
(formerly frames) model -- I can prepare an interactive prototype in
various formats - html, pdf, Air, Flex and I can put hotspotes on
prototype objects and link this ones with pages.
Here is my questions -- can I link my hotspotes with states instead of
pages? I think the states without linking ability is the set of slides
