It is odd how things evolve and develop, often caused by minor problems. The original lay out of Ensign pages involved creating pages without the need to scroll but you would flip from one page to another. That was until it was discovered that my father only looked at the first page and missed all the rest so from then on full scrolling pages were established.
Then it was discovered that older computers or ones with low memory and using the memory hog, Netscape, were crashing or at least in deep trouble when ever a gif animation was displayed. This happened to my wife's systems in her school so that spelled the end of illustrating many of Mario
deSantis' articles with animations.
So from about March on of this year we have been including with many articles
a standard eight by four inch image to go along with each article or story. As time
has moved on these things have become increasingly complex while some take only a
few minutes to create some can require up to two hours to get the elements and tone
in the picture that best tells the story.
