Texas, which provides extensive information on concrete
and commercial concrete contractors. Their articles include
a history of concrete and tilt-up construction, descriptions
of historic concrete construction projects, including the

Concrete Contractor.com employed a site layout which used
large photographs that span the width of each page's content
area. The original images from which the span photos were
cropped had to be extremely large, so that the cropped portion
would still extend the full width of the page, even when
viewed at higher resolutions.
Construction Photographs pictures worked perfectly for
this application. The 3000 pixel-wide images could be cropped
and resized such that the resulting span pictures extend
the width of the page's content area up to 1280 x 1024 resolution.
Because of the large selection of pictures at Construction
Photographs, Concrete Contractor.com was able to find a
variety of photos for their pages without having to repeat
images. To ensure they followed the user guidelines, Concrete
Contractor.com put the photo credit in an unobtrusive link
directly under and to the right of each span photo.
ConcreteContractor.com is an excellent example of a demanding
