How To Disable Snap Shots on Blogs M ikel recently made a plea to people who use “Snap Shots” on their blogs to please reconsider. Snap Shots (sometimes referred to simply as “Snap”) is that highly annoying feature that pops up an ad-filled preview of the target whenever you roll your cursor over a link on a Web page (usually a blog). Here’s an example: Just by rolling over the link, the huge Snap Shots window pops up, obscuring the text that you’re trying to read. This is annoying because 95% of the time it happens unintentionally. People roll their cursors around the screen as a matter of course, and when a blog has Snap Shots enabled, these unexpected and unwanted previews pop up.

If we had a few more colors to choose from, there would be more consistency and perhaps more visual contrast in our graphic visualizations. I decided to take on the palette-extending challenge. I quickly discovered that while there’s some science to it (found in basic color theory), there’s also an art to manipulating the rules to discover just the right color combination. Quick note: I use a tool called ColorSchemer Studio for simple color wheels and color mixing but you can use any color wheel or mixing tool for this exercise.
