on and off today with an interesting problem. I found a perfect thing yesterday at the street sale on St Laurent Boulevard. It’s rare that one finds a “perfect thing”. In my experience anyhow. A perfect thing, as opposed to just a regular old garden-variety thing, has to be pre-owned, I think, and it has to actually serve very little purpose. A bauble, a plaything, a gewgaw. Utility is the antithesis of perfect things. I mean a fancy computer is great and all, or a nice keychain or whatever – but they’re too mixed up with trying to do something to be perfect.
In any case, I found a perfect thing, and I want to put it on the web to share. I think it would be fun to share this perfect thing, after all, as its perfection will only be enhanced by the sharing.
So here’s the problem. One part of this involves putting a scanned page of text on the web. But, as befits a perfect thing, I believe it should be perfectly executed. And I can’t get the page(s) of text into .gif or .jpg format and keep them small and readable! Any and all advice would be appreciated by real graphics gurus who know about this sort of thing. Please email me with a solution! I will greatly appreciate it, and the world will have one more perfect thing to share!
