I've finally rid my systems of Flash so I won't be reading this. Pity.

Re: OlyVision

Despite using flash (Why??), this is a marvelous mag - great pics.

Re: OlyVision

Hello!

So far, Joomag is the best platform for a magazine, because it has every tool needed to manage it. I have been assured by Joomag's customer service that they will switch to HTML5. I haven't been told when, but I assume I am not the only one who asked about this.

Another option to read the magazine is to look for it on the ISSUU platform as I am not allowed to place links in my post.

Being an independent project, I will need some time to get funds for a dedicated website as it deserves.

Meanwhile, I thank you for reading it and I welcome any feedback concerning the magazine at olyvisionmag[at]gmail[dot]com.

Last, but not least you can join the Readers' Group on Facebook.

All the best from Iasi, Romania!

Re: OlyVision

I had a quick flick through it last night on my laptop but it can't be viewed on my iPad though (in bed).

Re: OlyVision

Great to see the new magazine and there are some superb shots. Very inspiring. I have but one niggle ... I hate the black pages! Any chance a more conventional white "paper"?

Re: OlyVision

That's great. Now I can view it on my iPad (in bed). Lots of great photography in it.

Re: OlyVision

I took a look using the ISSUU link. I quite enjoyed the magazine. The African story was very interesting.

Re: OlyVision

Hi!

I apreciate your feedback and it is great to hear you enjoyed the magazine's content.

@Clockwork Donkey It is a good point. Nevertheless, OlyVision is not just a magazine and I want it to stand out from the crowd. I think the quality of the photography will make the black pages more bearable and I will craft a white design only at a certain moment.

As you already noticed the magazine does not have the contributor's name on the cover as I want the content to be a surprize and the design as clean as it can be. From my experience, distraction can be the downfall of a great content.

There will also be no ads like we can find in a regular publication. There will be some at some point, but not in a way to be considered an advertising magazine instead of a photography one.

All the best,

Ionut

Re: OlyVision

Agree about the white text on black - it just makes it harder to read on a screen. Unless I zoom in, the white characters get squeezed (look like they're poorly printed).
