28 Apr 202403:15

TLDRIn this upcoming tutorial series, the focus is on rebuilding the Midjourney Feed website, which features an appealing design with several interesting aspects to explore. The first element is the sidebar, which will be created without the use of a vertical section as seen in Editor X. The second element is the Mosaic layout, which is not only visually appealing but also responsive, adjusting the number of columns for images and the sidebar layout depending on the screen size. The third element is the image interaction, where clicking on an image opens a lightbox with additional information about the artwork. Although not covering the slider, options will be provided to view different information about each image. The images will be dynamically linked to a database and will load more as the user scrolls down for better performance. Dark mode, which has been covered in previous tutorials, will also be included. The creator seeks feedback and suggestions for additional topics to cover in the series.
