  • Correcting Converging Verticals

    by Qiwoman01 | 12th of June, 2016

    Okay, so it's been a while since my last post and, if you recall, my last DT blog was fairly negative in calling out people who do not pay for using stock images. That I'm afraid is a perennial problem, which isn't likely to go away any time soon. And anyway, I like to think... More
