Help message
Keep an eye out for us. We're here to help you!

You've found the help page. Here's where we hope to make anything not immediately obvious a little more understandable. In addition to what's on this page, you can also find specific hints scattered around the site from our helpful pea people as you can see to the right.

This help page is divided into the following sections:





Getting Around

You can use the tabs at the top of the page to navigate to each section described below. The tabs will also show a little summary of newly added items.

To help you keep track of updates, new content in each section will normally be highlighted by an exclamation mark New! (this replaces the Updates page in case you're wondering where that's gone).

Image Types

There are several different image types you can show and hide when browsing artwork. Here is a brief description of each in case you're unsure. Note that each of the image type name links below takes you to the on the Artwork page with only that image type visible.

Found Something You Like?

We only ask that if you download any of the images from the site, you let anyone you show it to know where it came from.

Understanding RSS

RSS is a technology that allows you to keep track of updates to a website without having to manually visit it all the time and without the site emailing you when changes happen.

This technology is sometimes called "live bookmarks", and most web browsers display RSS feeds alongside regular bookmarks. The difference is that a "live bookmark" will behave like a dropdown menu that contains all of the recently updated stuff that you can click on to go straight there. Neat?

"But wait," we hear you say. "That doesn't help me know when you've updated your site. Now instead of clicking on a bookmark to go to twolofbees.com, I have to click something that looks like a bookmark and select the new stuff from a menu."

You can do more with RSS feeds than add them to your list of bookmarks, and there are a lot of other things that can read and understand RSS beyond your web browser. A lot of email programs can subscribe to RSS feeds, as can some desktop widgets, and even some websites (which can probably start to make things confusing).

Our personal choice for making RSS feeds more visible to us, is to use RSS Ticker to allow RSS feeds to scroll across the top of our browser windows as soon as there are new updates. Note that this is only compatible with the Mozilla Firefox web browser.

Alternatively, if you use Mozilla Thunderbird for your email, you can add an RSS feed so that it will show up like a mail account, with each new update showing as a separate message.

If you get stuck, you can email us and we can try to talk you through.
