This might not be your normal Friday-fun website that I normally try to make my weekly tip however it is a very useful site to any web designer. Even though validating your site gives no guarantees what so ever that your code works throughout all major browsers, it gives you a hint about the fact that you have built your code around the specifications that are set in place.
Maybe take a little while to check your site in the W3C Validator and see how it ranks (I know I should do it myself) and what it suggests that you fix. Most often, the suggestions are good ones that you definitely want to implement.
It is hard to find good resources, especially for free stuff. Today I want to point you in the direction towards Brusheezy, a site that is a collection of tons of free brushes, patterns and textures for Photoshop. Indeed, I said they were all free.
As always with free downloads you need to take a look at the license and make sure you can use it in a commercial project, or in the project that you want to use it in, with or without the artist’s permission. However with that done, you can enjoy a huge collection of quality brushes, patterns and textures!
This week I am sharing the portfolio of yet another talented photographer, Michael Green. I met Michael at Photoshop World in Orlando 2010 and he is a seriously skilled photographer and artist as well as an all-around good guy. Have a look through his portfolio to be awestruck by all the amazing work in there!
I assure you that this is a well worth time to spend this weekend, looking at some great art.
I was turned onto this site while browsing my good friend, Jason Anderson’s website. Today I want to send you over and have a look at Michael Palmer Photography, the portfolio of a food photographer. I know how hard it is to do these food shoots as they require a lot of preparation for only a few seconds worth of shooting which is why I appreciate the style a lot.
So go and check out these lovely food photos and I hope you’ll appreciate them as much as I do, if not you will be left drooling over some food that looks delicious.
This week I want you to check out the blog of Rufus Deuchler, a fellow european friend and a fabulous trainer and speaker who knows just a ton of cool stuff about design and Adobe-stuff.
On his blog you will find many useful tips and cool techniques on the different Adobe applications and if you haven’t been visiting the site before, the archives are well worth it to browse through.
