While there are a variety of ways to match color across your subject, the selective color adjustment layer is a simple and intuitive way to go about it. This brief video tutorial has the info you need.
If you’re a digital neat freak like I am (You’ll know, because you always name your Photoshop layers. Always!), then you’ve likely performed this task manually countless times. You draw out an object container in Adobe InDesign—such as a text box or image box—place the content in it and resize the content. Next you have to manually resize the object container so it’s only large enough to hold the content within it. Otherwise you end up with a ton of overlapping object frames, making it difficult to select just the right one.
Fortunately, you can make it easy on yourself with this quick shortcut… (more…)
So what’s the difference between CMYK and RGB? CMYK vs. RGB at CreativePro has the quick answer.
For what it’s worth, I haven’t converted a file to CMYK in a long time. Since virtually everything I design ends up leaving my computer as a PDF/X-1a, I have InDesign convert to CMYK in the PDF-making process. You should note that this only works if you have a fully color managed workflow.
The easiest way to lose an audience is to make a mistake in the first minute, and that is exactly where most mistakes are made. Here is a list of 10 things you shouldn’t say during presentations. Some great advice, that almost everyone chooses not to take in almost every presentation I’ve ever seen.
I came across the Spectrum Optical Wired Mouse from Satechi and thought it was so cool that I had to share it. For $25 (regularly $30) you get a wired 1000 dpi optical mouse with scroll wheel.
The chrome appearance looks slick enough, but the cool part starts when you flick the switch on the bottom of the mouse to the On position. The bright LED lights inside the mouse cycle through blue, yellow, violet, turquoise, white, red, and green. To illuminate a single color, switch to the Lock position when the desired color is achieved. The LEDs can be turned off by switching to the Off position.
At $25, it’s worth grabbing one, if for no other reason than just to have around as a spare. I plan on getting one and setting it to blue to match the blue glow emanating from the USB hub on my desk.
Remember ‘Stickers‘, the Apple commercial that showed-off decals on the back of a MacBook?
If you want to decorate your MacBook with a sticker, you can grab one from the commercial (or a number of other custom labels) from DecalGuru. In most cases the stickers cost $10-$13, but there is a section of $5 decals.
