Best of – Adobe Photoshop Tutorials

An amazing resource for anyone who uses Adobe Photoshop.

Photoshop

When it comes to graphic design, Adobe Photoshop is usually the first option to consider. However, the software itself is a quite tough nut to crack — and definitely extremely hard to master. For instance, the concepts are not always intuitive and it’s not always clear when to use what tool and how to use it effectively. In fact, in Photoshop it usually takes pretty much time to achieve something you have never done before.

However, you don’t need to muddle through numerous Photoshop features and extensions for every design problem. You can use professional suggestions instead, e.g. professional step-by-step tutorials which provide excellent results and thus can save you a lot of time.

Using Flock 1.0 – So far, so good!

I’ve been trying Flock out for the last couple of weeks and I want to give in my 2 cents on it, maybe it will shed some light on it for you.

So far, it’s been pretty stable for me, I like the fact that I have an overview of all my social services on the sidebar including Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and Facebook. It does support additional services like Ma.gnolia, del.icio.us, Piczo, and Photobucket. Plus it supports several blogging platforms with a built in blog editor. Let’s not forget a Photo Uploader and Feed reader too!

There’s some interesting features that I’m not used to yet, but I do think it’s neat, like clicking on the “Media Bar” opens a strip across the top showing Flickr photos or any of your choice of media streams available online.

Overall, I’m finding something new to play with everyday and it’s somewhat refreshing dealing with a different browser. I’ve downloaded Flock in the past, but it was just too buggy to continue using, although this time around, it’s more stable.

It’s a free download, feel free to try it yourself.

List of IM Programs

I remember a time that IM (Instant messaging) programs were scarce. That’s right, it was hard to find a decent program for communication. The top dogs were ICQ, AIM, and MSN Messenger and they all sucked back then compared to the features available today.

Communication

I use Skype and Google Talk on a daily basis. For me, this covers every base I need, but then there’s times that people need to communicate with me and they only use a particular medium. In those cases I only use Aim or MSN Messenger.

Anyway, here’s a huge list of Instant Messenging programs that list all kinds, from desktop to web-based to network im programs.
