Anyone familiar with the powerhouse team behind Pinkeye Graphics knows that far from having a 'just stepped out of the salon' look, we appear to have never even stepped IN across the threshold. As of a couple of weeks ago (for one of us at least) that was probably true - until we were invited by Level Hair and Beauty in our home town of Ryde to produce some publications.
Don't know about you, but Cat likes to use the pen tool when cutting something from its background in Photoshop. There are plenty of awesome techniques for cutting out wayward hair, described elsewhere on the internet. Watch and learn.
This tutorial lets you know how you can remedy a simple error. You know how it is - you're concentrating so hard on outlining a shape in Photoshop that it's not until you've finished fiddling about that you spot that you had the selection set to 'subtract' instead of 'add'. Yes, you can select the path (Ctrl+click, when mouse is in the layer thumbnail), invert selection then make a new path.
However, there is an easier way. Use the Path Selection Tool (A) and click on a piece of the path. The path becomes live and, using the selection tool, click on Add to Shape Area (+) in the area selection tool bar. Et voila! *takes a bow*
Anyone who has produced a book in InDesign will know what a boon the automatic production of a table of contents can be. Just one click and it's done (kinda!).
The first thing to consider BEFORE working on a document that will need a table of contents is to use papragraph styles for your chapter headers (or whatever item you want to have listed). In the example we have created a table of contents for a furniture exhibition catalogue - the Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design.
We were eating an ice-cream in Cowes today and noticed this poster we designed for The Plaza Ices. Looking good!
We've just been updating all our b2evolution blogs from version 2 to version 4.
It's been a while since we did such an update, because b2evolution is a pretty robust platform anyway and why make work for yourself? But as we have a whizzy new server and had to move it all over anyway, it seemed like the right time to make the upgrade. Luckily for us the upgrade is very easy and it almost manages itself, and the skins which we have modified quite heavily over the years seem to make the translation to the new version almost without adjustment.
So, what to do? Read on to find out.
