Great resourses for your product designing
Posted: Thursday, June 16, 2011 4:09:53 AM
I have been wondering how I can "give back" to those who have helped me here in the forums and thought this might be one way I can accomplish that. I'll be sharing some excellent resources and tools for all of you in this thread and will update the thread with new ones from time to time. There's no need to reply or make comment if you don't want to, just make use of these great resources and you'll be designing like a true artist!

UPDATED NOV 1, 2011

New resources

Here are a few additions to the list below
I highlighted all the newest ones in bold
Thanks to Zazzle for posting my list in the
bottom of the most recent newsletter...
I thought it a great time to updated it (today)

Enjoy!

Super Resource List of Free Twitter Apps
Originally shared by TheArtOfPamela
This is a link to the PDF file that shows
a large list of apps, very useful!!
I've shortened the link for you here;
http://bit.ly/1001TwitterApps



Google Resources / products
Great simplified list of the complete
suite of Google products and services.
You just might find one you were not even
aware of:
http://www.usabilityviews.com/simply_google.htm

Here is a real time online HTML editor with
what you see is what you get. I use this once
in a while when i want to test how a link, url
or website code looks: just erase the text you see
and plop in your own HTML code to check and see if
it looks the way you are expecting it to look on
the web:

Here's a cool Signature Creator
It's self explanatory when you get there :-)
http://needasig.com/

Here's a massive list of the top 2000 domains
on the web. Why? Nice place to find high volume
websites you can TRY to find a way to get links
onto. This is a true challenge, but hey life is
a challenge, right? I shortened the URL which was
rather lengthy:
http://bit.ly/rRV0rw

This is a really useful (and fascinating) common landmarks, places and such to see why you can't use their common name / place names
on your products. Another long URL I'm shortening it:

UPDATED JUNE 26 2011 With more resources
Also fixed the kuler color link

I hope you find these helpful, I really do.

Today it's help with designing with colors since not everyone is a natural artist.

My favorite for picking color schemes with over
11,000 color schemes to view!
http://kuler.adobe.com/#themes/rating?time=30


Tiny color picker program you can have
"stay on top" of your PC windows while
you pick out colors from anywhere!
My favorite color picker software:
http://download.cnet.com/Pixie/3000-10247_4-10047496.html


Online color picker (no software to download)
Let's you pick from a nice color palette and
see how colors you pick look together
http://www.worqx.com/color/palette.htm


Interactive color wheel with dizzying array of colors
http://r0k.us/graphics/SIHwheel.html

If you really want to get into learning more about how color works together here's color theory explained simply
http://www.tigercolor.com/color-lab/color-theory/color-theory-intro.htm


Online image resolution chart: this is great
for figuring out converting different image
sizes and what their corresponding megapixels
and resulting print sizes
http://www.unlikelymoose.com/more/cameras/megapixel_converter.html


Cool Striped background generator let's you experiment and create
http://www.stripemania.com/


500 Named Colors with their Hex and RGB values listed. I guess
it's another sort of color picker but with all the colors laid out
in a straight forward list for those who like things simple.

I've never used it, but i believe if you have Adobe Photoshop (probably CS5 only) kuler has a plugin to find palettes within Photoshop, without having to go to the website. Could be very useful.

Thanks Bob. I'm still working in CS2 so I'm one of those who make use of the website.
Posted: Monday, June 27, 2011 10:07:31 PM
I use both, sometimes it's easier to search through the site. And yeah, if I wasn't in art school I'm sure I'd still be rocking out on CS3.
