Snapz Pro X 2

Many people have asked how I record those tutorial movies so much that it is probably a good idea to do an article about it. Let’s talk “screen shots” or “screen captures.”

Illustration, from sketch to finish Part Two

28 comments 2006 at 06.52 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Ok! I know a lot of you have been waiting for this very moment. So here it is, part 2, all wrapped up in a (H.264 AKA MPEG-4 Part 10) movie for you to download and watch (14.9 MB). You have to excuse the fact that I often have to drag things back into the movie. I’m using just a small portion of my (big) screen, so the center is way out of the capture area (for example when I zoom in or name the layers).

Be smart and use Smart Guides

24 comments 2006 at 11.16 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Another feature in Photoshop CS2 that’s proven handy is “Smart Guides”. It’s actually a feature they borrowed from Illustrator. It may not be Photoshop’s most sexy feature but it can save you some hassle. If you are a pixel junkie like me you want everything aligned, the bills don’t get payed by being sloppy ;-)

Intel iMac Benchmarks

21 comments 2006 at 02.48 am posted by Veerle Pieters

I don’t know about you but I have been wondering about benchmarks for the new Intel machines. During these keynotes I’m always skeptical about the benchmarks that Steve Jobs shows. My partner Geert has been thinking about upgrading his Dual 1Ghz G4 and going for one of these new Quad models (the top line one). So I’m especially interested in seeing those benchmarks. These benchmarks were run by someone from the MacAddict forums in the Apple Store. Some of the test were done with iLife ‘06.

The Live coverage has been reworked into an article.

Retail Update

Like always the keynote started with a little update on the retail side. Apple now has 135 Shops around the world and those stores had 26 million visitors during holiday quarter. For the first time those stores had their $1 billion quarter this past quarter.

Are you a lurker? If you are it’s De-Lurking time

The regular readers that have been around for a while may remember last year’s De-Lurking day. That’s something that got started by Sheryl from Papernapkin. So what’s a lurker? Well that’s probably you ;-)

In my 2005-2006 post I talked about about two speaking engagements. Well now that cat is out the bag I guess I can talk about it here ;-) My first trip of the year will be to Austin Texas for SXSWi. You can imagine how much of a surprise it was when my mailbox contained an invite from Nick Finck.

Web standards article part II

14 comments 2006 at 03.36 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Now that my article about web standards has been published I’ve given the opportunity to write a follow up for Inside. The editor and I thought that it would be a good idea to probe some thoughts from my readers first to get a bit of a consensus.
