My first Duoh! website

35 comments 2008 at 07.34 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

I already talked about it a few years ago but since so much has changed here on the blog and many new readers don’t dig that deep in the archive I’m reviving this post inspired by Jason Santa Maria’s lastest post about his first website.

Poll: How do you lefties use a Wacom tablet?

37 comments 2008 at 04.20 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

I’m currently testing a Wacom Cintiq 12WX. I’ve never used a Wacom or any other tablet before, and I’ve always wondered how this would work for me as a left-handed person who is used to work with a mouse right-handed for more than 15 years now. I’ll write down my thoughts in more detail later, but first I want to pick your brain if you use a tablet as a lefty too:)

Adobe Community Help

8 comments 2008 at 06.28 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

Adobe is now shipping the CS4 suite so that means all new applications and new things to learn. Judging from the amount of questions that I receive about Illustrator or Photoshop there are a lot of people who didn’t discover the Community Help yet. It’s something new that was launched together with CS4. In the past it was hard to find relevant help, but this is a step in the right direction.

Gradient flower icon in Illustrator

19 comments 2008 at 06.07 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

A reader asked me if I could write a tutorial about how I created the logo icon. It is the perfect icon for learning certain basic Illustrator techniques. We’re going to use the Pen, Reflect, Scissors and Gradient tool, and of course we’ll also use the beloved and super timesaving Transform again technique.

In case you’ve missed it, we finally launched our business site and talked about the creation process last week. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and educational.
