DesignBum: Living Today's Tomorrows

by sbrothier
Okay, my tiny parakeets, let me set this shit straight. First off, this section is crammed with tasty visual treasures that you can use in your projects, art, or whatever. It's largely the sum collective of my personal design resources not including all the cool shit I've scanned over the years (though, bandwidth providing, I'll get those up as well). There's also some experiments, half realized ideas, stickers, and wallpapers on which to feast your eyes. Additionally, some of these projects contain dingbats that I didn't create. Use these at your own risk. Almost all the dingbats I used were free where but some may not be, so exercise caution. Also, you can download all of the downloads in one file if you want. But hark, and listen to the words I now speak, for I preach a mindful vision, one pregnant with poise and intent.

Paparazzi! is a small utility for Mac OS X that makes screenshots of webpages. It’s written in Objective-C using the Cocoa API and the WebKit framework. It was inspired by webkit2png which is a commandline tool written by Paul Hammond in pyObjC, so all intellectual credit for the basic functionality goes to him. ;) Paparazzi! requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later. The current version is 0.4.3. If you find yourself using Paparazzi! often, please remember to donate!

Phiculator, the Golden Ratio calculator from Thismanslife : Design, Graphics, Photography // James Mellers, Nottingham UK

by sbrothier & 2 others (via)
Phi, the Fibonacci sequence, the golden ratio, the golden section, the golden mean, the divine proportion. It’s known as many things, but the ratio they all refer to is the same, 1 : 1.61803399... Found in art, architecture, design, and most intriguingly, in nature, this ratio has been used throughout history and today for its aesthetic beauty. Phiculator (pronounced "fye·cu·la·tor") is a simple tool which, given any number, will calculate the corresponding number according to the golden ratio. Useful to anyone wishing to create anything with divine proportions!

Deziner Folio » Blog Archive » Ultimate Web 2.0 Layer Styles - Free Download

by sbrothier & 20 others
Coming to the Layer Styles, I found a lot of styles on the Web to download but none of them were of the today’s trend of Web 2.0. So here is a set of 131 Photoshop Layer Styles I created in .ASL ( Photoshop Layer Style ) format. As explained in the below image, I feel this set of Layer Styles could be the fastest way to create Web Elements like Buttons, headers, Content Backgrounds and a lot other stuff…

Improve your photography with clasical art.

Adjusting your photographs to get the color 'just right' can be a chore. Think about this: The Old Masters of painting spent years of their lives learning about color. Why let all their effort go to waste on the walls of some museum when it could be used to give you a hand with color correction?

Gridding the 960 ~ Authentic Boredom

by sbrothier & 1 other (via)
You might recall a certain dialogue on this site about optimal layout width for 1024px. And perhaps your astuteness leads you to recollect the ensuing dialogue about fluid vs. fixed width.

Andy Budd::Blogography: Layout Grid Bookmarklet

by sbrothier & 2 others (via)

IAU Website: iau0601

by sbrothier
16. August 2006, Prague: The world's astronomers, under the auspices of the International Astronomical Union (IAU), have concluded two years of work defining the difference between "planets" and the smaller "solar system bodies" such as comets and asteroids. If the definition is approved by the astronomers gathered 14-25 August 2006 at the IAU General Assembly in Prague, our Solar System will include 12 planets, with more to come: eight classical planets that dominate the system, three planets in a new and growing category of "plutons" - Pluto-like objects - and Ceres. Pluto remains a planet and is the prototype for the new category of "plutons."

Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 40

by sbrothier & 1 other
I've had a surprising number of requests for a collection of watercolor-style brushes for Adobe Photoshop. But with the limitations of Photoshop's paint engine, that's a bit of a trick. Unlike programs like Corel Painter and Synthetik Studio Artist, Photoshop doesn't give you the ability to create anything that truly behaves like wet media with spreading, smearing and diffusing effects. Nevertheless, we can get part way there.
