By: OSH Editorial    In: Photoshop Quicktip Tips and tricks

http://www.opensourcehunter.com/2010/11/18/quicktip-no-more-strokes-in-gradients/

In most times, when you made gradients in Photoshop, there are some strokes that makes your gradient less attractive. A while ago I read somewhere how we can get rid of those strokes.

Cool list of css3 buttons without using any images

By: OSH Editorial    In: Design Inspiration Tutorials css3

http://www.opensourcehunter.com/2010/09/08/cool-list-of-css3-buttons-without-using-any-images/

Most browsers today support CSS3, this means that we can create and use cool looking buttons for our projects without the use of any images. But why use CSS3 buttons instead of an images? Well, you dont have to have any design skills(a lot of us dont know how to use a graphic program like photoshop), you dont have to buy graphic software(like photoshop, which isn’t cheap) and for websites with lots of buttons and high traffic it can reduce your server load(every image that you use is an HTTP request) but most of all it’s the future.

More an more sites are using(or going to use) JavaScript(library or plain) on there website(s). You probably dont see much of these javascript pieces, but one cool piece of JavaScript cant be missed, and it’s called a lightbox.

A JavaScript ligthbox is a fast growing way to present in a nice way an images or something else like inline html, video or an external site without opening a new window. In the old days most images(or other content) where presented in a new tab/window, which isn’t a pretty way to do this if you ask me.

If you are running a company or just working as a freelancer you probably know how important a good business card design can be, but there are still a lot of freelancers and company’s that dont have a (good) business card.

What kind of design is right for me? Well it depends mostly on you profession, for example a graphic designer would use a cool illustration and a photographer would use an simple but elegant design. But still the most important thing on the card is the information on it.
