I’ve been really busy over the last couple of months working on the new Jay-Be website and I am so pleased that we will be launching it this week (and so will my other clients). I’ve really enjoyed creating this one but its always nice to get a site finished and online.
There are loads of great applications available for Mac OS X that I just love and that make my day to day computing experience so pleasurable. Coda, TextExpander, Things, Billings and of course 1Password. It’s this endless library of quality software that makes choosing to use a Mac over a Windows based PC a very easy one.
Recently I had to build a client login for one of my clients Jay-Be. They only required something straight forward so I didn’t want to complicate matters by using a database, security also wasn’t a primary concern as the client login only provides access to marketing assets so nothing super secret. Although the requirements were fairly modest I wanted something that looked smart and I didn’t want to send users off to a separate login page so I knew I would need some kind of jQuery Modal Window.
I have been using Photoshop since version 7. I spend a good portion of my working days using Photoshop so when a new release is released by Adobe I’m always eager to try it out. I downloaded Photoshop CS6 when Adobe made the Beta available back in March and although its more evolution than revolution it does have some nice new features, I’ve listed the ones I’ve found most useful below.
