Have a Website? It’s Time to Add a WebClip Icon

WebClip Icons are strictly for iPhone & iPod Touch users, but since they are quite the popular little devices, website owners might want to think about adding a WebClip icon soon. A WebClip icon is the icon that the iPhone/iPod Touch uses if a user adds your site to their (now customizable) homescreen/s. I would expect that most people who would bookmark BittBox on the iPhone would just read the RSS feed, but as a site owner, I don’t want to leave anything to chance. I want my icon to look the way I want it to look, and not rely on the iPhone to do it for me. Think of it as a really big favicon.

Use Camera Raw to Process Jpegs

I’m pretty sure this is new to CS3 (please chime in if you have CS2, because I don’t) but you can now open jpegs with Photoshop’s Camera Raw plug-in. Camera Raw is essentially what the name suggests, a RAW image processor, built into Photoshop. CS3 now allows us to open jpegs in this neat little editor. You might ask yourself: “Why would I need to use Camera Raw? Why not just edit the image in Photoshop itself?” Well, maybe you don’t want to use Camera Raw, but it’s nice to know you have the option. Especially if you take a lot of pictures in jpeg format (or your camera doesn’t shoot RAW) and you just want to tweak your images without having to apply tons of adjustment layers to get what you want.

Found Freebie: Vector “Tags”

Man, these are neat. I didn’t know what else to call them except for ‘tags,’ but that’s exactly what they are. These free vectors are available over at Pixlpusher, a young blog, but if he keeps making freebies like this, he should be in all of our RSS subscriptions very soon. Great job, Pixlpusher ;)
