Lorem Ipsum Dolar Sit Amet…What?

It gets ugly when designers decide to type stupid things like ‘Why is Adam Dachis Mocking Me?’ instead of Latin text in PSDs. Unfortunately, I’ve had the pleasure of coming across the creative writings of designers on a live website, months later (proof that programmers don’t read the copy). It also gets ugly when you try and make up your own Latin/Greek text….”Lorem ipsum dolar sit amet…consecutive ..er..ahh..frigator..why does Adm Dachis hate me?”

When I do need some real good fake text, I always head straight to Lipsum.com – they have plenty of fake text for you to choose from and even have a generator that will create just the right amount of text. You may also be interested to know that “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..” is an actual line of text from the work, “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC.

Photoshop – On the Web

Photoshop Express

Back when I was a producer at..ahem..cheap companies, producers weren’t allowed to have the full version of Photoshop. We got Photoshop Elements instead. Now Adobe is working on an online version of the ubiquitous photo editing software, Photoshop Express, still in beta. At first glance, it’s a slick Flash app that allows you to upload photos and crop, adjust levels and create galleries of your images with up to 2gb of free storage. The intro Flash screen is pretty cool and the application was intuitive to use. Maybe next-gen producers wont’t even need Photoshop – they’ll just use it on the Web?!

Take it for a test drive.
