I hope you all are doing well.

I found some cool utilities that some of you might like. They're real little, nothing major, but maybe some of you can use them.

This first utility called "Pure Text" which helps you transfer text without any of the HTML in it. This utility shows up in your tray, then you copy text, click the icon once in your tray and then paste where you want it. The trick is that once you clicked the icon, all text was stripped of any HTML. Much faster than to copy, open Notepad, paste in Notepad, re-copy and re-paste.

You can find it here: http://stevemiller.net/puretext/

This next utility is called "PrintKey 2000". If you ever find something that inspires you in a design, you can use the rectangle tool to copy any part of the screen and get a screen shot. While I don't encourage stealing images, I know there are some designs that inspire us.

You can find it here: http://www.webtree.ca/newlife/printkey_info.htm

Both of these are free to download and free to use. Check 'em out and they might come in handy.

Cheers!

Basically identical to http://www.obdev.at/products/launchbar/ for MacOSX, only for Windows. It's an application/file/bookmark/music file launcher. Hit alt+space in any application, then type the abbreviation of a program to launch it. For example MSN to launch MSN messenger, AOL to launch AOL messenger, PS to launch photoshop, IE to launch Internet Explorer, etc. I just started using it, but it's pretty handy so far. You don't have to move your hand to the mouse just to launch an application this way.

The only problem is it requires the 25meg .NET framework to be installed, as well as XP Service Pack 1. So installing what is actually a less than 1mb, quick, tiny program, turns out to be a pretty huge undertaking if you don't already have that stuff installed. :(

Hey everyone,

I was looking for...hmm, I forgot what, but I ran into this site here and downloaded "The Font Thing" which is a really cool utility so you can view all of your fonts and see which will work better for the design. It's only for PC, they don't seem to have a mac download.

This is great if you don't have a briefcase in your photoshop. It helps save time and effort, instead of looking through all of your fonts.

You can check it here and be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom until you see "The Font Thing".

It's a freebie.

Cheers

The new Panther version of OSX has a font book integrated in it, which already does those functions, so there is no need for a Mac download.

There is also this haxie http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/fontcard/

which lets you see the actual typefaces when you click on the font menu in photoshop. So instead of having to flip through them all, you can just see the font right in the drop down. It doesn't work in panther yet, but should sometime this month.
