Crimes Against Designers

Designers like to grumble about occasionally unreasonable clients, but this collection of classic client comments was collated for a good cause (fund raising for an Irish children's hospital). The comments are all real, with "I have printed it out, but the animated gif is not working", "can you turn it around in Photoshop so we can see more of the front" or "I'm the target market and I don't like it" revealing a certain gulf opening up between client and creative.


Wire Worm for Photoshop

While it sounds like a nasty intestinal parasite, Wire Worm is a plugin designed to rid your photographs of pesky unwanted artefacts (particularly wires). Like many modern Photoshop plugins and features, it does a lot of the heavy lifting automatically, calculating the replacement colour /tones and shapes from the surrounding background. And it does a pretty good job, cutting down on the need for fiddling around with endless cloning and other patching techniques.
