FotoGlif – Source for Photos

While searching the internet, I stumbled upon a website called fOTOGLIF. What is FotoGlif? You may be asking… Well it is awesome. It is a site that allows you access to editorial photos for FREE! Especially, if you are a blogger or a designer this is a site that you should definitely stop by. Check it out and let us know what you think about it in the comments below.



Are you new to web design? Do you know how to turn a photoshop file into a working webpage? Well, like many people I know, I have basic photoshop and dreamweaver skills. So, when I head that you could turn a PSD into XHMTL and create a CSS file. I was all about it. I would rather find out how to take an Illustrator file and turn it into a website, but when I find that out, I will pass it along to you guys. Anyways, while strolling through the internet, I came across these two tutorials. The tutorials are on Six Revisions which is an awesome site and resource for web designers and developers; and were written by Richard Carpenter, who is a blogger, tutorial writer and owner of HV-Designs.

Tutorial One – Design a Minimal and Modern Portfolio Layout in Photoshop
In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a portfolio layout in photoshop

Tutorial Two – Minimal and Modern Layout: PSD to XHTML/CSS Conversion
In this tutorial, you will take the photoshop file that you made in the tutorial above and turn it into a working webpage. You will also learn some of the basics of creating a CSS file.

Between these two tutorials, you will be able to develop and implement your website ideas quickly. Let me know what you think about these tutorials?
