Creative Community Bulletin 06 May 2009 Through 08 May 2009

These are the arti­cles, blogs, and resources I found inter­est­ing and wor­thy of shar­ing for 06 May 2009 through 08 May 2009:

  • Capture your dis­plays as a Photoshop lay­ered image – Don’t waste time cap­tur­ing each win­dow sep­a­rate­ly, import­ing them in your favorite PSD edi­tor, nam­ing the lay­ers, posi­tion­ing the images, etc.

    Do it with Layers in no time! Press the cap­ture hotkey or cus­tomize your cap­ture in the inspec­tor. You’ll obtain a full fledged PSD file with one lay­er per win­dow, includ­ing menu and desk­top icons, dock and menubar.

  • Facebook Easter Eggs – Konami Code, Pirate Language – If you enter the Konami code (↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A ENTER – don’t do in a text box) after log­ging into Facebook you get a lens flare effect any­time you click, scroll or type any­thing. Good times. Unless your epilep­tic, in which case, dan­ger­ous times.
  • NPR: Lessons Learned From The Great Free-Chicken Fiasco Of 2009 – Kentucky Grilled Chicken is now the James Frey of fast food: some­thing Oprah threw her sup­port behind, and now will wind up hav­ing to apol­o­gize for in one way or another
  • Google to Let Users Post Bio Notes on Name Search Pages – Google now gives users the option to post a link to a Google pro­file at the bot­tom of name-query search pages, mean­ing that any­one search­ing for a user online can view infor­ma­tion that the user wants the world to see. This poten­tial­ly allows Google to use its search engine to cre­ate more of a social net­work­ing pres­ence online, sim­i­lar to Facebook and Twitter.
  • Terry White’s Tech Blog » MetaX com­pletes me – The one thing I’ve found out about blog­ging is that if you blog about a prod­uct or work­flow, there’s usu­al­ly some­one out there read­ing that post that’s either done the same thing you’re doing or tried oth­er prod­ucts that do sim­i­lar things. I’ve got­ten some of my best tech rec­om­men­da­tions from the com­ments area of my posts. Well my blog read­ers were very quick to offer sug­ges­tions to help with my project this time too. Blog read­er “Noël” sug­gest­ed an app called MetaX, which would pull in the Movie Poster art AND oth­er data. Well of course I went to go check it out and I was floored by how well it works!

  • Typographic Ideas | – I always get attract­ed to amaz­ing com­put­er arts done using typog­ra­phy. Typography can be used to turn text from a rough mate­r­i­al to a cre­ative tool to deliv­er your idea nd get the user attraction.
  • The Colorful Art Of Radiology by COLOURlovers – In the sum­mer of 2007, artist and med­ical stu­dent Satre Stuelke start­ed the Radiology Art project. Dedicated to the deep­er visu­al­iza­tion of var­i­ous objects that hold unique cul­tur­al impor­tance in mod­ern soci­ety, this project intends to plant a seed of sci­en­tif­ic cre­ativ­i­ty in the minds of all those inclined to par­tic­i­pate. lim­it­ed edi­tion prints are avail­able of some images.
