Photoshop Web Design Tips

Good-Tutorials.com: Web design photoshop tips

Thanks to the designers at Amazing Media (Paul and Cuong) I learned to appreciate the power of Photoshop to help out with web design. By using Photoshop, plus the print screen function, you can quickly mockup, cleanup, or polish up a UI.

The above tutorial expands on this theme by giving you some additional ideas for how you can make certain web design activities painless by using photoshop.

I wish I could say that I find The Gimp just as useful as Photoshop, but alas, I'm unable to do so. Yes, the Gimp is free and will do in a pinch. But Photoshop is just so smooth and mature, that it's hard to beat. In fact, it's by far my favorite windows application (after the Windows version of emacs and cygwin, of course).

Seriously, I could live just fine without Word and Excel. But Photoshop, that's a keeper.
