Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev

Hey there Devious CSSkinners!
First off, hover over the Title and Stamp to see some snazzy effects. That's the kind of stuff that CSS3 allows users to play around with. As I had been an Alpha Tester on devBUG, we had a few CSS3 privileges to test in Journal Skins in which several deviants had asked me "How did you do that?" and "Please share the code so we can learn" so I've been meaning to give a few lessons on CSS3 since forever and projecteducate has given me the opportunity to do so
These are the Topics that will be covered this week:
May 27th - Introduction
May 28th - Color Gradients
May 30th - Pseudo-elements & Pseudo-Classes
May 31st - Transition Animations
June 2nd - Conclusion

Things are about to take a turn for the worse.
And by a turn for the worse, I mean, we're about to venture DOWN A DARK HALL.
(See what I did there?)
For June's book club (and Book Club's anniversary!) we're reading a classic by teen thriller queen Lois Duncan. I was first introduced to Lois Duncan when my 7th grade teacher, Ms. Corcoran, read one of her thrillers (I think it was DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU) aloud to us (how cool is it that I had a teacher who read aloud to 7th graders?!) I was immediately hooked.
Lois Duncan is the award winning author of such classics as I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and STRANGER WITH MY FACE and DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU and KILLING MR. GRIFFIN. Many of her books

Sans serif — Roman
In this article/tutorial I will show you how to design a typeface. I will cover the basics and show you how to design advanced letters as well. There is so much I can talk about though, so if people like this article I might expand on this with future articles and get more into detail. I will only cover the design though, so you will have to research how to do the spacing and programming and turn your typeface into a usable font—or wait until I might do an article on that as well, but I don’t have such an article planned anytime soon.
What will we design?
I will first show you how to design some basic letters for a geometric sans typeface like Futura, because it utilizes geometric shapes, which is always my starting point for every typeface regardless of style. O

Why edit digital photos?When a digital camera leaves the factory, it is set in such a way that it captures the most detail possible. Unfortunately, this means it is set for very low contrast, low saturation and it will usually be too bright. There are reasons for this.Why edit digital photos?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. It is set too bright because the rule of thumb for capturing detail with a device that captures a positive image (slide film, Polaroid and digital cameras) is to shoot for the highlights and develop for the shadows. The opposite holds true for negative images. This means that, if it is set too bright, it exposes the image so that the zone 10 areas (whites and highlights) will reveal detail when the photo is darkened in editing.
2. The contrast is set low so that the detail in the dark and light areas will be visible, even though it isn't if you are looking at it with your eyes through the viewfinder. The dark and white areas will be too grey.
3. The saturation is set low because rich dark colors hide detail, like the texture in cloth.

Jesus says to Nicodemus in John 3:3 "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." You must know Jesus Christ as your Savior to go to heaven. No matter what any religion, doctrine, teacher, preacher or psychologist tells you, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven. Jesus loves you...so much that He died for you, so that you would not have to go to a devil's hell of eternal torture and fire. It IS a real place, and unless you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, that is where you're headed, and time is running out to get things right. Once in hell, there will not be a second chance to ask Jesus to forgive you for your sins and turn to Him for salvation, nor will there be a second chance to accept His free g
