Solid. Apparently he scans everything into Photoshop Elements & organizes it there:
Stream Web fonts right into Photoshop
Extensis has released a free beta of their Web Font Plug-in for Photoshop CS5+. The plug-in (a panel) allows you to use fonts from WebINK (a web font rental service from Extensis) in the creation of website mock-ups in Photoshop. Using the plug-in requires downloading a trial version of the Suitcase Fusion 3 font manager, though it’ll keep running even after the trial period expires.
I haven’t yet gotten to try out the panel, but I’m intrigued. If you have feedback on it or just general thoughts on Web fonts & design tools, please chime in.
Update: Here’s an in-depth overview & demo video.
InfColorPicker: An open-source iOS color picker
While at Adobe Troy Gaul implemented the Lightroom & ImageReady color pickers, including supports for choosing Web-safe colors (a godsend to me when it arrived). Now that he’s an independent developer, he’s released InfColorPicker, an open-source color picker for iOS.
By the way, if you use Instagram & have an iPad, you should get Troy’s Instagallery app; lots of nice attention to detail.
