Today I spend some time looking for resources to help with web and graphic design. I found  CSS tutorials , photoshop brushes, WordPress code snippets that might come in handy, and new fonts.

  • “These brushes are not only good for roughing up or distressing your designs, but these Photoshop brushes are also great if you just need to reproduce a paint brush effect. So if you are like me and are looking for that perfect set of Photoshop brushes, download this set of brushes and give them a try. I think that you will like them.”
  • “WordPress 3.0, scheduled to launch May 1st, 2010, will be a real revolution for the blogging system. With new functionalities such as custom post types, developers will be able to create more complex and more powerful sites based on WordPress. In this article, I have compiled the most useful resources to get you started with WordPress 3.0.”

  • “Since script fonts are based on the fluid stokes of natural hand writing, they’re a great way to add a personal touch to a design. The only issue I have with script fonts is that I’ve always had trouble finding good ones when I need them. “

  • “Two years ago Chris Coyier wrote an outstanding tutorial detailing how you can generate a photo gallery based on the images within two directories: a thumbnails directory and an originals directory. I’ve decided to take his tutorial a step further by showing you how to generate thumbnails for the gallery using PHP. I’ve also implemented a MooTools lightbox: Smoothbox. The following code will show you how to create a beautiful photo gallery by simply dumping your photos in a directory.”

  • The CSS gradient feature was introduced by Webkit for about two years but was rarely used due to incompatibility with most browers. But now with the Firefox 3.6+, which supports gradient, we can style create gradient without having to create an image. This post will show you how to code for the CSS gradient to be supported by the major browsers: IE, Firefox 3.6+, Safari, and Chrome. Also, check out my updated dropdown menu (demo) using CSS gradient.

  1. I am having some issues with WordPress 3.0 and the Mystique theme. I have some code in the User CSS that are not functioning. The black navigation style and the page title center justification for my h2 headings are not working now. I would suggest you continue to hold off on the update. The new user interface is awesome and works smoothly and my mystique theme still works there were some unwanted style changes which I am sure I can figure out in time.
