Random Tip: Photoshop Kerning

Ever thought your letters were just too far apart in a word you typed in photoshop?


Here's an easy way to adjust them in photoshop (I use CS4 but this tip should work in some older versions).

When your cursor is between characters, hold down the "Alt" key and hit the left arrow key to decrease the space between each letter. You can also hold down Alt and hit the right arrow key to increase the space, if you so wish.

New Music Monday - And So I Watch You From Afar

And So I Watch You From Afar

I've had a penchant lately for instrumental rock. I've been listening to God is an Astronaut and Explosions in the Sky lately, so it's not surprising that And So I Watch You From Afar reminds me of them. Except way more rock, less mellow, and more awesome.

I also love the titles of their songs. Things like "A Little Bit of Solidarity Goes a Long Way", "If It Ain't Broke... Break It", and "Don't Waste Time Doing Things You Hate". So fucking full of win.

They'll be at SXSW if you'll be there.

Handmade Highlight - stepanka

Let me tell you how much I absolutely adore the ceramics at http://stepanka.etsy.com. A ton! I want just about everything in the shop.

She makes the cutest mugs. I'm probably going to have to buy one soon.

Best part about them? The bottoms have translucent stampings.

Plus she makes these wall pillows. Little 3D ceramic works of art for your wall. How cool is that?

Head over to http://stepanka.etsy.com yourself to see more of the things she's making now. :D

To Do: 3/13/10 Weekend

It's gonna be a busy (and mostly boring, unfortunately) weekend.

Also, I left off making the most delicious shrimp quesadillas EVAR. That will be not boring and awesome.

I'm going to be making up a bunch of chainmaille tutorials soon. They are going to have big, clear pictures and lots of details with step-by-step instructions. They are going to be the most best tutorials ever. You'll see! :D
