Handy Links 1

Handy Links

Now that I've been blogging more regularly, I want to share the best links I'm coming across each week.

Derek Powazek and John Gruber offer regular links and commentary I enjoy, so I've decided to post my own handy links too.

Propane for Campfire

I've been using Campfire with my office colleague Kris Hunt and we're finding it a great resource while working together on a large design project. Propane provides a standalone app to manage your Campfire account on the Mac, taking some burden off of the browser and offering great integration with Campfire. Propane is $20 during the beta period.


I'm currently working on creating a vector-based sketchnote font for sale and one of the challenges with digital goods is selling them online. This week I found Pulley, a service designed to help sell digital goods (like fonts) though it can handle much more. Plans start at $6 per month, topping out at $49 per month at the high end.

Cognition's Twitter Comments

This week I came across a very nice execution of integrating Twitter tweets into a blog as a commenting engine at the new Cognition blog from Happy Cog. Very slick.

Photoshop Snap to Pixel

I've been working in Photoshop for a recent project, and one of my issues has been how different it works from Fireworks, where I typically do my UI/web design. Edward Sanchez's article on snapping to pixel in Photoshop helped make Photoshop more usable for me, along with the 'Duplicate Layers' feature Kris Hunt passed along. Hope it helps you too.

See you next week.
