When you need to capture an image of a long website design, don’t spend your billable hours stiching together multiple screenshots.
Mac-based designers should download a free copy of Paparazzi instead.
In Paparazzi, simply enter the URL and click Capture. Your web page loads in a small preview window. You can save the resulting image in a file format of your choice.
Tip: Use Paparazzi to preview what a site will look like at different resolution. Change the Crop Size pop-up to one of the presets (640×480, 800×600, 1024×768), or enter your own dimensions. You’ll get a sense for how well the site design works with different size displays.
Microsoft’s Exchange Server has become an industry standard for providing shared calendars, shared contacts, and centralized email across an organization. An Exchange Server can be a great choice for teams that already have a solid Windows-based infrastructure in place.
But what if you run a Mac-based studio?
That’s a question we get asked a lot. Especially by the owners of medium-sized creative studios. Their teams have the same need for centralized calendars and contacts. A good solution for Mac-based creative teams has been hard to find.
At Creativetechs, we’ve recently started installing and supporting the Kerio Mail Server. This question is becoming a little easier to answer.
You’ve designed a new logo, identity, and business papers for a good client. It looks great. They are happy. Then a simple request derails everything:
“Can I get a copy of my new letterhead to use in Microsoft Word?”
That seemingly innocent question has driven more than one designer to distraction. While this week’s creative tip won’t win people over to designing in Microsoft Word full-time, we can help make this client request a little easier to accomplish.
One of the big problems we at Creativetechs run into while supporting creative pros is helping our clients keep track of all those crucial details: Passwords, network settings, mail server addresses, email addresses, hardware specifications, serial numbers, etc. Thus we give you the Mac Memory Book:
This topic is less exciting than our first guide, My Mac Won’t Start — and a scrap of folded paper does not replace the need for good organization. But if you’ll fill this guide out for each computer in your office, and keep it handy, this information will come in useful time and time again.
