TAMU Webmaster's Blog


Information and insight from the A&M Webmasters

Friday (now Monday) freebies

For those of you who work in graphic design or with graphic designers, a couple of resources came across my screen that I think might be of interest and/or use.

The first is by way of wanna-be-Chik-Fil-A-Cow, Wally Wellborn, over in OAR who clued me in to an archive post from Deb Richardson regarding Firefox 3 color support. So for those of us who struggle with the browser not rendering as richly as Photoshop, there’s a way in Firefox to do it.

According to Wally, editing the about:config page is pretty easy and it livens up the color quite a bit.

The other resource is a help for when you get a mockup or a graphic and you have no clue to what font it is that is being used. Identifont takes 550+ font publishers, almost 150 font vendors representing over 7,000 fonts and helps you figure out which font it is that’s being used. You can look at samples, or use their Q&A system to identify. Pretty handy for finding the exact font or one that’s pretty close.
