    This would have been really trendy in the late 90's (the new retro era). Next they'll have a glossy orb with a gradient reflection below it....

    Hey everyone! After some helpful feedback from a few days ago, and spending some time talking to the client, I've spent a lot of time cleaning up this logo I'm doing.

    Indeed but it could be of use. Say that you have a 8 decimals file but in a layout you don't need those precise decimals. In that case it is good that you can choose how your excel file is imported.

  • mac vs. pc color correction??

    hey all, about 2 months ago I picked up a macbook pro, I've noticed something real weird... In photoshop using color code #424242 I get a nice dark gunmetal-ish type grey.. BUT whenever I use dreamweaver and input #424242 its ALOT more lighter than the color in photoshop, I mean ALOT, its impossible to match grey colors... Does anyone have any idea whats going on?? I've looked/read everywhere I cannot seem to fix it.

    What computer were you using before? Is this a problem you're noticing now that didn't happen on your earlier computer?

    I would say that as long as you have the values typed in correctly, you're probably okay, but the preview difference is strange, especially if it was okay before.

      I used a pc before... The preview differences are different and so is the final image... On a pc they would match, But on my screen they're two totally different shades of grey.. The only way I could show you is by taking a photograph of my screen.. It has always been like this, I've even had some reports of people running pcs that some of my images appear darker than they are on my mac... Which isnt good.

          I guess you are trying to match an image that you are going to insert with the background colour in dreamweaver?

          When you insert image into dreamweaver and preview in a browser, do they stil look different?

              I just did a test. You're right. Dreamweaver displays this colour as a light grey. But once you open your site in a browser it will match a jpg that is filled in with 424242. Don't worry about it!

                Also, if you fill 424242 in the "bg" bit next to where the blue folder is, you will get a light grey. But for some reason, when you put 424242 under this, where the colour box is, you will get the colour you are after.

                  Ultimately, I want photoshop to be the same shade as dreamweaver, because the dreamewaver is almost perfectly matched on my pc.

                    there you go! Buda, im putting 424242 under bg color in page propertise(apple+j) the outcome is above... that is color code: 424242 in both photoshop / dreamweaver see how bad it is.

                      Yeah but dreamweaver just a crappy preview.

                      Insert a 424242 jpg square that you have created in Photoshop into your dreamweaver file with a 424242 background. They will look different. Save.

                      Have a go at opening up your html file now in your browser (internet explorer, mozilla, safari etc). It should be fine.

                          Really? It's not for me...Maybe your dreamweaver is snapping your colour to websafe colour automatically. I don't know how to fix this exactly...

                          In Photoshop colour panel, if you tick websafe colour, is that pretty much the colour that has come up in Dreamweaver?

                            I guess what you got to do now is to choose your colour in dreamweaver instead of in Photoshop. Work backwards maybe?

                              I uploaded the html/square to my pc and they blend PERFECTLY. where is this websafe option your taking about? I do not see it.

                              edit: the funny thing is the dreamweaver comes pretty close to the pc color... so that means all my imagese in photoshop are off for all pc users...

                              buda if i work backwards, samething will happend.
