    Comment on teaching prepress to student graphic designers

    Exactly. What good is a design if you can't get it printed correctly or if it has to be reworked at the press and charged more.

    I see no reason a institution of learning isn't allotting...

    My question is: what do these teachers, professors or supervisors thinks is wayyyyy more important to a print graphic designer that how an actual piece is printed? Spot color vs CMYK, trapping, bleeds,and...

    I don't think anyone here is gonna do work without actual pay unless you were a charity or something.

    The problem with "teaching students prepress" is the fact that there are more printing processes out there than just the standard 4-color press and that professors aren't schooled in everything...

  • Main machine at work is now a Mac

    It makes me feel slightly dirty

    anyhoo - any Mac web designers? What HTML and or CSS editor do you use. I use Topstyle Pro, which is hands down the greatest editor I have ever used, but it's PC only. I've started to use BBEdit - not sure how much I like it - any others?

    BBEdit and Dreamweaver.

        A text editor is a text editor... I think a nice keyboard is more important than good software, when it comes to typing code.



        So, now that you're on a Mac... I bet you really miss making websites in Microsoft Word and Front Page. j/k

            I haven't used textmate before so I can't give you any thing to compare with. Ned is right though, a text editor is a text editor. As long as you like the way it highlights your code, and it has enough features to satisfy you, then it should work just fine. I use bbedit simply because the interface is very clean, it has a built in FTP client, and I can quickly navigate through functions and classes in my code.

              I'm a PC user, but I have no problems with Macs. As far as software, I'd try to use Dreamweaver because it actually finishes a lot of code lines for you. A pop-out list comes up with you start typing and as you slowly limit the options from "a" to "ahref" it gives you less choices and eventually fills in the code you're looking for. Being a person that is doomed to have typos for life, I love that feature.
              Broke or just cheap? Read my list of free open source alternatives to Adobe Creative Suite software.

                Read the thread, dreamweaver is not an option.

                As for the right-side, **** that. A computer is a tool period. No need for "my tool is bigger than yours" discussion

                EDIT: Textmate looks nice. I think I will give it a trial run.

                    indeed - nothing more dull that the whole PC / MAC debate. I have a PC at work too, (MAC on left, big monitor in middle, thinkpad on right)but as I access it via remote desktop it's a bit laggy.

                    That plus the fact that CS2 is on the Mac it makes life much easier to just use the MAC as the development machine

                    I'm so used to TopStyle, and I know it so well that BBedit just feels weird. I guess I just need to get used to a different editor. I'm going to test out Textmate this week

                        they see no need to have it - we all hand code, and so DW just becomes the world's most expensive text editor!
