Hi all,

I have delivered designs to my developer but as always the end result is not the way I designed it. Does anyone know if there is a good free online editor so I can draw arrows and add comments to the webpage? What does the reviewers use? I would really appreciate some help in this matter. Thanks alot!

I think you should use images which make look the site as beautiful and cool as possible. The better it looks, the more sales you’ll get.
But what about copy? Say for instance I would design a template for a investment bank, should I then use copy connected to the financial industry or copy connected to the psd like “Get this multipurpose psd today”? I see authors mix this up alot but what does the reviewers prefer?

I think most of the templates just use some lorem ipsum dummy content. And indeed some big titles refering to the theme itself. So a big title saying “Get this theme today” would be good.

But in the end the content doesn’t really matter, only if it looks good. Especially since it’s a multipurpose design they won’t have a look at what the content is actually saying.

Great, thanks alot for you input!

Hi all,

I am in between projects at the moment so I figured I would upload some designs to the PSD Category. However I have some questions about dummy content. What does the reviewers prefer in terms of dummy content. Some use random images and copy as if it was a wordpress theme (pages, shortcodes etc.) and some use a fictional company with images and copy connected to the company. Some mix everything. It would be great if someone could share some light over this.

Thanks alot!

So you worked on the computers area for as long as 20 years and yet you call your old Windows/Linux a PC but a OS/X a Mac? I’m pretty sure Mac are PC as well.

PC stands for “Personal Computer” here so you are right. However since the hardware for both are different in many ways, people decided to use PC / Mac to refer to them. Otherwise we would have to say Win PC / Mac PC all the time. People found that unnecessary I guess so this is sort of an unwritten rule.

To OP : I did not use Mac but you should decide depending on your situation. If you are sticking with Mac from now on, it could be better to learn it’s shortcuts. But if you might return, or already use PCs somewhere else between days, sticking to a single setup would be less confusing.

Thanks for your input! I have a mac at work and a pc at home but I will in a near future go all mac so I guess I have to learn the shortcuts. How hard could it be, maybe a week or two?

I switched to a Mac this year after using Windows and Linux for a long time. I had the same issue with ctrl/cmd/my pinky. If you’re committing to Mac, I’d recommend learning the new keyboard shortcuts – that’s what I did and it came quickly enough. Though if you plan to switch between Mac and Windows a lot, it may make sense to remap in Mountain Lion for consistency. Enjoy the new machine! :)

Thats the reply I was looking for! Actually Im all apple now. My wife and kids have iphones, ipads and macbooks and my clients are more used to mac so its a done deal. I told people over at Dribbble I was using windows and they had a good laugh…:-) I guess I will take your advice and learn the keys. Are you using the mac keyboard and mouse? I had a mechanical steelseries before and loved it so the mac keyboard feels a little tiny to me. Again, thanks for your response. I really appreciate it.
