3. Launchlist


Launchlist is intended to help and encourage web designers and developers to check their work before exposing it to the world at large. The product was born out of frustration. For too long we had been using archaic methods to conduct pre-launch testing and the web was an obvious choice to do it better. The process is simple – Enter your name and email and the same for a recipient (not required – but it’s best not to test your own work), your project details and website URL, and then proceed through our list of provided fields. If a question is irrelevant, you can tick N/A and it will be disregarded. You can even add your own custom fields at the bottom of the checklist if required. Once submitted, you and your recipient/s will receive a report of your checklist with a summary for your records.

4. Web font


The Fonts.com™ store from Monotype Imaging offers more than 150,000 font products for you to preview, purchase and download. You can also learn about new typeface releases and discover typographic tips and techniques.

    Don’t forget about http://www.rsizr.com

    rsizr is a Flash application that lets you resize JPG, PNG, and GIF images on your computer. With rsizr, in addition to normal image rescaling and cropping, you can also resize images using a new image resizing algorithm called seam carving (a method of image retargeting) that tries to keep intact areas in your image that are richer in detail.

    Even if there are so many nice tools online, sometimes you don’t know what to use for the best results.

    I’ve been using PlanetSoho for a few months now. It’s been a great and easy to use tool for invoicing and time tracking. It’s definitely worth a try.
