GwynethJones's insight:

Sometimes you just want the number. Find the colour, type in the # and BOOYA, you're done.

 

Like embed widget code, you don't have to understand the number to make it work for you!

By the Power of Greyskull, these are just BRILLIANT!

 

Are they on Flickr Creative Commons? I'd love to show them to my kiddos & maybe do a set as a challenge!


But as for the special Photoshop effects - umm they are NOT “cool” or “good;” I'm sorry........ they are FLIPPING AWESOME! OK...they ARE super cool, too! Thank you for sharing these!


You had me at cosplay, then kept me with Photoshop! Did you know that PicMonkey also has amazing special effects?
Anyway, Cheers for the share! I'm a new fan!

What the Heck is a HEX Number?

 

If you blog or design sometimes you need that perfect colour!

 

You don't have to understand what a HEX number is - this is just a cheat sheet to grab it. Slide, find the perfect colour, cut & paste the number = Voila! Use it when you modify your Like & Feel Wiki or any blog or website that requires a hot HEX!

"This font represents the unparalleled strength of one man who saved an entire world from the crushing yoke of tyranny. This man was an outstanding captain of men, an American patriot of unquestionable calibre. And within this font is captured his fighting spirit, his unyielding determination. This face is dedicated to him, the captain America knows and respects, the captain America font designers like myself strive to symbolize in their work. So enjoy the power that is the font I call, American Captain. " @the_fontry
