Free Drupal Tutorials

For a personal project I recently dove into the CMS framework Drupal. It’s is an open source content management platform powering millions of websites and applications. It’s built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of people around the world. Drupal is the best system for handling complicated database driven websites. The only down point is the steep learning curve.

Drupal is open source meaning it’s free. To learn the system, I have created a list of free Drupal video tutorials and decided to publish it as a starting point for everyone who is interested in Drupal web development. This is a live document so it will be updated regularly. Read more...

Knock out logo background

A quick tip if you need to knock out an even colored background of logo’s or images found on the net with nice clean edges.
Open your image in Photoshop.
First make sure the image is in RGB mode.
Go to: Image > Mode > RGB color
Then make the layer independent by double-clicking it in the layers window.
With one of the selection tools, select a portion of the background color.
Go to: Select > Similar

And all of the background pixels are selected.
Hit delete on the keyboard and you have a nice clean logo with perfect edges.
If the text in the logo is the same color as the background, go in quickmask-mode and paint in the text.
