@AlanGilbertson - It is a tough skill to learn. ;P

comment Dealing with narrow form fields
+1 - This might end up being the direction that I go. I prefer having the labels on top, but that doesn't seem to work visually with this particular form, so this could be the best option.

comment Dealing with narrow form fields
+1 - I see what you're saying and it's a decent idea visually. However, it makes the form harder to read and fill out because you have to travel back and forth across the screen. It can work for some parts of a form like an address or a credit card section, but grouping some of the fields in this form doesn't quite seem logical as the groupings are somewhat arbitrary. Also, from what I can tell from what I've read, the best converting forms are straight up and down.

comment Getting fonts for design mockups
To be clear, I accepted this answer for Tim's suggestion in the comment, not the paid application, as that's what I ended up doing.

comment Getting fonts for design mockups
That's actually what I ended up doing, downloading from Joe's archive. Apparently you can also download individual fonts from Google by clicking on "Add to my collection".

Couldn't you just paste this photo into your graphics program and use the eyedropper to get the hex value?

It's not a book, so I'm making it a comment, but I wrote an article on this very subject a few weeks ago: virtuosimedia.com/design/theory/design-basics-for-programmers

comment What is the single most influential book every designer should read?
@e100 - True, but the premise of the book, 'Don't make me think', could be applied to many areas of graphic design.

comment What web graphics formats to use?
@Damon - I think it depends on the image. If you have a photo or a lot of colors, I would probably go with a .jpg over .png.
