comment Difference between kerning vs letter spacing?
After designing my first few business cards/brochures, I sort of stumbled upon the power of kerning. It makes a huge difference.

comment How to design sleek magnifying glass effects like these?
@Daniel Certainly more realistic, but perhaps realism isn't always the best thing to shoot for. It's artsy, but perhaps not as functional. Glad you like it, though. :p

comment Photoshop CS5: Setting a black background to transparent
Out of curiosity, is there a way to do this if the picture isn't grayscale? Maybe do the same, and then making a copy of the original layer, applying it with "Color" blending mode?

+1 for "looking at examples." Oh, and steampunk is awesome!

comment Title text color for header
I was thinking yellow myself. If you wanted to do white, I'd darken up the foreground gray a bit and lose 50% of the saturation on the blue. I guess it depends on whether or not you want the text to go over both the buildings and the sky, or just the sky.

I thought about doing a Spherize too, but the problem with it is that it's going to distort the text pretty badly. I'll edit my answer to show the distortion.

comment How to design sleek magnifying glass effects like these?
Dunno... seems pretty self-explanatory to me. It's possible that I missed a step in there, seeing as how I wrote it all down before actually doing it... but I've read over it even after doing it, and it seems like it should work just fine.
