comment How can I make a screenshot look like a photograph taken of a real surface?
I wasn't the one that down voted, but as has been discussed, masking a blur does not emulate lens blur or tilt-shift blur. The depth of field effect varies the blur radius with depth. Changing the opacity on a blur with a uniform blur radius doesn't do that. Instead of slightly blurring the mid-depth, it just produces a translucent shadow/halo.

comment Are Macs preferable to PCs for handling graphics software?
@JFA: There's also Boot Camp for dual booting on Macs. Or you can use Parallels to run Windows or Linux on VM. Or you can use Alt/Option during boot to boot Linux off of a USB drive.

@Eric: Are there any tools/scripts that can pull timestamps from commit messages to generate a timesheet for you automatically?

comment Advice on re-quoting a client for a freelance project
ApolloHQ is a project manager that has timekeeping capabilities. For billing, there are a bunch of apps that help you generate virtual timesheets: timely / toggl / tsheets / freshbooks / tickspot / harvest / cashboard / paymo.biz / intervals / rescuetime / hourdoc / ace project / 5pm / goplan / clientspot / slimtimer / punchytime / functionfox / 14dayz / time-assistant. Also there are these desktop apps: yatimer / vertabase timer / timetrek / premember / klok / easytimetracking.net / timepost2.

I think there are also project management apps that keep track of your time for you. This way both you and your client know exactly how much time has been spent on the project and everyone is on the same page at all times.

comment Photoshop Resolution for Web Design?
Even for the iPhone4, you'd still just be working based on pixel dimensions. There's nothing special about a 960x640 display that suddenly changes that. There have long been mobile devices of similar sizes with resolutions of 800x480 or higher. It still doesn't make sense to have phones with lower resolution screens download memory-consuming hi-res images that will only be displayed at half resolution--especially as the they'd probably look awful without being properly resampled.

comment Designing around an awful logo
@Doug: In that case, he's probably a lot less attached to that design than his mother his. And his mother may not be so much attached to the logo as the fact that it's designed by her son. So collaborating with the son may be a way to at least tweak the logo a little, which may open the door to a more radical logo change at some point.
