comment What are good sets of photographic portraits to use in mockups?
@yisela - I already did, right after posting the comment - but instead of throwing it as an additional answer I simply edited this one :) See the bottom part of it, below the horizontal line.

@julien_c If so then here's a solution: Female and male photographs. Browse through the repository and pick what you need.

comment How to smooth it out/add curves less jagged edges and illustrator
Sadly - you need to overpaint, there's no easy solution other than that. (use pixel image as background and draw vector shapes on top of it)

comment How to design a websites using thin fonts that will look good in a web browser?
@plainclothes usually webfonts are already optimized for browsers (hence the name: WEBfonts), so you very rarely stumble upon any issues with them. Especially if you use some serious provider for them, not just random-stuff-found-on-random-website ;). Where issues occur are desktop fonts as that's the majority of the really good fonts in use currently.

@user568458 - looks brilliant! That's perfect. Should be more then good and easy enough for designer to test the fonts. Cheers!

Yes, I'm well aware of that, and that's the way I prefer to work, but the whole issue came out from the fact that the designers are few hundred miles away and there's hardly any way they could coordinate development all the way along with Dev team. Especially when dev team got it's own assignments. I know it's doable to create a tool that would allow simulating a behaviour of fonts in web browser, to actually predict if font behaves nicely or not, but I'm wondering if someone haven't made something like that already?

Yes, it is, but aiming at one target makes it easier to achieve it, so that later on I could consider covering additional targets. That's why I make websites in 1 browser and one 1 OS later on checking it and fixing on other OSes and other browsers. Covering all the bases all the way is nothing else then a waste of time.

"The bottom line is, you need to test webfonts in multiple browsers on multiple systems as early in the design process as possible" - any ideas how a designer with no clue on HTML or CSS might actually do it? Cause that's where from I get the designs >_>

Besides - let's not go too far with these differences. Only real differences that truly matter are non-aliased fonts and Safari-alike rendering next to this one from firefox. IE got slightly nicer AA, but still within eyesight error margin, so it doesn't matter, Chrome usually uses Safari-alike rendering, and well, chrome users are more used to seeing oddly ugly fonts then others ;) so I skip that too. Hence the most common client platform in FF with default Win settings. +slight error margin, but it's more like the one between sharp and strong rendering in PS.

Thin is that - targeting one specific platform basically reduces variety to the minimum. 99% of people using FF with Win7 will get the looks I did. Simply because very very few people ever touch any user settings that related to the font rendering in a browser. So I'd assume that what I aim for is what I have on my PC (which is quite accurate, as it perfectly matches my laptop as well, and I'm usually showing a website to the client on it during the meetings, so sounds like a perfect plan).
