Photoshop Warning Dialogue With An Exclamation Point

I hadn’t seen this warning in years, but came across it today while choosing “Create Layer” on a layer’s blending effects.

Are there any other Photoshop dialogues that have exclamation points? None that I can think of.

Disabling the “Could not export the clipboard because it is too big to export” Photoshop Warning

As an active Photoshop user, I usually get this error message a few times a day:

Well today I decided to do something about it, dammit. Turns out it’s an easy fix; just go into the “General” tab of your preferences and uncheck the box called “Export Clipboard.” Duh.

As image file sizes get larger and larger, I don’t know why Adobe doesn’t disable this by default in future versions of Photoshop. Do many people actually copy something in Photoshop and want to paste it elsewhere?

Pixel density comparison: iPhone 3 and iPhone 4

Clearly I’m not the first dude to weigh in here, but I wanted to get a real-world sense of the increased resolution on the iPhone 4′s “Retina Display.”

In these photos I’m holding an iPhone 3Gs in front of two computer displays running Apple’s iPhone Simulator. The Simulator is running a virtualized version of iOS 4.0.1 set to mimic the iPhone 4 device. The iPhone 4 simulator looks huge on the computer screens because today’s Macs have pixel densities in the 72-120 range, while the iPhone 4′s pixel density is 326.

Pre-dousing any flamey comments, I’m fully aware this is 100% unscientific so I offer this information purely for my own delight. That said, if you have something positive to share, surprise me. :-)

An iPhone 3Gs held roughly 30″ away from a 27″ iMac running a simulated iPhone 4 interface. Badass.

Same as above, but with a 1920×1080 display. I needed to hold the iPhone roughly 34″ away to get the sizes to match.

Dubai in LIC

After seeing this post at kottke.org I made this quick and dirty mockup below. The takeaway: it’s a tall fucking building.

Snooth Cycling Jersey

Check out my design for the first ever Snooth Cycling Jersey. If you work for a winery or wine merchant, speak up on the Snooth Forums and we just might include your logo for free.

Photoshop jockeys might appreciate how I simulated the stretching fabric on the back. All I needed was an iPhone, a t-shirt, a bottle of wine, and a dream. Which is coincidentally how most of my weekends begin.

Mount Everest Tilt-Shift

When I saw this satellite photo of Mount Everest, I couldn’t not put a tilt-shift effect on it. The result is pretty cool:
