A new world creating video game tool which reminds me very much of #Minecraft and #Sauerbraten

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

I love video games and video game technology.

Behind the scenes of video games, is an ever changing world of 3D tools. These software programs which artists uses to create the 3D worlds of video games are constantly evolving and new tools are always emerging. Today I found out about a fun looking 3D editor which will allow realtime 3D world building a-la Minecraft or Sauerbraten at a higher res.

I can only Rasterise Illustrator objects as CMYK how do I rasterize them as RGB?

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

CMYK are the primary colours of pigment (well, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow are - the black is a key colour, hence the “K”). But you may find yourself editing some artwork in Illustrator and you need to rasterize some vectors and/or images and the only option Illustrator gives to you is CMYK. This is fine if you are going to print the artwork because you will need the image in the primary colours of pigment in order to print them, but if you only want to view the artwork on screen or make a PDF for on screen viewing or if you are creating a web image, then you will want to rasterize as RGB.

How DO you rasterise images or objects in Illustrator as RGB if there is no option to do so?

Actually there IS a rasterise as RGB option in illustrator and it’s easy to find.

#Photoshop just got #pwned. 2D photo objects turned to photo-realistic 3D ready for animation.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

Wholly (i.e. not partially) mother of a daughter (or son). This is Epic. Photoshop just got owned in a big way and I love it.

I've been 3D modelling and photo editing for the better part of twenty full years professionally and today I got exited out my pants.

Check out this program which will allow you to replace a 2D objects in a photo with a 3D ones. It uses the information within the photo to create the lighting and material maps with some user assistance of course. Once the object is 3D, full animation and photo manipulation on a new level is possible.

Brain exploded.

Take a look at the vid and get ready to never ever believe anything you see ever again.

Oh, and you can actually download this freak'in shizzle and try it fo yo'self. Get busy!

How do I change the order of Payments modules in #Prestashop

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

Many people, who use Prestashop 1.6 may run into the problem that they don’t know where to change the order the payment options appear in when checking out (on the payment page). Of course everyone wants the most used/preferred payment option at the top, but how do you move that payment option to the top if it’s not already ordered that way?

I fiddled around getting nowhere with the modules until I finally noticed the answer, staring me right in the face. Add a comment

What to do if Filezilla crashes and you need to download an older version.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

Filiezilla is a fantastic FTP program. I have been using it for years. My thanks goes out to the developer(s) for such a great product. Unfortunately it occasionally happens that bugs aren’t apparent until after an update is released. This might mean that until a more stable version replaces it, you might have to find an older version if the one you just installed crashes.

Ok. You just downloaded filezilla and it now crashes whenever you make a file transfer (or something like that) right? Today I downloaded the latest Mac OS X version (FileZilla Client 3.9) and I it is constantly crashing (freezing) on OS X 10.9.4. I have to force quit it. Going to the filezilla website wasn’t immediately fruitful either, I really had to dig to fin the download pager for older versions of fileziller.
 
Here is how to roll Filezilla back: Add a comment

This week I discovered yet another art program for an Apple MAC looking to dethrone Adobe Illustrator, or is it setting it sights on Photoshop? It's hard to say because this baby does both vector and rasta; At once.

Sure Pixelmater can too and iDraw also has great options for getting down with your pixel loving self, but after a few short minutes I can recommend you take a look at Affinity it looks like a doozy and at a reasonably price. Add a comment

Here is a quick tutorial to show you how to place a responsive image into your website in HTML. It was designed to be used in a module of a popular CMS like Joomla, Drupal or Wordpress so that the image is responsive and resizes according to the browser windows size, but should work on an web page you design.
