Photoshop is still the most used tool for photo editing and it looks like it will be like so forever. The main reason why it became such a popular tool is because of its amazing editing features.

The community behind Photoshop is very active and resources can be found at every step.
If you`re looking for something related to Photoshop, like a custom filter, an action or a new gradient, it`s enough to search on Google to find plenty of fresh elements, ready to be added to your design toolkit.
This weekend I`ve been working on some cute user interface elements and decided to group them in an UI Kit and share it with you. Fortunately, times, when developers were more interested in functionality and didn’t give too much attention on design elements, are long gone.
Nowadays, when our lives are strongly linked to web and mobile applications, the importance of user experience in app development is mandatory and because of this fact, the way design blends with functionality can make the difference between good and great applications.
Since photo editing tools became available and affordable, people started to unleash their creativity and transpose it on screen and one way to do it was to create what we call photo manipulation. We don`t need an easel and watercolors to paint anymore, we just open Photoshop, grab the paintbrush tool, import a bunch of photos and manipulate them into digital art. Even if they showcase landscapes or sceneries, sci-fi, surreal or are just abstract, this kind of photo editing are really awesome and enchant and surprise us each time we see them!

Today is the 1st day of March which means Spring is here! Although astrologically speaking, spring starts on the day of the vernal equinox, which usually occurs on the night of 20/21 March (an equinox is a time when the nights are as long as the days and the vernal equinox is recognised the world over as the start of the new astrological cycle), because of the variation in the days on which the equinox and falls, it is more convenient to use whole months. So, goodbye winter, hello spring!
