Can’t Edit A .gif Or .jpg File In Photoshop!

Ever down loaded a .gif or .jpg file and had trouble editing it. Tried clicking on the pad lock icon in the layer panel,but it want unlock.

Don’t worry this is a very simple fix. Just go to the image menu tab at the top of photoshop and then mode, you will see that the “indexed color” mode is ticked, now just change this to rgb color or cmyk color. Then go to the padlock again and try to unlock it now, you will find it works fine now.

Hope that was helpful.

What Do You want From Your Website designer?

As the owner of Solid Air Web a website design company based in Chester I am very interested in what a prospective client wants from a website designer. If I know what a client wants I can then provide it. Is it cost, is it great customer service, or just a great end product or all three.

My experience is that clients do not really know all that is involved in getting a website designed and up and running. It is therefore not just a part of my job but an important part of my job to fully explain all aspects of the design process, as it relates to them.

In today’s economic climate cost does seem to be one of the top factors in gaining clients, but should you then just pitch at the lowest price point you can?

This may not always be the wisest thing to do. My experience is that clients come in with an idea of what they want, you provide a cost based on the brief, which they find acceptable, but during the process of website design the client then realises they need something more. Your then left with the option of increasing the price or doing the extra work for free.
