Photoshop Brush Lag - Fix!

As a Graphic Designer and Website Designer, I use Adobe Photoshop a lot. I just figured a problem out so I wanted to share this fix I found for brush lag. Do you have a lag in your Photoshop brushes? It could be the Smoothing setting – set your Smoothing setting to 10% or less and the brush behaves like it should. For some reason, Adobe has it set at 100% by default in my version of Photoshop 20.0.6 on my Mac. What a simple fix, wish I had known this 6 months ago!! I had contacted Adobe and they said to reinstall my software, which, of course, did NOT fix the issue. I was avoiding using brushes because of the delay! Someone just commented on my other YouTube video about this problem, with th

Shopify vs. Wix - A Website Designer's Recommendation

As a Denver Website Designer, I design both in Wix and Shopify. Wix does have online store options including Wix Stores and Ecwid, but they’re not quite as complex or customizable from an ecommerce/options/shipping/taxes standpoint as Shopify stores. Wix is good for beginner stores that have simple needs, whereas Shopify is better for more complex online selling needs. Shopify is more customizable for online stores, but Wix is a lot better for easy editing of the page designs so you can customize every page and make it look polished. Shopify uses page templates so it’s harder to design nice looking custom sub-pages, and Shopify also costs more as a lot of design customization for the home

Eco Friendly Website Design

I love designing websites for eco friendly businesses and organizations! When I work on a website for a company in the green arena, I really enjoy it! I recently designed websites for some wonderful companies and organizations, here are a few of the Eco Friendly Website Design projects I've worked on: Rocky Mountain Composting: A Colorado composting company serving Denver County, Arvada, Wheat Ridge, Lakewood, Golden, Westminster and Edgewater. Eric Kenna, the owner, is great to work with, he's a hard-working guy bringing curbside composting service to Colorado! His mission is to help people learn what they can compost, and divert all of that valuable compostable material away from the landf

Remove Google Favicons from Search Results

Recently, I noticed that Google is adding color Favicons (tiny square image icons) that show up next to the search results for each page. These Favicons have historically been used to display next to the browser header URL field or in your bookmarks next to the websites, but now Google is experimenting with adding them to the actual search results. If ind that this clutters up the search results with unnecessary color. It doesn't add value to the end user either, most of these mini square Favicon images are typically hard to figure out what they represent as they are so tiny. What made Google the king of search engines was that they created a very CLEAN search result page, with simple blue l

Wix Web Designer Tip: Toolbar

As a Wix Web Designer, I train my clients on how to use the Wix editor going forward to keep their websites updated if desired. One of my top tricks is to use the Wix editor Toolbar. It has tons of useful features, including alignment tools, spacing tools. One of the Wix design tools I use most often is the Width and Height fields to size objects exactly as desired (if I want to make them all the same width or height, for example). I also use the super handy X and Y coordinates to easily move things to where I want on the page. The X and Y coordinates are especially handy if you have a super long/tall page and you add an element (it seems it always adds strips to the bottom), so you can use
