  • A Snip-Snap: Background-Remover PhotoScissors For Half The Price (Win/Mac)

  • Pump up da Project: 5 Must-Have JavaScripts (February 2014 Edition)

    Have you already heard of “You might not need jQuery”? That site created ripples soon after its release a few weeks ago. It suggests that you might be better off targeting modern browser features directly, instead of relying on jQuery to achieve basically the same. Then again, who as a developer can actually determine which browsers will definitely not be used for visiting the project about to be created. I have my doubts doubting jQuery overall, yet I have always had sympathies for JavaScripts that are self-contained and not dependent on jQuery. I would not recommend going for pure CSS at the moment, even if theoretically possible. JavaScript is needed anyway, so why not use it where suitable. Following I put together a fresh bunch of those that impressed me most lately…

  • IM FREE: Curated Collections of Free Commercial Use Photos No Designer Can Do Without

    Okay, this is new. At least that’s how I decided to apologize why I didn’t notice this service by IM-Creator earlier. Remember IM-Creator? The homepage builder equipped with templates made by freelance designers itself targets freelance designers and not the DIY thirteen year old son of the CEO’s golf mate. It was this same homepage builder that secretly (well almost…) introduced a new offering named IM FREE. IM FREE hosts curated collections with free, also commercially usable photos. And it contains quite a few gems…

  • Almost for Free: 17 Premium Responsive WordPress Themes

    Premium responsive WordPress themes. Does that not sound like your favorite tune? I know it does to my ears. And from our analytics backend we know that WordPress themes are among the top ten most wanted article topics here at Noupe, your wonderful design magazine. While free themes are always a solid traffic magnet, premium themes usually fall behind a little. Which is due to the fact, at least that’s my interpretation, that they are sometimes ambitiously priced. But what if we had premium themes closest to the most radical price of all. That’s what we want to show you today…
