  • Picjumbo: A New Collection of High-quality, Commercial-use Photos for Totally Free

    Photos are what web designers need in massive amounts. Yet, shooting each and every needed photo by yourself would soon become a full-time occupation in itself. Compromises are to be made. Thus, it’s no wonder that we see loads of stock libraries around. Who wants to use the same images, competitor X already uses? The need for heaps of fresh images is permanently rising. Besides the well-known stock libraries with their large collections of millions of pictures, smaller services have started to grow. Most remarkably these services offer smaller amounts of images, yet they do it for free. Some don’t even require back-links or proper attribution. Picjumbo by Viktor Hanacek from the Czech Republic is such a service…

  • Webydo vs. WordPress vs. Wix: Who Wins The Web Design Race? (Infographic)

    The web design industry is changing. Web design was once dominated by hand-written code, using tools that were pimped text-editors at best. Then tools evolved to help web designers spare some of the repetitive tasks of hand-coding and support them more by offering auto-completion or syntax-highlighting. It’s only since a few years that we see tools which are able to achieve much more than that. A new generation of website builders has arrived to help people not only stint on coding but dismiss it completely. But, not all website creators are equal. Webydo, who wants to be the center of your web design business, has teamed up with visual.ly to show the state of the industry as of today in a comprehensive infographic. Lets’s take a deeper look into it. It’s worth it…

What LayoutIt! creates is „only“ a kickstarter, an initial foundation to build up upon. Get your next Bootstrap 3 project up and running in a shortened period of time, and thank Entropeer’s tool, which just recently got overhauled to support version 3 of Twitter’s popular front-end framework.
