  • Red Color in Web Design: Provocative or Attractive?

    The color red is the most sexy, passionate and provocative. In the color psychology, red symbolizes energy, love and emotions. A man gives red roses to a girl he is in love with; when a girl is in love she secretly draws red hearts in her diary. Another positive meaning of the red color is appetite stimulation. It is nothing but suitable for a food industry to use red, as for example red accents in the interior design of a restaurant or red colored tableware. Red has also a negative meaning: it is aggressive, it symbolizes anger and hatred; it is the color of war and blood. Still, if to think negatively and be pessimist, one can find bad side in everything. Let me ask you one primitive thing: don’t men like watching girls walking on the street in hot red dresses? Aren’t red lips tempting and magnetizing? This is how red turns to be provocative, but in a good sense of it.

  • Not Up For Creative Cloud? 10 Professional Alternatives to Photoshop CC

    Photoshop CC is no longer for sale. You can only rent it and pay a monthly fee to be allowed to use it.

But I can understand all those who only updated every three or four versions and would now have to shell out a lot more money than before. All of these will be eager to find a valid alternative to Photoshop CC. We took a look at ten of the best competitors…
