November 2013: 10 Best Free Hi-Res Photos by Unsplash

A few months ago we introduced you to Unsplash.com, a project by Ooomf. Since then they kept promise and regularly released new images. Quality varies though. That’s why we decided to help separate the wheat from the chaff by publishing only the 10 best images released in November 2013. We do not necessarily choose those photos with the highest level of photographic artistry, but our eye is more on usefulness.

Pico is the name of a fairly new CMS, which doesn’t need any database connection at all. Its developer Gilbert Pellegrom calls the system "stupidly simple". I’d object and say, that this is only true for developers. If you are a PHP aficionado and like to write your posts using Markdown, Pico might just be the CMS for you.

Marvel: Free Website Prototyping Tool for Photoshop-Dropboxers

If you are anything like me, you fire up your Photoshop to create a first visual prototype of your next client’s website. And if you’re anything like me, you’re not bound to change that in the foreseeable future. All the clients I had over the last 20 years wanted to see a visual prototype before coding started. If you could create a clickable one, the better. A fresh web app named Marvel enters the stage with the promise to achieve just that. Are you a user of Photoshop, Fireworks, Gimp or any other pixel-editor and do you rely on Dropbox? Great, still, if you don’t design websites, you need not read further ;-)
