Public Domain Archive: High-Res Photos for Free

The market of free photo providers is growing fast. After a decade of market domination, giant services like Shutterstock and others see themselves faced with a competition that will likely change the whole way this industry is structured.

It is still tiny in comparison, but already worth a visit or two.

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.

Game of WordPress: Set Your Eyes on Fire by Watching a 40 Hours Experts Show

I admit it. I can`t get enough of the “Game of Thrones” show, and as a late discoverer I had the joy to watch an entire season almost in one go. I couldn`t stop watching the epic wrestling for the iron throne and I pressed the stop button much later than it was healthy for my eyes and energy level at the next weekday’s morning. I learned something about dragons and deadly weapons, but this sadly didn`t help me when I straight ran into a problem with our WordPress installation, which cost me another two grey hairs. To avoid this I should possibly have watched an entirely different show…
