Starting as a research project in 1994, Opera has been responsible for some world changing innovations (think tabbed browsing) and yet never seemed to achieve the kind of success it deserved. But this isn’t a history lesson, it’s an article on a few of the killer features of Opera that keep me using it each day. I use Firefox and Flock pretty frequently as well, but Opera, as of version 9.5 has become my favourite.

The Edit Web Site bookmarklet turns all of the content of any web site into a editable text. Using it is simple: Just drag the Edit Web Site bookmarklet into your browser's bookmark toolbar, and then click it on any web site you feel like editing. Obviously the changes are purely local, but it's a good way to tweak the day's events exactly to your liking, have a little fun with co-workers, or test out a web site. If you want to give it a quick try, just click the link above to edit this post. [via lifehacker]

Having multiple workspaces is definitely a benefit to the multi tasking professional. Moving quickly between the desktops also adds a touch of speed to your daily work. Installing a virtual desktop to your windows is very responsive and efficient, and you have the ultimate work environment. If you think you need more space try the following..




1.Install 360 desktop
360desktop transforms your desktop into a panoramic workspace - with more space for everything. Slide around your new workspace quickly and easily between all your open applications, windows and widgets - it'll spin you out. More info>>
Download 360 Desktop>>

2.Install Virtual Desktop Manager
My personal favourite VDM is the DeskSpace which I have been using for quite sometime. If you want a free one, try Dexpot or VirtualWin. But remember that the VirtualWin has no visual menu for quick desktop switching like in the case of Dexpot, only shortcuts. It’s also a bit overwhelming and takes some time to get used to.

Who said you can’t Photoshop? Try my tutorial on how to create a Stunning 3D floral patterned text effect in less than 15 minutes. It’s easy and simple.

 
Ingredients:
Photoshop CS2 or later
3D text rendering software.
1600×1200px blank canvas

Step 1: First, Pickup the Gradient tool(G) , choose Radial Gradient and fill the background of the canvas with desired colors. For me, I chose White as foreground and Bright Green as background Color.


Step 2: We’ll need something written in 3D. We have two possible variations: You can either use the “Extrude and Bevel” in illustrator or Xara3D to create the 3D text.



Step 3: Copy the 3D text to PS and rename layer as “3D Text”. Then, rotate, adjust the letters to your desire and balance the color. 



Step 4: With me so far? Now make a new layer “floral” above the 3d text, and using any floral brush set, paint on that layer. 


Step 5: Now add fx(Style[Inner Shadow], Blend Mode[normal], Opacity[100], Angel[90], UseGlobalLight[yes], Distance[2], Choke[5], Size[1]); to the “floral layer”.




Step 6: Next, using Magic wand tool, select the outer layer of the 3D text layer and delete the selection after choosing the floral layer.




 
Step 7: Now add extra effects to splendor your work. These effects aren't needed, but they provide nice details to the final product. Now that we have the basic 3D floral text effect, we can add more effects to give it a reflection, and an environment.
