- TutorialMagazine.com – Photoshop Pen Tool: The Comprehensive Guide –
Man, this article reminded me how much I miss Photoshop. I need to fix my computer.
Sometimes, those Photoshop filters really do feel like superheroes to me.
What’s your favourite tool? And if it was a superhero, what would it’s power be?
I love WIRED magazine. It has excellent features; interesting contributors; an unpatronising writing style; awesome graphic design; unannoying ads; even the paper it’s printed on is good quality. WIRED is, to many, an opinion leading and culturally significant title both on and offline.
It’s future facing attitude really suits my own, so I’ve been reading it regularly for years. Now the UK title is in print, I buy both that and the US version. Ubergeek, aren’t I?
One of my favourite features was always the back page, the ‘Found’ section, which featured potential realities of our future daily lives.
Sadly no longer supported by the magazine, ‘Found’ lives on as an online Photoshop contest, where readers can submit their own images on subjects such as chewing gum and rehab.
I wanted to find the original images though, and I’ve managed to source the earliest online record (Jan ‘04) up to the last published image (Jul ‘08).
So here they are, in reverse chronological order. They are packed with all sorts of detail and easter eggs, so click on them to see the full images:
