Black is the most amazing hue used in fashion today. It is by far the most highly demanded, and not just in the big cities. More than any other hue, most consumers are emotionally attached to it because of associations with personality and style. Punk or classic, high-brow or low, a good color or bad to the bone, it’s always good.
I don’t know about you, but my Adobe apps get a little wonky from time to time, where things stop working the way they should. Deleting the Settings file is a simple way to reset the programs and will often times fix the problems you are having.
Spring of 2017 is blessed with clear and strong colors. Every spring intense colors appear, but this year it’s fresher than ever. Not the riot of patterns that reigned a couple of years ago, and more than the intense color blocking of last spring, color has grown up into a more mature, sophisticated and less predictable combination of hue and pattern use. If you are new at the color game, there are rules you can use to keep yourself on track.
One of my favorite online services to use for converting or compressing PDF’s is smallpdf.com. This super easy and FREE online service allows you to upload your pdf’s and it will magically (yes I said magically) spit out high quality, teeny tiny compressed PDF’s that you can download.
I have tried many methods on my own, including: adjusting PDF settings, the Reduce file size option and even converting postscript files in Distiller, but nothing comes close to what smallpdf.com can do.
The free service allows you to upload and compress 2 PDF’s per hour, but if you need to do more, for just $6/mo ($4/mo annual) they offer a Premium service that lets you upload and convert as many files as you like.
Add to that the ability to convert PDF’s to Excel, PPT, or word, Merge PDF’s and even unlock PDF’s and you have yourself a realllllly useful service!
Ah, fall! The heat is gone, and the subways are finally human-friendly. To me, that means one thing: Time to wear clothing again! And just in time for “See Now-Buy Now” Fall 2016-17 and NY Fashion Week’s SS2017 RTW.
