Offloading PSDs and other digital art for a price is an art in itself. There are so many different ways to distribute your unique creations that things can get crowded. Stock digital art is a popular thing on the Internet and there are many who would pay for a unique, well-designed item. I’ve personally been a supporter of Envato’s own GraphicRiver or AudioJungle for the delivery of said items, but there are more apt solutions than these — you just have to look for them.
And that’s where Folio makes its grand entrance. If you want a quick way to upload your art, whether it’s a user interface for an iPhone app, vectors, or even audio, this could just be the best tool for the job. Unfortunately, it’s invite-only right now and they took a good month to send me one. That’s not to say you shouldn’t try it though; I’ll take a deeper look after the break. (more…)
I’m something of a neat freak when it comes to keeping my computer organized. When I use a friend’s computer and find the desktop littered with old, poorly named files like “WordDoc1,” I start to feel nauseous and begin rethinking our friendship. Consequently, I love to see new utilities for the Mac that help me keep things in order on my laptop.
OS X has never been great when it comes to moving files around. It prefers to just copy a file when you drag it rather than move it completely. Furthermore, having a bunch of windows open can make navigating to your destination difficult when you’re dragging something and you have your mouse button pressed down. DragonDrop is an app that saves people like myself who are frequently moving files around the headache of dealing with these problems.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting SpiderOak. The developer describes SpiderOak as providing an easy, secure and consolidated free cross-plaform online backup, sync, sharing, access & storage solution for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (Ubuntu, Debian & Fedora). You can manage your shared files from anywhere securely with our iPhone application, and keep all your devices backed up, accessible and synchronised.

Isn’t it annoying when you import photos from your camera and they are all labelled some variation of ‘P1163954.jpg’. With Renamer, you can quickly and easily batch rename all your photos to ‘Car1.jpg’, etc, or even change the file extension. Renamer doesn’t stop there, it has the power to batch rename any type of file. Through a series of Automator like actions, your files can be renamed in a matter of seconds!
Renamer is developed by the team over at creativebe – who have also brought you some other fantastic apps such as iArchiver. The application doesn’t contain any unnecessary ‘frills’ and is excellent at what it does.
