Homework Week 3

Posted in IMD Fundamentals on August 5, 2011 by clintonherring
This week we had to go out and find three RSS feeds and provide a link for them here is a list of RSS feeds I subscribed to:
(Don’t try and click on the URL it will not work; copy and paste the URL into your “add subscription” search engine to find the link)
MediaCollege.com
http://feeds.mediacollege.com/mc-blog%20-%200.0%20posts%20per%20week
Media College.com has quiet of good info on a lot of things going on in the technology world. Now what I didn’t like was I did a search for HTML Tutorial and this had nothing to do with HTML at first until you scrolled about 2/3 of the way down (and that was a lot) until you came across some information about programming.Adobe Flash Tutorials – Best of – Smashing Magazine
http://rss1.smashingmagazine.com/feed/%20-%204.9%20posts%20per%20week
Adobe Flash Tutorials – Best of – Smashing Magazine was a great read on tips and tricks that any web-designer or graphic designer could use on a day to day basis. They also had links to New Free High Quality Fonts and if you ever needed a particular fonts and didn’t have it you know how expensive they can be so check out this RSS feed. I really like this feed a lot; I can see myself actually reading this weekly if not daily.

Adobe Photoshop Tutorials – Tutorialized
http://www.tutorialized.com/rss-feed-s-1.xml%20-%2056.2%20posts%20per%20week
Adobe Photoshop Tutorials – Tutorialized is an amazing feed that I highly recommend to everyone. This feed shows you all kinds of tricks that Adobe Photoshop has to offer. People who have been using photoshop for about 10 years still haven’t used photoshop to it’s full potential; so check out this feed and start learning from the masters it’ll only help your career. I like this feed because it had a lot of helpful ideas and it gives you step by step instructions so you shouldn’t screw it up.

MMO-Champion Blue Tracker
http://blue.mmo-champion.com/rss/?language=en%20-%20100.6%20posts%20per%20week
MMO-Champion Blue Tracker because I look at the site MMO-Champion.com religiously because it is mainly geared towards World of Warcraft (WoW), and I play WoW with my brother since 2006 because we were in different states and it was something we could do together. I wasn’t able to click the link it seems to be broken but if you are using gmail reader then you can do a search on MMO-Champion Blue Tracker and find it that way; this is something that I did not like having to do.

Curse
http://www.curse.com/forums/aggregaterss.aspx?Mode=0
Curse is an addon website that allows you to download “addons” for WoW. These addons are used to interact with the User Interface with WoW to make your gaming experience a lot easier and allow more customization. I liked this site because when you clicked on the RSS Feed it gave you step by step instructions and also gave a link to Wikipedia on what RSS feeds were.

WoW Head News
http://www.wowheadnews.com/blog&rss%20-%206.5%20posts%20per%20week
WoW Head News is another site that I use constantly. WoW Head News is kinda like MMO-Champion but it also has a huge collection of data on everything about the game and more that any WoW player should have bookmarked no matter their skill or length of play time. This site seems to have the same error that the MMO-Champion Blue Tracker is having but again you can do a search for it very easily.

Some tutorials I would like to tell you about are:

How to create Navigation bar in Photoshop this is a step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to do everything.  I like this turtorial because it is so detailed that any novice graphic designer or web designer will have no problem creating.  Also you can make it your own by just tweaking a few of the ideas and steps it gives you.

How To Create 3D Text Effect In Photoshop is another step-by-step tutorial that shows you something that is hot at the moment in this industry and that’s 3D graphics, but this is text.  This is a very easy and quick process it doesn’t look to difficult and your text comes out looking sharp and 3D.

Change your text into magic glowing sparkles is actually a really cool tutorial on using jitter, gradiants, and much more.  This is really cool and I think it will come in handy if you get into entertainment industry or even music industry.
