Balsamiq Mockups – 製作Prototype超Easy

Sep39

最近正在忙著為新產品和一些projects製作prototype(介面設計草圖), 我平時都慣用photoshop / powerpoint / 手繪 製作介面設計草圖的, 用ps 比較美觀, 但如果要修改時就PK了…..

最近發現了一個好用的小工具-Balsamiq MockupsBalsamiq Mockups是一個基於Adobe AIR的網頁草圖繪製軟體,提供大量常用的 模板(導航條,日曆,表格,到複雜的Tag Cloud,Cover Flow, 地圖,WYSWYG的格式工具欄等等, 到網上還有更多template download 的), 很方便便可加到草圖中, 還有 iphone 介面呢 ^O^。

立即先下載來試用 , 要先 install adobe air , 然後打開來就可以開始使用了…

一開始使用, 介面很易用, 用 mac 和pc 都沒問題, 但注意如果要打中文字的話, 要先在 “view” 設定” use system fonts”呀~

草圖很快便完成了,比以前快了3 分1, 但按 save 時 發覺是試用版,沒輸入序號前,不能存檔。還有每五分鐘一次跳出視窗的提醒……好用的工具, 當然會比錢買啦 (雖然是在公司用多….)  但最後看到價格,79美元,太貴了喇, 好窮買不起……。

p.s. 如果沒有買完整版, 可以使用xml語言來記錄和保存界面元素和佈局的~

不過 Balsamiq Mockups 很大方的提供了許多支援方案,讓你有機會免費取得合法序號,。假如你符合下面的身份或是意圖,就有機會取得免費合法的版權:

1. 非營利組織
2. 願意在部落格或是網站推薦這個軟體的人 (不知我會不會得到免費版呢>u<)
3. 有機會在超過15人的聚會場合介紹這個軟體
4. 高中老師

所以, 有了此 post 出現喇~

Evernote – Notebook Sharing and Collaboration

EVERNOTE 一向是我mac和pc的“MUST APP”, 用來整理工作上和學習上的筆記。昨天發現了在web版evernote中新加了期待已久的分享notebook功能,現在可以方便在evernote中分享及共同編輯 notebook了,真方便呢!

evernote 不再是“the anti-social app”了,哈哈。

我的share notebook:

Graphic design 教學收集 :link

Webdesign:CSS,AJAX學習筆記 : link

WordPress 學習筆記 : link

Illustration inspiration : link

可按加上方“Link to my Account”button 把notes 加到你的evernote中。

[pro-player width=’560′ height=’353′ type=’FLV’]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtPCyV62zRM[/pro-player]

How it works

In your Evernote Web account, you will see a new, blue Sharing section in the navigation panel. Click on “sharing setup” to begin the process of sharing your notebooks. Select the notebook you wish to share, then decide whether to share that notebook with individuals or the world.

There are two additional options under the “Share with individuals” category:

  • Share with individuals (view only)
  • Share with individuals (view and modify) – Evernote Premium feature

For added security, you can require log in, which means that the unique link in the email your invitees receive can only be used by a single person and they’ll be asked to log in before seeing your notes.

Modify my notes (Evernote Premium only)

While all users get the ability to share their notebooks, Evernote Premium subscribers can also grant modification privileges: add, edit, and delete notes. You don’t need to be Premium in order to perform the modification, but you must be Premium in order to allow for modification of your notebooks. It’s important to note that any additions will affect the notebook owner’s monthly upload allowance. Learn more about Evernote Premium »

Linking notebooks into your account

notelinking
We also made it really simple to keep track of any notebooks that have been shared with you. Whenever you visit someone’s shared notebook, you will see a “Link this to my account” button in the top right corner. Clicking that will add the notebook to your Evernote Web sharing section so you can jump back to the notebook any time you like. Try it now by linking this aspiring super villain’s notebook into your account.

New look

For those of you that published your notebooks in the past, you will see a new interface. The new look is closer to our standard web layout, and is much easier to scan and navigate. We also wanted to make sure that individuals unfamiliar with Evernote would get a consistent web experience throughout the application.

If this is Phase 1, what’s Phase 2?

You (our wonderful users) have been clamoring for selective sharing for some time. So, we decided to make it available in phases as we build out the functionality. Right now, most notebook sharing functions are only available through Evernote Web. Soon, you will be able to share right from your desktop or mobile Evernote. Like with everything else we do, sharing will be everywhere. Our developer API has already been updated to support the new sharing features, and we can’t wait to see what you all come up with.

If you want to join us on the first step of this ambitious journey, you can do three simple things: (1) Make some notebooks that you want to share, (2) invite your friends, (3) tell us how to make Evernote better.

Read Magazine using your iPhone

p1

其實平時時常都會買雜誌看,但如果有時外出時,用IPHONE看會比拿著書本看較輕便些。
其實iphone除了可用來看漫畫外, 亦可用來看雜誌的呀。

1:先到APPLESTORE 下載看漫畫的軟件 :
ComicZeal
(USD$1.99)我覺得COMICZEAL的介面很精美的,有書本分類, 在看的書會有書籤標誌, 讀完的書還會用袋封好啊, 推介一下!

2: 之後可到一些網站和FORUM 下載一些雜誌,網上找”雜誌下載”就能找到很多 :

  • 日本流行雜誌如MINI, NONNO : http://kozumifan.livejournal.com/43225.html
  • 日本流行雜誌 http://www.shishangzazhi.com/mag
  • UWANTS  EBOOK區: http://www.uwants.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=177

3:下載雜誌後, 先安裝COMICZEAL的轉檔和同步工具 ,

4:然後把圖像檔案轉成一個CBR/RAR/ZIP FILE(COMICZEAL支援cbr,cbz,rar and zip files亦可轉PDF檔案 )

5:把FILE Drop 到 ComicZeal Sync window.然後在IPHONE COMICZEAL按同步鍵就完成了。

-轉檔工具ComicZeal Creator, 可把FILE轉成CBR/CBZ檔  : Download

4 Cool Visual bookmarking site

我是一個graphic designer, 平時都要收集很多圖片的參考資料。
而且平時在網上看到一些漂亮的圖片/相片都會收藏起來(其實本身就是個收藏狂喇)
但是圖片越儲越多, 而且有用幾部電腦, 管理起來很不方便。
之後在網上發現原來有一些web2.0的圖片 bookmark 工具, 像 delicious 書籤一樣, 可以輕易幫你 bookmark 心愛的圖片, 而且有tag工能, 分類更加方便。還可以和網友分享你的bookmark呢!

介紹4個網上的圖片收集工具:

vi.sualize.us

vi.sualize.us是我第一個使用的images bookmark 工具, 介面簡潔,操作十分簡單,很易上手。只要安裝 firefox plugin 或用Bookmarklet, 就能輕鬆bookmark圖片。而且支持 rss訂閱。

20090221211403567

http://vi.sualize.us/css/images/buttonSshot.png

weheartit

weheartit 功能和vi.sualize.us 差不多, 但比vi.sualize.us簡單,可bookmark youtube 和vimeo影片, 是我最常用的 image bookmark工具。
只有Bookmarklet工具, 支援一次bookmark多張圖片, 操作快捷方便, 而且站內圖片庫很豐富呢!

20090221214303051
20090221213755598

imgspark

a creative tool that helps you collect, discover, share, tag and converge images that inspire you and your work.
imgspark 是最近發現的圖片bookmark工具, 介面超精美, 有2個view mode, 支持 mac, firefox 和 有photo upload tools, 有1Gb存放空間, 但不足的是沒有rss訂閱。

20090221215204317

20090221215223489

ffffound

ffffuund是一個你一進去就不用想走出來的圖片庫, 內有超高品質的圖片, 包你可以看足一天。但不公開申請。我都沒拿到account呢, 有朋友可推薦一上我, 哈哈。

今天在網上閒逛時發現flickr又有新玩意 >>
flappr是一個用Flash做的Flickr Viewer, 用來搜尋、瀏覽 Flickr相片的RIA,如果看到不錯的照片還可以加到你的Flickr Favorites裡面。整個瀏覽歷程是從一個搜尋框開始的,你可以輸入一個或多個tag或user名稱來搜尋照片,搜尋結果可以依照有趣程度或從新到舊排序。如果不知道從何下手,還可以點開始畫面的各國國旗,從某個地區開始。接下來會看到搜尋結果,點選想看的照片縮圖,接下來就會彈出大張的圖片和上傳的人是誰。典選Photographer的照片可以看到個人的詳細資料和他的相簿,把滑鼠移到下方的箭頭上,就會列出這個人最常用的tag(可惜無法顯示中文)。另外點選在Photographer左方的兩個按鈕,可以看到之前看過的照片或搜尋的關鍵字。整體而言,flappr在搜尋照片的時候還滿實用的,但是如果要拿來看單一相簿裡面的所有圖片就不是那麼方便了,因為flappr缺乏了slide show和看上一張、下一張照片的功能。
