Balsamiq Mockups – 製作Prototype超Easy


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。

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

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.


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。
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!



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。




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!



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。




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。

Twitter: What are you doing?

其實我是個超不愛寫文章, 不懂表達自己想法打字很慢的人, 寫blog對我來說是超難超辛酸的


twitter是一個很可愛的工具, 只可打140個字(65中文字), 岩晒中文程度低能的人用

平時得閒無事post一兩句上去, 可以告訴朋友自己還生存著呢

其實都可用MSN的狀態工能, 但msn的狀態通常換掉就不見了, 不能save超不方便的

其實twit給我的第一印象是 – 其實沒有甚麼特別啊, why呢排咁鬼紅o架,個個blog都介紹它,費解.

但在申請用了一會后, 終於明白最簡單的就是最實用的

由今天開始大家一起儲存自己的碎碎念吧 :)

用twitter的朋友可以 add我呀, 我現在在twit沒什麼 friends :)
