If you have experience in developing sites with a little bit complex user interaction there is a great possibility that you'll use some color picker, especially if the site has some colour-choosing functionality. And that point you know how long can be inventing and creating a new color picker especially if you don't know too much about colours and PHP or JavaSciprt functions that work with colours. The next dilemma is about choosing one of the many free colour pickers that will resolve your problem the best.

The IMGr jQuery Plugin used for Landing page with Rounded Images
IMGr stands for Image Rounder and it's a jQuery plugin and this tutorial I used it to create a nice looking and unique landing page. For the developers it very easy to create something that will be still and never be changed so the real troubles and headaches are coming when something twisted have to be editable from some CMS. This example can be easily modified to your CMS and these rounded images can be replaced from there; no need for photoshop editing of the images and creating PNG images that will be transparent because the images are normal rectangle .JPG images.

Using jQuery Plug-ins for better web forms (In-Field Labels)
In the process of creating a user friendly web form, the first thing that comes to the developer's mind is to describe the kind of data that the user needs to input properly. Sometimes a simple label can do the trick, you put “Username” label in front of a text input field named username and all is done.
Problem occurs when, for an example, you want to tell to the user more info about the data that you want to be inserted in, so the label becomes longer. Eg. “Insert your first pet name”. The form labels have different length and the form looks messy.
One solution can be to top place the labels over the input fields but if we want to make it more stylish we can use the In-Field jQuery plug-in for that.

Create nice-looking heading via
Google Font API
When I wrote the last blog post I thought that was the last connected with typography, but I think that this is the ultimate solution for web designers who want to use different fonts instead the standard without using any techniques mentioned in the previous posts. I think that typography is very important part of the web design, so this will be dedicated to it too.
First we include the style-sheet file direct from the Google API site with the specifying the font family that we want to use. This project is in beta version and there are 25 fonts so far.
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine"
