An excellent set. I got a lot of insight from Mr MacLeod, a document that spoke to me more than most.

I don't usually visit this forum, but I just directed a new Photoshop user to a PDT article, and took the time to read the content myself.  As a consequence, I found the free books, the first of which was Pixel Perfect Design, and pure gold.  Man many years ago I had a library book taught me the basics of proper use of layout, fonts and white space etc.  and PP3 is a modern day version, and an excellent resource.  It5 breaks your heart to see cluttered, badly laid out pages, and it is super useful having a resource to point people to, that shows them the way.

Sorry, it looks like that book was removed from its previous location...

Just updated the first post above with a new location, where you should be able to find it again.

Thanks for the heads up!
