Christmas gifts for designers | Practical Photoshop
If you’re anything like us, you’ll be doing your best to avoid the holiday season. Still, in a bid to get into the festive spirit, we’ve compiled this Practical Photoshop Christmas guide featuring 8 of the most interesting Photoshop-related novelty gifts to buy for your favourite designer.
1. Photoshop Fridge Magnets
Give the pictures on your fridge a new lease of life with these cool fridge magnets. This set of 11 magnets includes all your favourite interface elements, including the tools, brush selection and layers palettes. Made for proper Photoshop geeks like us.
2. Type Trumps
Each card features a different font – from Times and Helvetica to Frankfurter and Johnston Underground – and includes stats such as year of design and the amount of weights, so you can fight it out with another player, Top Trumps style.
3. Camera Dial Laptop Decal
Want to say ‘I’m a photographer!’ while working up a PSD? Then check out this vinyl sticker for your MacBook or PC laptop. It leaves ‘no sticky residue’, so it can be easily applied or removed from your expensive kit. It also comes in Canon or Nikon flavours, too.
4. Camera USB Drive
Need a 4GB USB stick, but finding current offerings a little too bland for your desk? Transfer your photos and files in style with this detailed DSLR replica, where the lens even detaches from the camera body. Could me a memorable way to send your work to clients.
5. Photoshop T-shirt
CafePress offers ‘the world’s largest selection of artist-designed T-shirts’, so it’s no surprise to find a few Adobe-inspired designs floating around its vast catalogue. Our favourite at the moment has to be this subtle little number…
6. Dog T-shirt
Also from the CafePress collection comes this fetching Adobe CS-inspired slice of pet apparel. Take your mind off the smell of your mutt by dressing it up like a designer baby. D’you know, we’ve got a feeling the image illustrating might have seen a bit of Photoshop as well.
7. Mus2 Mouse
It’s an optical two-button mouse that looks like a cursor – and it comes in white or black. The Mus2 mouse is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X and is powered by two AAA batteries (there’s a battery power indicator in the handle so you can gauge the amount of juice remaining).
8. My Documents Laptop Sleeve
Now this is tempting. ThinkGeek’s offering this bold, neoprene laptop sleeve styled like a computer’s ‘My Documents’ folder. It fits notebooks up to 15.4″ in size and comes complete with a ‘pixilated’ mouse pointer pin. They ship to the UK as well.
