Web & Application Graphics for Programmers and other non-artists.

There is a relatively short list of fairly simple tricks and rules to making sure Photoshop or The Gimp don't beat you up too badly when you're trying to apply graphics to your site, app, or interface. There is a relatively short and simple list of design rules to follow to make sure your site, app, or interface doesn't cause your end users to cry "My eyes! The goggles do nothing!" With these basic rules, tips, and pointers under your belt, you can quickly provide the basic graphics your project needs, and get back to what you love best. While the results may not look like you paid a second mortgage to a high-powered design firm, or a hot new artist who uses unpronounceable shapes and symbols to spell his name, it will be clear, clean, pleasant, and not look like it was a summer school project from the Warhol Camp for the Design Disabled. Should cover text effects, visual effects, font theory & resources, display size, taking viewer statistics into account, basic color theory, cross platform compatibility, bandwidth, layers, file formats, software tools, stock, copyright, and web resources. Attendees should be able to benefit whether they bring a lappy with Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Photopaint, or the Gimp or just take notes / the handout.
