Have you had an experience where clients, friends or family think you have a magic wand you wave at the computer to create and/or troubleshoot an issue?
Sometimes it can be overwhelming but I'd like to take it as a compliment because all that means is that your good at what you do and the more experience you have the more you have to offer. Yes, we as designers do love what we do but the more clients and services one has the more files, software, folders, subfolders and cloud copies, the more time consuming it can be.

That being said it's important to stay organized so that:
a. Your computer won't crash
b. You won't feel like your in finding files through a black hole
c. For proper site load: having large image files on a site is like have dial-up
d. Files are easily searchable

You may find files that are old, lost, duplicate, spelled wrong and/or has no meta data. Here is some trick of the trade techniques to help with such scenarios using Automator. Stay tuned on how to create this action script for Mac users.

If you don't have SnapChat and want to use some of their nifty features I found a cool app called LoopVid. LoopVid is similar to Boomerang but with more features. You can loop your short video over and over again for up to 9 seconds of video length.

The only annoying thing is that you can't remove the video game ads even if you pay extra. Then when it allows you to close it, the ad presents the tiniest close button "x" to hit so that when you miss it takes you to the app store.

Here's a short clip taken at Rihanna Puma line opening in New York. Check it out.

Hold Your Horses Ya'll for I found a loop hole to ad text to your Facebook marketing ad boosts!

If you manage a social media account then you know before you promote/boost your ad you have to run through the Image Text Overlay to determine how much text is on your ad. This can be frustrating when your re-trimming coy, re-designing it's layout, re-saving, re-uploading and a round the circle we go. I find this mind boggling that they only allow you to maybe add 10 characters and even that it will say that it's too much and it will only go out to certain amount of people.

So what do I do...find the loop hole. My first of many attempts was to create my text on any adobe suite program, outline as a vector and save out into every format file, then adding it into another design so that it may read a picture instead of text. FAIL

Then I remembered a certain app I used that creates pretty design elements with your text, WordSwag. Viola! It worked. Here's an example to show you the difference. Hope this helps.
