Favorites from the Feeds is a Six Revisions series that highlights notable design and development articles, tutorials, tools, and downloadable resources from my RSS feeds. In this installment, you’ll see some of my favorite Photoshop tutorials from last week, a great article on Opera’s site on grid design, and the other stuff you normally see on FFF.

Nice roundup of stuff there. One thing that does bug me though – why don’t you use / tags in your posts? :S

Thanks for the video on Kevin Rose…theres not too many people I look up to (the glorification of celebrities drives me nuts), but Kevin Rose is someone I certainly listen to when he speaks. That was an incredibly awesome video, helped me a lot.

Great list, I like “How to Code a Clean Portfolio Design (Plus Free 5-Page Template)”. Thanks.

@Simon Willans: I just never found the value of keyword tagging posts since Six Revisions has such a niche topic (making websites). I’ll look into it though.

@Brandon: I enjoyed Kevin Rose’s talk too – most of his points in the one above were intuitive, yet reassuring.

I usually browse through round ups like this in about 15 seconds then move on.

But I believe I will be here a while checking out most of these links.

Bravo job, I hope you made my web development life easier instead of creating more work for me…

Fantastic roundup of Resources, I could spend hours on all the links.

@Goran Giertz: That’s my goal! :) Notice that I post these over the weekend for weekend readers – which is when I do a lot of my reading (online and offline).

@Jacob: Brilliant idea as we can really spend time getting stuck in, not worrying about time, clients and all that stuff.
