Everyone wants to include stunning graphics and eye-catching photographs to enhance the look of their website, but with high-resolution images often come much higher load times. Even if you are using a CDN, a weak connection on the user side can cause unwanted delays for the delivery of graphics and other files. If you’re still intent on serving large images in your project, but want to keep the user engaged, looping preloaders are the answer. This set of minimal loop preloaders by MarinaD will complement simple, flat designs and offer a variety of different preloaders to best fit the aesthetics of your design.  The set features .AI, .EPS, .PSD and of course .GIF.

Implementing the colors from an image into a design project is a surefire to have the colors complement one another.  With the emergence of HTML5, grabbing specific colors from an image has never been easier, or quicker. Browsers can complete these simple tasks that were previously reserved for image processing software. The Get Colors From Image tool by HTML-Color-Codes enables designers to select individual colors from an image without ever having to upload the file to a web-server. The multiple windows display the original image, the targeted area of the image as well as the specific color and corresponding hexadecimal code.

Converting colors from their hexadecimal values to their RGB counterpart is a common task that any busy designer would like to streamline in their workflow.  While there are a million ways to complete the process, the Hex To RGB Converter from the team at by Jamie Brittain performs this task with simplicity and style. The clean and minimalistic layout is a welcome departure from the free tools that are littered with ads and other extraneous content. Once a color is entered into either the RGB or Hex field, the browser window adjusts to the entered color, and its hexadecimal or RGB value is displayed. (If you add RGB code like this: rgb(0,001,123) it will convert to hex code.)

The tool allows designers to copy all of the CSS into one window and output a fully prefixed version of the CSS including comments.   Prefix My CSS also includes options to control the spacing between the different CSS properties and the line spacing of the entire document for readability.

Adjusting the layout and design of a webpage can take up a serious amount of time due to the constant need to save, test and debug the appropriate code. CSS Terminal by Ben Barber is a browser bookmarklet that can input CSS rules directly into any current webpage, allowing a designer to get a live view of how changes or updates to the current CSS rules will affect the finished project.  Once active in your browser, the CSS Terminal window will appear and apply any of the entered CSS rules immediately to the webpage as they are entered.  The terminal window can be collapsed via the “ESC” or “Tab” key for a full view of the edited page.
