How to Prepare for the Black Friday Shopping Frenzy

Whatever you’ve done to research and prepare for Black Friday, you should put a plan in place to handle the sheer craziness you will encounter on the big day. Here are the most important things you need to do to be prepared:


  • Make a Wish List:  You can’t be a casual shopper on Black Friday. Draw up a list of all the things you want and devise a plan to get them. This applies whether you’re visiting any actual stores or just shopping online.


  • Research Your Favourite Retailers:  Sign up to newsletters, check your favourite websites every day and keep track of all pending Black Friday deals as they come up.


  • Download the App:  The best way to keep up with Black Friday deals is to download the apps released by all your favourite retailers. They often use these to tell customers about deals and, sometimes, even offer you ways to reserve your items early.


  • Plan Your Day:  Don’t shop alone! It’s best to get your family and friends involved and devise clever ways to split up the day’s shopping or to hold each other’s places in the various queues.


  • Budget:  There is so much on offer, and you want it all! But, you need to be realistic and set a budget - and stick to it.


  • Set an Alarm Clock: Online stores start trading at midnight. If you’re going to the mall, you’re going to need to get there early to get a decent place in the queue. Whatever your game plan may be, set an alarm clock so that you can get going in time.

In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

Tip 8: Choosing the right internet acecss for your lifestyle

Choosing the right internet access for your lifestyle

With so many ISPs out there these days, it's difficult to decide what type of access you need and which product will be cost effective and best suit your needs.
In the by-gone days of dial up our internet usage was measured by the amount of time we spent connected, and we all quickly got into the habit of plugging in the modem, quickly connecting, checking our mail doing what little surfing we needed and then before we ran up a huge bill, disconnected and unplugged the modem again - just to make sure.

Now days with the advent of broadband, we're no longer charged by the amount of time we spend online, but instead by the amount of data that we use up. while it's true that the longer you're connected the more likely you are to use more data, most people find it convenient and not too expensive to be connected all the time.

Being connected all the time does however come with some dangers. the chances of picking up unwa…
