Duplicate, Offset, Rotate

26 July 2003

For the more arty amongst you, in particular those who use Fireworks as their graphical weapon of choice, my good friend Nathan Pitman has released a Fireworks extension with the catchy title of Duplicate, Offset & Rotate. It does all sorts of marvelous things to do with duplicating, offsetting a rotating things that anyone of a graphical persuasion will find immensely satisfying. (I tried it and made a mess, but I’m a dirty hack – you’ll love it). Priced extremely reasonably at £4.95 (that’s about seven and a half of your crinkled green notes), it’s worth a few moments of your attention.

  1. § Nathan Pitman: A very resonable price indeed. Thanks for the plug Drew! :)

About Drew McLellan

Drew McLellan (@drewm) has been hacking on the web since around 1996 following an unfortunate incident with a margarine tub. Since then he’s spread himself between both front- and back-end development projects, and now is Director and Senior Web Developer at in Maidenhead, UK (GEO: 51.5217, -0.7177). Prior to this, Drew was a Web Developer for Yahoo!, and before that primarily worked as a technical lead within design and branding agencies for clients such as Nissan, Goodyear Dunlop, Siemens/Bosch, Cadburys, ICI Dulux and Somewhere along the way, Drew managed to get himself embroiled with Dreamweaver and was made an early Macromedia Evangelist for that product. This lead to book deals, public appearances, fame, glory, and his eventual downfall.

Picking himself up again, Drew is now a strong advocate for best practises, and stood as Group Lead for The Web Standards Project 2006-08. He has had articles published by A List Apart, Adobe, and O’Reilly Media’s, mostly due to mistaken identity. Drew is a proponent of the lower-case semantic web, and is currently expending energies in the direction of the microformats movement, with particular interests in making parsers an off-the-shelf commodity and developing simple UI conventions. He writes here at all in the head and, with a little help from his friends, at 24 ways.
