    Red face Designers Toolbox widget for Mac users

    Hey guys,

    One of the most useful widgets for graphic designers out there:



    http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/calculate_convert/designerstoolbox.html

    Has a mm to pixels to dpi converter
    All major paper's dimensions
    Weight, number of pages and calculate dimensions of printed matter - to enter any of four values is calculated in the fifth
    Convert units (mm, inches, picas Pt, PS Pt, Pt Didot)
    Up-/Downloadtime calculator based on file size
    Dummy text word or paragraph in German, English or generate Lorem Ipsum Latin
    HTML Entity View
    px to em , and vice versa Convert


    Overall it's a pretty useful widget that every designer should know about.

    Toolbox Widgets

    Haven't used Widgets in a while, but this little widget works good.

    It will come in handy.

    Red face

    Wow... thank you!!

    If you want a 3rd party soft, like these - which can be of aid (but paid of course) - try xScope.. it isnt a widget like these, but a serious tool for designers..
