Photoshop tip needed - automated cropping multiple images

Hi folks -

I have about 30 screen shots that I need to crop at exactly the same x,y
location and with exactly the same dimensions. Actions in CS4 is failing
(not passing x,y origin but passing dimensions - UGH). Any tips on how to do
this another way?

Thanks,
Lisa

List ordering: alphabetical vs. logical?

Does anyone know of any studies, tests, or standards of practice that
discuss when to organize a list of items in alphabetical order vs.
another designed order (such as one based on expected frequency of
use)?

I'm most interested in this topic for web site navigation, but
applicable references for other contexts (e.g. menu design in desktop
applications) would also be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dmitry

the UX Canon

Will and Dave have done a fantastic job of assembling a really high impact
group of books. By that I meant, they did not throw every book in the lot...
but assembled a manageable list of really high impact readings... certainly
the core of what is needed.

But I think it is also time to add a another category.

Top Ten IxD examples? What it takes

This thread is already interesting.

Michael Tuminello wrote:
"...The big one that leaps to mind would be the iPod/iTunes music store
combo..."

It would be interesting to know the size (and profile) of the team that
would typically work on such a project i.e. the iTunes player Music
Store and Player.

I hear Apple has (only) 8 industrial designers for its physical product
design, and works with partners to put some of those extreme design
intents into engineering and production. I suspect that their
interaction design team should be much much larger.

Looking for great examples of customer reviews for ecommerce.

Hi,    I'm looking to collect some best practice examples to feed into a ratings and reviews project I'm working on for an ecommerce site in the UK. Can you think of any great examples - maybe something you've seen or something you've done you wouldn't mind sharing.
