2 Mac Tips for fonts and colors

Do you like simple, but cool tips for your Mac computer?

I came across two relatively simple and really neat Mac tips for managing colors and fonts in native Mac Apps (Mail, Calendar, MindNode Pro, etc. . .):

Font Preview Pane. From Tim Priebe of T&S Web Design in Edmond, Oklahoma.
See a preview of the font/typeface right above the selection window and before you have to choose for real.

Color Gather. From Andy Inhatko of the CWOB, the Chicago Sun Times and MacBreak Weekly.
Pick colors from Apple’s selection based on actual pictures you have taken. Import a picture and start matching colors.

I demonstrate the tips below in a screencast.

Do you have any other cool Mac tips? Let me know in the comments below.

I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
