Typically, to create a column layout, you would need to add the first or last classes to reset the margin space and clear the float. Today I’m going to share a very simple CSS trick to create a responsive column layout using nth-of-type pseudo class. I use this trick to code the WordPress themes at Themify. It doesn’t require any first or last class and the number of columns can be adjusted base on the viewport. In other words, it can be toggled from 4-column to 3-column or 2-column, etc.
I’m sure you all are using viewport meta tag for responsive design, but did you know that the viewport tag can also be very useful for non-responsive design? If you haven’t got the time to convert your design to responsive yet, you should read this article on how to use viewport tag to improve the appearance of your design on mobile devices.

I’ve been using Photoshop CS6 for a while and I have to say that the interface and user experience is a big improvement. Instead of releasing more new tools, Photoshop CS6 put a lot of focus on the basics — the essential tools that we use very often such as crop tool, type, layer group, and save. For example, now you can apply effects on layer group, keep cropped pixels, type styles, and save in background. These simple enhancements result in increase productivity.
