For those who are interested in graphics, desktop
publishing (DTP) and prepress issues, MacWorld (Oct. 95)
offers the following net resources (each begins with the
universal URL prefix "http://";, which I'll omit to save
space and my poor aching fingers):

DTP Internet Jump List (pointers to other resources
including fonts and clip art databases):

PrePress main street (how to tips, utilities, etc.)

Graphics web (list of service providers, later to include
buying fonts and clip art online).

Internet font directory (Postscript font directory with
historical info. plus thumbnail previews)

Digital picture archive (royalty-free low-res photos)

Adobe Systems' home page

Online graphics magazines (incl. tips on Web page design)

Note: Various authorities advise that you should not send
your credit card info. over the net. Even if you're dealing
with a legitimate vendor, there are lots of vultures out
there able to intercept credit card info. and use it for
their own purposes. Stick with phone or regular mail until
internet security is better. (If you're an internet ace,
you'll know enough about encryption to safely send
confidential info., but this relies on the folks on the
other end knowing how to decrypt your info. This may take
some negotiation!)

I haven't had time to verify these URLs to see if they're
of any use, but they sound promising and MacWorld is a
useful source of info. on most things Mac. I'd bet that the
URLs are good for PCs too. Disclaimer: Info. typed exactly
as it appeared in MacWorld... their typos are mine!

reports, it don't represent FERIC's opinion.
