If you love Photoshop and own a fridge, these magnets might be for you. It’s a sure fire way to make any photo you post on your fridge look Photoshopped.

What else can I say about Photoshop magnets except that I am disappointed they didn’t include a magnet for the cursor. Next maybe I’ll create some photoshop banners to hang throughout the house. Yup. I’m a nerd.

    Would I have to upgrade my fridge when the new Creative Suite is released?

    Unfortunately, I’m the only one in the house that would ‘get’ it. I’d have to buy my own fridge!!

  2. 2 Trollita Sep 1st, 2009 at 12:26 PM

    It looks fake. Obviously shopped.

  3. 3 Tasha Sep 1st, 2009 at 3:59 PM

    Yep, Trollita’s right.

    And what if one wants a Windows compatible version?

  4. 4 mik Sep 2nd, 2009 at 12:02 AM

    @Tasha…exactly, love the magnets, but not a fan of MAC…why not just remove the logo so it’s “generic” for everyone to use?

  5. 5 katie Sep 2nd, 2009 at 12:53 PM

    where can i get these :P

  6. 6 Robin Sep 2nd, 2009 at 1:01 PM

    Now I know what I want for christmas hehe. Maybe I can download them from Piratebay?

  7. 7 Nicole Sep 3rd, 2009 at 1:58 PM

    @mik… because the interface is completely different as well, not just the logo?

  8. 8 Zachary Sep 3rd, 2009 at 9:05 PM

    I hear gimp stickers are free.

  9. 9 bram Sep 4th, 2009 at 9:09 PM

    its not a trial version ryt?

  10. 10 Kirb Sep 4th, 2009 at 10:08 PM

    Bah, where’s the Windows version? :(

  11. 11 robb Sep 5th, 2009 at 9:33 AM

    wow this is so cool.
    and someone should make windows desktop.

  12. 12 Jahangir Sep 5th, 2009 at 6:39 PM

    Looking good. Nice creation :)

  13. 13 JDavis Sep 6th, 2009 at 2:20 AM

    @Nicole In CS4 the mac and windows interfaces are almost exactly the same

    … But this magnet set is based on CS3.

  14. 14 Dave Sep 6th, 2009 at 9:31 PM

    Where do I get a set of these for VisiCalc?

  15. 15 mike Sep 9th, 2009 at 11:13 PM

    this is awesome. where do i buy?

  16. 16 SLABAN Sep 13th, 2009 at 9:34 AM

    Windows users don’t deserve it.

  17. 17 Nathaniel Wolfe Sep 17th, 2009 at 11:10 PM

    The Mac Photoshop UI does not have a background, like most Mac apps… if it were the PC Photoshop interface, it would just be a big square photoshop screenshot.

    Just get a Mac. It’s your duty as an agent in the evolution of computers. Vote for better interfaces and usability, vote for internal consistency, and put the pressure on an industry that follows the bottom-line. The last thing I want to see is Apple with a monopoly on quality interfaces.

    Lister… Clearly shares his knowledge level with his Red Dwarf counterpart and more particularly hasn’t ever had to use both a Mac and a Windows box. If he had then he would totally understand what a Mac user has to be so smug about. ESPECIALLY when it comes to a creative using a computer for creative applications.

  20. 20 Aer Sep 24th, 2009 at 11:52 AM

    @TROLLita: Who cares if it’s shopped, you trollop! It’s an awesome design concept that clearly you couldn’t think of for yourself, and IT’S FOR PHOTOSHOP. Personally, I would be ashamed of they had used anything else to make a display.

    @Smug Mac Users: I have used both Macs and PC for graphic needs, and I found them to be about the same. On the other hand, on a PC I can play WoW at the same time I have Photoshop or Illustrator open. My point? Mac is a one-trick pony, which makes it only on par with all the others. Unless you want a cheap computer; then you’re boned. So really, quit being so smug. You’re like Twilight fangirls.

  21. 21 stu j Sep 24th, 2009 at 12:11 PM

    Actually my son runs OS X, Photoshop, WoW and even Windows XP all at the same time on just his Macbook…

  22. 22 Jobs, Blow Oct 29th, 2009 at 7:58 PM

    Nathaniel has a point,

    It’s your duty to shell out an extra $1000 for the fashionable, planned obsolescence that is Mac. You have an ethical obligation to spend twice as much for a computer that works half as long (with half a mouse) and can only be repaired with your credit card. Don’t shun your responsibility to fill the world’s land-fills with this really, really pretty (although short-lived) technology.
    Do your part people.

    Oh, and – real or shopped – these magnets are stupid.

  23. 23 Aer Oct 30th, 2009 at 1:57 AM

    @stu j: It’s not special that your son can run the default Mac OS along with XP. It’s Vista that’s the resource hog, and personally I stay the heck away from Vista. Still, even if your son can run the same stuff that I can on my PC, it still means that he paid way to much for his computer to do the same stuff that mine does.

    But, really, why would a mac user want a Windows OS on their computer? If you’re going to buy a Mac, you should use the Mac OS. You should never *ever* claim that a Mac is better if you don’t even think that the OS handles everything you want it to.

  24. 24 stu j Oct 30th, 2009 at 3:16 AM

    Aer:
    Generally he doesn’t and I now only use it on my Mac at work for people that supply artwork created in Publisher and to view websites I build on different systems and browsers. Your perception of paying over the odds is quite interesting, obviously you’re talking about nothing other than the initial hardware purchase.

    Typically speaking what percentage of windows users do you think have had virus problems? Haven’t companies with no affiliation to Apple worked out that the total cost of ownership of a Mac is often less?

    How about performance? I think it was HP who had to edit or withdraw an advert recently because they had someone in a shop comparing equally spec’d laptops and worked out that the HP was cheaper for the same thing, only it wasn’t! It actually had an equally fast processor but some other component that isn’t generally listed in the advertising spec made it way slower, I can’t remember the precise details but I’m sure it’s easy to find if you Google it.

    I would love to be able to get what I do with my Mac for the price of a PC but I can’t.

    Also to respond to the previous post to yours… Have you really thought about your comments on the lifespan of a Mac? I have a Macbook Pro that’s now 3 years old and cost me about £960, currently the same model is up to £385 with 22 bids on eBay and 12 hours left to go. It can still run current versions Adobe CS software comfortably and drive an external 30″ monitor. I only upgraded recently because the performance jump was worth it to me.

    If a Mac doesn’t have anything to justify the price why is it that Microsoft keep trying to copy the Mac OS?

  25. 25 Aer Nov 1st, 2009 at 12:39 PM

    Stu J:
    Okay, this may be where it becomes hard to compare prices, because I use US dollars and it’s my understanding that our dollar is only worth about half what yours is. My Dell Inspiron is 4 years old, runs all of the current Adobe programs, and was about $800-1,000. It’s currently the only computer in the house that doesn’t have anything broken. My brother has an HP laptop that I have had to fix once or twice, needed a RAM upgrade, and currently doesn’t have working wifi. Other than those problems, however, I am unfamiliar with the performance of HPs. From the problems that my brother has had, I think I’ll stay far away from them.
    As far as the cost to maintain my laptop, I haven’t had to by anything but a few new power cords (which can be found online and fairly reliably for $15), as I have pets with gnawing problems. Once, I had to pay $60 to have my OS reinstalled, but have since learned how to do that myself. Believe me: As a college student that worked at your local, privately-owned grocery store, if I had to pay out the rear for maintenance, I would be pretty unhappy.
    I can’t attest to anything in the field of resale. Nor do I care to even get into it. There are many other factors to take into account that can affect resale value, and besides that, I don’t ever plan to sell my computer. Even though I plan to get a new desktop when finances allow, I would still keep my laptop for portability and as a backup.
    For the record, I’d like Windows to stop trying to copy the Mac OS. If I liked the Mac OS, I’d use a Mac.
    It should also probably be said that people that don’t know diddly about computers will likely buy a PC because they’re less intimidating and cheaper for the basics. That would of course lead to a higher percentage of users with problems and, since they’re unfamiliar with how to maintain a computer by themselves, are forced to pay others to repair the computers for them.
    As it stands, I like my PC better. Which is not to say that I won’t use a Mac, as I learned Photoshop and Illustrator on Macs in highschool, and am one of few people at my college that are able to comfortably use a Mac. I’ll say again that I haven’t noticed either one being better than the other in terms of performance.

  26. 26 stu j Nov 1st, 2009 at 2:38 PM

    Aer:

    Well I think I agree with everything in your last post! :)

    my real views on the whole subject are that it is often down to personal preference but I do think that you need to have a fair bit more knowledge to have a hassle free experience with Windows than you do with a Mac, for instance there has never to the best of my knowledge been such a thing as paying someone else to reinstall your system on a Mac, you;ve always just put the floppy/CD/DVD in and followed the instructions.

    I have to admit that someone who knows what they are doing can achieve probably everything they want to on Windows for less money than on a Mac BUT if you want more than the cheapest possible basic entry model then Macs can start weighing up pretty well price wise, especially with the iLife and iWork suites that cost next to nothing or get bundled with Macs. Things like never having had to install a driver to get a digital camera to work with iPhoto I think are great.

    So to sum up I think that a geek (not meant as an insult) can do as much for less on a Windows box but I honestly strongly believe that a even a complete computer novice (my mum for instance) can achieve things on a Mac.

    Like yourself I find it daft that Microsoft keep copying Apple, it’s not really helping give people choice and even more odd that the company with the vast and virtually invincible majority market share can pioneer their own groundbreaking way of doing things, but then that has always been the case (and no, I’m not trying to say that Apple originated everything as I’m well aware they actually got the GUI idea from Xerox).

    Each to their own! :)

  31. 31 Web Design Maidstone Nov 25th, 2009 at 1:35 PM

    awesome, i want one and shall ask santa

  32. 32 Monkin Nov 26th, 2009 at 3:02 PM

    Just print screen and then print out the picture of your photoshop screen with whatever pictures you want, cut it out and put it on a magnet, u can get the thin cheap ones like those look like for pretty cheap at any craft supplies and most stores like walmart or target might have them, then just cut and glue em together, freakin easy if u want these for cheap and without the mac logo, u can even make a cursor…. if you want it to look nicer try using a shiny photo paper instead of regular paper when u print it. but im a cheap bastard so that might just be me i dunno

    I like the fact that’s it’s holding up a picture. My family wouldn’t understand it either, but it would be fun for me to look at, or when my graphics friends drop by to raid my refrigerator.

    These magnets look awesome, and the fact that you could put a photo on the fridge and then hold them in place with the magnets…. brilliant idea !

    It’s funny how Macs are viciously snarked on for being good looking, intuitive and expensive, like these are bad things. Those qualities in any other consumable are desirable, as it creates prestige.

    While I do like some features on the Windows PC better (like Window’s image preview – macs have issues showing animated .gifs unless it’s dropped into an internet browser), but what I really enjoy about Macs is that I can trust their products to improve. Actually and truly improve, and usually very quickly – before I get frustrated with a feature.

    I don’t have that same confidence in Wintell machines or Windows products.

  54. 54 Jennifer Moline, PsPrint Dec 7th, 2009 at 11:01 AM

    I love this magnet set so much that I included it in “16 Stress-Free Holiday Gift Ideas” aimed at techies, graphic designers, etc.

    wow things got really nasty quickly here… I think everyone needs to take a deep breath and go play outside for a little while… remember to turn your computer off while you’re out, or it might end up in a land fill sooner than you’d hoped…

    peace be with you

    I can understand some MAC users being really happy with their devices. After all, you really didn’t have to put much effort into building it. You bought it. The day I will own a MAC is the day I can build it myself.

    I don’t buy my desktops, I build them. I can control what hardware goes into and when to upgrade it. And it costs me over 50% LESS than what I would have paid for a MAC.

    This last time around I had it spec’d to $5,000 for a MAC and it costs me $2,000 to build what I have now.

    Intel Core i7 Processor at 3.06 Ghz Quad-core, 16 Gigs of RAM, 1 TB hard drive 7200RPM, 2 nVidia GeForce GTX 260 Video cards SLI’d together with 896mb ram per card, EVGa motherboard with built in 7.1 audio, blue ray drive, case, power supply amd a 24″ monitor with HD support and 1080p.

    Benefits, if any 1 item goes bad, I can get it replace within 24 hours and have it back up and running without any help from anyone else.

    As far as viruses go, never had one. I got an excellent security software suite, I keep it maintained and I watch where I go on the net. Viruses typically get the uninformed and the stupid.

  61. 61 rmc Dec 11th, 2009 at 10:32 AM

    PS: If macs were more predominate, there would be more viruses made for them. As it stands, there’s not enough being used to make the effort for the virus creators.

  62. 62 James Dec 11th, 2009 at 11:06 AM

    You want a Windows version? If you have Photoshop, just screen grab the tool boxes you want, crop as desired and print to a sticker. Apply the sticker to magnet sheet and trim. Viola!

    I’ll probably do this myself.

  63. 63 stu j Dec 11th, 2009 at 12:53 PM

    rmc:

    I do agree with your point about the popularity of the system BUT that is only part of it. Let’s face it, do you really rate a company for writing good secure software when they can do an entire system update that virtually no one wanted over the last one? Wasn’t Vista a total pile of shit? Isn’t it true the Mac OS holds up well when they have the yearly hacking contests?

    Anyway, I was only taking a cheap shot and I agree it would be awesome to have the option of legitimately building your own Mac. I think to do a good job of it and build a stable machine you must really have to know your stuff.

  64. 64 stu j Dec 11th, 2009 at 1:48 PM

    rmc:
    I totally like your style. I have installed Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro using VMWare Fusion and it is my favourite Windows yet but funnily enough the one that’s most like a Mac ;) Actually that’s not true, I thought NT4 was amazing because it did absolutely nothing but my god was it stable when it came to running print software. I ran a Postcript RIP on it for about 3 years and I don’t remember it crashing once.

    It actually sounds to me like you’d have loads of fun with Mac OS X, there are always ‘broken’ versions going around (not sure that’s the right term) that can be installed on non Mac boxes.

    Anyway, I’d hate it if everyone had Macs because they’d never be so cool then so I best start slagging them down. :)

  65. 65 rmc Dec 11th, 2009 at 1:24 PM

    Hi Stu,

    Windows ME was an abomination. Vista was ME on steriods. I stayed on XP until Windows 7. I signed up for the release candidate and it was everything Vista should have been. I’ve got the full version of Windows 7 64 bit. The one thing I’ve learned is it’s not always the best idea to jump on the new version of *any* application. It took me a long time to go to XP and I never upgraded to Vista, but via a job, I did have to support it and learned enough about it to despise it. Microsoft was attempting to make an application so secure the average user would be well protected. The down side to it was, no matter how hard you try, stupid people are still going to click on something they shouldn’t and it becomse a futile effort. You don’t have to be very tech saavy on a MAC because the threat level just isn’t there.

    I really don’t know the MAC OS well enough to judge it against windows and the hacking contests are nothing I’ve kept up with. If more people used MAC’s the hacking and the viruses would improve. Because so many coporations, not to mention governments, use Windows, that’s where the focus is. Windows is not my security software. I use a third party app that works really, really well.

    Between on-the-job training, the school of hard knocks and being a geek, I’ve learned how to build and bascially troubleshoot Windows based PC’s. I will never own a MAC because in order to come close to the power I have built with my Windows PC, I would have to over spend. And the name just isn’t worth it.

    Bear in mind, I’m not a huge MS fan. I’ve often referred to them as Microsuck, but it’s the affordable game in town. And the devil that I know.

    Cheers!

  66. 66 Jim Dec 11th, 2009 at 4:04 PM

    Great idea!

    Why are all you guys bitching? Who gives a crap if it’s based on a Mac or not. It’s still Photoshop. Can’t you just acknowledge a great idea without turning it into a competition. ffs!

  67. 67 RD Dec 11th, 2009 at 5:25 PM

    The fridge magnet version probably works better than the actual MacOS version. Where is the options bar at the top, though? Might have made a better and more universal top border than the MacOS menu bar.

  68. 68 bighouse graphix Dec 11th, 2009 at 6:16 PM

    Badass design. Props due. If you use photoshop you get it.

  69. 69 rmc Dec 11th, 2009 at 7:14 PM

    Funny thing is. as a Windows user, I don’t care if it’s the MAC version or not. I like the design and find it amusing.

    Stu,

    Thanks. Well that’s just the funny part, they’ve been trying for that for a while now, haven’t they?

  70. 70 Lou Ruiz Dec 24th, 2009 at 11:49 AM

    A true creative person (windows or mac) could easily make his or her own.

  71. 71 Red Apple Dec 28th, 2009 at 8:36 AM

    I hope one of the magnets is the Bloat and Pucker filter.

  72. 72 Sergey Jan 7th, 2010 at 5:09 AM

    Cool thing, but however with the price of delivery to Russia is becoming very expensive (

    Fantastic Idea,
    Where can I get a set from. Do the come in window stickers, would look great on the studio’s windows. :)

    On what CMS your blog works? In advance thanks for the answer.

    So it only works on MAC fridges? lol

  80. 80 Tressie Smuin Oct 20th, 2010 at 9:29 PM

    I’m normally not the guy to submit my opinion on people’s blogs, but for your article I just had to do it. I’ve been browsing through your site a lot nowadays and I am super impressed, I think you could really become one of the main opinions for your market. Not sure what your free time is like in life, but if you started devoting more time to posting here, I would bet you would start getting a mass of traffic eventually. With ads, it could become a nice second income stream. Just an idea to think about. Good luck!

  81. 81 Edy Jul 19th, 2011 at 7:02 AM

    I agree on the statement above

    Wow. Thank you for the compliments! Those comments weren’t shopped, I swear.
