Photoshop and Illustrator Magnetic Photo Whiteboards

by


Do you spend a good bit of your time in front of your computer monitor engrossed in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator? Now you can break down that pesky divide between the digital and real worlds with this clever magnetic photo board.

The designers over at Brazil’s Meninos (the same guys who gave us some oh-so-awesome iPhone coasters and pop art hard drives) created these wall-mountable magnetic photo boards that let you hold your pictures in place using those familiar palettes from Photoshop or Illustrator.

Each set comes with a bunch of magnetic palettes, menu bar and a contextual pop-up that you can stick on top of your photos. I always wondered why you couldn’t put your palettes at an angle on your computer. Seems like you should be able to do whatever you want with them – after all it is your computer, right?

Unfortunately, it looks like these are all based on the CS3 Mac versions, and not CS4, so the palettes don’t dock neatly on the side of the monitor. I really hope they include a tiny little spinning beachball magnet as shown in the photo below.

The PS and AI magnetic photo boards are available for pre-order over at the Meninos Shop in 30″ and 20″ widescreen versions, with prices ranging from $65 to $95 USD depending on size and whether you get magnets for one or both programs.

At least Meninos won’t want hundreds of dollars for an upgrade if and when they eventually make a CS4 version.

    65 bucks for a big magnetic photoboard is… kind of ridiculous. it’s a cool idea, but i’d never pay that price for it.

    ps, the second link [the popart hard drive] also leads to the coaster page.

    I always use Adobe illustrator at work because i work in an animation studio. this is really a serious tool for the graphic artist.:,`
