Tonight while working on a web site for a client I was generating a header image that needed to be a specific width to fill out the header properly. The font selected by the client had the letters smashed together so I needed to add some space between the letters. I am not much of a designer so I had to play around with Adobe Photoshop until I was able to find the correct settings which happened to be named kerning and tracking. Kerning is used for a single letter and Tracking is used for a group of letters. These options are located in the Photoshop Character palette and can be modified using the steps below.
If you have enabled the Google Search History feature then every time you search for anything via Google then it will be stored and you can browse this data at a later date. At some point when you sign up for a Google account you will be asked if you want to enable the Google History feature which can be enabled or disabled at any time. The cool thing about this is everything you do will be tracked so if you visited a site a month ago but you cannot remember specifically what it was you can actually go back in your Google History to obtain the details about that site so you can visit it again. Google History will also allow you to know how often you have searched for a certain term, how many terms you searched for each day on Google, or how many web pages visited every day via Google.
