Prairie and Depth Perception were the ones I was thinking of for dramatic landscapes. I'll give you the others, though I'd argue the point in the strip still stands, as they make far more sparing use of colour than for the car photos.

I knew this would be coming eventually, but I decided to do it myself anyhow.

Keming

Image
Alt: I have never been as self-conscious about my handwriting as when I was inking in the caption for this comic. I.e., I hate you all.
Source: 1015

Making that, in turn, inspired me to make one of my own pet peeve:
Aliasing

Image
Alt: Admittably, antialiasing isn't all you need when it comes to text. I personally recommend ClearType.
Source: 1015

I was also planning one on JPEGs, which bother me more than either of the above issues, but I'm tired now. Someone else can take their hand at it, if they like.

Forget album covers, Papyrus was used for the title of the highest-grossing movie ever.

Can you find them all? Kerning, Alignment, Justified text, Overuse of emphasis, Stereotypical Wordart styling, Comic Sans, Papyrus, Spelling, Grammar, txtspk, 1337speak, Unnecessary drop shadow, Pillow shading, Cropping, Aliasing, JPEG, GIF, and Dithering.
Source: 1015


Fun fact: there is a room of computers at my college running a 'special' Windows Virtual Console. And by special, I mean it chooses to randomly GIF/Dither or JPEG areas of the screen, and also leaves all text aliased. Fortunately, it has not yet gained the capability to do the other things displayed above.

No, it says "(ity offi(es." The sign creator hates us twice as much.

In light of the impermanence and absurdity of existence, I surmise that nothing is better for us than to rejoice and to do good in our lives, and that everyone should eat and drink and enjoy the good of his/her labor. Such enjoyment is a gift from God.
