Adobe Photoshop CS 5 and CS 6 have a set of features called Content Aware. They automatically fill in gaps or selected areas in images as if those gaps or parts were never there. It’s not perfect, but it can be a time saver for many operations.
If you rely on video tutorials to help you do your job, then chances are you’ve had to resize your windows so you can work and watch your video at the same time. Having a smaller workspace to do whatever it is you need to do is not only hard, but it’s also extremely inconvenient.
If you’ve ever met someone at a party or meeting and wanted to exchange social networking information, you know it can be kind of a pain. Sure, you can hand them a business card – even one with a QR code on it – but that exchange of info still isn’t instantaneous, and requires the other party to follow up later.
I’m a big fan of Philips Hue LED bulbs. In fact, I’ve got two rooms of my house outfitted with the bulbs, and continue to add more. There’s something just so cool about walking into my home theater, pulling out my iPhone, and changing the colors in the room to set the mood for a movie or video game session.
While some of the other apps that I’ve come across recently promise to wake you up in different ways, this one strips away all unnecessary functions and goes down to the bare essentials of what an alarm should be.
It’s been at least a decade since I last played a tabletop RPG, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are programs out there that augment players’ pens and papers with mice and keyboards. But here’s one that seems very easy to use.
App.net was launched last year, and it was a created as a Twitter alternative for companies and organizations who want a private social networking solution. The App.net social networking service is no longer just for paying members.
Love it or hate it, it looks like Twitter’s Vine has managed to attract a pretty solid following ever since its launch. Time will tell if it’ll become as big of a fixture in the social media sphere as Instagram, but for now, it’s sure getting a lot of attention – particularly because people like Dawn Siff are finding unusual and creative ways to use the platform.
Ever since Instagram had its terms of service hullabaloo last year, many people have been looking at different photo-sharing apps in order to fill the void in their app life after they bailed out on Instagram.
I think that one of Microsoft’s biggest mistakes in recent years is Windows RT, and by extension the Surface RT. I’m not saying Windows RT devices are useless. It’s just that seen in the context of their release, they are products that can confuse and scare off potential Windows 8 users.
I’ve been using Alien Skin plug-ins with Photoshop for years, so it’s nice to know that the company behind these plug-ins continues to improve their tried-and-true Eye Candy package for those of you who want to embellish your images with cool effects.
In case you’ve forgotten the power and versatility of today’s mobile devices, Autodesk’s 123D Creature app will be one hell of a reminder. The app has all you need to create your own 3D character, from building a skeleton to sculpting and painting and even ordering a 3D print of your creation.
You can already own 3D replicas of your Minecraft avatar thanks to 3D printing. But if you want a cheaper and faster way, you can use Minecraft Papercraft Studio – an iOS app made by UK developer 57Digital – and the cutting edge technology known as “folding” to turn flat paper into blocky models.
The Mailbox app has finally launched on iOS, but before you start jubilating about how clean your email box will finally be, you’d better download it and start waiting, because the wait to use will be long.
