Web Designing from Evolution to Revolution [Infographic]


Via inspiredm.com
Here’s a nice infographic I came across today, released by Brush Lovers, fine curators of quality photoshop brushes, styles and patterns.

The term “web design” implies a great range of activities such as website planning, website creation, modeling, matching the right elements (fonts, banners, etc), coding, and arranging all pages in such a way that the end result will be a user-friendly and easy-to-use site. This infographic follows the journey of webdesign from its inception to the present days. Enjoy!

One on One: Twitter’s Photo Editor Vs. Instagram


Notice anything new about Twitter lately? More hipster-style pics than usual perhaps? That’s because Twitter now has its own photo editor. If you use Twitter on your smartphone, you can snap a shot, use filters to make the image more sassy and then share it with the rest of the world. Sounds familiar, right? Twitter’s built-in photo editor is a clear poke at Instagram.

In case you don’t know the full story on the Twitter-Instagram beef, here’s a short recap: it all began a few months ago through a series of changes brought about by Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram in April 2012. Later this December, Instagram announced that it will no longer support embedded photos on Twitter in an attempt to get more traffic to the Instagram platform. Twitter did not remain idle and quickly announced the release of their own photo editor.

But is Twitter able to put up a fight against the app that changed photo sharing forever? In this post, we present a thorough comparison of Instagram’s photo editing features and Twitter’s new editor. We keep an open mind; aware of the fact Twitter’s new photo editing tools need a few more months to mature.

Cropping Tool

Instagram requires users to crop their images into squares. This seemingly minor constraint forces you to consciously choose the focus of each frame and at times may hamper your creative urges. Twitter, on the other hand enables you to crop your image into either a square or a rectangle.

Instagram Photo Editor VS. Twitter

Auto Enhance

As you take a photo, Twitter will first present the unfiltered version of your image. Tapping the wand icon once will auto-enhance the photo for you. To undo, click it again. This is the same famous feature we all know from Instagram under the Sun icon. After using both apps in iOS6, we must say that Instagram’s auto-enhance takes the prize for sharpness, giving the image a more natural look.

Los teléfonos inteligentes están matando la fotografía | socialconsultingmedia.com


 

Por J.D Rucker

Los teléfonos inteligentes están matando la fotografía  En esta era de dispositivos móviles que pueden hacer casi cualquier cosa que incluso una versión más vieja podía hacer, una cosa que ha sufrido (en mi humilde opinión) es la fotografía. Hay quienes dicen que la abundancia de fotografías que se están adoptando y compartiendo es más que una compensación justa por la calidad baja y la atención al detalle que hizo una vez el  hacer una fotografía y mostrar algo que no requería una batería cargada, pero aun así perdía los maravillosos resultados de una fotografía tomada correctamente, desarrollada y posicionada.

La explosión móvil ha hecho que esto sucediera. Nadie va a negar que estos dispositivos han cambiado la vida de casi todos en el mundo, pero aún así es triste para aquellos de nosotros que fuimos a clases de fotografía, aprendimos a trabajar en un cuarto oscuro, y pasaba horas de fijación de una imagen sin la ayuda de Photoshop . Los niños de hoy pueden pasar toda su vida sin el manejo de un rollo de película.
