Adobe’s Kuler beta site resurrects photo-color picker

  • Posted on May 5, 2017 at 5:02 pm

Adobe Systems has launched a beta version to try out changes to its color-picker Kuler service, including the restoration of an earlier feature to extract dominant colors from photos.

Kuler lets people assemble quintets of colors into a color scheme that’s saved into their own archive; people can browse others’ schemes as well. The colors can be imported into Adobe’s Illustrator software, too.

The photo tool is available by loading the new Kuler beta site. Adobe said Monday it’s seeking feedback on the changes, which it may or may not keep. Adobe also provided an option to use a less obtrusive color wheel and to shrink borders around colors so designers can better judge how they look together.

Kuler is useful, though hardly a heavyweight app like Photoshop or After Effects. But it’s interesting to watch since it’s got new-era online, collaborative, and social aspects that seem to be a priority for Adobe as it tries to convince skeptics that its $50-per-month Creative Cloud subscription is more than just a new way to pay for the old Creative Suitesoftware.

When Adobe cut over to its Creative Cloud subscription program, it introduced an iOS app that also can pick a color scheme from a photo.

Adobe once had a Kuler app for Android, but scrapped it and is channeling its resources toward the Kuler Web interface at present.

In response to a request for a Kuler Android app, an Adobe staff member had this to say:

While the iOS app and the discontinued Android app do have similar capabilities, they are actually quite a bit different. We have found that people use tablets and mobile phones very differently. So, we created the iPhone app with a different focus in mind — which translated to different features, UI, and interactions.

We have also found the tasks most people wanted to accomplish with Kuler, on a tablet device, are very similar to the tasks people undertake with the Kuler website. So, we’ve invested a lot of time and effort into updating the site to embrace the latest Web standards (also announced at MAX). And, it should work really well on Android and iOS tablets. We look forward to getting these updates in the hands of users to hear what they think.

We understand there are many Android phone users who may find an app like the Kuler iPhone app useful, and we’ll monitor demand for that over time.

In my tests on a Nexus 7 tablet, I was able to use the normal Kuler site, but the photo upload and color-wheel shrinking features had some problems. I could use photos I took on the spot and from the photo gallery, but imports from Google+ galleries, Dropbox, and Google Drive failed. Worse, the color wheel for picking colors by hand didn’t work with my touch screen.

Some Valuable Tips For Selecting A Reliable Antiaging Clinic

  • Posted on May 5, 2017 at 4:03 pm

It is vital for any person to carefully select the physician in case of antiaging treatment. One should select such professional who can follow safe methods for solving the issues you want addressing. It is also required that one should do thorough research and search for the best professional before choosing any one for their anti aging solution. One should follow some simple points that will help the person to select the best clinic.

The most important part is to visit the clinic, as it will give a complete idea on the services and the type of professionals who work there. One should not just rely on anybody else for information and should check everything personally before opting for any particular skin specialist.

When one is going to the clinic, discuss the problem in detail and should leave no stone unturned while doing this. It will help you to be confident about the solution that your doctor has finalized for you. One should also take another opinion from some other physician before selecting any particular professional for the services.

Once you have selected one of a clinic, check all the claims and the credentials of that clinic and physician. See all the certifications of the clinic and also make sure that the treating physician is well trained and well equipped. If you are thinking for facial plastic surgery, then crosschecking becomes even more mandatory.

When one has selected any particular clinic for anti aging, one should enquire about the credentials and the claims of the physician to check them out. One can also check for the several certifications that one has, as this will help one to make sure the physician is well qualified and trained in the process. To gain complete confidence in the doctor becomes all the more important if an individual is planning to get plastic surgery done.

When one is visiting the clinic of the professional, one can ask the manager about the details of clients who have got any anti aging treatment done from them. This can again give an idea of the level of skill of the practitioner. One can approach these clients to find out how they felt after they had the treatment done from a particular doctor.

Individuals must not worry over price too much as any credible and genuine antiaging treatment comes with a heavy price tag. Cost must not be a detrimental issue while you make a choice of anti aging treatment. So, select the best person and benefit from their expertise to stop aging of your body and skin as best you can.

Calories And Alcohol 5 Tips For Cutting The Calories In Alcoholic Drinks

  • Posted on May 5, 2017 at 3:56 pm

If you’re not careful, cocktails and other alcoholic beverages can add up to a huge amount of calories. If you’re trying to lose weight (or maintain your current weight), keep the following five tips in mind.

1. The first rule to remember for low calorie drinking applies to drinking in general: Limit your alcoholic beverages. The maximum recommended amount is two per day. If you go above this, you’re adding extra calories to your day as well as perhaps dealing with the problems of drinking too much alcohol. This may not be too much of a problem if you are only drinking occasionally. But if you find it difficult to stay to two drinks per day, you may want to seek professional help.

2. Not only does the quantity of the drinks make a difference in your calorie level, but the quantity of beverage that is in your glass counts as well. Seek out mixed drinks that have a lot of low calorie mixers, or add some water to further dilute the alcohol.

Ask for drinks made with soda water or regular water. If you don’t want to mix water into your drinks, try alternating an alcoholic beverage with a glass of water to dilute the amount of calories in your system.

3. When it comes to filling your glass, you can trick yourself into drinking less by using a lot of ice. If your glass is filled to the brim with ice, you’ll end up putting less of the drink into your glass to begin with. The ice will melt as you drink the beverage and your drink will become naturally diluted. More dilution equals fewer calories, and you’ll automatically drink less. You probably won’t even notice the difference.

4. Watch out for high calorie mixers. Mixed drinks can be tricky because there are a lot of mixers that are very high in calories. Anything sweet, sour or a mixture of both tends to be very high in calories.

There’s a reason those beverages taste good! They are filled with sugar to offset the flavor of the alcohol. Flavored liqueurs can also be chock full of sugar which can significantly raise the level of calories in your drink. If a mixed drink tastes like a dessert, it’s best to just leave it alone. Look for drinks mixed with soda water or regular water for your best low-calorie bet.

5. Finally, you can skip mixed drinks all together and go for an all around lower-calorie beverage choice, such as wine, champagne or light beer. These drinks all have significantly lower calorie levels than mixed drinks. There are some light beers that are just 60 calories per bottle.

Do keep in mind that having a low-calorie beverage isn’t a reason to drink more. It’s a good idea to limit your alcohol consumption to two drinks per day not matter how few calories your drink has.

Making Money with Articles – Picking a Good Web Hosting Company

  • Posted on May 5, 2017 at 2:08 pm

Picking a good web hosting company is important to keeping your website open and your costs down. There are many to choose from, as well as different pricing plans to look over. Depending on the amount of sites that you intend on building, you may want to consider a larger web space in the long run.

You should start with the smallest web space that you can get to test the waters, just incase niche website Internet marketing does not work out for you. You may want to add on later, so make sure that your provider offers that option.

You will want to choose a provider that has a reliable service. If your site is down or takes to long to open up when visitors are trying to get in, it may lead them to click out of your site and move on to the next one. They will also more than likely not visit in the future since they will remember their bad experience. For this reason, it is probably best to stick with a well known company who you can check reliable references on. There are many small hosting providers that offer space for as low as $.50 to $1 per month, however, you never know what you will be getting and many of them want you to pay for at least a years worth in advance.

You will also want one that has the most affordable hosting. If you can create your own small site or have one made for you, then you will probably be able to find space for as low as $3 to $4 per month. However, if you need to choose a company that offers a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) website builder, then you will probably end up paying $10 to $15 per month for the smallest amount of space. But if this is the only way that you can build a site, then it is necessary.

Some web hosting providers may also offer a deal on a yearly URL or other products when you make a web hosting purchase.

Ultimately, whatever web hosting provider you choose will depend on your individual needs and what you can afford. Hopefully you will be able to snap up a well known provider at a low price who will allow you to upgrade your service as needed.

How to Shop for the Best Coffee Machine

  • Posted on May 5, 2017 at 1:53 pm

Trying to find the perfect coffee machine is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Considering the variety of different coffee makers out there, the entire experience can be more than a little overwhelming. Take time to focus on the big picture, before making any decision. There are six basic methods of making coffee. Select which method you’re going to use, then find a machine that fits.

Single Cup Coffee Machines are liked by many for their speed, ease of use and flexibility. This style of coffee maker uses either a coffee pod or a coffee capsule. Coffee pods come complete with ground coffee inside its own filter. The pods are produced by a number of corporations and may be switched between different brands and models. Single cup coffee brewers that use capsules pose a disadvantage since they are not interchangeable. Both the capsules and machine need to be purchased from the same company.

Introduced in the early 1970s, the drip coffee maker quickly replaced the percolator as the most common way to brew coffee at home. They are economical to use and quite simple to operate. Place some ground coffee in the paper filter, pour water into the reservoir and turn on the machine. As water is heated to the correct temperature, it drips onto the grains in the filter and runs through to the glass carafe below. Be careful not to leave the coffee sitting on the hot plate for too long, as it can start to cook. One way around this problem is to use a thermally insulated carafe.

The combination coffee machine is basically a drip coffee machine combined with a grinder. It’s simple to use and easy to brew a fresh pot of coffee. Place some whole beans in the bean reservoir, pour the right amount of water into its reservoir in turn on the machine. The appropriate amount of beans gets ground and poured directly into the filter. From this point forward, it operates exactly as a drip coffee maker. You can set the machine up the night before, to make the freshest cup of coffee,for the next morning. These combination coffee makers are usually bigger than standard coffee machines. So make sure you take measurements, if you want to put it on your kitchen counter underneath the upper.

The French Press Coffee Maker (or coffee plunger) could very well be one of the best coffee machines. It’s actually quite simple and some models are very aesthetic. The French Press is simply a glass beaker with a plunger and mesh filter on it. Put some coarse coffee grounds in the jar, mix in some hot water and let it steep for about three to four minutes. Then simply push the plunger down to separate the grounds from the coffee. Some people feel the flavor and essential oils are better captured because the grounds stay in direct contact with the water, and a fine mesh is used instead of a paper filter. However, because of the direct contact the coffee will become bitter fast if left to stand.

A vacuum coffee maker is the machine with two chambers, where vapor pressure and vacuum work together to produce coffee. Admirers of this method of coffee making it feel that produces a much cleaner, crisper, richer and smoother coffee. With your you agree or not, one thing is true. This is a complicated and time consuming method of making coffee. These are not easy machines to keep clean, due to their convoluted shape. Perhaps that’s why it’s not a very popular way of making coffee.

Prior to the 1970s, the percolator could be found in practically every coffee drinking home in North America. Whether it was a stove top or an electric model, everyone had one. They are called percolators because of the percolating action that occurs continuously. Cold water is poured into the bottom of the percolator where it warms up and moves to the top through a pipe. The water disperses onto the coffee grounds and gravity pulls it back down to the bottom of the machine. Here it heats up again and the cycle repeats. Once the coffee reaches boiling point the perking action stops and the coffee is ready to drink. These days, percolators are mostly used for larger crowds. It’s very rare to find one sized for regular home use.

Is The ‘Money Game’ Deceiving You

  • Posted on May 5, 2017 at 1:50 pm

This message is a brief expose on the money scam and how it is symbolised in the Western world using the American dollar bill as an example, giving rise to how the hidden powers that be work behind the scenes and what you can do after you’ve got the realization that you’re being played.

What is money? ?

-Answer: Money is a means by which energy is exchanged. The economic system is based on work energy exchanges from person to person during the supply and demand.

Let me give some simple examples. I am a musician and let’s say I have received payment for playing a live musical performance. This payment represents the energy I had to put in to make that performance happen.

Let’s say I then give money earned from this performance to a mechanic. The money or payment the mechanic receives is for the energy he had to put in to repair my car. Then, the mechanic gives this money earned to someone else for their work energy related services to him and so on.

-In short, throughout the working world money goes where the energy flows in the exchanging, but here’s the rub.

In the above examples let’s say in every case the money paid out was fair and fitting to the amount of energy each person had put in for their services. However, in the world of work this is definitely not the case. There is a great imbalance:

Most people (like yourself?) in order to earn their pay check will have to put in far more than they’ll ever receive. That is, instead of receiving a balanced payment for their efforts most of the money made will go to their corporation. The fact that giant corporations make huge pre-tax profits each year and can get away with paying some of its workforce minimum wages tells you there is a huge imbalance. -This imbalance, unfair returns on people’s daily work energy contributions occurs on a global scale. It has been orchestrated by the hidden powers that be and it doesn’t end there.

There’s a whole list of other bloodsucking systems including many unfair taxations, banking and financial scams designed to siphon off the people’s hard earned cash to just a few very wealthy individuals: The ruling elite have deceptively manipulated the world financial system to such an extent that they control more money than the entire world’s governments stuck together. This means that they have usurped the energies from we-the-people to such an extent that we have become physically and mentally enslaved.

But it is always wise to offer love help to yourself by discussing all the major issues of your life with your partner like kids, money, sex etc. It is a fact that most of the relationship problems are sort out by communication itself. Some common problems are given here that are the reason behind relationship problems in most of the couples. Go through them and get love help that can make your relationship stronger: Assets and liabilities: Mostly the foundation of relationship problems starts from the day when the couple start going out and spend a lot of money.

Instead of facing such situations it is far better to discuss with your partner about your current financial position. The emotional connection between both of you will grow stronger as there will be no unrealistic expectations. Communication breakdown: If the situations of taking love help arises in your life it is definitely because of the communication gap. It is also a major cause of the relationship problems just because both of you don’t discuss major issues of your life openly and you might not pay attention to each other’s conversation. This situation can be easily avoided if both of you take time for each other few times a week and communicate properly. By this way the emotional connection between both of you will become stronger as one knows that the partner is there to listen carefully. Changing Priorities: Nothing is constant in this ever changing world. It is a fact that before dating or while dating both the man and woman put extra effort to impress each other. They do anything that pleases the other without even caring whether they like it or not. Once the serious relationship starts nothing remains as it is and this leads to serious problems. To avoid such relationship problems remain true to your partner. Tell them your fact instead of doing silly things just to impress the other.
