Using Lightroom on multiple computer with photos on external hard-drive? Here is your solution.
No traditional sync service allows you to keep your Lightroom settings in sync. So I tried Bittorrent sync.
I might be the last one to the party, but the fairly recent changes in the Youtube UI made it my home for many video podcasts. While I listen to most of my podcasts, some of them are video podcasts to start with and therefore are better suited to be watched (at least in part) than just listened to. What I like about the new Youtube interface is that is has put my subscriptions in the foreground and has elevated the Watch later Playlist (which I still use) with the "What to Watch" Page where I can see selected content from my subscriptions. The addition of "topics" you can subscribe to is also very handy to discover new channels.
Add this to the ability to watch them through a Chromecast / PS3 / XBox etc on a big screen and you get a great "platform" for enjoying video content about topics you care.
PS: As offline capabilities are rumored for the Android App, I guess it will become even better.
The new Google Play website has switched to Web-P Images for icons and other graphics - so you are likely to encounter this file fomrat more prominently. If you want to use it in Photoshop you need a plugin. I tried a couple of them and only one works fine with transparencies. You can download it for free on GitHub from Brendan Bolles. Get it here : https://github.com/fnordware/AdobeWebM
BTW: You don't put this plugin in the general plugin folder but in Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)/Required/Plug-Ins/File Formats
This is just a quick tip. I had to quickly change the color of a red seat into a white one … after first trying to desaturate and lighten up the whole scene I remembered that I could try the channel mixer. And guess what, you can simply select the preset (or adjust your own settings) and the red seats are magically white.
I tried to come up with an easy yet powerful life-hack to get daily meal suggestions.
Microsoft launched a new automation Android App with it's web counterpart. Think of it as a IFTTT, Locale or Tasker on Steroids.
