Printer business

After changing the ink cartridge I have to print a testpage. And the ink cartridge is half empty then. Great business case! It's like topping up the car and then drive 100 miles to proof if the car still works.

Nach dem Wechseln einer Druckerpatrone druck ich eine Testseite aus und schon ist die halbe Patrone leer. Tolles Geschäftsmodell! Das ist als würde ich volltanken und dann 200km fahren um zu sehen, ob das Auto immer noch funktioniert.

#Photoshop: Seven Reasons to Use the Camera Raw Filter in Adobe Photoshop CC

The Adobe Camera Raw plug-in, used to convert RAW images into pixels Photoshop can understand, is an incredibly powerful yet easy-to-use editor. However, if you don’t shoot in RAW format, you might not think to use it. In this column, you’ll learn seven reasons to summon the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop CC.

#Musicproduction: #Bohemian: This Music Startup Creates Custom Guitars with a New Sound

Bohemian’s guitars are great for any level musician, whether you’re a first-time player or an international performer. Coming in at $299 for the base model, they’re below the market average guitar price, which Lee estimates to be around $430. Considering the sound quality compared to the price, one of Bohemian’s instruments would be an excellent option for someone’s first guitar—or their fourth. “Guitarists are notorious collectors,” he said.

#Photoshop: Using a Depth Mask to Simulate Volumetric Effects

“Simulate volumetric effects”…what? Those just sound like a bunch of big, fancy words. In plain English, what exactly is a volumetric effect?
Put simply, a volumetric effect represents what happens to a subject when it exists in a semi-transparent substance such as fog, smoke, or murky water.
Okay. So what does this have to do with a…what did you call it…depth mask?

Water guns - Wasserwerfer

Water guns are great. For sport not to splash water against your own people in the streets. Unfortunately there is no video game with water guns.

Wasserwerfer find ich toll. Als Sportgerät, nicht als Waffe, mit dem man auf die eigenen Leute schießt. Leider gibt es kein Videospiel mit Wasserwerfer.

#Photography: Tips for Using Shadows in Photography

#Photography: Digital Photography Tip: Shooting in Bright Sunlight

It’s that time of year when the sun is high in the sky for much of the day. The brightness and warmth of these long days may seem to be made for taking photographs. But, in fact, shooting in direct, harsh sunlight can result in photos that are high contrast, with blown out highlights and deep shadows. Bright overhead sunlight can cause colors to look washed out. And, if you are photographing people, the sunlight can cause them to squint which distorts a person’s facial features.

#Photography: Tip: How to Use Selective Focus

Photography is above all a visual storytelling medium. It's easy to get caught up in the joy of taking pictures and forget that. You can use it to capture large scenes or to focus on details. It's the details we want to cover this time, and specifically how it's done from a technical point of view.

Failure - Mißerfolg

When I fail I always think of a camle: Don't climb up, cannot fall down. Everybody must know what he is doing. I mean, you cannot eat meat for decaeds and at the first attack of gout proceed against the butcher.

Bei Mißerfolgen denke ich an ein Kamel: Wärst nicht raufgestiegen, wärst nicht runtergefallen. Jeder muß halt wissen, was er tut. Man kann ja auch nicht jahrzehntelang Fleisch essen und bei einem gichtanfall den Fleischhauer verklagen.

#Musicproduction: NUSofting releases "Anything Mod" and "Tube Gain Booster" - #Free VST Effects

Anything Mod is a stereo audio effect plugin and a project to make it grow, so far it is a reverse delay, a ring modulator, a waveshaper, a comb filter, and a glitch generator, but it's not a multieffect in the standard meaning.
Multieffect usually means that you have more than one effect module in the same plugin, they are separate modules with a fixed routing or assignable at best, while in Anything Mod the effects interact with each other, both in the audio path and in the parameters settings. That makes it a unique kind of modulator.

#Musicproduction: Audified releases "STA Phaser" as a #free member of the Summing Tube Amplifier Effects Family

This effect is comprised of an emulation of analog phaser effect and Summing Tube Amplifier (STA) which mixes the wet and dry signal as well as it adds a nonlinear distortion resulting in more vintage sound. Primarily, this effect is designed to be used as an insert effect to fully exploit the summing circuit. The plugin has also a “Wet only” option when only the effected signal is processed by the tube circuit, which allows to use the plugin also in a send bus.

10 Things to do on Twitter

  1. Position your company as a thought leader
    If you have employees who are considered industry experts, give them some Twitter love when they speak at conferences, publish an article or blog post, or get recognized for an award. Tweet links to current news in your industry. This shows you keep up to date and know what’s going on outside your own four walls. Tweet content that makes you look smart and well-connected. Writing a guest post on a highly trafficked blog is a great way to garner some free company publicity, and position yourself as a thought leader.
