Coffee machine - Kaffeemaschine

Coffee from these small machines is awful. Water is pressed through pressed coffee with high pressure. Only little aromatics are taken. And that's going to be exuded fastly. Is that called quick & dirty? What about the relish?

3 Tactics to Increase Infuence on Your Consumer’s Complex Path to Purchase

Consumers are No Longer Predictable, and their Path to Purchase is No Longer Linear...
A decade ago, you had a fairly straightforward understanding of how your customers moved through their path to purchase. It was linear. Predictable. And consistent. But, the rapid increase of mobile and ecommerce channels has diffused the consumer’s journey into a labyrinth of shopping options. And, these consumers are now learning more, engaging faster and expecting greater value, convenience, and hyper-relevant offers catered specifcally to their needs. How you respond to this change will either accelerate or isolate your brand from the market.

#Photoshop: Make a Trendy Double Exposure Effect

You’ve probably seen this interesting effect of two or more overlapping photos on the covers of music albums, in modern magazines and in advertisements. In this tutorial we’ll create a trendy double exposure effect in Adobe Photoshop with the help of Blending Modes and Clipping Masks in a few steps. Let’s do it!
In photography and cinematography, multiple exposure is a combination of two or more exposures to create a single image. Initially, this is a technique in which the camera shutter is opened more than once to expose the film multiple times, usually to different images. However, with our modern software, we can easily recreate a similar effect in Adobe Photoshop.

#Musicproduction: Best #Free VST Instruments 2015

This is a free e-book
ViennaCC

Each VST instrument or tool we use for composing has its own learning curve, and once we pass the time it takes to learn to use a plugin, we can creatively and freely compose music.
More often, what takes longer than learning how to use a new VST plugin is finding that plugin in the first place. The Internet is filled with a huge variety of audio loops as well as top-quality VST plugins – many of which are free – but out of those, less are high quality and worth the time to learn to use.

What if the cat and the fish are normal sized and I shrink down the harbor and make it look like a toy, or scale model. This is where the idea of doing a tilt-shift effect to the photo would work well. Rather than just give you the steps (which I do), I wanted to talk through the thinking behind the image as well as a high level overview of the compositing steps.

Pan and meat - Pfanne und Fleisch

No problem if the pan is too small for the meat. Meat shrinks during roasting. I think because of the hormones in the food. Nature makes normal meat out of turbo meat from turbo animals in turbo factories. You can trick man, but not the nature.

Ist die Pfanne zum Braten von Fleisch zu klein, dann macht das nichts. Beim Braten schrumpft das Fleisch dann sowieso. Kommt wahrscheinlich von den Hormonen im Futter.

The Beatles recorded most of their material using this, and other versions of this console. The easily recognized overdriven sound of the Beatles' Revolution was created by chaining two preamps from this console.
