[[html]]<img alt="Separate+ brings CMYK capability to Gimp" data-caption="Separate+ brings CMYK capability to Gimp" data-credit="Ian Pullen" data-credit-link="" src="" title="Separate+ brings CMYK capability to Gimp"/>Gimp has become an ever more powerful image editing tool and it can now offer a viable alternative to Adobe Photoshop for Graphic Designers who are operating on a budget. While lacking the raw power of Photoshop, for most jobbing Graphic Designers, it can offer enough of the necessary features for it to be of daily use, perhaps alongside Scribus and Inkscape.<br><br>There is an introduction to Gimp in this Suite101 Overview of the Free Image Editor Gimp.<br><br>In native form, Gimp's biggest weakness for many Graphic Designers is its lack of support for the production of CMYK images, which are required for commercial press production of printed materials. By default Gimp functions in the RGB color space, which is fine for the production of online graphics or producing materials for printing on a desk top printer.<br><br>Adding CMYK Capability to Gimp<br><br>The Separate+ plug-in for Gimp can bring the ability to save images as Tiff files with CMYK separations included. The plug-in is offered for free download by Yoshinori Yamakawa from the Yellowmagic website and is a development of another plug-in initially produced by Alastair M. Robinson.<br><br>The Separate+ plug-in doesn't bring true CMYK color space editing to Gimp in the way that Adobe Photoshop users will be familiar with and actually works by converting an RGB image into a file that contains 4 layers to represent the 4 ink colors. This image can then be saved as a TIFF for use in a DTP application.<br><br>Installing the Separate+ Plug-in for Gimp<br><br>After downloading the latest version from the Yellowmagic website, which is linked to above, the files should be extracted from the Zip file. Included among those files is a README file which contains information on how to install the plug-in.<br><br>The plug-in has a dependency on another file called liblcms-1.dll and if a user's version of Gimp doesn't include this file, it can also be downloaded from the Yellowmagic site.<br><br>Using the Separate+ Plug-in for Gimp<br><br>When successfully installed, the Separate+ plug-in adds a new entry to the Image menu labelled simply Separate that offers four sub-options. The two most important options are Separate and Save. The former opens the dialogue that offers several options before converting an RGB image to CMYK and the resulting image then can be saved as a TIFF using the latter option.<br><br>While the plug-in offers color profile management options and soft proofing, most Graphic Designers will use the default settings unless advised otherwise by the end printer.<br><br>The Separate+ plug-in for Gimp extends the capabilities of the application for users who need to produce materials for press reproduction, though it doesn't have the full ease of use and flexibility that Adobe Photoshop users will be used to.<br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

How Does Web Application Development Benefit A Business? - 28 Dec 2015 10:18


[[html]]Average: <br><br>Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)<br><br>A website on the internet can help a business execute a number of functions such as making sales, gathering new customers, interacting with existing customers, etc. However, the use of websites is often time-consuming, especially when they are used over devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs. Websites contain large sections of content which are often unnecessary for customers who are looking to make purchases or interact with the representatives of the company.<br><br>On the other hand, the use of web applications can help to make this process less time consuming and more convenient. These applications do not contain much text, and the concentration is more towards offering users direct access to the features and functions of their desire. Hence, they often prove to be more useful for people than company websites. Moreover, such apps can also help to benefit businesses due to the increased usage of mobile devices, where these apps have a much lesser loading-time than websites.<br><br><img src="" width="396" /><br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Today, most people access the internet using their smartphone devices or other such mobile devices. The longer load-time of websites can lead to increased frustrations and greater customer dissatisfaction, whereas the shorter load-time and ease-of-use of applications helps to enhance customer satisfaction. Therefore, it is of critical importance for every small and large business to ensure that they have a web application developed for the services so that their customers are able to access the functions of their websites with greater ease. This, however, does not undermine the importance of websites in any manner!<br><br>Now, in order to get a fully-functional app developed for their business, it is best for a company to hire the services of a Web Application Development company. This will ensure that the development of the application is executed by professionals with the capability, expertise and the experience in the development of such apps. However, there are so many such companies in every major country in the world that it can often become very confusing and challenging for a company to hire the right set of professionals. Hence, when looking to hire such professionals, companies must ensure the following:<br><br>The professionals must develop the apps in a manner that offers the business software solutions Singapore to their varying needs.The professionals must make use of an innovative approach in order to achieve the best results.The application must be developed while keeping in mind the benefit of both parties involved.The professionals must have an amicable attitude to maintain a working relationship with their client base in the long run.<br><br>After all, web applications have to be updated and modified on a regular basis, and the services of the professional team might be needed in the future as well. Hence, it is important to hire an apps development company that offers services of supreme quality. In order to hire such a company, it is critical to conduct the right amount of research so that hiring the wrong company can be avoided. It must be kept in mind that the experience and the satisfaction levels of customers would highly depend on the ease-of-use and the functionality of the apps developed!<br><br><a href=''></a><br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Web Development Will Continue to Evolve in 2014 | Himanshu Sareen - 25 Dec 2015 05:59


[[html]]Throughout 2013, smartphone and tablet iterations altered how programmers and web development companies approached building web applications. In many ways this past year was a transition point. Brands, designers, and developers were finally acclimating their skills to the evolving mobile medium.<br><br>Responsive web design (RWD) was arguably the leading trend in web and mobile development over the past two years. And HTML5 continued to slowly but surely provide the means to "write once, and run anywhere." Now that the industry has become familiar with designing and coding for mobile users in addition to PC users, the line between 'mobile' and 'desktop' experiences is blurring.<br><br>Smarter Transitions<br><br>Mobile apps have contributed to a web design renaissance. The influence of iOS and Android designers on the way web developers go about building web applications is undeniable. Specifically when it comes to performing functions and interacting with a website's interface, developers will focus more on smooth web transitions that replicate a mobile app experience. Seamless performance with a visually pleasing interface is now a standard expectation thanks to tablets and smartphones. <br><br>With Retina screens and the introduction of 4K resolution, designers are focusing more than ever on seamless transitions that accompany website functionality. This applies to desktops and mobile devices alike. Spurred by advances in screen resolution, web development techniques and touch screen technology, users in 2014 will expect picture perfect visual aesthetics to accompany every function. With such increased screen clarity, users will spot the slightest of flaws. Throughout 2014 expect websites to seem much more app-like.<br><br>Blurring the Line Between OS and Browser<br><br>This past year saw the release of two significant milestones when it comes to browsers. Google and Mozilla released variants of their popular browsers as full-fledged operating systems. For the first time, consumers can choose to run their entire PC experience through Chrome and Firefox. With the rise in popularity of Chromebooks there is a new standard being set for who can offer a great operating system.<br><br>In 2014, expect the web browser to evolve into a new beast entirely. HTML5 web development for instance, can effectively port a console quality video game experience directly through a web browser. No plugins and no downloads required, just direct access to an immersive digital experience powered by a browser.<br><br>Renewed Focus on Go-Live<br><br>Following the international debacle that was the launch of, brands and organizations will place a major focus on flawless go-lives throughout 2014. Quality assurance processes and testing procedures became talking points on the 24 hour news cycle. For the first time ever, web development processes were engrained in the public. It was as if the United States had failed to reach the moon.<br><br><img src="" width="337" /><br><br>With such a disastrous precedent for a failed launch, companies will avoid any and all comparisons to the launch. By focusing on the non-glamorous processes like user acceptance testing and QA testing, brands will use the go-live phase to further exemplify their operational prowess. It may not be as exciting as a hackathon, but it will help ensure a more seamless launch and avoid damage to a brand's reputation.<br><br>A Focus on Typography<br><br>Websites and web applications will continue to adapt to mobile screen sizes. Tablets and smartphones have comparably different reading experiences and navigation than standard PC web experiences. One of the major issues with websites and web applications viewed via mobile, stems from the difficulty of reading text. To help solve this challenge in 2014, web developers will begin experimenting with the size, location, and layout of type-based content.<br><br>The trend of flat design, brought about by Windows 8 and iOS7, has resulted in a new take on text-content and its relation to web design. Brands like Audi have gone so far as to design their own custom font. Throughout 2014 expect to see websites where text based content is a focal point of the user experience.<br><br>Web Development In the Post-PC Era<br><br>Although we're progressing from PCs it does not mean that they're dead. Now that developers are acclimated to mobile web experiences, expect those lessons to emerge in the web development trends used this year. In my role as the CEO of web development company Icreon Tech, I work with clients on a daily basis who express interest in more immersive web experiences that stand out in today's app driven world. In 2014, the web will exhibit many signs that show we are in a post-PC era.<br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Web Application Basics and Definition - 25 Dec 2015 04:37


[[html]]<img style="float:right;margin:10px;border:none;" src="" width="340" /><br><br>Simply put, a web application is a software or program that a user accesses through a web browser using the internet or a network. Most people who used a computer are already familiar with applications and programs as for sure, their computers have locally installed software.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>A good example of locally installed software is Microsoft Office. A desktop program (other term for local program) is different from a web application as local programs only require to be installed on the computer and that the PC meets the minimum system requirement of the particular program. Once these two conditions are met, any user of the computer can launch and use the local application (of course this is assuming they have permissions to use the program).<br><br>Web apps on the other hand are applications that can run on any remote computer as long as that computer has a web browser and network connection. Some web applications require or can only be accessed on specific web browsers, while others require browser add ins or browser languages (e.g Java). Needless to say, web apps are dependent on the network connection speed on which the remote computer is using.<br><br>Web apps can be simple or complex. Simple web apps have been around even before the popularity boom of the internet. Examples of simple web apps are message boards and the PERL scripting language. However, as networking technology evolve, more complex web apps are developed as many businesses and organizations saw that they can maximize this technology potential. Nowadays, complex web apps not only involve file sharing but sharing of whole database, spread sheets, etc<br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

While the inspirational cheeseburger is debatable, a day trip to Cabbage Key, Florida, is worth the trip.<br><br>Reasons to Plan a Day Trip to Cabbage Key<br><br>Cabbage Key is a Southwest Florida island in Pine Island Sound and only accessible by boat so a visit is worth bragging rights. Visitors can navigate their own boat, buddy up to a boat owner, take a water taxi, or hop on a cruise either from Captiva Island, Pine Island or Punta Gorda. Cabbage Key is also accessible by helicopter or seaplane. There are no roads on the 100-acre island just winding paths through tropical foliage and along residences.<br><br>Cabbage Key is home to historical intrigue. The island was purchased by playwright and novelist Mary Roberts Rinehart in 1938 as a wedding gift for her son and sold in 1944. Cabbage Key Inn and Restaurant sits atop a 38-foot Calusa Indian shell mound and next to the inn is the Historical Cabbage Key Water Tower dating back to the 1930s. Its 41 steps lead to a birds eye view of Pine Island Sound.<br><br>The inn is literally dripping in wealth. Aptly named the Dollar Bill Bar, thousands of dollar bills, most signed by previous guests, are taped to the restaurants walls and ceiling. One story says a fisherman taped a dollar bill on the wall in case he had a dry fishing day and could return to at least a dollar. Whether true or not others followed his lead and annually innkeepers Phyllis and Rob Wells donate the fallen bills to area charities which have totaled as much as $10,000.<br><br>Cheeseburgers in paradise satisfy the palate and the view is equally fantastic with palm trees framing panoramic scenes of Pine Island Sound. An outdoor seating area is the most popular and the screened porch is second choice. During season, between February and June, the restaurant estimates to serve between 650 and 700 people a day.<br><br>Cheeseburgers ($7.99) are not served with french fried potatoes as Jimmy Buffett sang but with choice of cole slaw or potato salad. And no draft beer, as Buffett sang. Beers are served either by the can or bottle. Homemade key lime pie and mud pie are large enough to share. In addition to burgers the restaurant is recognized for its fresh seafood selection and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.<br><br>Planning Day Trip to Cabbage Key<br><br>Following are four cruise companies either offering scheduled trips or water taxi service. Advance reservations are required.<br><br>King Fisher Fleet from Fishermens Village in Punta Gorda, offers full-day excursions to Cabbage Key Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
