[D]esigner Amber Share decided to create a series of hilarious travel posters for all 61 parks, featuring the Internet’s funniest, snarky comments.
Share came up with the idea for her Subpar Parks series as a way to “put a positive, fun spin on such a negative mindset.” Each retro-style poster design features colorful graphic renditions of America’s mountains, lakes, and forests. However, each pretty scene is matched with hand lettering that spells out the bad reviews.
Happy St. Paddy’s, all! Getting stuck inside sucks, but happily a great new Ronan Boyle book just dropped from Thomas Lennon & John Hendrix! Even our grumpy 12yo Finn (a huge fan of the first installment) had to smile at that—Begorrah! 😌☘️
In response to requests from educators, Adobe has announced that it will be providing free at-home access to Creative Cloud apps to those students who usually only have access on-campus. It’s one way the software maker is trying to empower students to keep learning amid campus closures caused by the novel coronavirus. […]
Higher education and K-12 institutions that pay for on-campus access for their students simply need to request “temporary ‘at-home’ access” through this link. Once verified, access will be granted, free of charge, through May 31st, 2020.
Good God, something like 777 million kids who’d normally be in school are stuck at home right now. Our fam is among those affected, so my blogging will be hit-or-miss as we try to figure out what to do with the Micronaxx.
TBH the last thing I want is for coronavirus talk to infect (ahem) my escapist art-posting, but I’ve gotta give Markus Hofstätter props for the sheer effort he put into making this 7-frame animation with archaic tintype printing (or as my wife asked, lacking all context, “Why did that dude put a picture into a panini press?”). You can watch his process from the beginning (and check out PetaPixel for the full story), or just jump to the finished animation at the end:
Tapping on a given item will show the dish, along with pictures also taken by customers. You can then choose to search for that dish to see what it is, or use Google Translate to display it in your native language.
Hmm—apparently Ricoh (maker of my O.G. Theta 360 camera) is planning to spin off a new company to make tiny, consumer cams. I wonder, do normal folks see enough value in making tiny planets or in posting interactive panos to make this take off? I guess we shall see.
For this particular project, Shiryaev used the stabilized version of the footage that NASA itself released in July of 2019 as a baseline. He then fed it through the same AI software that he’s been using to upscale all of the videos he’s released: Google’s DAIN interpolate frames and achieve 60fps, and Topaz Labs’ Gigapixel AI to upscale each frame and achieve 4K resolution.
Now you can search for your Creative Cloud Assets and attach public links to Synced files, Libraries, and Mobile creations without leaving Gmail. You can also save any attachments received in Gmail directly to Creative Cloud in a few clicks.
