wordpress-logo2

For some years are depopulating within the blog icons for sharing 2.0. Risquotono rightly quite successful because in this way the webmaster has the opportunity to make more easily visible their own blog giving some possibilities, negate the prima, Sharing the average user. Among other things, does not weigh down the page and the icons are beautiful to look at.

In a nutshell, it is a small bar to the bottom article containing some of the icons for the most used services sharing the web 2.0 (I can see an example in this article at bottom of page). You acknowledge that the logo of the service that he uses (facebook, twitter, stumble, etc..) and the process of sharing is immediate, we do not need intermediaries.

Il plugin Resynthesizer per Gimp

finale3

Who said that PhotoShop always comes before Gimp? The plugin we are talking about today was developed natively for Gimp, was then invented something similar to PhotoShop.

Maybe someone does not play the new plugin "Content aware filling" per PhotoShop. Well, "Resynthesizer" is an algorithm developed as a research project of the University 2001 subsequently led to plugin for Gimp long before that were created "Content aware filling". But let's start from the beginning. Start by saying that "Resynthesizer" is a plugin that fully automatic removes by selection the objects in the picture if placed on a plot, filling the space Missing the selection with the same color of the background, trying to keep the texture uniform. This plugin can be very useful for example if we were to touch up the photo of a sunset sky with a pole in the foreground.

8 WordPress plugin that will leave you more’ do without

wordpress-logo2

In today's article we see some useful plugins for WordPress I have made my life easier in the composition of the blog. Obviously the list not describe, and omit some plugins as important as "Akismet" because they already exist by default to every WordPress installation (not because it is useful, but because its benefits are undeniable).

WP Super Cache

It is one of the plugins in my opinion the most useful ever created for WordPress. WP Super Cache on fast access to visitors pages, creates a file HTML cache from the page visited PHP actually decreasing the use of resources on the server. In this way we have a dual advantage: User load the page faster and the server save energy.

Tutorial: Perspective correction (the linee cadenti) with Gimp

Finished work

In this tutorial we deal with correct perspective a photo with Gimp. Often (especially in the narrow streets) having to take pictures of monuments or facades of tall buildings, having available a limited field for framing. It is clear that we will be closer to the monument over the photo will be "far" from axonometrically correct. The perspective correction is also called correction (or modification) the falling lines. This is because taking a picture up close to an architectural one gets the impression that the monument is falling backwards (architectural lines converge upwards.

What we will do today is "straighten" the lines of a facade, Gimp as well as we should have another couple of plugins: "MathMap" and "FX-Foundry".
