We also discuss what a language server is and why it matters in connecting editors and the languages they support. We also dive into various ways to be effective with VS Code including shortcuts, plugins, and more.

Designing for iOS and Android

1 Share

From Erik Kennedy who shared some tactical design advice for developers — this awesome visual guide covers the primary differences between designing for iOS and Android, including navigation, UI controls, typography, app icons, and more.

If you’re designing both an iOS and an Android (Material Design) version of an app, this guide is your new best friend 😎. We’re going to cover the most relevant differences between iOS and Android for UX/UI designers. If you’ve created an app on one platform, this is most of what you need to know to “translate” it for the other platform.

Algo – your personal VPN in the cloud

1 Share

The linked article is an excellent introduction to Algo, which is effectively a set of Ansible scripts that set up a Wireguard and IPSEC VPN for you.

Algo automatically deploys an on-demand VPN service in the cloud that is not shared with other users, relies on only modern protocols and ciphers, and includes only the minimal software you need. And it’s free.

For anyone who is privacy conscious, travels for work frequently, or can’t afford a dedicated IT department, this one’s for you.

Algo’s list of features (and anti-features) is compelling and most VPN services are terrible. 👀

Wikiview photo browser makes it easy to search through Wikimedia Commons images

1 Share

A team with German university HTW Berlin has published a new project called Wikiview, a website that makes it easy to search for images in the Wikimedia Commons. With Wikiview, anyone can search for images related to a subject, then narrow down the results by adding other search terms, such as looking specifically for photos of old cars that are located outdoors.

Wikiview enables users to zoom in and out of the 2D image map used to present grid-based image results. When the user selects a particular image, it appears in a viewer sidebar alongside its title, the date it was taken, the license under which it was published, its author, and links to both its Wikimedia page and to similar image results. Users are able to directly download the image from Wikiview.

Wikiview is one of multiple sites that enables users to more easily find images shared under various licenses. Earlier this year, for example, Creative Commons launched an overhauled CC Search tool that serves as a portal to more than 300 million photos.

Adobe's #ProjectAboutFace can detect when portraits are altered and undo the edits

1 Share

Adobe has collaborated with researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, to develop a new tool to detect when photos have been digitally altered using Photoshop’s Face-Aware Liquify tool and adjust them back to the original image.

The prototype tool, codenamed ‘Project About Face,’ will pore over an image pixel-by-pixel and create a heat map showing where it believes the image is most likely altered. From there, the edits can effectively be undone to show what the original image looked like.

According to Adobe, the tool is nearly twice as accurate as humans at detecting when a photograph has been altered. In its testing, Project About Face was able to detect altered images with 99-percent accuracy compared to the 53-percent accuracy of the human test group.

Since this only works with images edited inside Photoshop with its Face-Aware Liquify tool, the practical application isn’t widespread, but it’s a neat teaser nonetheless for future fake-detection methods.

Project About Face is just one of the many ‘Sneaks’ Adobe teased this year at Adobe MAX. Like many of the Sneaks, it’s unlikely we’ll see this tool available anytime soon, but it goes to show the growing possibilities of Adobe’s Sensei AI.
