Adobe Photoshop for iPad will get real layer support in the future

During the Photoshop World conference's keynote, Adobe has unveiled some details about the next generation Photoshop for iPad, that's being worked on as we speak. Despite the recent feature additions to the current version of Photoshop for iOS, that's still an 'Express' app, and for good reasons -- although quite robust, it's nowhere near as capable as the desktop software going by the same...

Google Chrome logo updated, now flatter, cuter and more balanced (pictures)

Just a week after its open-source brother Chromium had its logo summarily flattened, Chrome has followed suit. For now it's only available in the Developer channel, but presumably it will quickly percolate down to the Beta and Stable channels. There are some more images of the new logo after the break. It was originally speculated that the Chromium logo change was to differentiate it from...

Firefox 4 also crashing due to outdated graphics drivers

After reading a new post from Mozilla, it appears as though Google isn't the only browser maker having a hard time with outdated graphics drivers. As Mozilla inches closer and closer to the final release of Firefox 4 -- which, of course, packs hardware accelerated rendering kung fu -- the company's Benoit Jacob has posted a plea to its users. Please update your graphics drivers. Like Google,...

Google saddened by Chrome crashes due to outdated video drivers

Gamers and other enthusiasts know the importance of keeping their video card's drivers current, but it's not something the vast majority of the computing public pays any attention to. If the computer is running OK, there's no need to update drivers, right? As it turns out, there's a very good reason to update: your old driver might be causing your Web browser to crash excessively. That's...

Google Image Search now lets you filter vector-only results

Google Image Search just got a bit fancier: You can now filter search results to only include SVG files. SVG files, which stand for Scalable Vector Graphics, are files you can easily edit and change without loss of definition. If you've been following our Corel tutorials, they might have given you some ideas about the power of vector graphics. Being able to use Google to find such files...

CorelDRAW video tutorial: Add detail to any image using the Mesh Fill tool

This is the third of four weekly CorelDRAW demos/tutorials. The previous two were about making a Polaroid-like image and vectorizing a simple logo. This week's video is more of a simple demo than a tutorial: One of CorelDRAW's coolest features is the Mesh Fill. Those of you familiar with Adobe Illustrator will recognize the tool instantly: It allows you to add a great level of detail to...

CorelDRAW tutorial: Trace, vectorize and modify a simple logo (video)

This is the second CorelDRAW tutorial in a series of four. Last week we looked at how to make a Polaroid-like image, and this week I'd like to show you how to vectorize a simple logo. I use the Android logo in the video, but you can do this with pretty much any logo other simple graphic. There are many reasons why you might like to vectorize an existing logo. Perhaps you need to modify it,...

CorelDRAW video tutorial: Make a Polaroid-like image in five minutes

When most people hear the words "vector graphics", the first thing that comes to mind is Adobe Illustrator. While Illustrator is a wonderful application, it's certainly not the only game in town: I've been using CorelDRAW for several years now, and I just love it. I'm not a graphics pro by any stretch of the imagination, but I do need to turn out a few pretty pixels here and there for my day...

Double Exposure Pro photo blending app for iPhone

The iPhone has packed a pretty good camera ever since the iPhone 3GS was launched, but it was the iPhone 4's five-megapixel camera that really brought out the photographer in iOS. Now that we know we can take decent pictures on an iPhone, photo modification apps have really come into their own, and Double Exposure Pro is no exception. Essentially allowing you to combine two photos into one,...

WebGL has arrived in Google Chrome Beta; get your gaming hardware ready!

Okay, so we're not quite at the point where you're going to be playing the next Crysis sequel in your browser, but still -- the arrival of WebGL in Chrome's beta channel is kind of a big deal. Apart from being able to play around with cool demos like the ones offered up by Google in its official announcement, WebGL is another important step in bringing more desktop-like functionality to the Web....

Xbench performance benchmarking for Macs

Computer benchmarking applications abound for Windows machines, but what if you want to judge the capabilities of your current Mac against one you're considering buying? Though I'm in that situation far less often than I'd prefer, when I do need to measure the relative performance of two different Macs, I turn to Xbench. Xbench is a free performance benchmarking utility that measures the following...

SVG-edit is a surprisingly powerful in-browser vector image editor

Watch out, Inkscape! As Web browsers become increasingly powerful, it is only a matter of time until a free browser-based vector graphics editor pops up that is powerful enough to compete with a desktop application -- and SVG-edit may well become that editor. Currently in version 2.5, this open-source project was surprisingly responsive and powerful on my aging Firefox 3.6.8. The one thing I...

Easy Image Modifier provides free, easy batch image processing

Easy Image Modifier is a simple piece of portable freeware that can rotate, resize, convert, and rename JPG, PNG, and BMP files. I tested it with a bunch of large JPGs (about 1.5MB each). I just dragged the JPGs over it and dropped them. Then, I set the Resize option, set a destination, and clicked the huge button up on top (the one that says "Drop images here." Once you drop them, its text...

FFFFOUND! RANDOM helps you spend even more time with ffffound

FFFFOUND RANDOM is a one-trick pony: You go there, and it serves up a totally random ffffound page. Ffffound, which I've covered before, is an awesome invite-only design and photography community. The invite-only part applies to posting stuff, but everybody can gawk at the pages, which is what I usually do. So while I'm not a member, my claim to fame is that my DLS post about ffffound is the...

Mugtug offers beautiful, powerful sketching and image editing for the Web

Mugtug is one name (and website) for two distinct, and equally impressive, image editing/creation applications: Darkroom is a sophisticated, in-page photo "adjustment" software. Note that I don't use the word "editing." That's because you can't really make selections (unless you want to crop or mirror). You can, however, adjust any image parameter (such as white balance, exposure, contrast, or...
