The first copy of the photo book is good looking and beautifully printed, so I think it is time to make it public and available for sale online in Blurb.com. One can pick up a copy of the book with soft cover, hardcover with or without dust jacket.
Frankly, I don’t expect to sell any, but the experience in learning how to publish a book on demand is great.
I think most of us, Twitter users, are fed up with Twitter’s performance and reliability … but at least they show a good graphic with the error message. Is that the ROR performance issue again, or the Database, or just the architecture ?
Even after 5 weeks and countless hours of video footages, the photos of the tragedy are still very shocking. A photo exhibition that not to be missed … but only last to 22nd June in APM shopping mall.
This beauty finally arrived from the mail and it looks absolutely gorgeous. It took altogether 4 weeks to finish and here are the details:
- Day 01 – download the free software BookSmart from Blurb.com
- Day 02 – starts the “design” of the book … and it lasts 15 days, as I needed to select the photos, add some, remove some; and searched the information of the place thru the web. It took a long time !!
- Day 15 – upload the finished book to the web site and place order
- Day 28 – it’s here !!
Let’s say you have a boring photo with some small cars and people … can we do some tricks to improve it ?
The following is a photo taken in a recent cruise tour to Taiwan.
Then an area with the objects were selected; invert the selection; apply Gaussian blur; and then adjust the brightness & contrast of the whole photo to make the following “model” picture.
What do you think ? 😎
Last year Paul Pott was the ordinary people that won the Britain’s Got Talent and George Sampson was an unlucky young man who could not make it to the semi-final. But just like the dancing version of Rocky, George enrolled to the BGT again this year and won !! He’s only 14 years old … and that’s what he told BBC:
Don’t let anybody get in the way – if you stay strong and determined, it’ll pay off so just keep your head down and focus on it … it’s just determination.
I am sure you can search his GTD semi-final and final video on the net … but here is the round 1 video, I absolutely love it.
One of Beyond’s best songs was used recently in a big event … I can appreciate all the good intentions behind, but I just don’t know why the organizer didn’t hire a professional lyrics writer to do the job …
Anyway, we all know no one can do it better than Ka-Kui … we will remember their glorious years, we will remember Ka-Kui, always.
