The 9 Best Browser-Based Photo Editing Tools

The 9 Best Browser-Based Photo Editing Tools | Business Initiatives | Scoop.it

Picture this: You need to quickly fix an image and you loathe the thought of launching your desktop app. Or—same situation—except you’re not in front of your own computer. Do you leave that poor, underexposed shot as is? Or just forget about it? Of course not.

 

Online image editors, which operate directly in the browser, are there to rescue any shot quickly and easily. Here are nine online imaging tools that can perform photographic heavy lifting for you on any platform. Upload images directly from the computer, pull them off your social networks and send them back there, or retrieve them from online storage sites like Flickr and Picasa.

What's the Difference Between Bacon, Pancetta, and Prosciutto?  Ingredient Intelligence | Business Initiatives | Scoop.it
Bacon, pancetta, prosciutto: These three pork products look alike, taste somewhat similar, and even get regularly substituted for each other. It's no wonder we get them confused! In actuality, they have very distinctive characteristics that make each ideal for different kinds of preparations. Here's the scoop on each one and their differences.

This Map Shows The Millions Of Jobs Linked Across The Global Economy

This Map Shows The Millions Of Jobs Linked Across The Global Economy | Business Initiatives | Scoop.it

A study by University of Sydney researchers produced this map showing the flow of jobs and wages around the world.

 

In Australia’s case, China has 5 million people just to make goods for Australians.

 

The workers, on low wages, support Australia’s lifestyle.

For example, a computer bought in Australia (average domestic wage US$59,700) might be assembled in China (average domestic wage $US2,700) and Thailand ($US2,100) using electronic circuits made in the Philippines ($US1,700).

@Paydiant anticipates In three to five years consumers will be able to conduct half of transactions through phones, without juggling a boatload of different apps, a scanner, or a photograph of a barcode.


@PayPal is even looking at a completely hands-free, friction-free experience.


With Apple and @Google looking to enhance and own their customer experience across all their tools and devices, can you imagine a time when credit cards will no longer be needed?

Net Blow-Up Yokohama: An Inflatable, Interactive Structure

Net Blow-Up Yokohama: An Inflatable, Interactive Structure | Business Initiatives | Scoop.it

The Numen/For Use guys are at it again. Known for their fun, playful, interactive structures, the Croatian-Austrian collective has recently gone inflatable.

Their latest installation in Yokohama looks like a carnival Moonwalk gone wild. The stylized cloud-like object has nets inside connected to its inner lining that expand and become taut as the blob is blown up. The exterior membrane is sheer enough that when lit from within, and it acts as a projection screen for the activity inside, while the nets provide climbing and tumbling surfaces on multiple levels.
