Working SLR camera made with 3D printer | NextGadgets.net | Cool Gadgets | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

You can make a lot of cool stuff on a 3D printer — small statues, duck feet… and many other things eventually. For now, French design student Leo Marius has harnessed the power of 3D printing to make a real SLR camera, and you can too. It’s called the OpenReflex camera because it’s completely open. All the 3D files and instructions are available online.All you need to make this camera is a 3D printer capable of using ABS plastic, a CNC tool, and a couple of inexpensive parts, like screws and a small mirror. It takes about 15 hours of 3D printing to get the necessary body components. After that, you’re looking at an hour to assemble everything. At the end of this grueling process you have a manual SLR camera with a fixed 1/60s exposure and a neat mechanical shutter....

Photoshop alternatives | Use free photo-editing software to achieve complex effects

Photoshop alternatives | Use free photo-editing software to achieve complex effects | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

Adobe’s Photoshop is the gold standard when it comes to photo-editing software – the preferred tool for many graphic designers and photographers. But many of the complex features that once only a Photoshop pro could do, can now be achieved using basic, free software that comes with your computer or downloaded from the Web. Think cropping, resizing, color adjustments, filters, red-eye removal, and automatic enhancements.

 

In fact, a lot of useful photo-editing features are built into online photo-sharing sites like Google+ and Flickr. However, what if you want to quickly apply one or two effects without having to become a Photoshop guru? We’ve found and tested a few online alternatives that won’t require you to fire up any photo-editing apps....

Curate Your Online Visual Portfolio with Dunked

"Dunked makes creating your online & mobile portfolio website super simple. Showcase your design, illustration, video and photography work on any device."

Robin Good's curator insight, June 11, 2013 3:17 AM



If you are looking for a free tool that allows you to easily create a visual portfolio of images and/or video clips, organized into categories, Dunked offers an excellent solution.


Simple, elegant and very straightforward to use, Dunked makes it easy to upload one or more pictures at a time and to arrange them on your portfolio page and into separate collections called Projects.


You can customize background, colors for all the elements on a page, fonts, logo and you can add a personalized About and Contact page.



My comments: Excellent visual portoflio tool for photographers, designers and artists of any kind. Compared to having an image or video collection on Pinterest, the difference is that the presentation style is much more elegant, and images are viewed by default at a much larger size. You also have fine control on individual text style, colors and other design elements. The absence of a bookmarklet further indicates that this tool has been designed with the photographer/artist/painter in mind and not to collect stuff found on the web.


Free to use.
