Photoshop: Frequency Separation (Malay)

In the midst of me trying to get back into photography, i went overboard by trying to do manipulation

Topic? easy retouching using Separation Frequency. Hail to all those video and tutorials on the net that shows how the overall process is done in less time than the manual blur-layer-highlight-blur-brushes-merge-repeat process that used to take long times to do

Here you go:

One More Year

im in the midst of changing to a bigger (hopefully better) hosting that is located locally, so site might be offline for a few days or so.

oh btw, i officially, but not permanently, am off from that bloody addiction called facebook. *sigh* what a relief (so far). it is for an apparent reason of real-life-first basis that i do this, as a trial; to see how much does that platform changes how i live my daily life. will be blogging more here i guess. back to oldskool style.

writer’s block. but at least i’m not snooping around, stalking and trolling people. there is too much hatred and idiotic ideas floating on said platform that i think i am beginning to be an avid believer of those sometimes-it-sounds-real kinda things. life, is less troublesome now. yes.

meh. ciao

GIFs on WhatsApp w00t w00t

whatsapp

It looks like WhatsApp will soon be able to support animated GIFs. According to the latest beta release for its iOS app, the app will be able to load and auto play GIF links right from your conversation.

According to @WABetaInfo, a Twitter account that tracks changes to WhatsApp beta updates, the latest WhatsApp version 2.16.7.1 will play GIF links. This means that you will no longer have to exit WhatsApp and open up the link on a browser just to see what your friend is sending you. The changelog also notes that the version of WhatsApp will allow users to save GIFs “as a simple image”.

Sadly though, if you were hoping to share GIFs like you do on other messengers like Facebook Messenger, you won’t be able to do so. The changelog says that you cannot directly import GIF images, only links, which will load in the conversation itself.

Other changes in WhatsApp version 2.16.7.1 for iOS include improved encryption, the ability to temporarily add a participant in a chat group, plenty of improvements, but fixes and more. Check out @WABetaInfo’s Pastebin post for the full change log.

Singapore: No More Internet In Office

Nah, GG sudah la ni?

official news stated (well, I heard this on the radio on may way to work) that Singapore will cuts off internet to their government offices, with limited access to limited people. but they can still open facebook and watch youtube or tweets via their handphones.

IIRC (if I remembered correctly) their web was hacked back in 2013, and takda orang nak tanggungjawab. so everyone gets the chilli paste on this. haha. padan muka, lets wait for this to happen to us in Malaysia also. tak lah sibuk makcik2 semua nak berjualan dan bergosipan scara online. do it on your own time, own device, I guess.

well, not much news actly, just reaching out once in a while. w00t
