Do you really need to follow the trend? Don't ever do something because it's a trend. Do things because they're good for the user's experience because that is what's best for your company and your design. Think really hard about the implications that adding a large image to your site will have and weigh the other options you have. You don't have to use this ...

The closest you'll get is the Trim… command in the Image menu.

http://www.tineye.com/ is a great reverse image search. It basically searches through the internet to find images that are identical or very similar to your own. There is no perfect 1-stop-get-all solution, but it's a start. Edit Google images also has a feature now that lets you click-and-drag an image into the search bar and it will find all similar ...

Try using Google's search by image to find the original. If you are unable to find it or the copyright about using it, you should not use it in your app to be safe.

I'd use the tool https://www.tineye.com/ to do a reverse image search. This might point you to a stock photography site or other site that probably would have more details surrounding the license.

For all intents and purposes, this is downright impossible. You can disable right click, but people can still view the source code of your page (by adding view-source: to the URL in Chrome, or just using a browser menu) and find the URL. You can use a CSS background-image instead of HTML <img>, but people can still use their browser's inspector (F12 ...

Choice of the best compression method depends on your image content. If you're trying to save image with a lots of colors and smooth transitions between them, your choice would rather be JPEG. Otherwise, if you've got some lineart, text, image with a couple of colors you should try PNG instead. Specific compression scheme, parameters, color reduction etc. ...

The chances are that it's a cachebuster - used to ensure that the url is unique (typically a random number or a time stamp) and that the image is therefore forced to be reloaded. It might be used where images are generated by the server on the fly, as an alternative to using a different actual image name every time (which has knock on implications), this ...

I would say if you want to mask propellers then you need to create a new mask in propeller form :) 1) Create a new shape with three line. Here i will create a very simple form of the propeller, you can extend it in your test 2) Now rasterize the shape layer (right mouse button click on the layer and then click on "Rasterize layer") and assign a new ...

As an alternative to the already great answers, how about adding a black div with 50% opacity behind the text? This would allow the font to work on basically any image also. div { position:absolute; top:250px; left:140px; width:500px; height:50px; background-color:black; z-index:0; opacity:0.5; } EXAMPLE

Use the Artboard tool and double click the image, the artboard size will snap to the image dimensions.

Usually, text is a smooth, solid color, which makes it easy to select with the good old-fashioned Magic Wand tool. Alternatively, marquee select (keep the boundary as close to the text as you can) will get you something. Use Select > Modify > Expand and add a few pixels to the selection. How much depends on your image, but it doesn't need to be more ...

After some fiddling around here's way that might be quicker than copying/pasting/moving. Create your popup. On a separate layer or file, create a black square that is the same size as the popup. Select it and define a new brush (Edit > Define Brush Preset). You can then discard the black square. Make your canvas fit the final size of the artwork you wish ...

Why use an inferior product when you already have MS Paint installed? In Paint, use the Select tool and select the area you wish to "drag" around. Hold Shift and hold down the left mouse button as you drag the selection around, producing the desired effect.

If you already have your banner and are wondering about the little drawings on top, then I can think of two ways of getting them: 1) Buy them online, already made. Sites like iStock or GraphicRiver offer vector illustrations with transparent backgrounds, so it's quite easy to open the files and just paste them on your banner. There are also free icons you ...

All images - everything you see - is copyrighted. Google images is not a viable search method for images to reuse. If you want to reuse images, especially those of known origin, such as Garfield, you must contact the creator and ask permission. Often permission comes with a fee.

I suspect your image mode is set to Grayscale. Change it to something else using the Image → Mode menu.

I'd say there's no quick and dirty fix for choppy lines, you just gotta recreate it using vectors. The following took me 3 minutes in Photoshop with Circles and Stroke effect: I'm not going to do it all for you, but all you need is two more half circles and you've got a shape based logo, which should scale beautifully to any size. So that's 6 circles, two ...

Another technique to try without having to recreate the propeller from scratch. Uses the images own tonal information as a layer mask. Result: I simply duplicated the image layer, made a brightness/contrast adjustment then pasted the inverted result into the original layer's layer mask.

If you can not find the source you either need to be prepared for possible legal issues or find a different photo to use.

No, it is not safe. Just because you aren't able to find and identify the copyright owner of the image doesn't mean that the copyright owner won't find your android app and identify you.

Yes, you may. I contacted Microsoft support and they confirmed this. However, I don't know how much trust I would put into a chat representative for legal concerns. So, I've provided some more information... Here is an excerpt from Microsoft's own website: Clip Art and Sample Art The End-User License Terms that accompany your software describe ...

Insert linked image Open XML editor and select the image Change the xlink:href attribute to be relative instead of absolute. For example, if your image is in the same directory as your svg file, then the value for xlink:href would look something like this: "./MyPic.jpg" Example diff: < xlink:href="file:///home/foouser/svg/20150721_210652-0.JPG" ...

In case you seem to be running Linux you may stitch the applications easily together to get the desired result. This can then also be incorporated in your batch processing script. The example below makes use of jp2a, a powerfull JPG to ASCII-art converter with many options to achieve desired results (consult the manpage). We then further process the ...

I suggest making the font bold (just a change of weight, not the font itself) and respecifying the shadow so that it defines all the edges of the letters: font-family: Raleway; font-weight:900; text-shadow: 0px 0px 3px #000; You can even combine more than one text-shadow to create a definite outline as well as a blur: text-shadow: 0px 0px 3px #000, ...

If it's a stock photo available on the web, they'll find it eventually. Especially if they know it's merely a stock photo. If you can't resell it, then your choices are clear - give a link or tell them no. The bigger question is how important is the client? Especially compared to the value of the stock photo? Trying to hold on to clients with an iron grip ...

Here are some options: Use another format other than JPEG (PNG or GIF); the results in terms of both file size and image quality will depend on the content of your image; each is better at certain kinds of content Make the image smaller in terms of pixels - this will have a very significant effect and should definitely be considered if you have control ...

To be sure.. Convert it to a real layer Activate the move-tool Choose "Move the active layer" in the settings panel for your tool Activate/select your layer Click once on the canvas Depending on circumstances, you could skip different or all steps. But if done correctly, you should now be able to move your layer with your mouse or the arrow keys! EDIT: ...
