Tab Completion Tab Completion This is a basic sketch of a CSSOM Values API, where rather than returning strings for everything, we use proper JS objects. No more parsing of "5px" for you! Requirements Must faithfully and directly reflect the property grammar in an obvious way. Common Types of Property Changes As CSS grows and changes, we alter and extend existing properties in various ways. Breaking apart a complex property into a shorthand with sub-properties.Turning a property with a single value into a list-valued property that accepts a comma-separated list.Adding more terms to the grammar of an existing property, such as taking a property that accepts a <length> and making it <length> || keyword, so it goes from 1 value to 1 or 2 values. Proposal Sketch We define an additional accessor for style data, provisionally called .css. The value of each property is an array containing one or more CSSValue objects. For example, here's box-shadow: That is: el.css.boxShadow[0] = 5px; Issue: using a value list is kinda clumsy.
At An Event Apart in Atlanta GA 2014, Mat Marquis walked through the history of developing a responsive images solution for the Web and the solution coming to browsers soon. Here's my notes from his talk The Past, Present, and Future of Responsive Images: Responsive Web design is made up of three things: a flexible grid, media queries, and flexible images & media. But as developers we've also made responsive design synonymous with large web sites.One of the most common critiques against responsive Web design is that it creates large (file size) Web sites, thereby slowing Web pages down.The average Web page sizes are 1.6MB. Working Through Options Images and media can be made fluid by setting max-width to 100%. A Final Solution Other Techniques Compressive images allows you to compress images a lot at large sizes, then allow browsers to scale down to the right size.Users saving compressive images get blurry assets if they download the compressed size image.

On Monday, we published an article on Picturefill 2.01, a perfect polyfill for responsive images. Today’s article complements Tim Wright’s article and explains exactly how we can use the upcoming <picture> element and srcset, with simple fallbacks for legacy browsers. There is no reason to wait for responsive images2; we can actually have them very, very soon3. — Ed. “Everything I’ve said so far could be summarized as: make pages which are adaptable.… Designing adaptable pages is designing accessible pages. And perhaps the great promise of the web, far from fulfilled as yet, is accessibility, regardless of difficulties, to information.”– John Allsopp, A Dao of Web Design4 Images5 are some6 of the most7 important8 pieces9 of information10 on the web11, but over the web’s 25-year history, they haven’t been very adaptable at all. HTML authors began to really feel these limitations when high-resolution screens and responsive layouts hit the web like a one-two punch. That is about to change.

Image Editing & Retouching

From the average Joe, or Jane, to the top luxury brands, everybody with a share in the eCommerce pie today, has ensured that they are visible on the internet and the mobile. As eCommerce sales gain bigger space in the overall retail market, where eCommerce accounted for over $300 billion of total retail sales, in 2015, more and more retailers are moving over from information cataloguing to experience cataloguing. The experience catalogue, in turn, is driven by design as much as visuals. Image retouching and enhancement no longer serves the singular purpose of illustrating the product. Nearly everybody who has seen it has been wowed by the home page of Etsy, where a lot of small shop owners use photographs of their products, taken against muted colors, with their smartphones. A study by Gartner says, “By 2017, U.S. customers’ mobile engagement behavior will drive mobile commerce revenue in the U.S. to 50% of U.S. digital commerce revenue.” Visual Experience is Redefining Ecommerce Space - Are You Poised to Deal with the Change?

How to create a system image in Windows 10 One thing that's noticeably missing from the new Windows 10 Settings menu is the system image backup utility. A system image backup is basically an exact copy ("image") of a drive -- in other words, you can use a system image to completely restore your computer, settings and all, in the event of a PC disaster. Microsoft introduced the system image utility in Windows 7, and then tried to hide it in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. It's still hidden in the Windows 10 Technical Preview, but the Recovery section of the Update & recovery tab does mention system images (under "Advanced startup"), so I hope that the system image utility will remain a backup option when Windows 10 officially launches. Enlarge Image At the moment, this is how you can create a system image in Windows 10: 1. Enlarge Image 2. 3. To use your system image to restore your PC, open up the new Windows 10 Settings menu and go to Update & recovery.
How to revive your Windows 10 installation with System Image Recovery In a recent series of blog posts, I've shown you how to reset your Windows 10 system using the Keep My Files option and the Remove Everything option. While the latter will allow you to essentially start from scratch and the former will allow you to install a new copy of the operating system while retaining your data, you may also want to create a backup of your full system—data and applications—just in case you encounter a catastrophic hard disk failure. If you do, you'll be glad to know that the tried-and-true System Image tool still exists in Windows 10. As long as you have created a system image of your hard disk, you can use the System Image Recovery tool from the Recovery Drive to restore your entire system in the event of a hard disk failure. Now, keep in mind that for this type of backup to be truly effective, you need to regularly create new system images so that you'll have a recent version of your system if you need to recover it. What you need Creating a system image Figure A
A Recovery Drive lets you boot your system and easily access a number of recovery and troubleshooting tools to revive a failing Windows 10 system. If you haven't done so yet, you need to create a Windows 10 Recovery Drive. That way, you'll be prepared should you encounter a problem with your Windows 10 installation. In Windows 10, you can create a Recovery Drive on a USB flash drive as well as on an optical disc. While both procedures produce the same recovery tool, they are created from different user interfaces. Caveat Regardless of whether you are creating a Recovery Drive on a USB flash drive or on an optical disc, it is important to remember that a Recovery Drive is bit specific. Using a USB flash drive The USB flash drive you use will become a dedicated Recovery Drive—you won't be able to use it for anything else. To launch the USB flash drive version of the Recovery Drive creation tool, open the Control Panel and type Recovery in the search box.
