Image Color Summarizer - RGB and HSV Image Statistics NEW I have added load restrictions (in testing) on this service to avoid outages. You are limited to analyzing one image at a time. This service, like all my online color resources, is absolutely free to use with no restrictions or ads. If you find it useful, your donation would be a way to say thanks. the image color summarizer The colour summarizer will produce descriptive colour statistics for an image. Some of the questions the summarizer will answer are what is the average color hue, saturation and value in my image? The color clustering function tells you the representative colors of the image and shows you how the pixels in the image partition into groups. The method works well on images with relatively well-defined color boundaries and not well on images with smooth gradients that transition across a large range of colors (in hue, brightness and saturation). If you want to find specific colors or snap colors to reference colors then clustering isn't for you. get started already issues

Color Psychology in Marketing: The Ultimate Guide Color psychology in marketing and branding is more than just one-sentence explanations of what each color represents. It’s true that specific colors can influence the choices of consumers. Color can affect the brain’s emotion sensors in many ways. But the psychology of color is not that simple. A sentence like “yellow represents creativity and happiness” is not exactly color psychology—it’s a generalized association. In reality, “yellow” can have different connotations depending on how it’s used, what color it’s placed next to and what tone of yellow it is. Yellow is not always happy and creative—sometimes, it’s sickly and pale. As an example, check out Visme’s subscriber popup below: Visme's popup opt-in image The yellow in it is very strong—it catches your attention and makes you feel empowered. To better understand why using the right colors is so important in content marketing, it’s best to first review the basics.

How Minimalism Improves Training Effectiveness A steely Edwardian writer once gave this advice to his self-indulgent peers: Whenever you feel an impulse to perpetrate a piece of exceptionally fine writing, obey it – wholeheartedly – and delete it before sending your manuscript to press. Murder your darlings. Decades later, William Faulkner abbreviated it to “kill your darlings”; healthy advice for any writer and for instructional designers or training content developers. More to Do, Less to Read Minimalism brings great value to the training experience. Easier Said Than Done? It’s tempting for a writer to include certain elements in training content due to many factors: deep involvement in the subject; a kitchen-sink approach is faster than paring down to the essentials; or plain old client – and supervisor – pressure. But a minimalist approach has serious rewards for trainers: Here’s what an effective minimalist approach looks like for training: Step 1: Form learning objectives around end goals. Keep the Muscle, Lose the Fat Prioritize.

¿Por qué le tengo que dar un PDF a la imprenta? Impresor de cabecera ¿Por qué le tengo que dar un PDF a la imprenta? Dani Matoses, nuestro impresor de cabecera en Impresum, nos explica las ventajas de enviar a la imprenta un PDF antes que otro tipo de archivos que pueden generar más errores de impresión._ Hace poco me preguntaba un amigo si era correcto que un PDF de una página A4 pesara tan solo 8 MB. En pocas palabras, el motor de generación de PDF de Adobe remuestrea esa imagen para quitarle toda la información sobrante y además comprime, con lo que si elegimos la opción de PDFX obtendremos un PDF con el material necesario para que sea impreso. Esta opción es una de las múltiples cosas que al hacer un PDFX, el estándar para artes gráficas, nos brinda este motor de generación de PDF de Adobe. ¿Y qué otras sorpresitas me puedo encontrar? Si el trabajo es de poca complejidad y tenemos muy claro cómo va a ser la impresión del trabajo, no tendremos problemas.
