The ShellyLib Home Page - Start ShellyLib is a small library to create shapes and textures of seashells and snails. The most prominent applications using ShellyLib are the seashell custom object for The Mops/Ayam and the Shell Laboratory. The Shell Laboratory is real fun to play with. Just drag some sliders and see your changes immediately take effect in a realtime calculated and OpenGL rendered representation of the shell! All shells on these pages (unless stated otherwise) have been rendered with OpenGL in the Shell Laboratory.
KiCadLib: Device and Footprint Library for KiCad This is a collection of electronic device symbols and footprints for KiCad which is used by other projects on open-project.ch. Please leave a comment, if you find this library useful! Download The library can be downloaded from github at PhotoTech Tutorials Advertisement Over the recent months we’ve been presenting various showcases of photography – while many readers hated the showcases, most readers found them inspirational and perfect for a lousy workday’s morning. However, what we should have done in the inspirational posts is not just provide you with some inspiration for your work, but also present useful photographic techniques which can help you to achieve optimal pictures for your designs. And as requested by many of you, now it’s time to correct our mistake.
KiCad EDA Software Suite - Kicad EDA - KiCad EDA KiCad is an EDA software suite for the creation of professional schematics and printed circuit boards up to 32 copper layers with additional technical layers. KiCad runs on Windows, Linux and Apple OS X and is released under the open-source GNU GPL v2 free of charge. If you like KiCad or are making a good living using KiCad in your toolset, you should consider donating funds used for development. CERN has put up a place to collect donations which will be used directly to support a developer. With KiCad you can create schematic diagrams and printed circuit board up to 32 copper layers.
Autodesk Project Pinocchio Recall what I mentioned when Project Pinocchio first launched: We will continue to offer desktop applications bundled into Suites for years to come; however, eventually you are going to want to do everything from your mobile phone or tablet device. Yes we could port our powerful applications to iPhones and the wide variety of flavors of Android devices, attempting to account for the particulars of each one, or we can make our applications available as services from servers in the cloud with lots of CPU power and memory suited to the job. As a step in this direction, the Media & Entertainment (M&E) division asked you to try your hand at character generation using a web-based solution. No download.
Camera Exposure: Aperture, ISO & Shutter Speed A photograph's exposure determines how light or dark an image will appear when it's been captured by your camera. Believe it or not, this is determined by just three camera settings: aperture, ISO and shutter speed (the "exposure triangle"). Mastering their use is an essential part of developing an intuition for photography. Tiny Eyes TinyEyes will show you how a baby sees an image that you provide. Our baby-vision simulation method is based on scientific studies of infant visual perception. Please remember that this is our best scientific guess about how a baby of a particular age would see the world.

Comparing 7 Common Light Modifiers Guest post by Robert Mitchell. Hit the bottom of the post to see his links. When assembling a lighting kit, it’s very difficult to know which modifiers are best for the type of work you want to do, and sometimes you don’t know or are discovering what you want to shoot.
