This is useful, for example, when resizing photos or video. <p><strong style="color: #c00;">You must have JavaScript enabled to use this page. Instructions Enter the values for the original width (W1) & original height (H1) on the left. Formula Say you have a photo that is 1600 x 1200 pixels, but your blog only has space for a photo 400 pixels wide. (original height / original width) x new width = new height (1200 / 1600) x 400 = 300 Note: this is the new, improved version. / experiments / Aspect Ratio Calculator Related:  lorem49

Trendy Geometric Lines Design Tutorial This post was originally published in 2008 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. Starting with the design application of Adobe Illustrator create a group of vector based geometric lines at dynamic 45 degree angles, then follow the walkthrough to rough them up with brush textures in Adobe Photoshop resulting in a cool and trendy design style. The use of angled lines adds a dynamic flair to the composition of a design allowing the viewers eye to follow them across the page. Start the design in Adobe Illustrator, draw out a number of blocks faced up to each other filled with the colour scheme of your choice. Select all the blocks and click the New Icon in the Brushes Palette, in the option box select New Art Brush. Check the direction of the brush is flowing in the correct direction using the arrow buttons. Now the brush is saved in the Brushes Palette begin drawing the geometric lines. Repeat the process with multiple lines, scaling them slightly to give varied sizes and widths.

Which responsive images solution should you use? There are a bunch of techniques going around for dealing with responsive images lately. That is, solutions to help us serve the right image for the occasion (e.g. size of screen and bandwidth available). They all do things a bit differently. To keep track, Christopher Schmitt and I have created this spreadsheet of techniques. The spreadsheet has the data, but let's digest it through thinking about it through the lens of practical questions. To choose which technique is right for you and your project these questions may help as a guide. Do I have legacy content? Which really means... do I have legacy content that is impractical to update? The only technique I know of that works with absolutely no markup changes is Adaptive Images. Another question to ask yourself is if you care about legacy content. Do I care about special markup? This is really a sub-question of the above. Do I care about semantics? Some responsive images techniques involve markup which isn't strictly semantic. Share On

Oculus Is Awesome for Games, But It's the Future of Movies | Underwire Photo courtesy Oculus PARK CITY, Utah – I never thought I’d ever say this, but I’m onstage with Beck. He’s wearing his usual hat-and-blazer combo, and covering one of my favorite David Bowie songs. Out past the crowd is a full choir — a few faces I recognize because they played with Beck during last year’s Station to Station rolling art extravaganza — and a massive musical ensemble. That’s when my brain reminds me I’m not actually on stage. Instead, I’m sitting in a chair at the Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier installation, wearing an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. “The first time I tried Chris Milk‘s Beck experience in VR, it fundamentally changed the way I thought about, frankly, audio in VR,” says Nate Mitchell, Oculus’ vice president of product, “and the impact a live concert could have on me in virtual reality.” It’s not just concerts. “Games are our passion,” Mitchell says, “but when you take it and show it to people here, they’re like, ‘I have something. Like where?

Implementing Secure Passwords in PHP 5.5 Introduction PHP has always had a few simple ways to implement password hashing to an extent. MD5 and SHA1 are examples of this, but the security of these methods is not what it should be. What we need is a secure password encryption mechanism that uses SALT and perhaps even something else to help us safely encrypt our passwords for later use. PHP 5.5 Secure Password API Lucky for us, the folks at PHP have thought about this long and hard, and the result is a very simple PHP password hashing API that is not only easy to use, but fast and secure. $hash = md5($password . This way is not bad--it works--but it isn't great. There is a lot that can go wrong here. The new, better way of doing this is: $hash = password_hash($password, PASSWORD_DEFAULT); As you can see, the password_hash() function will create an encrypted password using the default algorithm, which is currently bcrypt(), and sets the default load factory (cost) at 10. $2y$10$.vGA1O9wmRjrwAVXD98HNOgsNpDczlqm3Jq7KnEd1rVAGv3Fykk1a >> Design & Development: Getting Started This guidance and application gives you an overview of ASP.NET Web Pages (version 2 or later) and Razor syntax, a lightweight framework for creating dynamic websites.
