Sip for OS X

Sip is a simple yet powerful tool for colour picking. I’m using it everyday for my workflow in Sketch and Photoshop. This simple and easy to use tool silently sits upon menu extras ready to pick, collect and identify colours.

I am an avid amateur photographer (veering into freelance work) who also works on a Mac. I have enjoyed using Aperture since day 1. I also have used Lightroom and while it’s excellent, I still prefer Aperture’s interface and “feel”.
I understand all the reasons for ceasing development but to me this is still pretty sad. I have been holding out hopes that with the new Mac Pro, Apple will renew development effort in Aperture (remember Final Cut Pro X / Logic Pro X?).
For those who say one should move on, you are not wrong but it would be nice if you could understand that it’s pretty hard to take when someone asks you to throw out the tool you have grown to love and master over the years.

A year ago Adobe has adopted digital subscription distribution model and released Creative Cloud. I immediately installed it and moved all my data and workflow to Photoshop CC. Today Adobe released another major version of Creative Cloud software as well as Photoshop CC 2014, and it’s huge. Check it out on Photoshop.com blog.

  Today we’re also releasing a completely new version of Photoshop CC with important new features for designers and photographers: from improved Layer Comps to enable you to sync changes across multiple comps, to new Blur Gallery motion effects like Spin Blur and Path Blur, to Focus Mask which automatically selects the area of an image that is in-focus, to improved type and font capabilities, and even more 3D printing enhancements. This release is packed with new capabilities that enable you to push your creativity farther, faster.









Good news for photographers and retouchers — from today You can get Photoshop and Lightroom (desktop and mobile) only for $10 per month. See details on creative.adobe.com/plans/photography.


Until this day I personally do not recommended to upgrade to CC apps from CS5.5 or newer. But things have changed, get a CC 2014 trial and You will see its fast and powerful performance. As for me, new fonts catalog it awesome and enhanced content aware fill is a life-saver:
New feature — Focus Mask which automatically selects the area of an image that is in-focus:
And tons of bug fixes, for example the tedious one with white palette windows, that appears after using Lasso with Wacom Intuos tablet.Hint: Photoshop CC 2014 and other “2014” apps will be installed in a separate folder on your hard drive, so You need to start CC 2014 before deleting old one in order to move your settings and resources. 3rd party plugins may be copied manually. Also I used to setup my Wacom prefs for PS 2014 as a new app.

Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater

Odessa Opera House was the first in Ukraine at its time of construction, in meaning and popularity. The first theater was opened in 1810, but in 1873 it was completely destroyed by fire. The city invited Viennese architects, F. Felner and H. Helmer, to draft a new building. It took nearly fifteen years for Odessa to rebuild the Opera House and it was opened on October 1st, 1887. In 1925 another fire destroyed the stage and unique curtain, and damaged the auditorium.
In 1955-1956 groundwater began to destroy the foundation of the building, and it took almost 2 years of construction work to strengthen the foundation. Finally, from 1996 to 2007 the theater was completely overhauled, and this time to last for centuries. The foundation piles were reinforced in 1800, which run into the underground hard rock. Now the opera house has modern air-conditioning systems, fire alarm and power supply, internal cell phone, security, and video surveillance. It was a complete restoration of the facade and interior. Finally, on September 22nd, 2007 the Odessa Opera House was reopened, no less solemn than the first time.
The Odessa Opera House is not only interesting for its architecture, but it also has a rich creative biography. The theater deserves much of the credit for the development of musical culture in Russia and Ukraine. The works of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Eugene Ysae, Pablo Sarasate and others were performed here. Artists who made the domestic arts famous performed here. Here the great Fyodor Chaliapin, Solomiya Krushelnytska, Antonina Nezhdanova, Leonid Sobinov, Titti Ruffo, Mattia Battistini, and Eugenio Dzhiraldoni sang, and the first dancer of the world, Anna Pavlova, danced.
