Fix Those Wonky Photos Using These Tips By Just Using Smartphone

Published

on

We’ve definitely felt that taking a picture with a perfect frame can be a tedious job. Despite having the best smartphone cameras and a dozen photographic tricks on our arms, the mastery of smartphone editing also plays an important role.

But, do you take photos often and they’re not symmetrical? Here are a few tips to fix the tilted photos during edits with only your smartphone.

1. The Right Apps

Important tools of the trade are Snapseed and Lightroom. Professionals, you might go for Lightroom which is powered by Adobe. But for average amateur users, it is better to use Snapseed. The app is lightweight, with easy to use UI, especially for beginners.

2. Align the Frame

If your image is asymmetrical, then use the ‘perspective’ tool on Snapseed or ‘Geometry’ tool on Lightroom. This might take a few tries, depending on your picture. Using the grid lines, you need to level out the image and understand the angle that works. Remember to aim for proportioning the objects of the image well. If you’re new to editing, then Snapseed is the easier app to work with.

3. Cropping

Once the frame is aligned then it’s time to crop. Due to the realignment process, there are warped edges and it needs to be removed. The edges are the result of the app’s AI to fill up the empty spaces. It isn’t pretty and makes the image looks unnatural. Make sure to also aligned the subject in the grid.

4. Make it ‘natural’

After the realigning and cropping, add a bit of extra magic and highlight the image focus better. Use the ‘Selective’ tool on Snapseed and Lightroom. It allows you to select a specific object of the image and adjust its brightness, contrasts, sharpness, and saturation. However, try to keep it subtle and aim for neutrality. Oversaturation and excess highlighting can ruin a good image.

So, what do you think of the tips? Simple, right. Now, go take out your phone, install the app of your choice and take some pictures.

These Are 5 Record-Breaking Performances Of All Time In The Olympics

Published

on

The modern Summer Olympic Games have been held every four years since its first Games in the year 1896 and Olympic records are recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in every event. There are actually so many Olympic records that have been broken each year. This is actually so amazing because all the athletes have been working and also practicing their best to create an amazing record for their own performances. Such a great effort.

For the athletes in the Olympics, it would be such a great accomplishment if they could win themselves a gold medal. Little did many people know, it is much more satisfying for all of these athletes if they could do so in a record-breaking fashion. To honor their effort and perseverance, these are the 5 greatest performances in the Olympics.

1) Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt was so far ahead of the competition, he slowed down not out of humility, but rather a celebration. His own 100-meter performance at the 2008 Beijing Games rocked the competition, clocking in at 9.69. Bolt also captured the 200-meter world record with a time of 19.30. Bolt has since broken both of these records, which make his runs at the 2012 London Games must-see events.

2) Elaine Thompson-Herah

As the greatest women’s 100m race reached its denouement, Elaine Thompson-Herah burned past her greatest rival and then raised her left arm in a victory salute. Incredibly, Thompson-Herah had broken the American’s Olympic record. And when she talked about potentially downing Griffith Joyner’s world record of 10.49, such talk did not appear quite as fanciful as it would have done a few moments before.

3)  Inge de Bruijn

The only women’s swimming record not broken at the 2008 Beijing Games was Inge de Bruijn’s 100-meter butterfly. She already owned both the Olympic and world records at the time, but de Bruijn dominated the second lap at the 2000 Sydney Games. At the halfway mark, she was behind her own pace by .3 seconds. But the Netherlands swimmer accelerated after the turn and won by a full body length. She also captured 50-meter and 100-meter freestyle gold in Sydney.

4) Dick Fosbury

What is now considered normal in high jumping was first a quirky move used to world-record levels by Dick Fosbury at the 1968 Mexico City Games. He ‘flopped’ over the bar to a then-record 2.24 meters or 7’4″. In what was dubbed the ‘Fosbury Flop’, the American launched himself up and over by arching his back rather than the two conventional methods of going face-down or scissor-kicking over the bar. Fosbury was the first to try the move, after failing to succeed with the other two methods. Now, his world record has been broken, but his method is the sport’s norm.

5) Rulon Gardner

When someone hasn’t lost in 13 years, an opponent can get intimidated, but not Rulon Gardner. Gardner took down Alexander Karelin at the 2000 Syndey Games to win the Greco-Roman wrestling gold medal. The American had competed only once before in an international tournament, while the Russian was the three-time defending Olympic champion. Furthermore, Karelin was considered the greatest wrestler of all time and had not allowed a point in the last decade. But Gardner outlasted the legend to win the super heavyweight gold.

Kelantan Kite-Makers Continue To Receive Orders Despite Pandemic

Published

on

KOTA BHARU, July 30 — The COVID-19 pandemic did not stop a group of youths in Kampung Sireh here from pursuing their interest in making wau, a traditional kite widely found in Kelantan.

A check by Bernama at Kampung Sireh Flats found that  about seven to 10 youths were producing ‘wau puyuh’ (quail kite) or Wau Kelantan ordered by their customers.

According the group’s head, Muhd Nasru Aiman Mohd Zu, 31, they would continue producing wau puyuh even during the pandemic due to steady orders, and they did not want the traditional art to die out.

Even though it is seen as an old-fashioned craft compared to the modern gadgets, it still has its own fans, he told reporters when met here today.

“Alhamdulillah (Praise be to God), there are still young people in this area who are keen to learn how to make these traditional kites.

“Previously, we only made kites for competitions, but now the demand for giant-sized kites as decorative pieces is increasing,” he said, adding that they learned the kite-making skills from his 61-year-old father, Mohd Zu Man.

Muhd Nasru Aiman said despite the economic slowdown, they continued to receive four to five orders a month for a kite and each piece of giant-sized kite could be sold at the price of RM350.

He said the giant-sized kite needs more than five adult men to fly it.
