The Best Instagram Filter Can Only Be Accessed In Stories

At the risk of angering Jameela Jamil, I enjoy a good filter. Most Instagram filters, however, are crap, and either wash you out completely or make you look extremely, well, filtered. A good filter subtly smooths out an image, and maybe brightens it slightly. Like a good concealer, it doesn’t do much; it does just…Read more...

After months of insisting that #Article13 doesn't require filters, top EU Commissioner says "Article 13 requires filters"

The months of debate over Article 13 of the new EU Copyright Directive (passed in a tragicomedy of errors when some MEPs got confused and pushed the wrong buttons), the most contentious issue was whether the rule would require online service providers to spend millions on copyright filters, which are known to be error-prone and the source of mountains of algorithmic censorship, as well as being easily abused by would-be censors who can make false copyright claims with impunity and use them to p...

Why #Article13 inevitably requires filters

When the German MEP Axel Voss took over the new EU Copyright Directive and reinstated the controversial Article 13, he was explicit that the idea of the rule was to make all online services use filters, similar to Youtube's Content ID, to screen everything their users posted and block anything that seemed to match any unlicensed copyrighted work, anywhere. But filters are so expensive that only US Big Tech companies could afford them, and they are incapable of distinguishing fair dealing (i...

Masks designed to filter smoke will filter smoke, beards will not

With all the smoke in California's air, ABC7 decided to answer the eternal question: will a mask designed to filter smoke and other particulates actually filter smoke and other particulates? Public health officials say yes. Just make sure you get an N95, P95 or R95 mask. Bearded people and young children need not bother. The Bay Area Quality Management District advises that masks aren't suitable for men with beards or young children. #DYK how to wear a respirator (mask)? A “N95," "P95," o...

Vadim is a master of the dark arts of DSP – listen to him explain filters

Why you might want to use red or other coloured filters with your digital camera

Coloured filters have been popular amongst black & white film photographers for decades. Typically, these are blue, red, orange, yellow and green. They help to increase contrast in skies and reduce the appearance of blemishes on skin, but are they still useful today with black & white digital? That’s what photographer David Bergman explores in this video. […] The post Why you might want to use red or other coloured filters with your digital camera appeared first on DIY Photography.

Choose Your Frames of Reference Wisely

--> I spent the summer following my first year of law school working at the Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) in Washington, DC. The entire summer and the events leading up to it resulted in one of the strangest experiences I have ever had. After I got the job with the DOJ, I was required to undergo a security clearance with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. After contacting and questioning many people I knew in the past, the FBI also required me to take a physical and a drug test. In late sp...

Listening, the secret of sound design: Francis Preve at Loop

To master sound design, no technology can top your own hearing. That’s the message from Francis Preve, who gave a gripping talk at Ableton Loop. Now we’ve got video – and more discussion. Nothing is sacred – not even the vaunted TB-303 filter. It’s really easy to fall into the trap of trying to define specialization in the narrowest terms possible, chasing worth in whatever trend is generating it at the moment. But part of why I’ve been glad to know Fran over the years is, he has knowledge and...

Get that signature jungle filter sweep with Mumdance’s Euro module

Out with vinyl; now anyone who’s anyone releases on Eurorack? Regardless, the Akai S950-inspired module from Mumdance and ALM Busy Circuits sounds brilliant. There does seem to be a new correlation between people pushing musical innovation and making their own hardware.

MPFR: Millennials Perpetuate Filtered Reality

I’ve never had an appreciation for fine art, dining or anything remotely posh. But now, more than ever, I live moments rather than capture them. Tate Modern, London, UK (2017) I and mainly millennials are guilty of being quick to draw out our phones when we see a spectacle.
