Live photo blurring script - faces, number, plates, etc0

Posted 18 May 2009

In our recent project we came across a need for a script that will blur out part of an image. This feature is mostly needed to make people faces blurred out - but also to remove any personal data, like licence plate numbers, etc. We wanted our users to have a smudge tool that would works exactly like in Photoshop, but in their browser. Unfortunately, as it turns out, it is way too much to ask for from Java Script, and even if we would succeed in adding such a feature, it would most likely work really slowly. At this moment we were left with...

Create a simple drop down menu using CSS4

Posted 08 May 2009

If we have a small website with a simple horizontal menu, it can be very straightforward for visitors to use.But, when a small website starts to grow, often we need to add additional menu items.More items in a menu make it less easy to use, and less readable - it is good practise to keep the number of menu items below 7 items. If our menu consists of more elements, it starts to be confusing to our visitors. What if we need a menu with 14 items (or even more)? One solution to this is to create a Drop Down Menu. We want our menu be fast loading,...
