#58 – Modified Tennis Ball

It’s been a busy day with the kids today, so not much opportunity for many shots. Took the kids into town today, partly so Josh could exchange his DS for a 3DS, but also grabbed some bits for next week. Both Josh and Tilly were back at Swimming club this evening so whilst sat with Tilly I took this shot of a tennis ball an played with it through pixlr o magic on the iPhone!

#41 – iPhone in iPad in Photo Self Portrait


Well, sincere thanks to Guy for suggesting this composition of taking the ‘picture in picture’ concept one stage further! So here we have a picture in a picture in a picture! It took me a while to get it right, and  it’s still a bit rough around the edges. However, without a remote for my camera and some decent lighting, this was never going to be easy! So without the necessary tools to make this easier I turned to PhotoShop and put that to work to create the shot correctly.

This is actually three images layered together, one of my, one of the iPhone and another of the iPad. The hardest part was putting it all together in a way which looks realistic!

Any more suggestions for shots, then leave a comment and I will see what I can do! Actually, it nice to have some direction or suggestions, so please feel free to suggest some.

#31 – Not quite feeling all there today

Ever get that feeling that things are happening without you? First day back into it after last week’s travels and feeling pretty below-par health-wise today. Thought that this composition seemed ideal for today. It also gave me a chance to test out a few methods inside Photoshop to create a levitation effect.

XMPie Marketing Console for iPhone

Once again my good friend and colleague Tim Perrett has gone and done it again. XMPie stupidly allowed him to ‘have a play’ for a few days with the XMPIe APIs and the uber-geek that he is has come out with another world’s first – the iPhone application for XMPie’s Marketing Console! A while back in 2008 Tim was also the first person to write an iPhone application (again using the XMPie APIs) to interact with and control a remote XMPie uProduce server. That post you can see here.

For those that might not know or appreciate what the Marketing Console is:
XMPie uProduce Marketing Console is revolutionizing the way marketers track and control cross-media one-to-one communication campaigns. uProduce Marketing Console is the industry’s first Web-based tracking and reporting tool that monitors each phase of a multi-channel, one-to-one marketing campaign including print, e-mail and the Web.

Its open system also allows for the easy integration of third party data. Marketing service providers and print providers can view the results and revise campaign tactics or update customer information on the fly, helping improve response rates and overall campaign effectiveness.

The XMPie uProduce Marketing Console provides sophisticated real-time tools for measuring the success of a marketing campaign, based on campaign variables (ADOR
Objects), Cross Media events and actions.

So effectively the Marketing Console allows you real-time access to all your cross media campaigh results and metrics. Who visited their RURL? Which worked better email or print? Did I get more responses from those that saw personalised images opposed to static? Narvarna for many marketing professional. Traditionally the Marketing Console is a web-based application as you can see from the screen-shot to the top-right.

What Tim has done (in my simpistic way) is […]
