Ashot explains how he shops on Amazon. It’s a pretty good method and I’ve started to do the same. Here are some of the things he actually bought through his process:
The Complete Far Side 1980-1994
Griffin Headphone Adapter for iPhone
Senseo Coffee Pod System
He, saddly, does not have the Hello Kitty Toaster.
Paranoia aside Amazon is devilishly good at getting me to buy stuff by (1) holding things in my cart and (2) saving the things I looked at previously. I hate when I put things in my shopping cart, walk away for a few hours, and come back to an ‘expired session’. Usually I just give up on that site.
The video details
All the pictures are products from Amazon. I experimented with Pixelmator to compose the images used in this movie. (Some reviews if you’re interested) It’s a great application for general photo editing. In the past I’ve only used crop, resize and minor color tweaks.
While making these composites I found out that Pixelmator can’t make straight lines and the ‘glow’ feature didn’t work properly. I ended up finishing the last touches with Photoshop (Pixelmator can save as psd, which is pretty cool). For me, Pixelmator is not a Photoshop replacement, but I will continue to use Pixelmator since it loads faster than Photoshop.
