Interface Design for Ambrosia Software‘s WireTap Anywhere.

WireTap Anywhere is a suite of components that lets you take the audio output from any Mac application or hardware input device and bring it into your favorite audio recording application.

Marcus Conge of Ambrosia Software did a great work on additional graphics, logo and everything else.

You can view WTA in action at WTA Overview Video.

WireTap Anywhere Product Info

My room/office in North Hollywood, California. (High-res image)

I threw away my old desk and bought/assembled new one from Ikea and matching file cabinet. I’ve yet to finish the Apple decal under my chair mat, it will be thin semi-transparent plastic. Right now it’s just paper. All hardwares including Mac Pro are controlled via Logitech Harmony 1000 Universal Remote Control (great hardware but crappy as hell software.)

I was gettng pretty tired of standard room posters so I went looking for something more unique and found some great wall decals from blik. One of the best wall decal store you’ll find around.

I’ve added my collection to left sidebar in ‘My Library’ (or direct link to my library webpage) if you’d like to view all visible things I have in my office.

You could also view my collection directly in Delicious Library 2 app by clicking Add button for sidebar shelf and select Add Friend > New Person > enter my name and email address (adambetts at mac.com) DL2 will automatically detect my .Mac Library and download them to your Friends list.

Delicious Library 2 Web Publishing

The goal of web publishing is to keep it as simple as possible; everything in one window sheet and avoid using tabs or any other design that would hide steps from users. Here’s a screencast of Web Publishing interface in motion (flash video, no audio):

Item Selection

Comparison of Old, Prototype and Final item selection appearance. While we like spotlight with case highlight one the most, it ultimately didn’t work out as well as we hope due to different item sizes and non resolution independent. It’s not easy to replicate the spotlight effect purely in code so we went with something more lightweight and flexible for every types of item. It works a lot better when in use.

Item Info Panel

Some of you may have seen a different UI for info pane from several websites who provided early look at Delicious Library 2 such as Theocacao, this interface didn’t make it to final build for various reasons. It was inspired by Leopard’s iCal but I believe our implementation are much better. It wasn’t ready for release though and might will come in the future.

You can download a trial version of Delicious Library 2 from www.delicious-monster.com.

Above image color will not be accurate (again) if you view it via other web browsers without color management support but you get the idea.

This should be a must for any photographers or frequent visitor to photo sites such as flickr.

Enable Color Management in FF3’s about:config page

One little (Mac only?) bug: it also color manage the entire window color, rendering all elements (titlebar, buttons, etc.) slightly darker. D’oh!

Doing manipulations like this in record time.

Really neat new digital paint tool technology from Carnegie Mellon University. Think of this of as a mix of Photoshop’s healing brush, clone stamp tool, gradient map and regular brush. With this technology, you could use edge brush to make your middle finger in your emo picture a little longer (curvy even!) to emphasize on your non-existent point. I suspect they’re using the same magic dust that Blue Fairy casted on Pinocchio’s nose.

I usually don’t do any kinds of custom templates since they’re very limiting on my creativity (“create something that everyone would like” aka standard plain version.) However, with the unlimited freedom given for Delicious Library 2 templates, I’m excited to do something that visually match the flashiness of DL2.

Template 2


iPhone version

When browsing the library pages on iPhone, it will switch to lite version.

There’s also a print template. You can modify existing templates to your liking.

I’ve been working with Delicious Monster since late 2006 for various things and this first post is a brief preview of several icons & graphics I’ve done for Delicious Library 2 which came out today.
