Are you looking for elusive hardware on Amazon, in a situation where 90% of items will be “out of stock”? Save time with a new UserScript that usefully hides any item declaring itself “Out of Stock”, and thus shows “Amazon in-stock only”. The code looks clean and legit to me.
Works fine, but in the UK you need to manually tweak the code to also run on Amazon UK, and also change the capitalised detection-phrase from “Out of Stock” to “out of stock”.
It’s an interesting script and presumably one could tweak it to block any listing with an occurrence of a repeating phrase.
Want to save a few hours a week, by slightly speeding up tutorial videos on YouTube? Or do you need to slow down a presenter who is going way too fast? The free Any Youtube Playback Speed enables precise speed control on a simple slider. Tested, and works fine.
The free open-source font editor and creator FontForge has a new 20th Anniversary Edition release.
Worried about buying stuff from dodgy nations, on Black Friday, or just interested in where the cool stuff comes from? There’s a new UserScript for Web browsers that claims to show Country of origin at Amazon. Looking carefully at the script, it appears clean and uses the two-letter “isocode”, which in Amazon’s documentation is defined as the…
ISO code that indicates the country where the product was manufactured.
Nice idea, but regrettably the script just doesn’t work. No country-of-origin information or flag shows up on the page. Still, someone may want to take it and fix it.
More DeviantArt annoyances discovered, with the new clunky UI. Compression of the Favourites thumbnails has obviously been cranked up, and these are now clipped, as you can see here…
Favourites thumbnail, over-compressed and clipped!

Topaz Gigapixel A.I. 5.3 has been released and it has a major new feature of interest to artists and designers. A new A.I. up-scaling mode called “Art”…
“best for CGI imagery, scanned in prints of paintings and drawings, and graphic designs. Also works best for images that have a lot of color shifting.”
Who knew? Photoshop has Conditional Actions, which means its Actions can do some basic if/or type of automated decision-making. This type of Action was introduced back in Photoshop CS6 (December 2012 update). These special actions can also “call other actions depending on a condition”, and you choose from a canned list of these…
Conditional Actions seem relatively poorly documented (for instance, only 100 hits in Google Search for “conditional action” photoshop -captivate), and I’d never read about them in any review. But the best short tutorial I could find is from 2017, “Saving Time with Photoshop Conditional Actions” by Eric Renno.
Tested and confirmed, Nomad Sculpt trial-version runs fine and beautifully on an Amazon Kindle Fire 10″ (2017) tablet. Sadly this leading digital sculpting app is not on the Amazon Kindle Store, though, only Google Play. Why would you need it to be? Because the Trial needs to be upgraded to Full, with a $15 in-app payment.
At long last, the best digital watercolour painting software Rebelle 3 has gone to a significant discount price. $63, or about £50, for the latest 3.2.5. It’s perpetual desktop software, not subscription.
There’s a new free UserScript Lynda Subtitle Translate Tool for Web browsers, using the Yandex auto-translate widget…
“You can add subtitles in any language while watching videos on Lynda.com.”
Possibly useful for English-only graphics and software-training videos, if it works and can handle technical terms. Somehow I suspect that “Ambient Occlusion” and “Adaptive Sampling” and “Big fat brushes will lag” and suchlike may end up getting a bit mangled.
