The Thumbnail Challenge

I recently received a mail saying “Crack It” in the subject line sent to me by one of my friends. The mail had an attachment named “Sweetgirl.jpg”. I was required to save that image into my computer and to see its thumbnail from the saved folder.

I was totally amazed to see that the thumbnail image was the same girl with some other person. This was a little new to me. So out of curiosity, I opened the jpg file with notepad. It was just ordinary. Then I found out that it had some encoding labels that said EXIF and JFIF.They made me more curious. Hence, I googled for these two abbreviations and found out more.

I’ll put the essence that relates to the challenge in hand. The JFIF and EXIF are encodings that allow you to add some information to the image concerned like the author name, the camera type etc. So its like adding signature to an Image. But this EXIF, had another data which can be encoded. It’s a thumbnail image specification. Meaning, a thumbnail can be added to the current image that needn’t be the same image but has to he hard coded into it. So I downloaded a tool called exiftool which had commands to do the same. And after several trial and errors, I had the result. I did it with the same image which was sent to me. I added one of my collection pics as the thumbnail and it worked fine.

The original image for u. Image

My version. Image

To Do :

1. Save the image to one of your folders.

2. Go to that folder and select View --> Thumbnails.

Now if you see that image, it will be different as a thumbnail. If you double click on the thumbnail, you will get the original image.

Check the details encoded in your Jpeg images here. Link.

VISUWORDS : The Graphical Dictionary

The VISUWORDS is a beautiful Online dictionary. The first thing that you notice is that its done gracefully. Its not just Text. It’s a graphical representation of the word and its different meanings. This can also be used as a thesaurus. All the words are linked with several other words which in turn are linked with others. The total setup is very friendly to handle. Once you type a word into the input box, you get the word in the pane and then one by one, the related words Pop up and they form a mesh. Then if you are interested in the linked words, double click on them and the process continues with that word as the center. So you will have a huge mesh to work with. You can click and drag the background to pan around. When you hover over the nodes, the descriptions are shown. The definition of the connection between nodes is clearly given in the page as a legend.

Visuwords™ uses Princeton University’s WordNet, an opensource database built by University students and language researchers. Combined with a visualization tool and user interface built from a combination of modern web technologies, Visuwords™ is available as a free resource to all patrons of the web.

I love the way it spreads out the nodes and gives you the info.Link
