How to switch from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Professional without reinstallation

Upgrade your version of Windows without having to completely reinstall your PC's operating system. Switching from a version of Windows 10 Home to a version of Windows 10 Pro isn't as complicated as you might think. If you imagined a complete system reinstallation to switch from one version to another, you were wrong. Microsoft has done it right. Upgrading a Windows 10 Home to a Windows 10 Professional is done by simply changing the product key saved in the system settings. You will therefore only have to buy a Windows 10 Professional product key that you will enter in place of the one already present on your machine. Even better, if you already have a Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, or Windows 8 / 8.1 Pro product key, for example from a machine that you no longer use, you can normally use it to upgrade your Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Professional. Windows can be unpredictable at times, so be sure to make a full backup of the data stored on your computer before st

How to sublimate your photos with Photoshop Camera?



Adobe has just unveiled a free photography app for iOS and Android that can apply filters in real time and enhance your portrait photos.

Taking artistic photos without knowledge of image editing is what Photoshop Camera, Adobe's new free photography app, promises.


Thanks to artificial intelligence, this camera application, which will complement the native application of your smartphone, promises you to take spectacular shots without having to go through subsequent manual editing.


With more than 80 filters, called "Objectives" in the app, the user can turn mundane shots into real masterpieces. The filters offered in Photoshop Camera are inspired for some by filters created and used by influencers and photographers with varying degrees of renown on social networks.


Effects are applied in real time while shooting, while the app automatically corrects image brightness when needed for optimal rendering.


1. Download Photoshop Camera

Photoshop Camera is available for free on iOS and Android. While it is not intended to replace the photography application installed natively on your smartphone, it will complement it by offering you a wide range of effects and filters. If your smartphone is devoid of it, Photoshop Camera will give your device a real mode of portrait photography.

 

2. Log in to your Adobe account

Like all Adobe applications, Photoshop Camera requires signing in to an Adobe account. Sign in to the app using your Adobe ID credentials, and create an account if you don't already have one.


3. Choose a filter

Choosing a filter in Photoshop Camera is done by selecting the desired lens from the carousel at the bottom of the screen displayed after pressing the three star icon. The effects of each filter are applied in real time to your scene.


You can apply different variations of the same filter by scrolling to the left. Once the filter is selected, start shooting as you normally would.


4. Install other filters

Photoshop Camera natively integrates a number of filters. It is possible to download more, by pressing the Add button at the end of the carousel, or by directly pressing the icon showing a world map at the top left.


Then just enter a Goal Details, then hit Add Goal to see it appear in the app's filter carousel.


5. Change preferences

Tap the three small dots displayed at the top center of the shooting frame. This menu will allow you to choose the ratio of your image (4: 3 or 16: 9), configure the flash, or access the advanced settings of the application.


6. Edit the images on the camera roll

While Photoshop Camera is capable of applying filters in real time to your shots, the app can also automatically correct photos already saved on your device's camera roll.


To do this, tap the thumbnail displayed next to the shutter button. You can then select an image from Photoshop Camera's own filmstrip (Studio PsC), or pick an image from the Camera Roll of your smartphone.


Photoshop Camera applies automatic correction to provide the best possible rendering of the image. These corrections can be adjusted by pressing the icon in Settings at the top right.


In addition, the application is able to display a suggestion of Lenses that can be applied to the image, depending on the subject being photographed.

How to use Meet Now, Skype video calling service for free?

Skype has just integrated a solution to create or join video meetings on the fly with or without registration. Here's how to use it. With the confinement imposed on all by the Covid-19, downloads of messaging applications to initiate video calls have exploded. And if in the mid-2000s, Skype was the benchmark in terms of videoconferencing solution, the application acquired by Microsoft in 2011 has lost its splendor and has been overtaken by new, more aggressive players offering an interface and more modern features that have won over the general public. To return to the front of the stage, the application has multiplied the updates bringing new features such as the ability to blur the background during a video call, or to translate on the fly conversations held in other languages. But in an attempt to counter Zoom, whose use has exploded in recent weeks, Skype has launched Meet Now, a feature to launch a video meeting on the fly, accessible both from the application and from a web b

How to enable encrypted DNS in Microsoft Edge and protect your web browsing

Help protect your privacy by changing Microsoft web browser settings to force DNS-over-HTTPS to be enabled. Microsoft announced a few weeks ago that it wanted to integrate native support for the DNS-over-HTTPS protocol on Windows 10. Thanks to it, the protection of the privacy of its users will be reinforced thanks to the automatic encryption of DNS requests. While at this time the availability date of such a feature in Microsoft's OS is unknown, users can already activate the feature in the Microsoft Edge web browser. Like Chrome and Firefox, Microsoft's new browser version supports encrypted DNS. However, the feature is not available by default and requires that you activate a specific setting within a hidden menu. Here is how to do it. 1. Access the flags The new version of Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium, so it shares a number of elements with Chrome.
