Cleanup.pictures is a very easy to use tool that makes getting rid of unwanted stuff in a photo, way to easy!
How? Well this is the whole process: upload your photo -> use the brush to mark the thing /things that needs removed -> blink -> your clean photo is now ready 🤯
You also have a cool “on/off” switch which lets you see the before & after and that’s pretty much it!
Making things simple is very hard. So long may tools that do one thing really really well, live and may photoshop & the likes rest in peace 🪦 as AI is slowly taking over all of these tasks and making the processes quicker & easier than ever.
And from where I stand, they are still just that. Tools. Quicker, cheaper, better tools but not close to putting any person out of a job just yet 😉
This week’s maker story comes from a no-code maker & writer focusing on other no-code acquisitions 👀
“Once upon a time…on a sunny summer day in Leuven, Belgium…. I noticed that every tweet about my recent acquisition (of a small side project made with No-Code) went bonkers.
So I followed the pull. In 30 minutes I created a Substack, went for the first best name that popped in my head and chose an icon from a stock website as logo. I announced it on Twitter and 12 hours later I had around 250 subscribers. I quickly published my own story and left on holiday for 2 weeks. When I returned, I had 610 subscribers. Newsletter Market Fit: Check. Now (3 months later) I’m at 2000+ subscribers and have around 800 USD of ad revenue per month.
For my readers, I always feel a bit guilty when I display ads. So I really go the extra mile and try to think outside the box to have ads that add value for my readers (It has been a success because in an audience survey there was someone who only reads the newsletter for the ads ;-)). And this also results in good results for the advertiser and some long-term partnerships with some. So it’s really a win-win.
If I look back now on my journey I would never have thought one thing would lead to another:
Made small No-Code Side Project
No-Code Side Project got Acquired
Stared No-Code Exits because of all the questions I received about it
It also got an acquisition offer for No-Code Exits (but I said no)
And now I’m making an mvp to validate an idea also in the No-Code / acquisition space.
So conclusion: don’t wait for this huge idea. Start launching some side projects, learn by doing and listen to your audience/users/readers/… Who knows what I will be doing in 12 months 🙂“
