This Door Color Could Net You Thousands More When You Sell Your House

Published

on

Even in the hottest housing market in years, it turns out that first impressions really do matter. 

If you’re selling your home, you may not have realized that the color of your front door can have impact on what prospective buyers are willing to pay for your house, but research from Zillow suggests just that. 

Painting your home’s front door slate blue or black will net you the highest selling price for your home, according to a survey from Zillow. Black front doors were associated with the highest offer prices — actual and prospective buyers said they would be willing to pay $6,449 more on average for a home with a black front door. However, painting your front door black is also riskier than some colors, as respondents said that black was associated with an “imposing” feeling and doesn’t “give positive vibes at all.”

Homes that had slate blue front doors — defined as a “chalky light blue-gray” color — were the most appealing to actual and prospective buyers overall, with respondents saying they were more likely to want to purchase the home and would be willing to pay an estimated $1,537 more than other door colors. 

The most unappealing front door colors to potential buyers? Pale pink and cement gray, according to Zillow. Pale pink doors were described by some buyers as “shabby looking” and may actually lower the price people are willing to pay, with actual and prospective buyers saying they would pay $6,516 less on average than anticipated.

Cement gray didn’t fare much better than pale pink. The light gray color was associated with the lowest intention to purchase a home, with respondents intending to offer $1,236 less on average for homes with cement gray doors.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’s Opening Recreates the Red Ribbon Saga

Published

on

Son Goku, in his Saiyan form and dashing forward to fight, in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.

For 90s kids, Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball was one of our first steps into anime and manga. It was Dragon Ball Z on Toonami that was The Show back in the day, and the franchise has gone on in the years since to produce countless games, spinoff anime, and films. With the upcoming Super Hero movie serving as the first film in four years, Toei Animation is going all out to make sure that this movie is a big deal.

Super Hero follows Piccolo (Toshio Furukawa in Japanese, Christopher Sabat in English) and Gohan (Masako Nozawa/Kyle Hebert) as they save the world from a new version of the Red Ribbon Army, a criminal organization that first popped up when Gohan’s father, Goku (Nozawa/Sean Schemmel) was a kid back in the original Dragon Ball, and who later returned in DBZ during the “Androids Saga.” With the film having released in Japan earlier this month, and set to hit other territories sometime in the next months, Toei has released a video of the film’s opening that gives a condensed version of the Ribbon story that’s run across the franchise over the years. Bur rather than simply present that footage as it originally was, Toei recreated it to fit the style of the film’s 3D animation.

(2022) NEW DRAGON BALL SUPER: SUPER HERO MOVIE – Official Animated Intro Trailer

If you’ve played Dragon Ball FighterZ, the film’s art style of mixing 2D with CGI will feel familiar, and it just looks awesome. Seeing the Androids and Cell in cleaner, crisper animation, even just for a moment, may bring back some memories. Beyond the movie meant to follow Super Hero, it’s clear what anime future awaits Dragon Ball, but here’s hoping that the next series, whenever it comes out, has equally gorgeous animation.

Thanks to Crunchyroll, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will hit theaters around the world later this summer.

How to Clear the Recent Files List in Adobe Photoshop

Published

on

If you’ve been using Adobe Photoshop and you don’t want to leave your recent work visible on the opening Home page when you launch the app, you have a few options for clearing the list or hiding it. We’ll show you how.

How to Clear the Recent File List in Photoshop

To clear the recent photos list in Adobe Photoshop, first click “File” in the menu bar. Then select “Open Recent.” In the small menu that appears, select “Clear Recent File List.”

In Photoshop, Select File > Recent File List > Clear Recent File List.

And that’s all it takes. Your recent file list has been erased, and you’ll no longer see the files you’ve recently opened in the File menu or on the “Home” screen when you first open Photoshop. But new files will still be added to the list when you open them. If you want to fix that, see the section below.

How to Hide the Recent File List in Photoshop

As you’ve seen above, it’s easy to clear the Recent File List in Photoshop. But if you open more files after that, you’ll see them in the list again. To get rid of the Recent File List—and hide the recent files from the “Home” screen, click “Edit” in the menu bar. Next, select Preferences, then choose “File Handling” in the menu.

In Photoshop, select Edit > Preferences, then "File Handling"

When the Preferences window opens, look toward the bottom of the window and set the “Recent File List Contains” option to the number “0” (zero) using the text box beside it.

Set "Recent File List Contains" to "0"

After that, click “OK,” and Photoshop will save your changes and close the Preferences window. From now on, you’ll no longer see the list of recently opened files in the File menu or on the Home screen.

But be aware: Photoshop still keeps track of recently-opened files, even if you don’t see them listed. If you change “Recent File List Contains” to another number other than 0, you’ll see recently opened files again.
