Two UI Breakdowns of the week

This week's chosen workflows are from screenshots/photos:

  1. Copy pasting a text from photos
  2. Opening a link via screenshot

Breakdown #1

Information is shared via slack quite regurarly. From time to time, we might need to just access the information quickly via the screenshot.

See a quick audit below of a screenshot via slack photos ‡

Breakdown #2

Consider being able to click on links from a screenshot rather than from the text. This is now possible using screen recognition, but with some limitations.

See a quick audit below ‡
