TL;DR: no. Transactions are more or less complex process which can either be committed (thus changing the state of the system) or rolled back (thus restoring the original state of the system). The challenge typically faced in "web" based interfaces is that the HTTP protocol, on which the web is built, is stateless, i.e. a "basic" web server cannot ...

Its a fairly broad question to be honest, I' start by looking around at both playforms UI patterns to identify the differences between the two before you start to research, sketch and prototype and test this will make it easier when you come to design and prototype it. Assuming you mean mobile (not tablet) the main thing is getting the screen size right in ...

You would need to test each page, from experience users go for speed/ ease of use over consistency. Where the information in the drop down is extensive ( eg a list of towns) predictive lettering is really good)

Couple of suggestion Keep the 'apply change' button in blue colour ( refer bootstrap primary button colour). Initially keep the button as greyed or disabled visual treatment. When user makes the change in the page, then give blue colour to the button. This is like acknowledging the user that changes need to apply. In the current design I can see ...

With my current company, we are doing the same thing: Redesign from scratch. I think this approach has some pros and a cons: The pro is, that you can overhaul deprecated technologies, or you might even HAVE to do it, if you change something like a logistics provider or similar - maybe you do not have a choice but "to change it all". From user perspective ...

"Tools", in the context of an image editing application, are typically local operations. That is, they are actions that the user does by clicking (or pressing) on the canvas (e.g. draw, select, erase, zoom). It's generally understood that you select a tool, and that the selected tool governs how the user interacts directly with the canvas. On the other ...

If 'Advanced Settings', sits under 'Tools', then you could use the gear icon for Tools and the three dot icon for advanced settings (...) It's kind of like opening the toolbar, and then you can dig deeper into the toolset if you want. I think any kind of 'expand' type icon could work here. You don't really need to find an icon for advanced settings, just ...

The terminology you are using is incorrect. Instead of terming Image Processing functions consisting of Hue, Saturation, Contrast, Brightness, etc as Advanced Settings, a better option is to name it Edit or Tune Image. Why? Because major photo editing apps do this. Instagram and Snapseed both use an Edit icon for tuning the image with image processing ...

I think you have the answer yourself, when you say These buttons look like tabs Simply make them look as what they are, BUTTONS, and then you can use regular button states to communicate statuses such as active, selected, disabled or neutral. Using the UI for other elements than those you actually use will always bring problems, going from dfficulties ...

Stepping back a bit, I think your problem might be that of mixing UI metaphors. In desktop applications, tabs are used to select one-of-many pages. Your UI offers freely composable options, which are usually associated with checkboxes. So adding a checkbox to the label would make things closer to the usual some-of-many selections in other applications. ...

Avoid using solely color to communicate information One the principles of web accessibility is "Ensure color is not the sole means of communicating information." While two colors may look very different to a designer's eye, someone with color vision deficiency may perceive them as nearly the same - check your colors against each other with a Contrast ...

When elements are crammed together like tiles in a mosaic instead of overlapping like Windows 95, it's called a Tiling Window. You might also see it called Non-blocking UI, or Non-overlapping UI, or Non-Modal Interface or Non-overlapping User Interface. Tiling windows also tend to be in a tight relationship with the non-blocking philosophy which is ...
