Photoshop, is Adobe’s flagship product, which has long been the go-to tool for many professional photographers. Photoshop CS4 shipped with a new “layers” feature (part of the Fluid Design layout) that made layering and masking image editing easier. Photoshop 5 and CS5.5 shipped with a redesigned workflow.
Even though Photoshop CS4 was a year old, you probably already had your own copy of Photoshop around, and probably had already bought, or downloaded for free, Photoshop Elements.
If you haven’t used Photoshop Elements before, this guide will help you get up and running.

Photoshop Elements vs. Photoshop
If you’re just starting out, you might wonder why you should bother paying for Photoshop Elements when you can easily download and use Photoshop for free. A lot of people do use Photoshop Elements, but it also has a lot of appeal for advanced and professional users.
Here’s the breakdown.
What Photoshop Elements can do:
It lets you use layers and masks, giving you great control over your photographs.
You can enhance, adjust, and edit photographs with a range of effects.
You can add text, shapes, and lines.
You can use professional art brushes.
You can apply the same effects and transformations to multiple photos at once, which makes it easy to do things like retouching an entire canvas of photos.
To take a photo with Elements:

It’s the easiest way to start editing your images.
The program will take a series of photos with the ability to delete the “bad” shots and combine the “good” ones.

You can either download photos directly from your digital camera or import them from a file on your computer.

What Photoshop Elements can’t do:
The Nigerian Senate has passed a bill seeking to ban abortion on and after the 20th week of pregnancy.
The three-day debate on the bill was presided over by senate President Bukola Saraki.
The law, which will soon be sent to President Muhammadu Buhari for approval, has been described as draconian. It criminalises abortion on grounds of rape, incest, fetocide and other forms of “grave sexual offences”.
It also stipulates that the practice must be halted within 60 hours of a procedure being performed, and with no exceptions.
“Providing the law is signed into law, every abortion carried out without the permission of the law would be an offence carrying a punishment of 14 years imprisonment,” it says.
The bill, which was first introduced in 2015, adds that “for any person, if he carries out any abortion without lawful authority, the offence shall be punishable by imprisonment for fourteen (14) years, with the penalty increased to imprisonment for life for any offence committed by any licensed medical practitioner engaged in the provision of abortion, provided however, that upon conviction for such offence, the doctor shall be liable to serve the period of imprisonment prescribed under this section, which shall be in addition to any other penalty prescribed by this section.”
An anti-abortion group have criticised the bill, calling it “unconstitutional and unacceptable”.
The Catholic University of Lubumbashi, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, said: “The bill would also attack all women who might want to terminate a pregnancy. It violates rights and ignores the well-being of the unborn child. How can this law be endorsed by President Buhari?”
However, a student activist called on President Buhari to sign the bill into law, saying it would help reduce maternal mortality rates.
Isabella Oparanoge, secretary of the Islington Feminist Society, said: “We believe that this bill will be a major step forward in reducing maternal mortality rates in Nigeria.
“Abortion is a painful and traumatic experience for women. If they are victims of sexual assault, they are particularly vulnerable to the effects of this traumatic experience.”
She added: “Research into this shows that women who have suffered rape as a result of an unwanted pregnancy are eight times more likely to commit suicide than women who have not been raped.”Trump announces China tariffs, says he won’t cut off U.S. trade ties The president says he’ll keep all “ports and tariffs
As the age of social media continues to evolve, people have become less willing to debate in “real life,” and more comfortable forming opinions online and posting them publicly.
In times of rapid and active social media platforms, it can sometimes be hard to distinguish between an authentic argument and a publicity stunt; and, in many cases, there’s no real benefit to the person doing the “typing” to be seen.
We decided to put a spin on this once-perceived phenomenon by creating the “Faux Debate Challenge.” Each day of the week, we posed a false argument and invited people on Twitter to react to it.
The challenge is not necessarily about the substance of the debate, but rather the form in which the debate is formed, and we did leave the talk part out.
We wanted to see what people would be prepared to say in an unedited argument, and we got some surprising results. We thought it would be fun to see what other people were saying on social media. There was no debate, just a discussion about what came across as humorous or sad, and why.
The results were kind of hilarious, as you can see below.
