The “S” in Photoshop stands for _social_ and is used to describe its design and the vast number of features that can be applied to images.
One of the most unique features of Photoshop is its integration with the social media sites Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube as well as services like Flickr, Blogger, YouTube, eBay, Google+, and LinkedIn.
About halfway through the book you will learn about Photoshop’s more technical features, including both image editing and image design tools.
Before You Begin
Although Photoshop is usually your first choice for digital photo editing, other software tools may better serve your needs.
If you are unfamiliar with Photoshop’s myriad functions, consider starting with an introductory tutorial.

Many of the most experienced Photoshop designers (and photo editors) recommend a tutorial as your first exposure to the features and functions of the program.
If you are unfamiliar with Photoshop’s many functions, consider following a tutorial designed to introduce the basics of the program, such as chapters in a basic Photoshop design book.
Understanding the different types of layers in a photo is essential to learning Photoshop.
About Layer Types in Photoshop
When working with Photoshop, you must become familiar with the different types of layers that are available. Layers are not only the most basic and necessary function of Photoshop, but they also help keep files organized, help keep them organized, and support Adobe’s cloud-
Adobe Photoshop is a photo editing software that is used for different purposes in different photography circles. Its range of functions is huge, and its abilities to edit image are greater than other similarly priced software packages, especially when it comes to features like Canvas Size and Layers.
Adobe Photoshop CC is an alternative to traditional Photoshop. It is a graphics editor for photographers, graphic designers, web designers, and those who want to make prints of their images. It contains most of the features of the professional version but with fewer features and a simpler user interface.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom can be used for both sides of your photo workflow, whether it’s managing your photos, or managing your photos in Lightroom. This extremely flexible app is an excellent tool to help you improve the images you take and can be used for editing, retouching, organizing, burning, printing, and sharing digital images. This is probably the most expensive version of Photoshop you can buy, since it is mainly used by professional photographers, graphic designers, and web designers.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 can be used for both sides of your photo workflow, whether it’s managing your photos, or managing your photos in Lightroom. This extremely flexible app is an excellent tool to help you improve the images you take and can be used for editing, retouching, organizing, burning, printing, and sharing digital images. This is probably the most expensive version of Photoshop you can buy, since it is mainly used by professional photographers, graphic designers, and web designers.

An aggressive design and hot-dip galvanizing process have saved 15 percent on production costs for polymer chip resistor manufacturers.
By Howard Gold
One of the most challenging aspects of manufacturing polymers is the need to be able to control resistivity and process variables. That said, getting the resistivity just right is often an art form, with the resulting gap between a good product and a bad one costing manufacturers time, money and frustration. To control process variables, companies need to have accurate data about their components and production, and they need to be able to look at the process outputs from the beginning of the manufacturing run to the end.
However, most manufacturing engineers work on a product-by-product basis, so they usually can’t look at the entire manufacturing process at once. Also, chips are very difficult to test for resistivity and other electrical properties on the production line.
“We have the ability to control all the variations of each resistor, but they’re way too small to look at. In addition, we can’t do it for all of them,” said Tom Chicoine, vice president of engineering at Open View Resistor Corporation, Winston Salem, N.C.
To improve chip reliability, Chicoine formed a joint venture with Applied Engineering Innovations, Orlando, Fla. (AEI), to develop a process that will produce a polymer chip resistor product with higher yield, reduced scrap and better electrical performance. Using AEI’s standard coating system, Open View Resistor is able to apply 14-millimeter-by-14-millimeter sheets of pure or substrate-compatible epoxy over a resistive, silver-plated copper plate to form its polymers. The thin film is then patterned and plated, etched and severed, and finally a lead is applied.
“Our standard coating line handles out-of-spec product as well,” Chicoine said. “Since the resistivity of the chips is controlled precisely, we’re able to save time and money on scrap and production.”
After three months of testing and refining the process, the two companies have finalized the technical details of the design and the control system used on the production line.
“Normally, companies can’t just go to their partner and tell them what they need,” said Mike Johnston, technical director of AEI. “
Higher Health Care Costs Spook Investors and May Slow Economic Growth, Moody’s Reports
Tuesday, May 20, 2014
NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. investors and companies are worried that higher health care costs could sap the economy’s gains and slow the growth of the world’s largest economy in the coming years, Moody’s Investors Service said in a new report.
U.S. consumer confidence unexpectedly dropped in March, indicating that a sharp slowdown in hiring in the first quarter prompted by rising energy prices and other uncertainties may be ramping up in the new year.
In Tuesday’s report, Moody’s said investors and companies had changed their investment strategy to mirror their more conservative view of the economy’s outlook, cutting holdings of stocks and lowering their bets on U.S. corporate earnings.
U.S. shares fell sharply on Monday, with the Dow Jones industrial average down about 100 points, before closing slightly lower. Higher oil prices, tempered by increased supply and growing concerns about the impact of new regulations on crude oil and natural gas production in the United States, weighed on the market, the report said.
Oil prices, however, remained above $100 a barrel on Tuesday, with traders citing demand concerns, while Washington’s plan to tighten regulation of the oil industry became an area of concern for investors.
Moody’s cited investors who said that the close of the U.S. fiscal year with debt reduction, higher taxes and uncertainty about the government’s budget policies should continue to keep them on the sidelines of equities.
The report showed investors’ limited appetite for stock purchases along with the corresponding pullback in valuations, reflecting their expectations of slower economic growth in the second quarter.
In addition, corporate earnings are expected to be lower for the quarter and the year, Moody’s said.
Investors and companies have also placed significantly more money in cash, short-term government bonds and other short-term holdings, the report said.
While consumers are spending less money, businesses are holding back some spending, Moody’s said.
Companies held much of their cash until the beginning of this year and are likely to continue to wait before spending it, particularly amid new concerns about rising interest rates, Moody’s said.Michael Forsyth and Natalia Tymoshenko en route to a Starbucks, February 9, 2019.
