The general-purpose image editors mentioned earlier in this chapter offer some similar features to Photoshop but aren’t nearly as powerful.
Predictably, Photoshop has many variations and options for the specialized needs of different types of people. For example, it has Auto-Leveling and other features that help to correct images with perspective. It can create a range of output sizes for printing from the original image. It offers commands that enable you to work with color, render to transparencies, and generate layers that help you to work on multiple layers of an image at the same time.
The following sections walk you through the Photoshop interface and explain its common features. You may want to refer to the box on the next page at this point so that you’re familiar with the tools you see and the terminology you see while working with this program.
Understanding Photoshop’s components
The Photoshop workspace displays a thumbnail-sized image window and a color palette that lets you view layers and other information. Click the Type tool to open the Font dialog box (refer to Figure 5-3), which enables you to change the font style and size that characters in an image appear with. Click the Size tool to open the Image Size dialog box (refer to Figure 5-3), which enables you to change the size, aspect ratio, or resolution of an image.
The Layers panel, shown in Figure 5-7, is on the left side of the Photoshop window. You can use it to view and organize layers and to create and manipulate masks for them.
**Figure 5-7:** Layers enable you to manage multiple image edits.
In the Layers panel, the active layer is a dark gray (the default color) and is indicated with a green border. You can click the gray square to make this layer active or inactive. A layer can be shown or hidden by clicking its name. The layer name can be dragged to rearrange the order of layers in the panel.
In the Layers panel, the four main areas of a layer’s information are
• Information: The top icon represents any of the layer’s options and settings. The options available depend on the type of layer. You can change the name of this layer by double-clicking its name or by selecting the layer name in the area on the right side of the Layers panel and then right-clicking and choosing Rename Layer. You can use the panel’s down menu to view the layer’s

Exercise and long-term health.
Exercise has been shown to offer a number of general health benefits. It may have specific effects on mental and physical health or even survival. This review will focus mainly on the association between exercise and physical health. The evidence is less clear for longer-term effects of exercise on life expectancy. Only some of the potential mechanisms for the health benefits of exercise have been identified and these are discussed, along with other possible explanations. The effect of exercise on health may be mediated through a number of mechanisms including changes in cardiorespiratory function, body temperature regulation, and psychological factors.

It’s part of a larger effort to help the homeless, other vulnerable populations and the homeless during the weather season.
“We are in a season of need,” said Karen Halliday with the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
“Winter is quite a significant one for homelessness in our city.”

At the city’s official count of homeless people, which is done once a year, homelessness was on the rise.
It was at the highest point ever recorded in 2016.
“We’ve been working through the winter on some of those hot spots that were really difficult to get around in the winter,” said Karen Halliday.

“Last year, we had 2,900 persons sleeping on the street during the cold weather months of November, December and January,” said Halliday.
She said there was a reduction this year, but not enough to meet the standard set by the province.
The homeless and people experiencing mental health challenges are now being served by the city’s new winter warming station. It’s a temporary space where people can come and sit in chairs.
Halliday said Calgary’s homeless continue to face high rates of poverty and substance use.
“The biggest issue that we’re facing are mental health crises that are interacting with homelessness,” said Halliday.
“People who have been experiencing homelessness are more likely to have experienced trauma or substance use.”
