Newer versions of the Photoshop program come with a new application, called Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud. Creative Cloud enables you to simultaneously work on multiple projects, access a library of images, and save your work to the cloud for sharing with other Photoshop users.
One of the most valuable and powerful features of Photoshop is layers. Layers are a way of defining different parts of an image. It’s common to create a layer called “Background” and then an additional layer for text or a drawing, for instance.
Each of those layers has different settings. For example, you can make a layer color-adjustable, like the Background layer; make it solid fill; make it transparent; or, you can allow only a portion of the layer to be visible.
You can also apply a filter to a layer, as well as blend modes, clipping masks, and masks for masking over other parts of an image, or just for turning a layer on or off. Layers are great for helping you achieve different effects, such as to create a “framed” effect.
You can also create a new layer (which you can do in any mode) and then blend (or overlay) the two layers together, producing a new image with different parts visible in different layers.
Your Photoshop options panel in the lower-left corner of the screen is where you control the visibility and color-tinting of individual layers.
In this article, we’ll walk through some steps to create a mockup image (fauxd) in Photoshop Elements (Photoshop). The resulting image will look like a cartoon.
We will use Photoshop Elements 12 (Mac or Windows).
Before we begin, create a canvas on which we will develop our mockup. Let’s first create a new Photoshop document.
Step 1: Open Photoshop and create a new document using the Photoshop Elements template.
Step 2: After the document is created, click on File and select Save As.
Step 3: Navigate to a new location and select Save as… and then select Save as type.
Step 4: Enter a name for your document (fauxd), choose Photoshop PSD as the type and click Save.
We’ve now created a new document. We will now add a new color for the purpose of the example.
Step 5: In Photoshop, click on the Background layer and click on the Edit Colors button.
Step 6: In the dialog box, change the Background color to Silver.
Step 7: Once the background is set to Silver, click on Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves.
Step 8: In the Curves Adjustment dialog box, enter -40 in the Y axis and 0 in the X axis.
Step 9: Click OK.
Step 10: We will now select the text in the middle. Right-click on the text and then select Invert from the menu.
Step 11: Invert the text.
Step 12: Duplicate the layer and rename it to inverted. We will hide this layer now. To hide a layer, click on the eye icon on the top-left corner and then hide the layer.
Create the Bullseye: Add Text and a Background
Step 13: To create the focal point, we will add a Bullseye. We will do this in two steps.
First, we will add a new layer to the canvas with the properties:
Gradient: color stop at 81% on top color #5A8FD8 and color stop at 9% on bottom color #029B33
Step 14: We will now set
[Lateral ligament injuries of the ankle].
Lateral ligament injuries of the ankle involve the lateral ankle ligaments. Their incidence is approximately 8% of all ankle injuries. All plantar ligaments have their own names (e.g. the fibular collateral ligament) and all ligaments are characterized by a certain tension value (e.g. 20 N for the anterior talofibular ligament). Injuries of the lateral ankle ligaments are characterized by two types of injuries. The most common are those with a rupture of the anterior talofibular ligament. This ligament is fixed to the calcaneus and to the base of the first metatarsal. The occurrence of a rupture is almost always accompanied by an opening of the lateral ankle mortise. The less frequent injury is a rupture of the calcaneofibular ligament, which is often accompanied by the lateral ligament of the ankle. The occurrence of a rupture is often accompanied by a posteromedial drawer sign. The clinical examination should include a careful inspection of the plantar surface of the foot and the lateral border of the ankle, which may show an evident soft-tissue swelling and an ecchymosis at the lateral malleolus. The x-ray is the most important imaging modality. The conventional x-ray of the ankle is not a good method for the evaluation of the lateral ligament injuries. While the tibiotalar joint is best evaluated with an x-ray of the ankle in varus stress, the evaluation of the posterior talofibular ligament is best performed with an x-ray of the ankle in dorsiflexion. The computed tomography (CT) of the ankle can clarify both the posterior talofibular ligament and the calcaneofibular ligament and thereby reveal their torn or ruptured state. A CT of the ankle may be indicated in those patients with a posteromedial drawer sign and a surgically-proven rupture of the calcaneofibular ligament.When Leila Ilias, a computer science teacher at the Theodore Roosevelt K-8 School in East New York, joined a parent group working to save the public school from privatization she didn’t expect to give her energy and time away from the kids in her classroom. As the parent group focused on teaching the incoming 5th graders about the issues at hand, it didn’t even occur to Ilias that she was also ensuring her students’ education and
A modern electronic eye-brain interaction.
‘Eyes,’ as used for scientific purposes, are contrasted with ‘brain’. Also ‘brain,’ as used for scientific purposes, is contrasted with’mind.’ Mind is contrasted with ’emotion’. Eyes and brains are contrasted with emotions. Concepts of ‘brain’ and’mind’ are identified as variously functional, structural, taxonomic, phylogenetic, and phenomenological. The concept of mind is assessed by criteria of ‘interconnectedness’. The familiar sciences of brain and mind are seen as the most recent phases of biology. Biological ‘black boxes’ are seen as being replaced by ‘white boxes’. Science is seen as a’solution-seeking’ or a ‘problem-solving’ activity. It is also seen as a function of an organism’s ability to focus on its environment, deal with its own biological demands, and translate and process the environment’s information. The conception of ‘brain’ and’mind’ and ’emotion’ as functional, structural, taxonomic, phylogenetic, phenomenological, and connected is applied to the scientific disciplines of biology and psychology. As a result, the modern sciences of brain and mind are seen as being rather similar.Introduction
Episode 07 – A Heart for War
My first time at an on-site event with a prominent voice at ConsenSys.
A lot of times when we talk about digital currencies, we talk about the philosophy of the digital currency, we talk about the economics of the digital currency, we talk about the technology of the digital currency. But what we rarely talk about is the political, philosophical, or ideological aspects of the various cryptocurrencies. That being said, when I first joined ConsenSys in 2014, I was thrilled to learn that we were working with a few different teams on decentralized applications that deal with policy, governance, and legislative concerns.
After spending some time with the Ethereum Foundation’s Policy team, I joined ConsenSys’ Constitution Project team in early 2017 and began working with the team that developed MetaMask.
Last month I was invited to join one of the most important blockchain events of the year: Consensus, in New York City.
Although I did spend a lot of time last week talking about Ethereum and what’s going on in Ethereum 1.0, during the conference, I mostly had the opportunity to talk about a project called Rootstock. This is a project that’s attempting to create a blockchain with cryptoeconomic incentives, private transactions,
