Adobe Photoshop CS2 (CS2) is a version of Photoshop that now costs $649, and it has all the features of Photoshop CS3. Chapter 2 has more information on your version.
Photoshop CC (CC) is the version of Photoshop that comes with the new Creative Cloud service, and it has the same features as Photoshop CS6, with the exception that it is not a version of Photoshop CS6.
Understanding Photoshop Layers
Photoshop works almost entirely by manipulating a background layer called the drawing layer, which is also known as the main layer. All your image’s edits are made on this layer and then applied to the layer above it, which is called the background layer. You can determine which layer is the background layer by clicking it to open the Layers panel. You can also change the layer’s background color or transparency by clicking the layers panel and choosing any of the layer tools listed in Figure 12-1.
**Figure 12-1:** After creating layers, you apply your image editing to the layers in Photoshop.
If your aim is to have a finished image, you can use the layers to chain together all of the photo’s editing and clipping areas, producing the final image. If you’re working on a design or using one of Photoshop’s special-effects features, like the Liquify filter, you can use layers to break up an image into segments or sections, letting you apply different effects or techniques to different portions of your image.
After you work on a design, you can use an image-editing program called Bridge to add and organize the same images from your camera into your workspace. This program enables you to select and add all of your images to your computer based on your needs. In this way, Bridge is the default organizer of an image.
Exploring the interface
Photoshop’s interface is similar to a drawing program. You use tools to create layers, and all your layers become components of the image.
The Layers panel (as shown in Figure 12-2) groups your layers into stacks. You can have as many layers as you want. You can have a stack for the entire image, each layer having a different tone or intensity of color, a stack for different elements in your image, or a stack for each of the steps in the image editing process. To add a new layer to an image, simply click the New Layer icon in the Layers panel.
Do you want to learn Photoshop Elements?
Because Photoshop Elements is a bit more difficult to learn and get used to, I recommend that you spend more time on Adobe Photoshop.
You might want to learn Elements because you have a cheap or free copy of Photoshop that you want to edit photos with, and you want to be able to save images without having to purchase a copy of Photoshop. If you want to be able to make web graphics with Elements, you can use a web browser to make web graphics like a web designer.
In this tutorial, I’ll take you through the basics you need to know to use Photoshop Elements for web graphics or a poster. As you follow along, you’ll learn Photoshop Elements, graphic design and web design principles, including:
Adobe Photoshop Elements is a part of Photoshop — it is not a standalone program. So, you need to have Photoshop.

The Kubernetes Fund aims to create a community to bring together all of the parties needed to create, deploy and scale a Kubernetes-based application.
Founded by Red Hat, Inc., the Kubernetes Fund is committed to “putting the developer in control of his or her fate” by creating a community that makes it easier to deploy and scale a Kubernetes-based application.
By funding and actively participating in core Kubernetes projects, the Kubernetes Fund helps solve the barrier-to-entry that stands in the way of adoption of Kubernetes for general use.
Founding Mission and Goals
The founding mission of the Kubernetes Fund is to build out core Kubernetes and make it easier for developers to use it.
The Kubernetes Fund is building a community of people that want to solve a common set of problems, make and change the code that solves those problems, and build and grow Kubernetes infrastructure and community support around the world.
The Kubernetes Fund will do this primarily by funding and participating in core Kubernetes projects, and by developing our own software for users. The fund will also try to support companies who want to engage deeply in the community.
What It Does and How It Works
The Kubernetes Fund supports key Kubernetes projects such as Helm, CI/CD tools such as Tilera, the Kubernetes API and tools for monitoring Kubernetes, as well as helping to drive the Kubernetes community and movement through activities such as the Kubernetes Summits and Code of Conduct.
The Kubernetes Fund will also play a key role in making the Kubernetes community, especially community developers, feel welcome and part of the Kubernetes community.
How to Apply
To apply to the Kubernetes Fund, submit an application on the form below, and then add your DVC commit number to the application.
You can also contact the Kubernetes Fund directly if you would like to learn more about the Fund or have any questions.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and applications will be evaluated using a points system, with the maximum points awarded for active participation in the fund.Q:

The prevalence of schizophrenia is not constant across the lifespan. In early life, the risk of experiencing schizophrenia typically rises over the first 10 years and decreases from adolescence to adulthood. A second peak in risk for schizophrenia is observed at around age 25 (coinciding with the years of highest earnings in the United States) followed by an expected decline thereafter. The rationale for this age-by-age pattern of schizophrenia risk is unknown, but various lines of research suggest that it may reflect a constitutional vulnerability that is exacerbated by environmental events at these specific ages. This may be particularly true for adolescents, whose brains are undergoing considerable neurodevelopmental changes. This competing continuation (A1) proposes a new approach toward understanding the etiology of schizophrenia, which seeks to identify brain-based characteristics that co-vary with schizophrenia risk across the lifespan, in part by adopting a systems perspective that studies functional changes at the level of interacting brain systems. The central hypothesis is that brain dynamics in a broad range of functional domains, including the intrinsic brain activity underlying resting state, the strength of cognitive control over these dynamics, and the extent to which those functions are disrupted by the negative symptoms of schizophrenia, predict the risk of developing and/or maintaining the illness across the lifespan in men and women. By performing state-of-the-art analyses on multimodal, simultaneous, and longitudinal data acquired in more than 500 subjects, this study will test whether stress- and social-cognitive impairments and variations in the neural dynamics underlying those functions are risk factors for schizophrenia. In addition, by examining how the brain dynamics associated with those functions change across the lifespan, this study will address whether the same underlying mechanisms are associated with schizophrenia risk across the lifespan. This approach could also be applied to other mental disorders, and identify biomarkers of vulnerability that could be used to identify individuals at risk of developing future illness. The large sample size of this study, which is expected to include 400 men and women with schizophrenia, 400 matched controls, and 200 unaffected siblings, along with detailed longitudinal follow-up of the subjects, will enable the robust detection of patterns of brain dynamics associated with schizophrenia risk across the lifespan.Pages
