Photoshop provides a number of ways to work with layers. In order to create a new layer, the user must first create a selection. You can use the Selection Brush, Lasso, or Magnetic Lasso. You can also create a selection from a path, a list of points, or a selection on another object. In addition, Photoshop provides many useful tools for creating vector shapes from scratch, or for modifying existing paths to build new shapes. Here, we show you how to create new layers, use the Lasso tool, and retouch images. We also demonstrate how to use the Magic Wand tool, the Eraser tool, and the Clone Stamp tool to work with layers.
When you create a new layer you can specify a name for it. You can then move your image around on the Layer panel to see your new layer anywhere on the image window, which is where you will paint or retouch your image.
In this exercise, you’ll create a new layer on an image that contains some unwanted elements.
To begin, open a new file in Photoshop and select the Pen Tool from the Toolbox. Click on the photo in the canvas to start creating a layer. When the vector objects in the image are selected, you see the active selection. Figure 1.1 displays a small selection in an image that illustrates how to create a new vector object.
**Figure 1.1** : Creating a vector object from a selection
After you create a vector object with the Pen Tool, select the Quick Selection tool and click on the objects in the image to create a new vector object. The Quick Selection tool allows you to create either a closed shape or a selection around an object without the need to create a selection.
In Figure 1.2, the Quick Selection tool is selected; after the initial click, additional clicks narrow the selection, which makes it easier to select only the area where the selected object is found in the image. When the last click is made, the selection is complete.

The Quick Selection tool is particularly useful for selecting objects such as leaves, flowers, and other elements that have an irregular shape. The tool lets you manipulate the selection without the need to create a selection first.
Once you have a selection, you can use the Lasso tool to select the area inside the vector object. Select the Lasso tool from the Tool

A lot has changed in the graphic design and editing industry since Elements first appeared on the market in 1997.

Photoshop was originally created for photos but it was the first in a line of professional editing software created by Adobe.
Today, Photoshop is used for editing a variety of images — from photographs to logos and advertisements. Many photographers use Photoshop to edit their photos. It is the workhorse of graphic designers and web designers, too.
There are many graphic editors, graphic design programs and Photoshop alternatives for all types of users, but none comes close to Photoshop’s popularity or usefulness.
Other names for Photoshop include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe image-editing software, Adobe Photoshop maker, Photoshop Elements. Photoshop is an editing tool that was originally created by Adobe and has become the industry standard.

How Photoshop Elements Works
A common misconception about software is that the program is “hard to use.” There is a lot of software
Clackamas County SEPTA Station
The Clackamas County SEPTA Station is a bus and rail transit station, and the current terminus for light rail in the TriMet MAX Orange Line, serving Portland, Oregon. It is operated by Clackamas Transit Center, a regional public transportation agency for the area. The station is located at Southwest Barbur Boulevard and Highway 99E in the west end of downtown.
The station was originally built in 1958 for the Portland and Western Railroad. The transit center was relocated to its current site in 2004. At that time, the north transit mall and connecting streets were closed to traffic, and buses made a loop around the transit center to nearby MAX Orange Line platforms.
The MAX Orange Line platform opened on October 2, 2009.

When journalist Nate Polarski is investigating the death of Thomas Caulfield, the young scholar’s roommate, he discovers he shares some of the last moments of the murdered man’s life. With the police focused on a woman who may have killed Caulfield, Nate turns his attention to the scholar’s former mentor, the town’s notoriously antisemitic priest, and the small circle of thechosen, those few who have the power to open and close doors to the supernatural realm. With the help of the chosen, Nate discovers that behind Caulfield’s seemingly ordinary life lies a startling truth about a secret group of powerful Jews known as the Order of the East, who use magic to control the stock market and other unsuspecting citizens of New York City.
As he attempts to unveil the secrets of the Order and fight them for control of the city, Nate must decide whose truth he can believe in—his own or the rumor that the Order, which has existed for
Few words can make a player’s move a success or failure than the name of their professional club.
The pinnacle of international football for men is represented by the 34 different nations that compete for the FIFA World Cup. Each individual team plays just a handful of games a year, at home or away, whereas the MLS plays 40 games a year.
There is a clear-cut separation between the north and south halves of the league, a separation that often extends to the dressing room. MLS fans look at the Houston Dynamo as a club that calls itself, “Houston’s Team, the Texas Dynamo.”
The Washington Spirit’s soccer team dominates the local market and loads its roster with area players, even though other local teams have been considered part of the “capital territory” for most of the club’s history. The Vancouver Whitecaps are located in British Columbia, not the traditional “San Juan Islands” even though the club has its headquarters in the city.
There is no club named the Vancouver Whitecaps.
According to Wikipedia, it is the same with the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC, but at least for a time in its history the MLS franchise shared its name with its Canadian brethren.

The Vancouver Whitecaps have been a part of MLS since 2006, and their name has also been part of the league, but not for three years.
The MLS has settled on a name for the Whitecaps, and according to the team’s website, that name will appear on the clubs jerseys in 2013.
It’s the same name the professional club adopted in 1996.
The 1996 Whitecaps were located in Vancouver, and were coached by former player and Coach of the Year, Gary Mullan. The team finished seventh overall in the league and made it through the playoffs, but was beaten in a penalty shootout by the LA Galaxy in the Western Conference semi-final.
It was the first and only season the league used the name “Whitecaps,” although one would have expected a trade from “Vancouver Whitecaps” to “Vancouver Whitecaps FC” at some point.
This historic brand change was not without pain. At the time, the team had not secured a stadium, and had to play most of its home games in Victoria, which is located one ferry ride south of Vancouver. Many saw the split as a sign of disunity, a group of Canadian owners entering an American league and a predominantly American front office.
