A professional Photoshop program such as Photoshop CS2 can cost more than US$400.
Wondering if Photoshop is the right program for you? Refer to the section, “What’s the difference between Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Photoshop CS?”, later in this chapter, for tips on working with this powerful image-editing tool.
Photoshop is powerful, but it has a steep learning curve. It’s also big, heavy, and expensive, so you may want to consider alternatives.
Despite its complexity and the steep learning curve, Photoshop is an excellent and well-regarded tool for image manipulation. You can quickly change the entire appearance of an image by using layer masks and masking tools. You can also adjust colors, levels, and other parameters. Just be sure to do your homework before you start altering images! Photoshop has some very capable expert users; however, be aware that you can hurt your image if you edit it incorrectly or don’t test your changes carefully. (See the nearby sidebar, “Photoshop for beginners” for more information.)
Photoshop includes a variety of tools and features that you can use to modify and create images. You can set a layer to be either a regular layer or a clipping layer. A clipping layer is a way of working on an image by using a selection on the page as the clipping area. You can also create your own layers to manipulate the entire image. To do so, open an image by clicking its thumbnail and pressing Ctrl+N (Mac OS: Cmd+N). You can then drag a new layer onto the file, right-click the layer thumbnail, and select New, Clipping Layer from the menu.
Photoshop includes some really neat features, including the ability to easily apply or remove a different image from an image. You can even do an action to apply an effect to an image automatically. For example, you can resize an image, make it black and white, or even reverse the image. You can also use actions to make a programmable sequence of edits to an image in the future. You can create a collection of actions that you can use to manipulate hundreds of images at once. This is a great feature if you have a lot of images to use in a project.
This chapter also covers alternatives to Photoshop, but Photoshop continues to be the industry standard.
Designing for Web
After you create a digital image for publication, you may want to use it on the Web.
2. The Touch Bar
You can do just about any graphic design task on Photoshop by using the display’s Touch Bar. Touch controls will appear on the touch screen as you pass your finger over them. Photoshop Elements isn’t really designed to do touch controls. However, Elements’s Touch tools are built on the same Touch Bar code.
You will need to cut, copy, paste, and replace to change things on the Touch Bar. And, to change the Touch Bar you have to edit the file in Elements. But, there is something in Photoshop Elements.
Original Photoshop, Elements, and Photoshop Touch
This feature is designed to “Reset” the Touch Bar settings.
How does it work?
Go to Image/Adjustments/Effects/Reset Touch Bar (as shown in the illustration above). The Touch Bar settings will reset to the default settings.
How to use it?
At the Touch Bar, you can edit how the controls are displayed, their position on the Touch Bar, and the color of the controls. However, you cannot change the Touch Bar code. You only can reset the Touch Bar.
You cannot adjust the Touch Bar for everyone but you can reset it to the default settings.
You can reset the Touch Bar even after the photo has been edited.
However, using this option or editing the touch bar code may interfere with installing new additions such as newer versions of Photoshop Touch. So, if you are using Photoshop Touch and want to reset the Touch Bar code, make sure you do it before you install the latest version of Photoshop Touch.

Touch tools in Photoshop Touch
There are 2 versions of Photoshop Touch:
– The full version of Photoshop Touch (included with Photoshop CS6)
– The Lite version, which is only available for Mac
You can also buy Photoshop Touch as a standalone app.
– Photoshop Touch is an excellent companion to Photoshop. For example, you can zoom in and out of images, make selections, re-size images and more.
– Photoshop Touch combines many of the powerful features of Photoshop. The app lets you make selections,
Living donor transplantation: the Wisconsin experience.
Living donor transplantation (LDRT) is generally viewed as an alternative to deceased donor transplantation and, because of this, it is considered to have lower donor-recipient matching. The history of LDRT in the United States has been a checkered one. The University of Wisconsin has developed a protocol to promote the clinical application of LDRT. Over a 2-year period the Wisconsin LDRT program included 98 patients. The two most common indications for this procedure were nephroblastoma, which was in 56 patients, and renovascular hypertension, in 12 patients. Patients were selected for LDRT only if they had an excellent survival expectation and in whom the donors were also recipients of kidney transplants or other solid organ transplants. Patients were transplanted with the entire graft, and there were no initial restrictions on cold ischemia time. The donors were matched in three groups: group I matched 1:1; group II matched 2:1; and group III matched 3:1. The average donor:recipient weight ratio was 0.80:1 (range 0.47:1 to 1.45:1). Donors and recipients were closely monitored for survival and quality of life after transplantation. The results show that LDRT is acceptable to patients and physicians and that quality of life is not impaired by the procedure.Dawn of War 3
Cadets play in the Dawn of War 3 beta
If you’ve played the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series at all, you’ll know that part of the series’ distinguishing factor is its tendency to be strung out over large areas of land, rather than tethered to a single battleground. So it was no surprise that you could enjoy a skirmish or two of Dawn of War 3 on the iPad, or even by jumping into your Steam account. But the beta was focused on the campaign, so I found myself wondering how the battle mechanics would pan out on a mobile device.
I won’t lie to you: it doesn’t necessarily work.
Even when playing with my own iPad 4, I found the movement and camera control to be difficult to work with, despite the game supporting the touch controls which a lot of mobile games still don’t utilize. I could move my units with on-screen arrows that I clicked to set the destination, so it was doable, but it
We have been following the progress of The Moment, an art-house film that takes us on a roller coaster ride between Norway and Los Angeles. It’s a film that seems to be on the inside of the Zeitgeist, or to borrow a phrase from the director/writer/story supervisor Alister Grierson, like looking through a series of windows to where we want to go. Why…
Adriana N. was up in ICVAHACK to study some of the things we do to build and develop code. Here’s what she had to say:
“The most exciting thing I learned was the open source projects that ICE is working on, that is a challenge that we have to work on the dynamic changes of the project. This is very cool, its something very interesting to me.”
“I enjoyed the classes that teach how to build a computer on a small scale, using a micro controller or learn how to do the programming. I am very interested to see that it will be used to develop new products for the future. I would be very interested to receive some advice from the…
Nina M. writes us:
“With this class I am excited to learn a lot about the courses and then pass them onto my brother. I’m really interested in how computer programming has changed and advanced and so I thought this would be a good way to learn about the future of it.”
“I was already interested in the creative arts so when I attended this class I was happy to learn how computer’s can be used to create things that I never thought they could. I am looking forward to the end of the course and seeing what my brother comes up with…”
“This course has made me feel confident in my coding ability and its helped me build a good understanding of how computer programs work. I’m looking forward to working in computer programming fields now.”
“This has been a great course and I’m excited to see what will happen in the future. I’m really interested in the course work, it has been very helpful.”
“I was surprised by the content of the course, even though I always knew that computers had been around for a long time. I’m looking forward to pursuing this course in the future.”
