Working with Photoshop’s Tools
Photoshop has a wide range of tools. The image shown in Figure 2-1, for example, is a landscape image with a boat on the far left, a tree on the upper right, and a blue sky on the lower right. To give the image a more serious, corporate look, you can use the Clone Stamp (the image-editing tool that we discuss in this section), Distort, Healing, and Adjust layers to give it new life.

With Photoshop, you have a choice of how to work:
* **You can access Photoshop in either an edit or a view mode.** In edit mode, you can move, rotate, resize, and edit layers — all the basic editing you need to make a nondestructive image. In view mode, you can see what’s on your document, but you can’t work on it.
I choose edit mode most of the time. You may want to switch to edit mode only for the first part of a task, and then return to view mode before you save or print.
* **To access Photoshop’s tools, you have two ways.** Either press the space bar or click the toolbox buttons on the toolbars. The toolbox is found on the top toolbar, as shown in Figure 2-2. If you click the toolbox to open it, you see a menu of tools and the toolboxes available to use them. You also see the toolbox open on the menus that appear when you press the letter in the toolbox’s menu bar.
By default, the top toolbox includes the following tools:
* **Eraser:** This tool removes pixels from the image. It can take some time to erase an area, so if you press the Eraser tool and choose a large area to erase, you may end up with unintended results.
* **Lasso:** This tool uses an adjustable polygonal line to select an area for adjusting.
* **Magic Wand:** This tool uses white to select areas of a photo — like a bright face in a dark image.
Photoshop stands out as a powerful image editing app, and software tutorials for this program can be found on the web for everyone from beginners to professionals.
This post will list down easy tips to get you started. They are grouped into different categories. After reading this post, you will know how to edit and improve the quality of your images, in a short period of time.
Read on to learn how to edit and improve the quality of your images in Photoshop Elements.
Choppy or blurry images in the photo are not appealing to most of us. Imagine how much less appealing our photos would be if some of them were blurry.
If you follow a rule, you can prevent this phenomenon. That rule is Lens Blur. Lenses create blurred images to create depth and focus in an image.
Now, you may be thinking, “How does one remove blurry images.”
When you create a new document in Photoshop Elements with a RAW format, by default, you will get a high-quality image. But, that image is unedited. To edit images, you must apply a filter called “Lens Blur”.
This filter simulates an ideal blur (distance) of the lens in all directions. It is applied on the entire photograph.
1. Go to menu Bar / Filter / Lens Blur and select the “add” option.
2. Select the “add blurred” filter.
3. Uncheck the “apply on all layers” and “apply to content only”.
4. Click on the “OK” button to apply filter.
5. Click on the “Edit” tab to view the lens blur filter settings.
You can change the distance of the lens blur, and the amount of blur.
The larger the distance, the more blur you will have in your image.
The larger the amount of blur, the more effect you will have on the image.
A high-quality photograph will have an amount of blur of about 10px. It is a good starting point. It is only needed for portraits and most types of photography.
How to Sharpen Images
When you apply a background (solid color) to your image, it will make the image look dull. If you have ever edited pictures in Photoshop, you will know that unsharpened
Colors can have different tones, variations, and tints. In Photoshop, you can work with colors in several ways: by using the Color Picker, working with Color Profiles, changing color tones with Levels, or editing the RGB color of a pixel in an image. This chapter shows you all these methods.
Updating bios as a team is a great idea. Another form of collaboration is to create a wiki. There are alot of different things you can do in a wiki, but a great way to have a global view of your bioses is to create one that links to the files on your hard drive and be sure that you update your own bios in the same format each time.
Another application of a wiki is that you can write stuff in it and others can read it. It is almost like a sort of collaboration between the bios and the wiki.
Here is a link to an excellent guide for how to set up a basic bios with a wiki:Encouraging and facilitating partnership for health promotion: lessons from the construction of Eurydice’s programme.
As health care becomes increasingly privatised, public programs, like Eurydice (Living With Epilepsy in New Zealand), play a central role in ensuring that their members do not fall through the cracks. This article outlines the challenges that Eurydice faces in partnering with a large New Zealand health care provider who had not previously coordinated services. It draws on an ethnographic study in a North Island city over a 14-month period. This study explores the complexities of Eurydice’s relationship with this provider, summarising it as a practice of encouraging partnership to facilitate health promotion. Institutional discourses and efforts to maintain control have made it difficult for Eurydice to work with the provider’s health care team, and to provide ongoing services to members. At the same time, however, the relationship has been central to Eurydice’s survival and growth, ensuring its community base, membership, and financial viability.Q:
