Appendix B tells you how to install Photoshop on a Mac.
# Chapter 1: Getting Started with Photoshop
Beginning photographers can use Photoshop CC, Adobe Lightroom, or both as their first steps toward learning how to manipulate images, as do many photographers using those applications. For non-Photoshop users, Photoshop’s interface is easy to navigate, and its tools make simple changes simple.
If you’re going to use this software to make your photos better or to create a new set of art from scratch, you need to learn how to use the program. Let’s get started with a crash course in the basics of Photoshop.
# 1.1 Exams
If you’re a serious student, you can take the Studio and Web exam mentioned in the book’s introduction. You can find out more about Adobe’s Testing service on the website.
# 1.2 Files and Folders
This book is organized in a new way. You can find all the digital files you need to work through this book, including the PS
There’s a Photoshop software for everyone, and this is an ultimate guide for all Photoshop users, or just beginners who need to use the software.
A beginner should always start with these Photoshop commands:
1- Clipping Tool.
2- Grow Photo Size.
3- Converting Images To Jpeg, or Bicubic interpolation.
4- Smoothing an Image.
The most popular and simplest tool for editing the edges or objects in the background is called Clipping tool.
This tool allows you to add or remove the parts of an image, you can easily manage the edges and objects without the need to know advanced Photoshop techniques.
If you think this tool is complex or hard to use, you will be surprised that it is quite simple and easy to use.
It allows you to copy or remove the image parts and also transform the edges.
You can use it as an alternative to the Quick Selection tool for professional purposes.
How to Use the Clipping Tool?
1- Click on a tool icon in your tool bar. If you don’t see the tool, click on the pencil icon for the normal pencil tool or the curve icon for the Clipping tool.
2- Click once on the image and drag it towards you until it leaves the drawing area, then release the mouse button. A box appears where you can drag the corners.
3- Click and drag inside the box to remove the image or click anywhere outside to remove it. You can also select areas to delete them using the magic wand tool.
Grow Photo Size
This option allows you to increase the size of an image.
In the simplest form, all you need to do is click on the crop icon and drag the box to the sides of your image until you see the ‘$’ sign.
This option is quite easy to use.
Convert Image To Jpeg
Image Jpeg is a common way to compress images so that you can send them through email or post to social media sites.
This option only makes it possible to compress an image. But you can use this method to improve your images because it reduces the file size.
This option is also quite easy to use. Just drag the image to the left until it shows the ‘$’ sign and click to open the dialog box,
SQL Server : Where clause with NULL values in where clause
I am retrieving a nvarchar(MAX) column from a table.
This column contains null and white spaces.
I am retrieving a no. of records from that column.
Lets say in the where clause i have
where col1 = 1 OR (col1 IS NULL AND col1 IS NULL)
This query will fail, because both null values are not equal to 1
is there any way I can write it without handling these null values?
As the other answers mentioned, use coalesce() instead of OR.
However, if this is an option for you, then the following should work for you (suggesting that if it is a MAX it might be nullable):
WHERE col1 = 1
OR (COALESCE(col1, ”) = 1)
But you need to be aware that, if not nullable, this will return a different count than if nullable.
I agree with David.
I have to add that you can use IS NULL AND IS NOT NULL with COALESCE.
The result will be the same as in David’s solution.
BUT you should be aware that the table is ordered in such a way that any execution plan will favor the execution of the first part.
In your example, the first part would be
col1 = 1 OR (col1 IS NULL AND col1 IS NULL)
Which in turn will evaluate to
col1 = 1 OR (col1 IS NULL)
That means if col1 is equal to 1, or col1 isn’t, the result will be the same. BUT IF col1 IS NULL then the result will be
col1 IS NULL

Carlo Ancelotti may not have been a striker at Chelsea.
But the Italian has more than made up for that shortcoming by being a master of the art of finishing in recent years.

Are you a food lover who’s bored with eating the same old food day in and day out? I once had a friend who bought the same meal every single time she visited the dining hall. You can opt for the burgers and fries, I know, but it’s not the best option! If you aren’t looking for a quick and easy meal at the dining hall, you might want to take a trip to the grocery store with your dining hall ID. Here are some foods that are on sale at the dining hall and can be taken home and prepared, thus saving you precious dollars:
Popular items on sale at the dining hall:
Cheese Burger (made of cheese, not the other kind!)
In addition to the meals at the dining hall being on sale, here are some other ways to save a little:
Shop at the dining hall first. There are times when the prices are higher at the dining hall than they are at the grocery store, but there are also times when the prices are lower.
Use coupons for your food purchases
Wear cloth shoes when you go grocery shopping. Cloth shoes are much more comfortable and they can save you money.
The dining hall at my school doesn’t always have a meal that is healthy. They do have salad and boiled eggs, but you can’t take home any of these items. No problem, you can pack your food in a reusable container and take it home. (Don’t forget to bring your ID!)
Sometimes the dining hall has fried food that’s not healthy for you. This is also a great opportunity for you to grab a handful of popcorn.
My dad likes to get a baked good from the cafeteria. This is actually an expensive food option, because they charge $1 for the baked good. However, if he eats a baked good, he can’t have another food option during lunch. If you have a good baked good that’s on sale, you can buy it and you’ll still be able to eat another meal!
I hope this post has helped you decide what meals you can take home from the dining hall. The post will be back next week with more information about healthier dining hall meals!
