1. Choose Layer From the Layers Panel Select Layer: Start by placing a new layer in the document.
After clicking the New Layer icon (the small rectangle with a right arrow pointing up) in the Layers panel, enter the name for the new layer in the dialog box that appears. The image shown in the image on the right is a layered document, with the new layer named Layers.
2. Create a New Layer for the Background Create a new layer above the background layer and name it something like Background.
(Note: Text in Photoshop will always be placed on top of all other layers.)
A background layer serves as a “default” layer to which text will be added later. In the photo on the left, the background layer is named Background.
3. Add a Layer Mask to the Background Layer
When using layers as you create and edit an image, you’ll often want to have an editable layer, as well as a layer that is shielded or otherwise hidden from direct editing.
Add a layer mask to the Background layer, which creates an editable mask for the layer.
To add the mask, select the Background layer in the Layers panel by clicking on its thumbnail. The rectangle that appears on the left of the thumbnail will turn a darker shade of gray. Click and drag the mask indicator (the square with a colored symbol at the center of the rectangle) to the left or right on the edge of the image.
Click the name of the layer to edit the name.
To add a layer mask to the Layers panel, first select the layer. Click the Add Layer Mask icon.
You can also use the Layer Mask icon on the Layers panel toolbar (shown in the image below).
(Note: In the image below, the layer mask is shown as gray, as opposed to white, because the layer mask is currently active. To turn off the mask, click on the layer’s name in the Layers panel to hide the layer mask. )
4. Create the Placement Layer
The placement layer is an additional layer that has a reference image on top of it. As you edit the image, the placement layer can easily be moved or deleted.
To create a placement layer, create a new layer and insert an image into it.
Create a new layer using the New Layer icon. With the new layer selected, in the
Adobe Photoshop, In a nutshell, Photoshop is a must-have for anyone who edits photographs, creates graphics, and makes digital art, including web and mobile design. This software works both on the desktop and online via Photoshop.org, or on Android or other mobile devices via Photoshop Mobile. More than 21 million copies of Photoshop have been sold.
Adobe Photoshop is a photographic and graphic design program from Adobe Systems. It is one of the most popular desktop graphics editing tools and is used to create still photos and video on the Web, in art galleries, or print. Like other Adobe products, Photoshop allows you to create, edit, and share photos with other people.
When I say Photoshop I am sure you will think of its famous shortcuts. These shortcuts are really popular among all graphic editors. These shortcuts make it faster and easier to create graphics. But in this post, you will learn the different Photoshop keyboard shortcuts on Windows, Linux and macOS.
It is important to know the shortcuts before you use Photoshop, so you can master them, because these shortcuts are not always there. Photoshop is full of tools, and it is important to know how you can access all of them when you need them.
I will try to give you useful insights about the different Photoshop keyboard shortcuts.
Check out this video tutorial for new Photoshop keyboard shortcuts:
GOTO & The Hit Tool
To access everything in Photoshop, you can use the “Ctrl + I” shortcut. But it is faster to use the shortcut “Ctrl + Alt + I”.
If you hold the “Ctrl” key down, it will take you to the Go menu where you can see all the tools available. But if you hold the “Alt” key down, you will see the tools in the Go menu. If you hold the “Shift” key down, you will see the Go menu with more options.
If you hold the “Shift” and “Option” key down, you can open the Go menu and see all the tools you have in Photoshop.
Finally, if you hold the “Option” key down, you will be able to open the Go menu without the “Shift” key down.
The Go menu gives you a quick list of all the tools. For example, you can see all of the tools used to adjust light and shadow, or to create layers. However, the Go menu isn’t the first thing you see when you open Photoshop, and
A text tool is useful for typesetting and editing other text. It allows you to create, edit and copy text in various fonts, sizes and styles, and can allow you to change text color.
Many effects that are common in other programs can also be found in Photoshop. Effects are typically applied to a selection or layer and then the Photoshop apply it to the whole image.
Photoshop comes with a variety of layers. Layers are like windows on the page where you can work on an image with different tools. The layers can be made visible or hidden when you are working. The layers can also be moved, scaled, positioned, and merged.
Photoshop has a whole range of panels that allow you to view, manage, and use your files, including:
the History panel, which contains several layers of the image you are working on
the Layers panel, which allows you to select which layers to work on
the Adjustment Layers panel, which lets you change the settings of layers that are merged together
the Adjustments panel, which allows you to change the settings of various tools
the Brightness/Contrast panel, which lets you change the brightness and contrast of the image
the Curves panel, which lets you adjust the brightness, contrast, and color of the image
the Curves dialog, which lets you do these things in a more precise way
the Slides panel, which lets you view a slideshow of the image and is a quick way of previewing an image
the Brush panel, which lets you customize the brushes you use for painting and retouching images
Photoshop is part of a series of software applications developed by Adobe Systems, Inc. Photoshop is the flagship product, but it is the Adobe Photoshop Extended (formerly known as Photoshop CS or Photoshop Lightroom) which is the most popular version. Most of the other versions contain the same set of functionality, which includes:
the same tools, panels, and brushes that are included in Photoshop
modifications for the specific version of Photoshop
patches, which modify the software to make it the best version for specific tasks.

UK to back World Cancer Congress in Madrid
Founded in 1978 by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) as a global partnership of scientists, the World Congress on World Cancer Day represents the largest and most comprehensive gathering of medical and scientific opinion dedicated to cancer. It is held every three years in a different country and gathers all scientists and clinicians from around the world working in the field of cancer. Its main objective is to increase our knowledge and provide an opportunity for exchange among all professionals working on the subject.
The 2012 Congress, to be held in Madrid from 11th to 14th September, will welcome scientists from 32 countries, including scientists from the UK, as well as experts and students from all over the world. Among the speakers, Dr. Alain Chene from the University of Washington School of Pharmacy (USA) will share his scientific experience in the development of a new class of anti-cancer drugs while Professor Richard L. Roden from the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center (USA), will focus on the current challenges in the fight against cancer. Dr. Michele Meissner from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (Australia) will present her research on the pharmaceutical activity of a gene, to induce the expression of the nuclear transport factor 2 (NTF2), known to inhibit tumour growth.
The event will gather an important number of specialists, including experts from the UK. The following Medical oncologists and haematologists, Professors Jonathan Adams, Graham Coldwell and David Bourke, will explain the basis of cancer research, will discuss important issues and current priorities in the area of cancer research, and will discuss approaches for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
Dr. Karl Williams from the Regional Cancer Centre at King’s Health Partners (London) will speak of the organisation of cancer services in the North of England, where in the 1990s, one of the most radical reorganisations of cancer services took place. At that time, the Regional Cancer Centre was established, which has developed a team of more than 500 specialists, in order to make cancer services more accessible for the local community. Dr. Jenny Plumb from the Institute of Cancer Research in London will discuss the organisation of UK cancer research networks and discuss how they can be helpful for young scientists from different disciplines, through the creation of an environment that allows them to work together and to disseminate their research.
