* Figure 3-18 is a picture of the food stylist and hair stylist Laura Cossack and her latest work on the cover of Professional Food Styling (2010). The cover is an illustration of a cake that has been photographed and then made into a silkscreened gelatine print with a candy image of caramel, chocolate, and other candies. The colors in the print have been changed to a natural sunset color. * Figure 3-19 shows the process of creating the gelatine print. The kit is available at most food-product companies, and includes a glass frame and the printing equipment to create a high-gloss silkscreen print. In this illustration, the food stylist employed some of the digital processes discussed in this book. Step by step, Laura converted the photographic document to an L-shaped RGB grayscale image. Then she created a new background layer, and applied a graduated filter to remove the color cast from the color photograph. Then she converted to black and white with a Threshold adjustment, and opened a Levels dialog so that she could enhance the area that the camera didn’t record. Next, she removed unnecessary details with a Curves adjustment layer. This is what Photoshop usually looks like when you go to save the file: **Figure 3-18:** The cover of Professional Food Styling (2010). From here, I go directly to the Illustrator file. Here’s what it looks like: **Figure 3-19:** Creating the gelatine print from a photograph.

Saving and exporting JPGs for the web Most designers save their design for the web in the JPEG format. JPEGs are compatible with almost every web browser and can be printed as well. Here’s how to save a JPEG image and export it to a web page: 1. Open Photoshop. 2. Choose File⇒Save for Web. The Save for Web dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 3-20, and it automatically gives you some options for the name of the file, the location where you want the file to be stored, and a variety of other options. 3.

Filter Gallery and Camera Raw The Filter Gallery is a powerful editing tool with 10 different filter modes that allows you to create expressive images with a wide range of creative effects. Each filter mode can be applied to any image. However, some effects are only available if you use specific filter modes. Using filter modes you can apply shadows, gradients, and textures, and combine them with selective color enhancements to give your images a new look. You can apply one or multiple filter modes at a time. Use Filter Gallery Use the all-new Camera Raw (previously known as Lens Correction) to correct or adjust camera and lens settings. It also has many creative tools, such as grain, clone stamp, and the Radial Filter to adjust the contrast. The unique Sharpening tool lets you adjust the amount and distribution of sharpness to naturally sharpen even soft edges without damaging the original image. Also, the Manual Adjustments tool lets you fine-tune camera white balance, color balance, exposure, contrast, and gamma curves, and more. Camera Raw Command your camera or lens If you change lenses, the effects will be applied to all the images in a sequence. You can use the Sequences tool to apply the same changes to many images in one go. In addition, you can achieve more precise results by using Lens Profile.

You can rotate, scale, flip, move, distort, and remove objects from your photos, just like in traditional images. All objects can be rotated and scaled. Adjust the Rotate and Scale tool 05a79cecff
Uniplex-controlled nematic and cubic phases in a chiral LC mixture of the anionic amphiphilic selenoether with dodecylsulfate. Mixtures of the ammonium self-assembly of a newly synthesized chiral selenoether 1 with dodecylsulfate, (N-alkyltrimethylammonium)2Phenyl, in the same concentration show clear indication of the formation of chiral nematic and cubic phases. The heating thermal cycles of the nematic phase were successfully monitored via the use of specific liquid crystal properties such as the scattering and refractive indices. The average crystal dimensions were also determined from the transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images.Dynamite: The Metal Years Dynamite: The Metal Years is a three-CD box set collecting the first four studio albums and first two live albums by the band DYNAMITE released on October 18, 2005.

After advertising that they will start selling tickets to war games on the Web before too long, popular American strategy game publisher Wizards of the Coast has opened their official Website for D&D as well. Since their asking price for a cardboard box of the game is only $25, it should be a no-brainer to buy a copy for your next game night. The website looks great, it’s full of information on the specific rules for each type of character, and it provides links to all of the D&D books that have been released so far. The only thing missing at the moment is a map of Spelljammer. Also, since we live in the age of easily obtainable digital formats, Wizards of the Coast has released a PDF version of D&D from 1-4. This is available for free download, so if you want to play early on with a bunch of friends, just download the rules now and you’ll have them for a whole weekend of adventuring (and shopping for maps). And of course, there’s D&D Complete, the complete set of the books released to date. If you have any friends who are fans of the game, I suggest ordering them all and dealing them out to them.Comments Regardless of who gets their data stolen, the question of “sitting ducks” is solely in the eye of the holder. I doubt anybody would go out of their way to watch over another person’s computer just to steal their files. Just as of, say, a hack like the Ashley Madison case, where the “data” is the /me/ account file and all the profiles that were on there. If you’ve never found yourself staring at your computer screen saying “oooooh, I look a little cute today, I wonder what it would be like to be intimate with me?”, you might be interested in that kind of thing. If you’re into that kind of thing, I suggest that you go to your local library and check out the card catalog, or ask your friends who have more experience with that sort of thing. They might be more than willing to sit there and tell you to shut the hell up, because you’re weird and you’re embarrassing. If you’re not into that kind of thing, then there’s no reason to care whether your data was dumped or not.
