This program is often associated with creating simple line drawings and paintings. There is, however, a surprisingly capable version of Paint and, along with that, a few extras that make it useful for manipulating images.
The Paint program supports multiple windows, and you can save an image to the **Windows Clipboard**. You can also open **Microsoft Office** documents and save them to the Clipboard for editing in the future. You can draw simple lines (using the standard Pen tool), rectangles, and circles using the standard tools, or use some of the additional tools to create complex and creative effects on the saved image. Figure 12-5 shows a simple example of an image created in Paint
You can learn Photoshop Elements by using the tutorial below.
First, we’ll go over the Photoshop Elements search and finder.
This tutorial will walk you through the steps to search for a specific filter (or ask a deeper question about creating a new filter) and use the filter by clicking on it from the Elements Search window.
Step 1: Open Photoshop Elements
The steps in this tutorial should work for Mac and PC.
If you want to create a new filter to use in Photoshop Elements 11, download the Photoshop Elements 11 app (this is a trial version, if you like it, you can purchase a license for $49).
Go to the Windows or Mac desktop and start Photoshop Elements.
Step 2: Open a new document
Locate a blank Photoshop file. We’re going to make a brand new document that you can start with a new filter that you’ll make.
For this example, we’re going to make a blank B&W photograph using a filter called Violet UV.
If you go to the top menu and select File → New, then select a PSD file.
Select Photoshop Elements as the program you’re creating the new document in.
If you want to create a new filter, select Filters → New Filter → Blur → Discrete Gaussian Blur.
This new filter should have a dropdown menu called “Give an output name”. If you select that, it will prompt you for an output name.
Select “Violet UV” as the output name.
Step 3: Create a Filter
Click on the Filter menu on the menu bar.
This menu is divided into four main areas; Filters, Adjustments, Conversions and Paths.
The Filters menu includes filters that can be used to create new images. Adjustments includes a collection of sliders and controls to create new editing effects.
The Conversions menu has options to change the colors, make grayscale images, or turn images into monochromatic images. The Paths menu is similar to the Paths found in other Adobe graphics apps.
In this example, we’ll find and apply a filter called the Discrete Gaussian Blur (or DGB).
Step 4: Search for the filter
The Filter menu includes a search bar. If you

The characteristics of families that develop cancer suggest that screening of relatives of individuals with hereditary cancer can increase the detection of cancers at early stages when cure is more likely
Defining the injury-recovery process in matched patients with acute spinal cord injury.
Injury characteristics and recovery patterns are needed to identify key intervention points and therapeutic windows. The objective of this study was to identify relationships between the injury-recovery process and functional recovery after acute spinal cord injury. The study cohort included 37 patients with complete injury to the spinal cord at T6 (high cervical injury) who were admitted to the National Spinal Cord Injury Center between January 2009 and December 2010. The peak level of injury was the cervical spine, and injuries were caused by a fall. The neurological injury was graded as grade A (median), grade B (tetraplegia) and grade C (paraplegia). General Linear Models were used to examine the relationship between initial injury level, recovery time and neurological level of injury. The injury-recovery process had strong associations with initial neurological grade and the number of days since injury. An average injury-recovery process sequence for each grade of neurological injury is presented. Within this process, the longer that an injury remained untreated, the longer recovery time (including ‘wasted’ recovery). Key features of the injury-recovery process can be used to predict recovery potential in acute spinal cord injury and to define therapeutic windows for intervention and/or prevention of secondary injuries.Every night, the whole office goes out for Thai food. Chinese food, Indian food, Korean food—you name it, we’re doing it. And we’re not the only ones indulging: Mintel found that food-out-to-eat (FOODO) accounts for $3 billion of consumers’ total grocery spending this year in the United States.
And we’re not talking about a few giant, shared meals. According to the research, we’re eating out at least four times a week. And we’re not the only ones—thirty-three percent of Americans (or 1 in 3) go out for FOODO at least once a week, compared to just 14 percent who go out for Chinese takeout.
These days, dining out is seen as a way to indulge. After all, who needs a home cook when there are so many delicious options? This is true, but we’ve come to feel a little trapped—if we order an entree, we’re stuck with the leftovers. Why not create your own one-pot-meal?
Cooking at home can be an excellent way to make the most
