# Chapter 3: Getting Started with Adobe Photoshop Elements
Photoshop Elements is a photo editing application that can be used to create and edit JPG, GIF, JPEG, and TIFF files, as well as RAW images from digital cameras and scanners.
In this chapter, you’ll learn the basics of using Photoshop Elements so you’ll be ready to create and edit images. You’ll learn how to import and organize digital images, change their color, and modify their brightness and contrast, as well as how to perform simple retouching.
# Getting Started with Photoshop Elements
I teach my workshops using Photoshop Elements because I find it’s much easier for most people to jump right in and try this program for themselves, instead of having to read a lengthy instruction manual first. I love the intuitive interface and easy-to-use tools that can be used in a short amount of time.
We start with the basics here, so if you’re looking to create your first image, you’ll be armed with the tools and techniques you need to get started.
The workbook is divided into two parts: a guide to using the Photoshop Elements application for a couple of hours, and a tutorial on how to create your first digital photo.

The safety and efficacy of metoprolol and atenolol were compared in a multicenter, double-blind, randomized study of patients with essential hypertension. After a 3-week placebo period and for 6 weeks, patients were treated with metoprolol, 50 to 200 mg once daily (n = 112), or atenolol, 50 to 200 mg once daily (n = 124). Each drug was compared with placebo. On average, both active treatments lowered mean supine and upright blood pressure by 23 and 15 mm Hg, respectively. The percentage of patients whose supine systolic blood pressure was reduced by 20 mm Hg or more was similar in each treatment group (73% and 78% for metoprolol and atenolol, respectively). After an additional 2-week placebo-free period, the double-blind phase ended; the treated patients were followed for an additional 12 weeks. During the double-blind phase, 24% of metoprolol-treated patients and 29% of atenolol-treated patients had a blood pressure below 140/90 mm Hg on their last visit, versus none in the placebo group. Both drugs were well tolerated, with a similar incidence of side effects; 7% of patients in the metoprolol group and 7% in the atenolol group had a blood pressure below 90 mm Hg. Mean supine heart rate declined in patients treated with metoprolol (-4.3 bpm) and atenolol (-7.6 bpm) compared with placebo (-8.6 bpm). Atenolol produced a more marked decrease in mean supine pulse pressure (-17.6 vs -11.2 mm Hg for metoprolol) in the long-term use, whereas there was no difference between the active drugs with regard to any other blood pressure or pulse pressure variables. Metoprolol and atenolol appeared to be equally effective in reducing blood pressure; however, atenolol was more effective in significantly lowering pulse pressure, perhaps
Effects are a great way to transform your photos into something that you can use for a wide variety of purposes, such as web pages and ads, greeting cards, brochures, and other print and online media. They are also commonly used by designers for illustration and retouching. There are numerous effects that Photoshop has available to you. You can access them from the Effects panel or the Effects menu. Photoshop effects are usually categorized into categories such as Enhance, Retouch, and Special Effects.
Photoshop has many artistic fonts that you can use to add more polish to your text. Many fonts have more than one font style, or weight, and you can often use a combination to come up with something that you are proud of. Fonts are very useful for creating typography on web pages and any other type of print and online media.
Brushes are used to paint or erase sections of an image. You can use this tool in a variety of ways, including correcting focus, filling empty areas, blending (using other layers) and deleting or erasing.

MySQL join on same user table
Is there a way to do an inner join without having to repeat the user.user_id?
I was thinking something like:
SELECT * FROM users left join users AS u_2 on u_2.user_id = u.user_id
*my user table has an id, username, and password
You can do something like this:
SELECT u.user_id, u.username, u.password
FROM users AS u
JOIN users AS u_2 ON u.user_id = u_2.user_id

New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva brings together two of his favorite thriller-suspense writers and combines them into a brilliant mystery involving a search for a kidnapped son and the man who ultimately gets there first – CIA agent Pete Marshall, and a U.S. Marshal named Ted Brautigan.
When the nation’s intelligence service is notified that its CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, is going to be host to a group of foreign leaders, the FBI and the Marshals are called in to protect the U.S. Marshal charged with security at the site, Ted Brautigan. Though the Marshals aren’t certain that the operation is legitimate, they know that someone wants them to stay away.
Ted soon discovers that he may be the target of the blackmailer himself and that his own family is caught in the crossfire. To stop the kidnapper, he’ll have to rely on the skills he learned as a firearms instructor on the streets of Chicago – and the extraordinary ability he has to read people.
As Ted’s old mentor Jay Bernstein helps him unravel the plot, Ted finds himself in a deadly game with the local police, the FBI, and the Russians, all vying for his body and soul.
With his trademark storytelling, Silva delivers one of the most memorable thrillers ever written.Q:
