The **Creative Cloud** (originally called Photoshop.com) is a subscription-based service that includes applications for desktop and mobile devices, design templates and stock images, and upgrades to earlier versions of Photoshop. It makes uploading, downloading, and editing of graphics and photos much easier. Creative Cloud members also have access to online tools for editing e-mail and creating spreadsheets. The following sections explain the major steps in making a photo more or less what you want it to be.
You can take a photo with an inexpensive digital camera or the built-in camera on a phone or tablet, or upload one from a memory card or USB thumb drive. Or, you can use a web service such as Flickr or Google to upload images. Image-editing software can be used to touch up the picture that was taken or to replace a picture with a different one or create a new picture entirely.
The first thing you’ll notice when using Photoshop Elements is that it takes slightly longer to complete tasks. It’s not that its performance is slower, but that you get used to it and have to think about what you want to do, how you want to perform the task, and how you want to achieve the output you’re looking for.
In this post, we’ll be looking at how you can use the basic Photoshop Elements tools to create some graphics, stickers, web pages, memes, and more.

To get started, we’re going to edit the image below:
1. Open an image in Photoshop Elements
Open any.jpeg,.png,.jpg, or.tif image in Photoshop Elements.
You can import JPEG, PNG, or TIFF files, but.pngs and.jpgs are recommended.
If you’re not sure what format to use to open an image, go to the File menu and select Choose Type. You’ll see a small icon of the file type appear above the image. Then, you can choose whether to open it in Photoshop Elements or an external application.
Here, we’ll use a.jpeg file.
2. Resize the image
To resize the image, go to Image > Image Size. You’ll see the original image and the three resizing options (Original, Small, and Large):
You can also use the control keys to resize the image.
You can resize the image to different resolutions, like 2048×2048. You can also resize it to a different aspect ratio, like 16:9.
Press Control + I to invert the image. Then, you can use the two handles to drag the bounding box around the image. You can use this to make the image exactly how you want it.
If you don’t want to use the resize handles to make the image fit the bounding box (4:3), you can also use the Resample tool. Go to Image > Resample. You’ll see the four options available.
The following image shows the different options and features that are available with the Resample tool.
If you hover over the different menu items, you
for sustainable agriculture, and, therefore, would be willing to support a research programme for the improvement of sustainable agriculture. The absence of relevant research and development activities in the United Kingdom under this theme makes the United Kingdom a missed opportunity in the area of sustainable agriculture.
*Proposals for the themes of Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) and LCA in the context of climate change, to cover the whole of the food supply chain, are being supported by the UK Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC)*.
*Theme 2: The importance of transparent and traceable methods*
There is a concerted effort to include ‘good laboratory practice’ (GLP) in research supported under the UK NC3Rs programme. The regulatory framework in the United Kingdom requires independent research sponsors to adhere to GLP for funded research. Only if the research is proposed to be published, the research data must be made accessible in a timely manner. The time taken for this process is on the increase. However, the current system of GLP requires that the sponsor also analyses the protocol, so in their responsibility to society the sponsor should be willing to take on the added responsibility to analyse the protocol in order to provide an indication of the validity and usefulness of the research.
The regulator in the United Kingdom is the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The role of the NIHR is to ‘promote and develop the health and care of patients through the implementation and strategic oversight of research’. Part of the role of NIHR is to ensure that the effectiveness and efficiency of services delivered are improved. The specific mandate for the NIHR is: ‘…to support high quality research which improves the efficiency of health and care delivery by producing the highest quality evidence based on the best available techniques’.
The NIHR also directly funds research on many topics and has an advanced research programme. There is considerable scope for funding within the NIHR research portfolio that is relevant to the theme of ‘the importance of transparent and traceable methods in research’. Some of the topics being examined are:
▪The level of animal suffering during research
▪Ethics of genetic modification
▪The potential of nanotechnology to improve health
▪The ability of GPs to undertake research
▪The development of electronic patient records
▪The benefits of gaming to enhance learning
Localization of antigenic determinants of the lstA (streptomycin L-phosphotransferase) antigen in different antibodies and mutants.
The lstA gene, the structural gene of streptomycin L-phosphotransferase, encodes an antigen of about 1,000 amino acids. The major antigenic determinant of this protein has been localized to about the amino-terminal 100 amino acids of the protein. The antigenic properties of antibodies against an amino-terminal fragment of streptomycin L-phosphotransferase were determined. Antibodies against five immunogens were tested for their ability to inhibit binding of various sera to intact lstA protein. Two of the antibodies inhibited the binding of their antigens to a lstA-antibody in a lstA+ strain. The other three did not, thus illustrating the antigenic heterogeneity of the five antigens. In order to localize the antigenic determinants, four substitution mutants of the lstA gene, three with single-amino-acid changes and one with a larger deletion, were constructed in lstA+ Escherichia coli. Three of the substitution mutants, which have a single amino acid substitution in the amino-terminal 100 residues, lost the antigenicity. The fourth, with a deletion of 15 amino acids at the amino terminus, retained the antigenic property.Saposin A
Saposin A, also known as CD36, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SAPO gene.
The protein encoded by this gene is a major activator of plasminogen. This activator plays an essential role in the maintenance and stability of extracellular matrix. The encoded protein may be involved in neurite outgrowth, cell adhesion, and neurite fasciculation.
Saposin A is a cysteine protease of the cathepsin L family. It is synthesized as a preproprotein and is proteolytically cleaved into two subunits: an amino terminal prodomain and a carboxy terminal catalytic domain.
In normal individuals, the amount of active protein is less than 0.5% of the total protein. The crystal structure of saposin A is known for two different forms of the protein:
