Adobe Photoshop CS5
Image Editor: Photoshop has a built-in image editor. It’s a layer-based program, allowing the addition of layers. You can resize, blur, color correct, and sharpen images. It also has numerous special effects, filters, and many other tools.
Application of Filters: There are several filter categories, including Artistic, Dry, Light & Shadow, Matte, Vivid, and Wet. These filters enhance images and change the way colors are perceived.
Image-Compositing Features: You can combine two or more images on a layer. You can also duplicate layers and merge them on the same layer.
Mask Modes: You can adjust the masks, selecting the type of mask, how the mask works, how to move the mask, and how to create masks.
Multiple Selection Tools: You can select an object by holding down the Shift key and clicking on the object’s edges. Photoshop offers other tools to select objects such as X-marks and magic wand.
New Texture Mapping and Improved Layer Masks: Adobe Photoshop CS5 offers improved image-compositing features and new texture-mapping options for layer masks.
Photoshop Can Save Files to the Web: You can easily save your work to a web server in the background, making it easy to share with others.
Raster Graphics: Raster graphics are the type of images that you find on a scanner or the Web. Raster graphics offer a basic way to add text and shapes to an image.
Text & Type: Photoshop CS5 has a built-in typeface library. It can even give fonts a new look, such as bold or italic.
Wizards: You can use Photoshop’s predefined images, such as the 20 Foundational Elements, or you can use your own.

This guide explains the tools and features of Adobe Photoshop Elements that are used by photographers to edit images, create new high-quality images, and craft memes.
What is Photoshop Elements?
Adobe Photoshop Elements is an alternative to Photoshop. It is a graphics editor for photographers, image editors and hobbyists.
It contains most of the features of the professional version but with fewer features and a simpler user interface.
How to Use Photoshop Elements
Here is a quick guide on how to use Photoshop Elements for photo editing.
This is the editing view in Photoshop Elements.
You’ll access all of the editing features in this view.
Selecting an image
Select the images by holding down Shift and clicking the images. To select multiple images at once, hold down the Control key while clicking the images.
How to Edit an Image in Photoshop Elements
It’s similar to Photoshop
The basic editing features in Photoshop Elements have the same features as in Photoshop. For example, you can change the brightness, contrast, white balance, shadows, black and white, and hue.
In Photoshop Elements, click the eyedropper button and choose an area of the image. Then click the eyedropper icon to fill the chosen area with the color.
Another option to apply a color is to create a new layer and select the color from the menu. In the image below, the colors in the canister and on the ground were created using a new layer and the eyedropper.
With the new layer, the canister and the ground became blue and green, respectively.
How to Retouch an Image in Photoshop Elements
You can add highlights to the image to increase the contrast.
You can also add a highlight to the shadows to remove the gray areas.
You can combine highlights and shadows to create a contrast.
A softlight also creates contrast and allows you to add light to a dark area.
For this example, the eyes were modified to create more contrast.
How to Sharpen the Image
The best way to sharpen an image is to add a blurred image on top of the original image.
Combine the two images and press Ctrl+E to blend the two images.
Use the Sharpen filter to sharpen the image.

Factory Collapses, 7,000 Migrants Abandon
Seven people were confirmed dead, and more than 7,000 others were evacuated from the collapsed factory in China, after a small quake on Monday.

BEIJING – Seven people were confirmed dead and more than 7,000 others were evacuated from the collapsed factory in China after a small earthquake on Monday.
The quake measuring 3.6 magnitude hit at 12:58 am Beijing time and shook the downtown area. The government of Yunnan province in Southwest China was conducting a full probe of the disaster.
“Seven people died, including two from a female factory worker’s family,” said Chen Kun, a local government official. One man died of a heart attack, he said.
Many residents were sleeping in their homes when the quake struck, and ran out in the streets to see what was happening.
“I just ran out the door to see what was going on,” said a local woman surnamed Zhou. “There were a lot of people running everywhere. It was a scary moment for me.”
The government is also scrambling to find migrant workers who had gone home for the night, among them a 14-year-old migrant girl. She was found dead in her village with her neck severed from her body, according to a local official.
A male migrant worker surnamed Liu had his leg amputated at a hospital in Handan after he was injured when the roof collapsed. But relatives in the countryside had not heard from him since the accident, and were worried he was buried in the rubble.
“We are not sure whether he is dead or not,” Liu’s mother, who was at the hospital for his treatment, told a local newspaper. “We had no hope of getting any relief from the government. We have no way to make a living.”
Hundreds of migrant workers died in China last year when an explosion rocked a factory that was constructed on top of another factory that had been found to be unsafe, according to local officials.
In an incident that would become a symbol of China’s abysmal worker conditions, a group of workers had taken refuge in the factory the night before the collapse.
They didn’t know the building was unsafe.
“They had gone into the bathroom
Hypoxia-induced changes in the expression of a panel of four hypoxia-regulated genes: HIF-1alpha, VEGF, VEGF receptor and platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor.
Tissue hypoxia is a signal involved in a variety of physiologic processes, including angiogenesis and erythropoiesis. A class of proteins encoded by hypoxia-inducible genes was identified after the discovery that the transcription factor Hypoxia-Inducible Factor (HIF) is activated by the hypoxia-dependent degradation of its inhibitor, the von Hippel-Lindau protein. This class of genes encode for such proteins as Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), an important mediator of angiogenesis, Platelet-derived Endothelial Cell Growth Factor (PD-ECGF), a cytokine with angiogenic and mitogenic activities, and VEGF Receptor 2, a receptor for VEGF. Four HIF-1alpha-regulated genes (CA9, VEGF, VEGF receptor-2 and PD-ECGF) are induced by hypoxia and represent convenient biomarkers of the hypoxic microenvironment. In this work we analyzed the effects of different hypoxia exposure times on the expression of these four genes. Two cell lines were used: hepatocarcinoma cells (Hep G2), which express VEGF and PD-ECGF, and endothelial cells (HUVEC), which do not. We show that the expression of all the genes is enhanced by hypoxia in both cell lines. This hypoxia-dependent response is first detected at 6 hours of hypoxia, and is more evident at 72 hours. This is the first study to show that PD-ECGF and VEGF receptor-2 are induced by hypoxia. These results provide a deeper insight into the response of an important family of genes to hypoxia.I had to laugh at the headline of this article “The Holy Grail Of Apple’s Watch”. Despite all the criticism, I still think Apple’s Watch is going to be the next large success for Apple. Look at Android Wear (by Google) sales and Apple is already way ahead of them, sales are doubling every two quarters. In the last quarter, Apple’s Watch sales were 70 million with 5 million units being sold on the first day.
The Apple Watch is revolutionary because it has all
