Your illustration should look similar to Figure 7-1, but the colors will be more vibrant and intense. You may need to play with the opacity and blending modes to get the colors to look the way you want. It’s easier to make adjustments if you start with a good-quality background image, so try to create your own.
FIGURE 7-1: A sunset with multiple sun overlays added.
Figure 7-1 shows four sun overlays placed on top of a photograph of a garden. The sun overlays, represented by blue-tinted circles, were created by the Curves tool, which I explain in Chapter 6.
Photoshop Elements comes with a number of tools for creating sun flares. You can use the Starburst tool to make sun flares; you can even draw sun flares with an Inkwell tool.
I describe both tools in Chapter 6.
# ADJUSTING LIGHT WITH THE SUN HARMONICS FADING PROJECTION TECHNIQUE
Another way to manipulate light in an image is with the Harmonic Fading Projection technique. This technique, found in Photoshop Elements 3.0 (and earlier) and Photoshop CS6, is also in Adobe Photoshop CS6 Ultimate Collection; see the “Checking out the latest in photoshop” section, earlier in this chapter, for more information. Although the projected sun is small and dimmer than a Photoshop sun flare, it’s easier to control.
To try out the technique, you first create a small sun flare in a separate image. Using the image of the sun flare as a guide, you match the intensity of the sun flare with the brightness of the new sun to be projected. The next step is adjusting the background layer to match the intensity of the new sun as well. When adjusting the brightness, make changes in the Amount and Opacity sliders for both the sun flare and the
In this article, we will walk you through all the basic tasks that you can do in Photoshop Elements.
Note: Your Photoshop Elements will be updated when you update your operating system. However, if you need a more current version, check the Adobe website.
1. Create a new document and open a JPEG image
Click the File menu, choose New, and select JPEG from the Size tab. You can also browse for an image on your computer by using the Open dialog window.
The opened JPEG image is displayed in the new document.
2. Resize an image
Click the Image menu on the menu bar, and choose Canvas Size from the Resize menu.
The Canvas Size dialog box appears. Choose the Size tab, enter values in the Width and Height fields, and click OK. The image resizes, and its size is shown in the Canvas Size dialog box. The dialog box disappears, and the newly resized image is displayed in the Canvas window.
Change the values in the Width and Height fields to resize the image.
3. Rotate and flip an image
Click the Image menu, and choose Flip Horizontal from the Rotate menu. The image flips horizontally, and the menu closes.
The menu is closed.
Click the Image menu, and choose Rotate or Crop from the Rotate menu. The image is rotated clockwise or counterclockwise around its center, depending on which menu item is selected.
In the dialog box that appears, click the Rotate arrows to rotate the image. Enter the number of degrees, and click OK. The rotation is applied. To close the dialog box, click anywhere outside it, or press Esc.
Click the Rotate arrows to set the rotation angle.
4. Zoom in and out an image
Click the Image menu and choose Zoom from the Zoom menu. The Zoom dialog box appears. Choose Fit from the Fit tab.
In the dialog box that appears, enter the zoom percentage on the X and Y fields, and click OK. The image is enlarged or reduced.
A single-finger drag is used to zoom in and out. If you zoom too far or too quickly, the image becomes too small to view.
Zoom the image as much as you want.
5. Edit an image’s brightness and contrast
Bilal Abdul-Jabbar talks Sixers, his next project
After spending five seasons as the first on-court general manager, David Kay was surprised to find himself a few months into his new role with an opportunity to work with some of the team’s brightest young talents.
It was after that first phone call from Sixers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo, calling to ask Kay to step down from his current position, that Kay’s former boss, former Bucks GM John Hammond, eventually called to join him.
“He always impressed me the most. I was just never sure I was going to leave Milwaukee and I’m glad I did,” said Hammond, who is now the executive vice president of basketball operations.
“I always thought that the best general managers are the hardest ones to find, and he was the best,” Kay said of Hammond, who served as Bucks GM from 2013 until Kay was hired in late 2013.
“He loved to play the game and was very analytical. With Giannis, Thon’s recent injuries, all of these injuries that happen, Giannis is one of those guys, an alpha dog in the pick and roll, that is very, very good. It’s the next step for him that as a GM, I would try to get him to understand. He takes more ownership of his role,” he said. “When Giannis went down, that’s something I said, ‘I’ll never play with him again, I’ll never play with another MVP. We’ll never win a championship with him. He’ll never even leave Milwaukee.’ He didn’t understand, and I can’t explain it, but when he goes through something like that, he can’t let that come between him and his team. He’ll never let that happen.”
Kay, who joined the Sixers as a scout before eventually serving as the first on-court general manager, had also clashed with Colangelo on a professional level. The two met after the 2008-09 season as NBA players.
“We were teammates and rivalries happen,” Hammond said. “We’re not close. He’s part of the family. He’s a good friend of mine and I think I’m part of the family
Bootstrap column width to be auto
I am making a project using Bootstrap and there is a row containing 2 columns.
On the left side I have a horizontal list. When clicking on an item of this list, the item should expand. In order to accomplish this, I am using the “collapse” directive.
Here is my code:
Some content here.
The problem is that the width of the second column is not correct. If you see the attached screenshot, you will see that the second column should go all the way to the left side and the width of the first column should be the remaining width.
How can I achieve this?
Thanks in advance!
