* _Photoshop Elements_ is a free image-editing program for Microsoft Windows, Macintosh, and mobile devices. It’s like a Photoshop Lite, but it lacks many of the features you use in Photoshop. However, it has a large collection of artistic effects and tools, as well as powerful batch-processing functions. (Check it out at www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-elements.)
* _GIMP_ (formerly known as the GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a fully featured open-source program that is similar to Photoshop and Elements. It’s free and supported by a large community of developers. Try it at www.gimp.org.
* _Adobe Photoshop Lightroom_ is a program that enables you to work with your images on your phone, tablet, or computer. It also enables you to manage images and transfer them to your camera in the field, either with an adapter or over your Wi-Fi network.
* _The GIMP 2.8_ is a free version of the Photoshop program. The GIMP differs from Photoshop in that it’s a standalone program that doesn’t require a Mac. (Try it at www.gimp.org.)
The purpose of this article is to help you find the best practices that you can use in Photoshop Elements to become a better digital photographer or graphic designer, and to speed up the processing time.
Normally, when we talk about Photoshop, we are talking about the full version of Photoshop. However, Photoshop Elements is only a subset of the regular Photoshop and it does not contain all of the features found in the full version.
In this post, we will cover all of the Photoshop features that you can use in Photoshop Elements, as well as some of the common practices that you can follow to get the most out of your images.
Don’t get discouraged if you find this article a bit complicated, or hard to understand right away. Just read it slowly, one section at a time, and do your best. Photoshop Elements can be complicated but there are methods you can use to get things done and become an amazing photographer, and graphic designer.
There is no shortcut in Photoshop Elements for getting things done. Just use your brain, practice patience, and remember that every photo can be a great photo if you learn how to make them great.
We will start with the most important section, which is the Raw section.
So what is Raw?
Raw files are unprocessed files that are not the same as the files that you can open right after taking a photo. They are digital photos with their sensor data intact.
Raw files are often considered to be the source of the best possible photos. The files are saved in the TIFF format, a file type that is used to store sensor data in a specific way.
When a photo is taken by a digital camera, it uses a type of sensor called a CCD. There are two parts to the CCD, the sensor, which records the light and colors, and the light meter, which measures the brightness of the light.
After the sensor registers and records all of the light information, it transfers all of this data to a computer. This data is the Raw file. Raw is an unprocessed file, so there is no image processing to get rid of the data that you don’t want.
Some CCDs (cameras) shoot at 14-bit. This means that the RAW file has 14 bits of color depth. To convert this data to 8-bit colors, the camera applies a process called demosaicing (in the software) or downsampling. This
Saving an image from Java to the desktop
The program I’m writing has the option to take a picture using an Android phone. Then through the phone’s messaging app, the program sends a picture to the user. I need to then find a way to save that picture to the users desktop. I know how to save to the SD card and if the file is in the sd card, the user can select it. But for the program to save it on the users desktop, I need the file to be saved directly to their desktop.
To get to the desktop, we have to go through a FileChooser. I’m not entirely sure how to use the FileChooser. Is there a way to save the file as a particular user with the FileChooser? I know this is a stupid question, but I’ve never worked on apps like this before.
Using a FileChooser and the user’s own file system is one of the basic procedures.
Facebook Graph API ”
When I try to access my own user account (using the graph api) I get the error:
(#200) The operation failed. This user does not exist on this server.
I have edited the endpoint for security purposes to the url below:
If I use the url in the graph explorer, it works fine.
But I can’t get it work. Any ideas?
I received the same error and it had to do with the /. See:
Meant I had a similar problem. I solved this by just accessing Graph Explorer with

PHP’s md5 signature php.ini
I want to know why md5 algorithm is enabled by default in php.ini file?
How can we disable it?
To disable it you need to set a directive to disallow md5 hashing like this
; Disable standard cryptographic functions. PHP will still offer an
; implementation of these functions through theapackage.xml and PHP API.
; Most of the cryptographic functions are turned on by default.
; If you want to disable some, you can specify which ones you don’t want
; to be enabled.
php_admin_value[openssl.enable_crypto] = 0
md5 is a default algorithm because it is secure. As long as you don’t have a reason to change it, you should leave it.
The first US strike on Syrian government forces has been requested by Turkey. For the first time, it’s possible to show what the Syrian government really looks like — we have taken a rare image from a government fighter jet that recently crashed.
The plane was destroyed while on a mission in Syria, and its tail section has been turned into a military museum at Ankara’s Tinca Air Base. The photo, taken by photographer Damian Kavanagh of Florida, shows the face of a Syrian military pilot, one of hundreds of Russian-made MiG-23s recently deployed to Syria.
“It’s beautiful,” Kavanagh told Business Insider about the MiG, calling it “a work of art.”

One of the first American strikes on Syrian government forces has taken place, according to multiple reports.
The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which first reported news of the attack, cited a defense official who said three US planes targeted a Syrian military base in Deir al-Zour Province in eastern Syria. According to the official, who asked not to be identified, US forces carried out the attack, the third of at least 10 US strikes on Syrian targets since May.
The attack appears to be the first US strike on Syrian government forces since a US-led coalition, which includes the US and its allies, began targeting ISIS last September.
