Type **www.google.com** into your browser’s address bar and hit Return. This time, you see the Go Images Search homepage (see Figure 8-2).
**Figure 8-2:** Google Go Images features a search box and an image preview area.
This handy page displays images from various sources, including photography, fashion, art, and more. You can use the arrow keys or the scroll bar to move to different categories. Click on the Search box and type in the search term, and Google displays a list of search results. Figure 8-2 shows a sample result from the Google Go Images Search, which is available here: . Scroll through the displayed images to find the one that most appeals to you.
When you find an image that you like, double-click the image (as you would any other file) to open it in Photoshop. Be careful — double-clicking opens Photoshop and then takes you to the image as you would when viewing a photo.
You can open Photoshop directly from Go Images Search if you like. Just click the Photoshop icon at the top of the page and follow the prompts to open your version of Photoshop. If you prefer to use your own software, you can use the Internet as a connection for Photoshop.
If you’re new to Photoshop or beginning to experiment with the program, you may be interested in an online store, known as PhotoPaint, that offers a wide variety of training videos and help for learning how to use Photoshop’s various functions. Visit PhotoPaint’s web page at `
You can also use Google Desktop, which provides a feature-rich, searchable interface for the files on your computer, including those in the Creative Cloud (more on that in a moment).
To use Google Desktop, simply type **Desktop** in the Google Search window and click the Connect option, as shown in Figure 8-3. You can then browse through your files from Google’s web site in the Creative Cloud. You can also use Google Desktop to create and edit your own images or to simply access your own files via a web browser.

Google also provides a method for accessing and downloading various file types from its web site. This feature works if you
Adobe Photoshop is an advanced computer image editing software, originally released by Adobe Systems Inc. in 1990. It is built on a custom-developed, object-oriented programming system (OpenGL), and is one of the first popular applications to use the OpenGL graphics platform for 2D and 3D graphics.
Adobe Photoshop is used in many areas of the creative industries including news and advertising agencies, market research, architectural photography, and scientific imaging.
While Adobe Photoshop Pro is the largest version of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements has gained a large following because it has gained popularity due to a lower price and smaller file size.
History of Photoshop
In late 1980s, Macromedia, who was one of the leading Mac software developers, realised the demand for 3D graphics applications and released their own application named Director to address it. This app could be used to create 3D effects easily in the Apple Macintosh. It was named after the director of a Douglas Fairbanks film. This app soon became popular with users, though the company soon realised the difficulty in developing a 3D graphics program, which kept them away from 3D development in early 1990.
The demand for 3D applications grew quickly in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Users usually used Apple’s 3D graphics application Apple Graphics – Image Converter to convert their 2D images into 3D shapes. Macromedia then released another 3D graphics application named Macromedia Flash Player to make Flash games and animations in 1992.
In June 1990, Jeff Harris, who was the Director of the Macromedia Flash Player, handed it to Wayne Rosato, a former Apple employee working as a Flash player developer, to further modify the Macromedia Flash Player to add 3D graphics functionality. This app was named Macromedia Flash 8, and it was renamed Adobe Flash 8 when the company was bought by Adobe Systems in 1997. In the same year, Adobe Systems released a 2D graphics app named Photoshop. It was initially used as a photo editor, but soon became a popular 3D graphics app. Photoshop could animate 3D objects, scale, rotate and cut out the selected area from 2D images. It could also directly export 3D objects from Macromedia Flash 8 to Photoshop, allowing them to be changed in Photoshop without the need for any other 3D graphics application.
In 1998, Adobe Systems released 3D image editing app Adobe Photoshop 3D Workshop to allow 3D image editing on Mac OS.
The product has an interface that places tools grouped around the canvas, which is approximately twice the size of a standard print. The interface is at the top with tools toward the bottom.
Photoshop’s Layers feature allows for changes to be made on more than one layer of the image at the same time. Although Layers are used to differentiate between different types of objects, this feature is more important in the understanding and use of them.
Photoshop is a user-friendly product, and features that are easy to use, but not easy to master can cause confusion. Here are the basic features of Photoshop:
The Layers: A blend of Illustrator and Photoshop, the Layers feature allows the stacking of layers to be changed at any point. This is very useful, especially when editing images with various types of layers (such as colors, shapes, and gradients). This feature is also used for other things such as path creation.
Photo Merge: This feature allows images to be added on top of each other. An example of this would be adding a black background to an image to provide a border, which can be edited afterwards.
Create a New Layer: This allows you to create a new layer that will be added to the image. This is very handy because, at times, you will need to add multiple layers.
Blend Modes: This feature allows you to colorize a layer by adjusting the mode. The three modes are RGB, HSB, and LAB.
Image Size: This feature allows you to change the size of the image. All of the canvas will be evenly divided by the given number of pixels.
File Size: This feature allows you to convert a jpg file to a series of vector files, or a series of bitmap files. It also allows you to modify the quality of the image.
Adjustment Layers: This is the term that refers to layers that can be edited. These include guides, masks, and curves, as well as the adjustment layers.
Lighting: This is a feature that allows you to give the image a certain light that will fill in all the areas of the canvas.
3D: 3D effects allow you to add depth to a scene. An example of this would be adding a shadow to an image, or giving it a reflection in water.
Image Capture: This feature enables you to capture an image for the current canvas size.
How to manually add an action to listbox.selecteditems in VB.NET?
So, in vb.net, I have a listbox.selecteditems in an updatepanel. Thats pretty much it. Now, if I click the listbox, when an item in the listbox is selected, it highlights the item, and the buttons “ok” and “cancel” below it. My question is this: is there a way to programmatically press the buttons to (for example) send an email in my form_Load event?
I have a button on my form for this, and I was able to move that into the listbox event on it’s own and it works fine. I was just wondering if I could do it programmatically and have it actually work, and not just draw the “cancel” button.
Figured it out. In the listbox event, it’s just a ListChanged event.
Me.ListBox.OnListChanged = New OnListChangedEventHandler(AddressOf SendingEmail)
Then just the normal submit button:
Private Sub SendEmail(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
SendEmail.Enabled = False
Label28.Text = “Successfully sent an email to ” & System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.HOST & ” port ” & System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.Port & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & “”
SendEmail.Enabled = True
