Adobe Photoshop is a powerful photo editing program, but it can also be very confusing. Like any big tech company, it has more than one program. However, it does offer a single interface to access all of your file types, complete with a little learning curve.
You can get Adobe Photoshop for free on the Google Play Store.

How to use Photoshop for editing your photos
Adobe Photoshop’s user interface is not as complicated as it once was, and it is definitely easier to navigate and understand. The majority of the tasks you perform will most likely be done using the following features, found under the image toolbox on the bottom of the screen.
On the left side of the screen, you’ll notice the file you are editing. It can be the photo you just shot or some image you have imported from a memory card. To access it, simply select File, Image, and Open. Or, you can also drag it in from your file manager.
Within that same side panel, you’ll see the tools available to edit it. You can adjust its brightness, colors and contrast. If you’re working with RAW files, you can also adjust its exposure.
The main tools in Photoshop are highlighted in the image below.
Brightness/Contrast. You can use the slider on the top or bottom to adjust these settings.
Adjustment. This is used to adjust the midtones of an image.
Curves. This is used to adjust the brightness and contrast of an image. It’s used mainly to boost shadows or open up some dark areas.
Vibrance/Saturation. This is used to
State auditors have questioned the authority of the University of Nevada, Reno’s system of appointing upper-level administrators.
“We question if the appointee has the proper business qualifications for the position, and we question if there’s documentation of qualifications,” State Auditor John Chiang said during his yearly review of the university’s administration and financial practices. “Because the University of Nevada, Reno is a public institution and because its money comes from tuition and state general funds, the public expects that this university should be honest, efficient, and transparent in the ways it uses its resources and carries out its responsibilities.”
Reno, which has one of the largest state-supported university systems in the nation, must develop a comprehensive student-discipline accountability plan and outline its financial accounting procedures by Feb. 15.
A Reno Gazette-Journal investigation published in November revealed that Regent Clark Barenbaum, a principal investor in a company facing Federal Trade Commission charges of misleading consumers about investment returns, took steps in 2007 to make his company eligible to land a state board appointment for President Douglas Leavitt.
The appointee, Robert F. Cissna, later held a series of executive positions that earned him more than $120,000. Leavitt resigned this year.
“For the legislature to expect (Barenbaum) to make a good faith effort to identify a qualified candidate for a state board appointment is a stretch,” Chiang said at the time, adding that Barenbaum promised to be transparent about his company’s activities.
“To have a regent gain favor with the president of the university and use this kind of power to influence other board members for personal gain can’t be tolerated,” Chiang said last month.
Barenbaum has contended that he did not use political influence to gain influence on the board.
In a written statement on Monday, he said: “I have provided information on this matter to the Department of Finance, the State Auditor and the Attorney General. I’ve cooperated with the state to clear up any misperceptions, and I respect the office of the Attorney General. I remain confident that the legislature and the university will be satisfied that my actions were in good faith and within the law.”
Numerous laws address potential conflicts of interest involving board members, and Chiang said he wants the regents to make sure they have made certain that any appointees comply.
“We have to make sure that those (board members) are doing
All Souls’ Day is one of the most important (and most commercial) dates in the Catholic calendar and this year the whole system is going to be chaotic.
The Post reports that we’ve got ten million more Catholics thanks to the influx of Hispanics in the last 15 years, but there are only 900 priests to deal with them.
And that’s the problem. There are a lot of Catholics, but not enough priests to do the job.
Have a look at this bit of context:
In 1,000 U.S. parishes, there are 1,000 parishes, but some parishes only have one priest. Other parishes are decimated by the vicissitudes of secular and scientific medicine, but they are never downsized. The capacity is there for growth, but only through the steady recruitment of priests.
What’s even more interesting is that the reason these parishes are stuck with one priest is because many believe that having a number of priests is a bad idea.
In a 2011 survey of more than 200 Catholic bishops’ conferences worldwide, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops reported that at least 20 percent of them had an “inability to support a larger number of priests.”
The USCCB says it has identified a need for 100,000 new priests in the US, but the number seems just out of reach. We will be lucky to make the 100,000 mark this year.
That doesn’t seem to matter to many of the bishops: they’re willing to wait as long as necessary for the supply of priests to catch up with the demand.
In Canada, the first wave of immigration from the Middle East and Asia in the last ten years, is about to hit full head. The Anglicans are struggling under the weight of their new priests, but the Catholics seem to be in even better shape.
If we aren’t careful we’ll end up with two sets of priests who work in the same parish. The Italians go home at 4pm, the Indians go home at 6pm and the Spanish priests will be there every night until 5am. This is a recipe for failure.
The problem gets even more evident in developing nations. There are just too many Catholics who were converted to Catholicism in the last century. There simply aren’t enough priests to do the job.
