It is common for inexperienced users to use the Pencil Tool to change the color of a layer. This approach works, but be careful as you work with layers in Photoshop because you will tend to start accidentally erasing pieces of the background with the pencil tool.
It is helpful to visualize your canvas as having layers that are one above the other, each separated by a single color background. The foreground color will be on the top layer and you need to go up one layer to view the color of the layer below it.
## Improving the Tone
Now that you have a simple background and text layer on the canvas, we will move on to enhance the image’s tone with a
Elements doesn’t support all of Photoshop’s functions, and few of its features are equivalent to the full-featured version of Photoshop. It is also not available as a standalone application, instead being a free add-on for Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
Most of the functions in Elements are accessed by holding down the right mouse button, and double-clicking on an area of the image. They include: actions (batch actions), adjustment tools and filters, noise reduction, the liquify tools, layers, a selection tool, a red-eye tool and a paintbrush tool.
The circular loading bar in the top left-hand corner (and on the main window title bar) indicates that the program is running in the background.
There is no undo button in Elements, however. You can use the Step Back command to undo an operation, and the Undo command in the history.
Elements does not have a trackpad. But it does have a touch screen, which can be used to access actions and edit images.
You can save images in formats such as JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, PSD and PDF. However, if you attempt to save an image in a format that you do not have installed, Elements will instead save the image with the default save format.
Many elements of the interface, including the floating panels, menus and zoom controls, are configured via the Preferences dialog.
How to edit photos in Elements
A number of graphics editing tools are located in the tools palette at the bottom of the program. Most of the tools are used to edit images and adjust their colours.
Tools for basic image editing
The Adjustments panel contains nine basic tools for image editing. You can use the panel to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, and colour balance in an image.
Adjustments – brightness
Brightness is a simple slider that can be used to adjust the overall brightness of the image.
The adjuster bar appears and disappears as you drag the slider.
Note: The brightness adjuster may not work in every version of Elements, depending on which of the various Elements versions are installed on your computer.
Adjustments – contrast
Contrast is a slider that adjusts the contrast of the image. The box on the right shows the minimum and maximum values for the contrast slider.
Here are sample contrast settings for five different levels. As the contrast increases,
Fraserburgh is a town on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth in the North East of Scotland. It was incorporated as a burgh in the 12th century when a Dominican friary was established on the site and it’s charter was confirmed in 1309 by Edward I. During the 17th and 18th centuries trade flourished due to the demand for corn in the rearing of the Atlantic breeding stock of geese.
The town was granted its first charter by Charles I in 1631 and trade flourished until the early 19th century. By the mid 19th century only four traders remained when the North British Railway was opened through the area. The railway and competition from cheaper Scottish long sea shipping routes from Leith saw the decline of the local economy.
Fraserburgh railway station, also called “Fraserburgh West”, was in the centre of the town, but the station closed in 1956.
Fraserburgh regained its charter in 1877 and regained its burgh status in 1974.
Other places to visit
Standing Stones – a set of stone circles, one is in the North-East corner of the town. It is thought to be the oldest standing stones in the world.
The Museum – a local museum, and also a tourist information centre.
Torr Brae – a glen in the town.
When to go
May to September – Good summer weather and many sailing trips.
October – Festivals including the 4th of July, art show, bonfire and firework display on 9th July.
September – Francis Swanton Morris Festival – Francis Swanton Morris, a writer and artist, was born in the town in 1815, although the exact location of his birthplace is not certain. There is a public house in town named after him.
Why go to Fraserburgh?
Consider Fraserburgh for your next adventure on sea or on land. The town has a lively town centre and some excellent coastal walks. There are long sandy beaches to the north and south. Situated on the Forth Line Railway between Edinburgh and Glasgow, Fraserburgh is only 60 minutes from both these cities.
The town’s Tudor buildings still stand and many old buildings can still be seen, some of which are well-preserved examples of Georgian architecture.George Silveira

You do realize that this is written by the CEO of Parity?
The way he writes in the post, he sounds like he is trying to be impartial.
The implication was the author (and not you) is the CEO of the company.
True. I thought that he was trying to be honest and sharing his own
experience. I also can’t speak to his honesty or to the nature of the
organization he was working at.

It’s a case that has now been pending since last year and the outcome is by no means a foregone conclusion, but with a little help from the Supreme Court, the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Justice (DOJ) may have the upper hand.
In an email exchange with Mother Jones, former IRS official Anthony Ghisolino explained that the threat of a “bombshell” document in the form of a 55-page “thesaurus” listing “classifications, sub-classifications, and lower-level code titles by all names under which parties are classified in the Tax Code” was supposed to be the nail in the coffin of the Tea Party challenge.
“First we thought it would end up in a bin,” Ghisolino said. “Then came court decisions against us. Ultimately, it all came down to the ‘IRS Manual’ (Section 2402.8, page 88). If the s[u]ppreme court held that the manual was ‘irrelevant’ or ‘inconsequential’ then we’d be in a real pickle.”
The IRS had claimed that a document listing every name under which organizations were classified would be too voluminous to distribute, and that the information should therefore only be made available to a court if it was deemed relevant. The DOJ argued that the IRS had not only failed to make available a
