Allows images to be separated into individual groups and connected using layer spacing and linking.
Filters, styles, and selections
To be more specific, it is a reduced version of the professional version of Photoshop, with some features removed, some features simplified and a more limited palette of features added.
Seekers of the simpler life will like Photoshop Elements for the same reasons they like Windows. It is simple, easy to use and works really well.
Seekers of the professional life will like Photoshop Elements for the same reasons they like Ubuntu. It is powerful, flexible and comes with all the features they need.
This tutorial is for the sake of those seeking the simpler life. It explains how to use Photoshop Elements for removing unwanted items and unwanted people from photos, and edits (or sometimes just adjusts the colour of) any of the pixels in your image.
We will start by removing faces from photos (or anywhere that you don’t want to be included in your photos).
Overcoming the facial recognition software in video games
Let us start by taking a step back from this tutorial and looking at the challenges faced by developers who want to design games.
There are two elements that a game designer must contend with:
– the game itself,
– the players.
When designing a game that is fun to play, you want your game to be engaging. You want to keep the player (you) interested in the game. You want to keep them playing.
This is where the facial recognition software comes into play.
Facial recognition software is a concept whereby the software can tell if it is being run on a computer that has a face (and is likely the the player’s) or on a computer that doesn’t have a face. If it is being run on a computer that does not have a face, the software takes pictures of the user’s face (or at least the facial area around the eyes, nose and mouth) and compares them to stored faces.
However, what if it is not a normal face? What if it is not a face at all?
Let’s look at a few examples.
This is a picture of a girl on a machine. She is not actually looking at the camera. So the software fails to detect her.
This is an example of a slightly complicated or abstract face. The software fails to detect it.
This is an example of a girl on a cat. The software picks up the
Python: Import a module without changing sys.path
I have a fairly large Python package (3 or so modules) called foo_bar, and I want to ship it with a folder that is easy to find on a shared system. I would like to have an import that does something like:
Is there some way to do this in Python, or will I have to hardcode the path to foo_bar.syspath?
You can load the module based on its name.
>>> import sys
Remember that sys.path is updated on each import.
Documenting interactions between mechanical stimuli and material transients: a system to study muscle contraction.
A novel experimental system is described in which the contraction of single muscles in the lizard, Anolis carolinensis, can be faithfully recorded and controlled. Together, the extracellular and intracellular microelectrodes can provide information about the activity of the muscle fibres, the rate of tension development and relaxation, and the movement of the limb. In addition, extracellular electrodes can measure the forces in the joints that are transmitted to the muscle. The unique properties of this system provide a means to control the inputs and sensory conditions associated with muscle contraction and to control the relative positioning of the limb and muscle. The system allows changes in the external mechanical properties to be studied and applied to the contraction of skeletal muscle in a controlled way. Changes can also be examined in the movement of the limb and the muscle fibres that result. The effects of the manipulations, in terms of the forces and movements in the limb, can be recorded, measured, plotted and stored as a digital file. This system is thus an effective technique for documenting the molecular events that occur during the contraction of a single muscle.Sony and Mubi To Bring New Films to the Web
January 19, 2013
Sony and Mubi are combining forces to bring more world cinema to the web.
The companies have today announced a new partnership to bring limited edition theatrical films to the web. Beginning on March 1, Sony’s Mubi will offer digital-only screenings of recently released movies, including three films from famed French director Agnès Varda, as well as Cannes titles.
How to force SSL in Browser and Workstation
I am using Eclipse and Tomcat 7.0.2 and Java 1.6.0_20. I am using SSL for the ports 80 and 443 for my Java web server and for my Tomcat server. They both serve html.
However, the browser and the JVM do not.
I want to force SSL for the browser and for the JVM.
Is this possible?
Changing the security handler is the usual fix.
Changing the security handler is the usual fix. The -Djava.security.krb5.conf=/etc/krb5.conf (or whatever) switch might also work, or it might not, depending on your needs.
Introducing Norma Andrews
September 27, 2014
One of my goals this year is to catch up on reading the backlist of the publishers that have been mine and my husband’s, that we have loved and read time and time again but when we count them up we’ve read at least 24 of them. Since Richard caught up with it already and has read 100 books he has a head start on my goal. He is also a huge catalog-browsing enthusiast (a good thing) and goes to www.abebooks.com which is a great site that lists all the backlist of the publishers – it’s like a library catalog. He finds and buys the books that are new and a lot of the books that are coming out in paperback, and since I love reading the journals of the authors I wanted to join him in making one list of all the books we’d read that were published between the date that we married in 1997 and the time we became empty nesters in 2001.
I kept track of his success by checking my own bookshelf for any books that I’d read that were published since 1997. I am not doing this list as a link up, for all the links that I did my thank you list at the end of 2013, but because it’s a list of some of the author’s I’ve loved reading since we first started dating, and I’ve loved reading more in the last 12 years than I ever did before.
One of my favorite authors, Chris Baty is also not on this list because only the four or five books she’s written
