Dreams to be
Completely free
With no worries

Find myself here
Surge past nose
Fear disappearing
Sound drones “ohm”

Mesmerizing floating foam
Sinking feelings drift alone
Who am I? What do I know?
Two eyes stay open minding flow

While blood of course
And thought rebirth
Connecting life in joy and hurt
Opens heart to love and surf
River rushes over earth

Care for a Reading?

In image processing, computer graphics, and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminances between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods.

Photoshop Tips, Tricks, & Fixes

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on April 2, 2010 by dustus

I know some of you are looking for a great Photoshop resource, so here you go! Photoshop Tips, Tricks, & Fixes offers a perfect alternative to spending lots of money on a book that will present much of the same info.

This comprehensive instructional magazine covers basics from explaining the many photo imaging tools to providing tips on color matching and reading histograms. Additional lessons address the following topics: masking, adjustment layering, photomerging, filters, lightening effects.

For the Photoshop hobbyist, …Tips, Tricks, and Fixes shows, in simple steps, how to rescue badly scanned and old photos by using a combination of tools and filters. On a personal note, I used this magazine as a quick reference guide a few times this week.

*It explains the concept of layering very well, and offers a disc full of free video tutorials. (I bought this at Barnes and Noble).
