Apply a Vintage Effect to Several Images Using Actions

Have you ever wanted to apply the same effect to several images at once? This is an issue that most designers face at some point in their career. In some situations, you might be able to apply an effect individually one photo at a time. That takes time however, and if you have dozens or even hundreds of images to process, that is simply not possible. The solution is to create an action and apply it using a batch process. In today’s quick tip tutorial we will demonstrate how to create an action and apply it to several images using Photoshop’s batch process function.

Create “Get Digitised” – Photoshop CS tutorial

Seeing as I haven’t really had the chance to go anywhere of particular interest as of late I started to get stuck into some digital art again. It has been a while since I have done much due to my photography addiction. I almost forgot just how much I actually enjoy doing it, so I’m glad I did.
As I was browsing through some stock images I remembered an idea I wanted to create for a while now. I wanted to give the impression of someone being sucked into the digital world. How this could be done, I’m sure there are many ways, but my idea was to have someone being digitised into pixels (hence the title of the piece).
This tutorial will go through the steps I took to create the image.

The Microsoft .NET Framework 4 web installer package downloads and installs the .NET Framework components required to run on the target machine architecture and OS. An Internet connection is required during the installation. .NET Framework 4 is required to run and develop applications to target the .NET Framework 4.


Overview

The .NET Framework is Microsoft's comprehensive and consistent programming model for building applications that have visually stunning user experiences, seamless and secure communication, and the ability to model a range of business processes.

The .NET Framework 4 works side by side with older Framework versions. Applications that are based on earlier versions of the Framework will continue to run on the version targeted by default.

The Microsoft .NET Framework 4 provides the following new features and improvements:


  • Improvements in Common Language Runtime (CLR) and Base Class Library (BCL)
    • Performance improvement including better multicore support, background garbage collection, and profiler attach on server.
    • New memory mapped file and numeric types.
    • Easier debugging including dump debugging, Watson minidumps, mixed mode debugging for 64 bit and code contracts.
    • For a comprehensive list of enhancements to CLR and BCL go here.
  • Innovations in the Visual Basic and C# languages, for example statement lambdas, implicit line continuations, dynamic dispatch, and named/optional parameters.
  • Improvements in Data Access and Modeling
    • The Entity Framework enables developers to program against relational databases using .NET objects and Language Integrated Query (LINQ). It has many new features, including persistence ignorance and POCO support, foreign key associations, lazy loading, test-driven development support, functions in the model, and new LINQ operators. Additional features include better n-tier support with self-tracking entities, customizable code generation using T4 templates, model first development, an improved designer experience, better performance, and pluralization of entity sets. For more information go here.
    • WCF Data Services is a component of the .NET Framework that enables you to create REST-based services and applications that use the Open Data Protocol (OData) to expose and consume data over the Web. WCF Data Services has many new features, including enhanced BLOB support, data binding, row count, feed customization, projections, and request pipeline improvements. Built-in integration with Microsoft Office 2010 now makes it possible to expose Microsoft Office SharePoint Server data as an OData feed and access that data feed by using the WCF Data Services client library. For more information go here.
  • Enhancements to ASP.NET
    • More control over HTML, element IDs and custom CSS that make it much easier to create standards-compliant and SEO-friendly web forms.
    • New dynamic data features including new query filters, entity templates, richer support for Entity Framework 4, and validation and templating features that can be easily applied to existing web forms.
    • Web forms support for new AJAX library improvements including built-in support for content delivery networks (CDNs).
    • For a comprehensive list of enhancements to ASP.NET go here.
  • Improvements in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
    • Added support for Windows 7 multi-touch, ribbon controls, and taskbar extensibility features.
    • Added support for Surface 2.0 SDK.
    • New line-of-business controls including charting control, smart edit, data grid, and others that improve the experience for developers who build data centric applications.
    • Improvements in performance and scalability.
    • Visual improvements in text clarity, layout pixel snapping, localization, and interoperability.
    • For a comprehensive list of enhancements to WPF go here.
  • Improvements to Windows Workflow (WF) that enable developers to better host and interact with workflows. These include an improved activity programming model, an improved designer experience, a new flowchart modeling style, an expanded activity palette, workflow-rules integration, and new message correlation features. The .NET Framework 4 also offers significant performance gains for WF-based workflows. For a comprehensive list of enhancements to WF go here.
  • Improvements to Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) such as support for WCF Workflow Services enabling workflow programs with messaging activities, correlation support. Additionally, .NET Framework 4 provides new WCF features such as service discovery, routing service, REST support, diagnostics, and performance. For a comprehensive list of enhancements to WCF go here.
  • Innovative new parallel-programming features such as parallel loop support, Task Parallel Library (TPL), Parallel LINQ (PLINQ), and coordination data structures which let developers harness the power of multi-core processors.

     Calling a DLL from another C # C + +
    Problem:
    The C # to create DLL with a managed-coded: that is to say, it improves the dependability of a program (and to simplify the programmer's work) is a code that runs under the management of the CLR virtual machine, or another virtual machine. This term is used in contrast to unmanaged code (unmanaged code = native code), which is directly executed by the processor.
    By cons, C + + to create native code, it is composed of instructions directly recognized by a processor. The native code is linked to a particular family of processors sharing the same set of instructions.
    At this point, we can see that since native code, it will be difficult to called managed code unless creates an interface for communication between the two environments are calling this interface side C #, an object COM (Component Object Model).
    Component Object Model, also known as ActiveX is a software component (such as DLLs) created by Microsoft. It is used in programming to allow dialogue between programs.

    Download Free Golden Potoshop Crop Action



    Golden Crop script is an extension of the standard Crop Tool. It display fully resizable composition grid which you can rotate any degree you want. Golden Crop works in Photoshop CS2, CS3 and CS4 and is available in several language versions (more to come!). ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ *Features*: ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Displays composition lines for the following methods: Rule of Thirds, Golden Rule, Golden Triangle, Golden Spiral, Diagonal Method. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Uses non-destructive methods (not counting rotation of a non right angle) and Adjustments Layers with Vector Masks and layer FX – no actual pixel is added to the file at all! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Custom line thickness. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- The image could be in any proportion – 3:4, 2:4, 16:9, 314:271, ... it doesn’t matter! Composition lines are always drawn correctly! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- You can keep the aspect ratio of the frame by holding [Shift], or [Alt]+[Shift] keys. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Displays semi-transparent crop shield, just as regular Crop Tool does. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- You are able to fully rotate and resize cropping frame. Composition lines updates in real time. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Fully customizable – You can choose which composition lines the script should display. You can also choose reveal and crop method. The composition lines choice is remembered. You can even record it in an action! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Two crop modes: ‘crop mask’ and ‘simple crop’. The latter just crops the image in a similar way to the Image>Crop command. The ‘crop mask’ mode creates non-transparent mask (Solid Color layer with vector mask) that hides pixels outside crop frame. Using this mode You can continue cropping even after the script finishes – just run it again! Hint: if you do not like to continue cropping, but add another frame, select bottom-most layer (probably Background) and run the script. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Reveal background with confirmation helps to avoid frustrating 1px borders mistakenly added during crop process. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- When it comes to rotation or canvas extension, the background layer is always converted to normal layer and Solid Color layer with Foreground Color fill is added below it. Original pixel would not merge with new canvas anymore! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- This is also one of the possible ways to create simple frames with customizable color (Solid Color layer, remember?) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Line thickness and preferred composition method could be recorded as an action step. The composition process is still interactive though. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- It’s free as in beer and free as in speech :) This software uses GNU General Public License. But if you run a business or just like the script consider making a donation. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ *Languag versions*: ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- English ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Polish (Polski) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- German (Deutsch) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Spanish (Español) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Russian (Русский) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Italian (Italiano) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ *Supported versions*: ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Photoshop CS2 (Windows and Mac version) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Photoshop CS3 (Windows and Mac version) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ____- Photoshop CS4 (Windows and Mac version) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Note: Photoshop Elements won’t be supported ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ *Installation* ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Go to the FAQ page (http://goldencrop.sourceforge.net/faq.html#install) to read the installation tutorial and watch screencasts.

    SEO Help



    Search Engine Optimization

    Welcome to the Search Engine Optimization Bible. Search engine optimization has come
    to mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. In the strictest sense, SEO is about
    the on-page and off-page design strategies you can use to improve your search engine
    ranking. This usually means tweaking your web site, using design elements and content. And in most cases, it also means spending no money at all. SEM, or Search Engine Marketing, is not just SEO. More accurately, SEM includes PPC or pay-perclick advertising. Search engine marketing is about doing whatever you need to do to ensure that your web site ranks as high as possible in search engine results. This means not only that you make the needed changes to your web-site design, but that you also employ other tactics, like using a paid advertising program or investing in content strategies. [center][/center]I lump them all into one category. The ultimate goal of SEM is to bring more people to your web site. And you can do that by improving your search engines results. You can also do that by taking advantage of a growing phenomenon on the Web, social media. Social media is a viral form of sharing information on the Web. You might think of it as a more sophisticated method of sharing your favorites or information that you think will interest other people. And using social media to improve the traffic to your web site is called Social Media Marketing, or SMM. I vote we do away with the alphabet soup completely. All these marketing efforts have one thing in common: reaching your target audience. And today anyone who is not an SEO purist places all these marketing methods under the SEM umbrella. All of them are methods for optimizing your web site for the audience that you’re trying to reach. And as social media grow in popularity, they’re going to be affected by and included in search engine results as well. Every now and then, you need to step away from the crowd and stop doing what everyone else is doing. In SEO, stepping out alone is usually rewarded with better traffic results. Everyone is doing the same thing. And that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t. What it means is that you should do the same thing in a different way. And that’s where the Search Engine Optimization Bible comes in. Throughout the pages that follow, I’ll show you the best practices for search engine optimization and rovide insight into the theory behind the strategies that you’ll learn. These strategies are tested. They work. For thousands of web sites. Use them to build on. Follow the best practices of search engine optimization but do it creatively. Try something different. That’s how blogs became such a huge phenomenon. It’s how social bookmarking and social communities caught on. Someone looked at marketing in a different way and came up with a new angle.
