Imagine a component, Draw it with Illustrator, Save it to a Flash Drive, Cut it with a Laser Cutter, Assemble the component, Use it!

Posted on Nov 1, 2015 by Andy Marks Last Activity on Nov 1, 2015

I am a M.E.S.A. adviser in Utah's Granite School District: MESA stands for Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement. This year's project is a prosthetic hand with "integrated computer science elements". The hand is to be controlled with an Arduino. In the past, other MESA advisers and their students have struggled with the "carpentry" aspects of designing and building things. I thought this year's project would be no different as I played with designing and building a hand that could be computer controlled.  I modeled the hand after my own, limiting it to an index finger and opposing thumb. The first hand I made took hours to build from three 1/2" layers of plywood, hand machined to accept a small stepper motor and to have enough room for a 16T, 32P, 5mm bore pinion gear driving a "gear finger" drawn in InkScape. The finger looks like my index finger, but at its base, where a knuckle resides, is a 48T, 32P gear. My first "gear finger" was cut b... Read More

Graffiti Text That's Reusable

Posted on Oct 27, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Nov 12, 2015

This tutorial is an easy what to illustrate and design graffiti text that can be re-used.  This means you don't have to redesign the entire effect, just re-type the words.  Its a beginner project so experience isn't needed.  I have my students illustrate a graffiti design on a wall, street, building, train or rail cars etc.   Just an artistic fun concept that allows students creative freedom centered around a theme of music, art, sports, etc. You can determine the criteria needed and Photography teachers can give photo guidelines to incorporate standards for photos and illustration designs.  Skies the limit on this concept!

How To Use The New Dehaze Filter In Adobe Photoshop And Lightroom

Posted on Jul 3, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Aug 20, 2015

Being a regular visitor to China during my University Lecture tours and being an avid photographer, I have always been somewhat disappointed with many of the images due to the haze from the pollution in Northern China or the haze from the humidity in Southern China. The “fix” to remove the haze , at least to me, was a complex series of steps in Photoshop. As of the latest releases of Photoshop CC 2015 and Lightroom CC, that “fix” has been reduced to a click thanks to the introduction of the Dehaze filter in both applications. Before you get all excited, be aware this filter is only found in the Camera Raw area of Photoshop CC 2015 and Lightroom CC. If you have an older version of Photoshop or Lightroom you will need to upgrade.

How To Create HDR Images In Adobe Lightroom 6/CC

Posted on May 29, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on May 29, 2015

HDR – High Dynamic Range- as its name implies, is a method that aims to add more "dynamic range" to photographs, where dynamic range is the ratio of light to dark in a photograph. Instead of just taking one photo, you take three photos shot using different exposures. In simplistic terms you get the perfect exposure and then take one underexposed and one overexposed image. From there you use image editing software – in this case Lightroom CC-  to put those three images together and highlight the best parts of each photo.

How to Use The New Face Recognition In Adobe Lightroom CC

Posted on Apr 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Sep 22, 2015

Over the years I have travelled all over the world and taken thousands of photographs. Keeping track of them has always been an issue. Though I have used Adobe Bridge quite extensively for this task, I have started to migrate to Adobe Lightroom. This is because Lightroom offers extensive support for adding metadata that makes it easy to find photos later. The pain point, especially when it comes to recognizing faces in Lightroom, is it has been a manual process. You have to add the metadata. The crazy thing is the capability to identify and recognize faces has been part of iPhoto, Aperture, and Adobe’s own Photoshop Elements. No longer. As of the April 21 release of Lightroom CC/ Lightroom 6, the process becomes an absolute breeze. Lightroom CC now contains a facial recognition feature that not only focuses on the faces in a folder full of images but also allows you to search for photos containing those faces.

Video Editing with Photoshop Lesson Plan - Candie Witherspoon

Posted on Apr 13, 2015 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jun 22, 2015

I had never used video editing in Photoshop prior to this course.  I have used many other applications for that purpose in the past. Camtasia Studio is one that I have purchased and used for years because it also allows me to record teacher demonstrations on the computer as well as create videos and edit them.  I'm glad to know that I can do this in Photoshop too.  It will be a good opportunity for me to teach my Photography students a little video editing before they leave me this year.  I have prepared a lesson plan based on this course and the information and resources shared within it.  So do not be surprised if you see links to AdobeTV and Youtube videos that we viewed during this course. :)   Enjoy the lesson plan and feel free to copy it, tweak it, and share it with your fellow educators.   I have enjoyed this course.  I have been using Photoshop for 15 years or so, but there is ALWAYS something I can learn from courses like this, and video editing is a...

Understanding camera basics

Posted on Apr 8, 2015 by Dhanaraj Keezhara Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

Understanding camera basics Cameras come in lots of different shapes and sizes, but they all have a few basic things in common: a lens to focus on your subject, a housing (with a handle to hold it), and a mechanism to record the image. In most cameras these days, that mechanism is likely to be an electronic sensor to record the photograph digitally.  It can be more difficult to override the automatic settings on cheaper models, which might leave you feeling that you are not completely in control of the final image.

How To Create Grayscale Images in Lightroom 5

Posted on Apr 3, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

It should come as no surprise that a lot of the color correction duties usually handled by Photoshop are now being handled by Adobe Lightroom 5. One of the main reasons behind this is the tools in Lightroom are seen as being a lot more robust than their Photoshop counterparts. As well, Lightroom natively manages Camera Raw images without the use of a plug in.
