What I Did With A Black & White Photo

What I Did

Make different layers depending on the color that you are using for example separating the forest from the water making sure the two color do not mix into each other. I also use light burn/dark burn to give the photo a better look, I also lower capacity to 75%. Another good idea is to put a slight background of yellow and make sure its on low capacity like roughly 30%. The reason why I say that is because it give the photo a more sunny vibe and more appealing to the viewer. Go to any web browser and select any photo that can work well with the image once you have attached it to your main image use the erase tool to get rid of unwanted parts to make it more natural to your main image.

New GPS technology

britain-in-pic-2

New GPS technology that can identify locations accurate to within centimetres could open the way for huge advances in virtual reality and mobile mapping, scientists believe.

Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas said the centimetre-accurate GPS-based positioning system could allow unmanned aerial vehicles to deliver packages to a specific spot on a consumer’s back porch.

The new system, which is far more precise than the orientation capability currently available on smartphones, could also enable collision avoidance technologies on cars and allow virtual reality (VR) headsets to be used outdoors.

Researchers said the advanced GPS coupled with a smartphone camera could be used to quickly build a globally referenced 3-D map of one’s surroundings that would greatly expand the radius of a VR game. Currently, VR does not use GPS, which limits its use to indoors and usually a two-to three-foot radius.

Mobilegeddon’ could be bad news for 40% of top websites

Google, which dominates online search, is launching an algorithm to favor sites that are “mobile-friendly.” This means that people who use Google to search on their smartphone may not find many of their favorite sites at the top of the rankings. Sites that haven’t updated could find themselves ranked way lower, which in turn could mean a huge loss of business.

Search giant Google, which comScore Media Metrix
estimates has a 65% market share of U.S. Internet searches, wants sites to load quickly and be easy to navigate on a mobile phone.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While companies like Apple are working at reengineering the trackpad, Logitech is sticking with what it knows works – the mouse.

The company recently announced the MX Master, a new state of the art mouse that looks and feels even more futuristic than any trackpad on the market, and is extremely precise. We were fortunate enough to be able to test out the device for ourselves before its release.

tesla-model-s-price-drops-powertrain-options-simplified-88687_1

As Tesla announced their new, better/cheaper leasing program for the Model S over the weekend (full details/monthly payment schedules can be found here), they also quietly decentness the minimum requirements for the P85D.

Previously, one had to have the P85D equipped with the Tech, Smart Air and 21″ wheel packages to get the top-of-the-line AWD, 0-60 mph in 3.2 second ultra performance package.

Today, not so much.

Now you can pass on all that extra stuff (that really doesn’t affect the performance of the car) plus delete out the new “Black Textile Seats” the company introduced at the time of the car’slaunch and save another $3,500.

The new total on Tesla Model S P85D?  $105,670   A full $14,500cheaper!  Additionally, you can lease the P85D now from$1,461/month.
