Adobe Photoshop is a given in any designer’s wish list, and it comes with a host of features that allow for excellent and professional photo editing.

How to Photograph your Artwork for a Portfolio or the Internet Every artist needs to keep visual records of their work—and whether you plan on selling your art right away or keeping it for years, you should always have up-to-date images ready to share. In this tutorial I’ll explain exactly how to take great photos of your artwork, and cover a few VERY basic steps in Photoshop that will get your images ready for print or uploading onto the internet. (And by the way, if you don’t have an online portfolio yet, check out foliotwist or Hands Free Artist Websites. I co-founded both of those website services, and they’re a big help for getting your art online.) For those of you looking to make traditional 35mm slides out of your digital photos, I’ve included a link at the end of the article for that. All right, lets get started. . .

GIS for RIDGE Research This article appears in RIDGE Events, 5(2):5-7, 11, 1994 Dawn J. Wright The increasing amount and inherent complexity of data collected in multiagency, multidisciplinary national and international research programs such as RIDGE will require the implementation of more powerful data management and analytical techniques. One critical aspect in the observational and data processing systems envisioned by RIDGE is the requirement of remotely-sensed and in situ data dissemination and sharing (RIDGE, 1993). Data sharing reduces cost and fills potential spatial and temporal voids in large datasets. After 30 years of synthesis and development, there are still many competing definitions of GIS (Maguire, 1991). GIS now represents a $456 million industry (Daratech Inc., 1994), with over 280 different brands available to government, industry, and academia (GIS World Inc., 1993). GIS may also be used effectively in support of RIDGE-related research. References Caswell, D. Haymon, R. Haymon, R.

SketchBook Pro SketchbookPro 2 Le logiciel SketchBook Pro d’Autodesk (Ex Alias) est un logiciel de dessin et d’esquisse comme le mentionne le nom. Cela démarre tout de suite par une pleine page blanche et la reconnaissance du stylet de la tablette fait partie intégrante du soft. Le stylet Wacom est donc reconnu, la gomme au bout aussi. En fait, le logiciel propose les outils par défaut de dessin traditionnel: le crayon, le stylo à bille, l’aérographe, le pinceau, le feutre, le marker, le feutre-pinceau, un outil de dilution et des gommes… On retrouve la démarche mimétique qui caractérise la majorité des logiciels de dessin pur. La palette d’outils propose des outils simples dont les propriétés par défaut sont réglées en partie par le logiciel. Chaque outil de la barre d’outils a droit une petit fenêtre d’option(s). Les appellations des outils correspondent à celles des outils traditionnels. Pour trouver un réglage concernant spécialement le stylet, il faut aller dans le menu contextuel de « Edit ».
