The Quick Selection Tool - Photoshop Selections Written by Steve Patterson. In a previous Photoshop tutorial, we learned how the Magic Wand Tool works and why it can be a great choice for selecting areas of similar tone and color. In that tutorial, we used the Magic Wand to easily select the clear blue sky in an image, which we then replaced with one that was a bit more interesting. But if any of Photoshop’s selection tools deserve to be called "magic", it’s not the Magic Wand. It’s the tool we’ll be looking at in this tutorial – the Quick Selection Tool. Camping and campfires - Cool Camping the ultimate guide When you return to your tent after a day outdoors and dusk is drawing in, is there anything more magical than the glow of a campfire to see you through the evening? The moment the heap of wood in front of you crackles and creaks into life, the best part of any camping holiday can begin. Before long, you’re wrapped in a blanket watching sparks and glowing ash float languidly up into the starry sky above, as your cheeks glow with the heat of the blaze. Spending time together in front of a campfire is an undeniably wholesome activity – gazing at a fire will fill you with sense of wellbeing that staring at EastEnders just never will.

» ‘You sold out your nation’: A scathing letter to President Obama Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind! This week, you gave a beautiful speech to the American people. And let me be clear: When I say the American people, I mean all legal citizens of the United States, regardless of their birth country. The speech was full of love and emotion. It would have been brilliant if you hadn’t delivered it while holding a gun to the country’s head. What you actually said to the citizens of this great nation is that you are the imperial king, and you don’t care what we, the people, want.

Crayon Rocks We've had a very, very warm winter here in Michigan. With such little snow, the ground has been exposed and my little rock hounds have been collecting rocks again. I thought we'd revisit the types of rocks again (sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous) - but this time give them a more active and visual way to think about how each are formed. - Live flight tracker!

» Texas Town Fires Entire Police Department, Crime Drops By 61% Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind! A Texas town has proven that there is a solution to out of control cops after it replaced the entire police department with private security officers and saw a remarkable drop in crime by 61%. Sharpstown, located southwest of Houston, decided in 2012 that regular public policing was proving wholly ineffective, and opted not to renew a contract with the constable’s office. Instead the town’s civic leaders hired private security agents with the company SEAL Security Solutions, and devised a more effective policing strategy. “Since we’ve been in there, an independent crime study that they’ve had done [indicates] we’ve reduced the crime by 61%” in just 20 months, James Alexander, Director of Operations for SEAL told reporters with

My cousin got me started geocaching. She inspired me to hide my first two in my home town. She even climbed to the first Mount Everest base camp and located the cache there. by itosukai May 16

Well I have hidden 16 caches at the movement but right now its a bit too much snow around. by grundtvig4 Feb 1

I too dislake caches where you have to take great risks and prefer caches which are nicly placed and where you can sign on a dry pice of paper. by grundtvig4 Feb 1

Nice. We have found a few but have hid none. We love the historical finds, HATE micros. Often they are so difficult to locate and not very interesting. Team Wolfseekers! by jadams Jun 2

Matchbox or film canister should be the smallest. Magnet key holders are ok too. by geo_48 May 25

We are begginners ; we enjoyed this one : la roche de Longemor N 48° 08.521 E 006° 42.518 ;-) by nath88 May 24

I do hide them occationally. I love the ones that really are creative and unusual.. BUT I absolutly DISPISE micros, especially in trees or rock. I believe caches should be hard to hide, not impossible to find by mrdiamond May 24

It has been a couple years since we hid a cache. We do have a couple travel bugs out there. But, I haven't checked on them lately. by georgebrett May 24

I think a cool idea would be to integrate social networking (e.g. gowalla or stickybits with geocaching). For example, put note for a gowalla location. At the gowalla location, put note for the final cache coordinates. by mdelaplane Dec 13

Simply one of the coolest things of our time. A game most people don't even know is going on around them... by the_third_man Dec 11
