Photoshop Tips for beginners – How to Design Feathered Edges in Photoshop

This tutorial explains how to create soft edges in an image in Photoshop so that it blends into the background 

1. Copy the original picture:
Copy the image so is still the original, and the copy job.

2. Consider the final size:
Before leaving crop the image enough background so you can feather the edges.

3. Touch the picture:
Erase areas in the background that distract from the quality of the image with the rubber seal or retouching tool. Adjust the contrast and brightness, if necessary.

4. Select the area you want pen:

Use one of the selection tools to highlight the area you want feathers. The picture on the left shows the rectangular marquee tool being selected. Use this tool to square or rectangular boundaries, or the oval tool framework for rounded edges or the Lasso tool to images of strange shapes (the Lasso tool is just below the marquee tool).

5. Make a even border :

To highlight its border evenly on all sides become the rule and measure the same number in the directory of numbers in both width and height. The right image is set to inches and the border is set to 3/10 of an inch at each corner. Its border can be more or less.

6: Choose background color:

You will be copying the image and pasting it onto another background but first you need to set the background color of the new image. The background color needs to be the same as the color of the page you are going to paste it on, i.e., you need to chose a black background for a black page.

7. Choose the background color:
You will copy the image and paste it into another fund, but first you need to set the background color of the new image. The background color should be the same as the color of the page to be pasted into, that is, you have to choose a black background for a black page.

Click the bottom tool and choose the preferred color by clicking a color in the palette, or if you prefer to use a color that is not listed in the Color Pallet can enter another hexadecimal code for the color. If you want to match the bottom of the page use the dropper to get the hex color of the background and type in that number.

8. Pen image:

Now, back to the highlighted image and choose “select / feather” from the menu and then choose a range of 4-12 pixels to determine the width of the feathered edge. You can not see a change, but only proceeding to the next step.

9. Copy and paste image

Now choose “Edit / Copy” and “new.” Photoshop automatically opens a new box size image that you copied. Be sure to specify the background color. Now choose “Edit / Paste” and the image of pen should appear in the box that just opened.

10. Save the new image
Select “edit / save” and is now on unless you want to “edit / copy / paste” the feathered image into another image. The finished image as it appears on a black background appears below:

Sketch With Material Design

If you are designer then this article is for you. I did not write this article. Actually i got this useful article from

So i will give credit to smashingmagazine for this article.


The tools are an extension of our hands, and as such, must be versatile, fast and intuitive. Much has changed between the era of offset printing presses and the digital era of multiplatform screens.

Developers have tried to adapt our tools, but Sketch is perhaps the most successful application in this regard its creators have taken the swelling began again and has a smaller feature set fit for purpose. What may seem on the surface to be a simple drawing tool nails done in the basic workflows of digital design. The latest version of Sketch (3.2) came with something special for those interested in the ultimate visual design language Google: the sheet material design labels. In this tutorial, we will design a test application with the help of Sketch and label sheet material design.

New Apple’s iWatch


Before the iPhone 6 came dummies in focus, it was a SmartWatch that when someone mentions Apple jumped to mind. Because Apple WWDC came and went without an iPhone, iPad or iWatch, the rumor mill is now moving his predictions for October.

According to an Apple supplier and sources close to the matter Apple in October (perhaps next to an iPhone or iPhone) to solve its SmartWatch and intends to 3-5 million units per month. Sources speculate that the iWatch could be a curved OLED display and sensors to collect data such as blood sugar, calories burned, sleep activity and oxygen content in the blood sport. The SmartWatch could collect biometric data with your iPhone Touch ID as well.

The iWatch is expected that a modified version of iOS running 8 and we think it will have Apple’s new HealthKit bunch of fitness-tracking apps in tow.

Neuroscientists toward understanding how the brain works – Brain Mapping

Neuroscientists toward understanding how the brain works has made great strides in recent years . U.S. initiative brain will try to create a comprehensive picture of brain activity while in the coming years , Europe’s Human Brain Project , a computational simulation of the human brain will try to make . These ambitious projects would greatly benefit from a new resource : detailed and comprehensive map of the brain ‘s structure and its various regions . As part of the Human Brain Project , German and Canadian scientists led an international team of researchers in the last 50 times the resolution of such a map is a three- dimensional atlas of the brain were produced . Which took a decade to complete atlas , slicing a brain in thousands of thin sections and digitally stitch them back together with the help of supercomputers is required .

As small as 20 micrometers, about the size of several human cells is able to show the details , the brain anatomy.To three-dimensional digital reconstruction of the brain is a major step forward in understanding the guide , Jülich Research Center Katrin Amunts researchers led by a 65- year-old woman in Germany at the start of an MRI machine used for post-mortem brain image . The brain was then cut into ultrathin slices . Scientists stained sections one by one on a flatbed scanner and then imaged. Alan Evans and his colleagues at the Montreal Neurological Institute, a terabyte in size , resulting in about 7,404 images organized in a data set . Evans had to overcome these defects in images so that slicing , bent, torn , and the tissue was torn. They also combine in the brain, each one in its original condition . The result is mesmerizing : the arrangement of cells and tissues to check you out or zooming, a brain model that can swim through .

In the early 20th century , Korbinian Brodmann , a German neuroanatomist sections of the brain under a microscope, looking at the structure and organization of the human cortex into 50 different areas parceled. ” That’s what we ‘ve used that for 100 years has been very much the model structure , ” says Evans . As they map the boundaries between brain areas Brodmann now he and his colleagues are redoing work . Results for the study of various brain functions , providing scientists with a more accurate road map , more like 100 to 200 may show different areas . Amunts nerve fibers in the brain tissue to reconstruct the three-dimensional structure that uses polarized light which is developing a technology . And Karl Deisseroth, a bioengineer at Stanford University , a neuroscientist and developed in the laboratory technique called clarity , scientists directly intact neurons in brain circuitry and allows for viewing of the structures . Because the fat cells in your brain to block light , like any other tissue , is usually opaque . Clarity leaves intact and visible to other structures, replacing them with a gel-like substance , lipid melts away . Clarity can be used on a whole mouse brain , human brain technology completely intact with the current version is too large to be studied . But Deisseroth technology already is easier and less error prone 3d reconstruction , a thin brain, human brain tissue section thousands of times larger than can be used to block calls .

extract object of responseJSON

I solved a synchronous problem with ajax that way to use deferred function. I get as an response now big object with statusResponse etc etc inside.

My JSONP Objects are also successfully stored in responseJSON Object. How Can I extract it or save it in another variable ?


var web = new webService();

and here the class

function webService() {

this.init = function(app) {

    var d = this.connect(app).done(function(){});

WAR between android and IOS

When it comes regarding war in mobile OS , the line between Android and iOS is starting to clear quickly. Choosing a smartphone or tablet platform should be a thoughtful decision because changing iOS to Android or vice versa will require you to buy new applications on Google Play Store (or Apple application ) . Android is now the world’s most communications smartphone platform only uses and is used by many phone manufacturers . iOS only used on Apple devices , the iPhone zoals


Both use iOS and Android touch interfaces thathave a lot in common – swiping , tapping and pinch- and -zoom . Both operating systems for a boot screen, which is similar to a desktop computer . While an iOS home screen contains only rows of icons of applications , Android allows the use of widgets , all the information that is displayed auto – zoals update time and email. The user interface of iOS has a pier where users can deposit your most frequently used applications .

A status bar runs on top on both iOS and Android , which provides information such time, Wi -Fi or cellular signal , and battery life in the Android status bar shows the number of emails or Useful newly received messages .

The video features of Android Jelly Bean and iOS 6.x compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 respectively

Applications available on Android vs iOS

Gets Android apps from Google Play, Hort All that has 600,000 apps available , most whichwill run on tablets. However, some Android devices, Kindle Fire zoals utilize separate applications stores thathave a smaller selection of apps available . Most originally iOS – only applications are already available for Android, including Instagram and Pinterest, and shop more open means of Google applications other unique applications are also available , including Adobe Flash Player and BitTorrent . Android provides access to votes based on Google , YouTube and Google Docs zoals applications.

The Apple App Store offers 700,000 applications hört 250,000 or All are available for the iPad . Most developers prefer to develop games for iOS before developing for Android. Since a recent update , the application of Youtube has become available on iOS, but iOS still offers some applications, including the popular exclusive game Infinity Blade and Twitter client Tweetbot .

The conclusion by comparing Google and Apple app stores is that the most popular applications are available for both platforms. But for tablets , there are more applications designed specifically for the iPad, while Android tablets often versions of Android smartphone applications will expand . Often , developers of new companies focus on one platform ( iOS usually ) when you first launch your application for smartphones Because they do not have the resources to serve multiple platforms from the start. For example, the popular Instagram application started with iOS and Android application came much later .

Device Selection :

A wide variety of Android devices are available in many different price points , sizes and hardware capabilities .

iOS is only available on Apple devices : iPhone as a phone, a tablet like the iPad and the iPod Touch as an MP3 player . These tend to be more expensive than the equivalent hardware that uses Android.

Web Browsing :

Android uses Google Chrome as your web browser while using iOS Safari . Both Internet browsers are similar in quality and capabilities and Google Chrome is also available for iOS . Safari is not available for Android.


Android applications are isolated from the rest of system resources , unless a user specifically grants application access to other features. This makes the system less vulnerable to errors , but revealing confusion means that many applications request unnecessary permissions. The most widespread malware on Android is one where the text messages are sent to additional numbers without user awareness charging and sending personal information to unauthorized third parties . As the operating system is the most popular smartphone , it is more likely to be the focus of attacks.

Malware writers are less likely to write applications for iOS, because Apple reviewing all applications and verification of identity or publishers of applications. However, if an iOS device is jailbroken and installed from outside the Apple store applications , it may be vulnerable to attacks and malware.

iOS pros and cons:

Massive ecosystem of applications : clear advantage for tablet apps on smartphones while the popular applications are available for both platforms generally
Improved integration with Facebook and Twitter is easier to publish and share updates on social networks using iOS Android Due to the depth of synthesis platforms are integrated with iOS .
iOS only apps like Passbook , FaceTime and Square mobile payment application (available in iOS 3GS , 4,4 S , 5 and up , useful only for a limited number of Android phones )
Interface is locked: limited customization options for your home screens , only rows of application icons are allowed. There are no third-party applications are pre – installed by the wireless service provider . Users can only install apps from the App Store
Software updates : Apple offers software updates for all hardware thathave able to handle the new software devices.

Pros and cons of Android:

Massive Selection of hardware : A large number of Android devices are available at different prices with different hardware capabilities , screen sizes and features.
Highly customizable user experience : The home screen can be personalized with not only the application icons , but the widgets allow users to stay connected That or informed . Other examples include SwiftKey , All the keyboard of your Android smart phone and applications that emulate old games consoles modified. Google Apple has fewer restrictions on what type of reproduction allows applications store. For more , you can choose to install Android apps from different places to shop Google Play.
