1. Start Photoshop and create a new file, adding a background and text. As with the other programs, your Creative Cloud account will provide you with a free place to store your work.
2. Open the Type tool on the Tools panel and type the word _photoshop_ into the text box.
3. Select the word by pressing the letter ‘P’ key on your keyboard.
4. Activate the Type tool by pressing the letter ‘T’ key on your keyboard. The word _photoshop_ should now have a custom shape. Press the left mouse button to place the word on the background.
5. Activate the Rectangle Tool with the letter ‘R’ key on your keyboard. Draw a rectangle on the canvas.
6. Click with the left mouse button in the canvas to add a layer to your image. Name the layer **_Title_**.
7. Bring back the Type tool to edit the text on the layer. Make your changes, such as changing the text size and color.
8. Select the Type tool again. Select the text you just created, and press the letter ‘T’ key on your keyboard to Ungroup the selected text.
9. Press the letter ‘H’ key on your keyboard to create a new layer on the layer stack.
10. Draw a rectangle on this new layer, and name the layer **_Background_**.
11. Select the Background layer, and press the letter ‘T’ key on your keyboard to Ungroup the selection.
12. In the Layers panel, select the Move tool with the letter ‘M’ key on your keyboard.
13. With the Background layer selected, press the right mouse button and choose Move from the drop-down menu. In the dialog box that appears, click OK.
14. Select the Move tool with the letter ‘M’ key on your keyboard again. Press the right mouse button and choose Reflect from the drop-down menu.
15. Press the left mouse button and hold it over the text you created in the Type tool. A red circle will appear around the text. Press the letter ‘A’ key on your keyboard to activate the Align tool.
16. Select Align from the dialog box that appears and press the center button on your mouse.
17. Press the letter ‘C’ key on your keyboard to Select Compatible.
Elements is actually a free download in the sense that you can download a version and use it for free but you’ll pay to upgrade to the full version at some point in your life. It’s a little like having a subscription to a gym membership. You can use it for free, but if you want to use all the machines, you need to pay for the access.
Adobe Photoshop Elements also allows you to save your work as JPEGs or photos, in addition to doing the usual conversions.
This tutorial is going to cover everything that you need to know about opening, editing, saving, and printing files.

How to open a JPG file in Photoshop Elements
We are going to be using the file type of JPEG in this tutorial, which is a type of file format that stores digital images. This means that we are using JPEG files to store our images, not that we are saving JPEG photos, of course.
JPEG is a type of file format that was specifically designed to store images quickly. JPEGs are smaller in size than your average image, and they use a lossy compression technique to make it so that it will look good in smaller space without losing too much quality. A JPEG photo can compress to roughly 200KB.
You can use the ‘File’ menu in Photoshop Elements to open JPEG files. Click the ‘File’ menu and click ‘Open.’ From the ‘Open’ section of the ‘File’ menu, there is an option that allows you to browse to a specific location of where you would like the file to be saved.
You can also click on the image, and if you click on the ‘Paste’ option, it will automatically add the image to your current open file.
How to edit a JPEG file in Photoshop Elements
After you have opened the file you want to edit, you can use the tools that are in the ‘Tools’ menu. There are many different types of tools that you can use in the ‘Tools’ menu, such as the ‘Lasso’ tool which allows you to make a selection by drawing around a part of the image. You can also use the ‘Crop’ tool to crop the image to make it a specific size and shape.

Students have been instructed to stay away from the premises until further notice. The activity was reported to the police
KOLKATA: A parent of a student injured in a fire incident at the Kolkata School of Art & Technology (KAST) is pressing the school administration to hand over the management to her.
The incident took place after the students were not allowed to elect their captains. Students had used a large blowlamp as a prop and some candles.
The parents want the school to hand over the management because they feel they are the ones who are liable for the negligence of the school.
“For the first time in my life, I have not received any apology from the school administration. Neither the teachers nor the students have been fired or even placed under suspension,” Iain Thomas, a mother of a KAST student, told TOI.
She also demanded that the school handover the management to her.
“If the authorities feel that this is a serious matter, they can take measures to file a case against the principal. Unfortunately, the administration did not handover the management to me and would not even apologise. I have not even received a written apology from the school administration,” Thomas alleged.
Thomas has been trying to get in touch with the school since Monday.
The students have been advised to stay away from the premises until further notice.
“We do not feel safe with the students in the school. If the school administration has to handover the management, they will have to fire the principal, teachers and students, as they are all responsible for this incident. An investigation is on and we hope to receive some answers soon,” Thomas said.Share this:
Napa Democratic Representative Mike Thompson asked the Federal Communications Commission Chairman to open up White House meetings and hearings to the public.
In a letter addressed to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, Thompson said the public needs to know what’s going on in the room.
“The administration is making every effort to shield itself from the public, especially as it relates to its illegal war in Iraq and on other issues,” said Thompson, who represents the 9th District of California.
If the public can’t see the meeting they can’t see it for themselves what’s going on,” he said.
Genachowski says the meetings with the private sector have already been made public.
Potassium currents in freshly isolated, cultured neonatal rat cardiomyocytes.
Patch-clamp techniques were used to determine the biophysical properties of potassium currents in freshly isolated, cultured (3-day) neonatal rat cardiomyocytes. The following K+ currents were observed: a transient outward current (I(to)) was elicited with depolarizing pulses between -50 and +100 mV with a maximal amplitude of -77.2 +/- 7.0 pA/pF (n = 10), and the inward rectifier current (I(K1)) was seen with hyperpolarizing pulses between -80 and -60 mV with a maximal amplitude of 4.3 +/- 0.4 pA/pF (n = 23). Consistent with previous studies, a delayed rectifier outward current (I(Kv)) was observed with a maximal amplitude of -102.9 +/- 14.1 pA/pF (n = 8). A tetraethylammonium-sensitive inwardly rectifying current (I(Kir)) was also observed with a maximal amplitude of -52.9 +/- 3.6 pA/pF (n = 13). Activation of I(to) and I(Kv) was dependent on membrane depolarization and occurred at voltages that fell within the physiologically relevant range (-50 to +60 mV). Activation of I(to) and I(Kv) exhibited time constants of -6.3 +/- 0.9 and -1.7 +/- 0.3 ms, respectively. Inactivation of both I(to) and I(Kv) occurred more rapidly than current activation, with time constants of -0.8 +/- 0.4 and -0.3 +/- 0.02 ms, respectively. Neither the time constant of inactivation of I(Kir) (9.6 +/- 1.7 ms) nor the relative differences in the activation or inactivation kinetics of I(to) and I(Kv) were significantly different from those reported previously in guinea pig cardiomyocytes. Sotalol, a nonspecific beta-adrenergic and nonselective K+ channel blocker, had no effect on the amplitude, voltage dependence, kinetics, or pharmacology of the whole-cell K+ currents in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes. The presence of the delayed rectifier outward current in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes is consistent with other studies indicating
