Adobe PhotoShop Review
the Best Photo and Graphics Editing software

For Windows and Mac users

Adobe PhotoShop Review - the Best Photo Editing software

Adobe Photoshop CS2
This is my absolute favorite program, I use it all the time for editing photos and graphics.
Adobe Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed and published by Adobe Systems for Windows and OS X.

Photoshop was created first time in 1988. Since then, it has become the de facto industry standard in raster graphics editing, such that the terms "photoshopping" and "photoshop contest" were born. It can edit and compose raster images in multiple layers and supports masks, alpha compositing and several color models including RGB, CMYK, Lab color space (with capital L), spot color and duotone.

Photoshop has vast support for graphic file formats but also uses its own PSD and PSB file formats which support all the aforementioned features. In addition to raster graphics, it has limited abilities to edit or render text, vector graphics (especially through clipping path), 3D graphics and video. Photoshop's featureset can be expanded by Photoshop plug-ins, programs developed and distributed independently of Photoshop that can run inside it and offer new or enhanced features.

GET THIS, highly recommended, I use it all the time. ... and the best thing it's available FREE as a legal download. Adobe actually gives away this awesome program. Why? because this Adobe Photoshop CS2 version, released in 2005, is discontinued and replaced by another program (Adobe Photoshop CC in 2014). I'm sure if you are a professional photographer you want the newest version, however this version CS2 is VERY good.

Photoshop is a revolutionary piece of software that not only changes images, but also changes lives. Photoshop has become the foundation on which many freelance designers make their living, it is a vital piece of kit in any designer’s artists’s tool-belt.

Without Photoshop there would be no impossibly beautiful women plastered on the front of magazines, without Photoshop everyone would be seen as they are, warts and all, and without Photoshop the selfie rebellion might have looked a little different.

That’s not to say that everyone alters their images, but these days it is incredibly common for most people, from well-paid magazine artists, to self-obsessed teenage girls, to use Photoshop on a daily basis.

The most recent versions of Photoshop include a number of 3D modelling improvements and video editing, giving you the same control over your videos that it gave you over your images for many years.

The Adobe Photoshop interface is rich and plentiful, which is one of the reasons why it has become so popular, but at the same time this is one of its few downfalls. Although it has been used by many amateurs across all professions, the interface can be a little confusing to these amateurs at fist. There is a lot going on, a lot to do and a lot to learn about, which often puts the inexperienced user off.

NotePad++ Review – a Simple little Text Editor - The Best

Notepad++ (Notepad Plus Plus) is a FREE powerful opensource, feature-packed text editor that more or less has everything Notepad needs but lacks (it can replace Notepad in Windows). Supports Multiple languages.

Loads of options:
Behind a clean face and busy but efficient toolbar, Notepad++ is a wonder of features and options. You can choose to use it as a simple text editor for plain text, and it is absolutely perfect for this, for taking notes, for creating plain text for use in HTML og Word documents where you don't want any text formatting initially. I use it ALL DAY for everything.

One cool thing is you can have many text files open simultaneously and easily switch from one to another. That's the feature I like the most.

How to create a ​Sidebar widget background image or Sidebar widget background color

Have you ever been wondering how to put a background image in a single text sidebar widget of your wordpress ?
.. or specific background color in a single wordpress sidebar widget?

Look no further, I will reveal to you how to do that. Here it is.

1. firstly, each sidebar widget has an unique ID. In my theme, the upper sidebar widget have ID number of 2 and is named #text-2, the next sidebar widget could have ID text-3 and so on.

How to check what is the ID of a specific sidebar text widget?
Easy, open one of your posts and look at the page code and look for each widget. To make it easier, go to your wordpress widget menu and type a text in each of your text widgets: fx. widget 1, widget 2 and so on.

.. Next look at the page code and find the text you just typed in and find the ID number for each of your text widgets.

OK, now you have your sidebar widgets ID

Let's say your upper sidebar widget has ID 2 (that's what I have on my blog), say you want to put a background image in this widget only.

Here is what you do:

1. Put this code in your style.css file (look in menu appearance and editor). Add the below code to your style.css file. If your theme has custom css file, then add the code there.

/* sidebar widget background image. no-repeat or choose repeat */
#text-2 {
background-image: url('http://www.YourSite.com/photo/image.jpg');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
}

2. if you want to make the image repeat exchange no-repeat with repeat

3. That's all there is to it

How to create a Sidebar widget
background color

1. Identify the ID of the sidebar widget you want to add a background color to.

2. then add this code to your style.css file (or custom css file if you have that)

/* sidebar widget background color */
#text-2 { background: #e579f2; }

3. That's all there is to it


NOTE: text inside /* .......  */ is a comment that is not shown, it's only for your own information.

Here is how you can copy posts or pages from from one wordpress installation to another wordpress installation

​Say you have a wordpress blog on a domain and create another blog on another domain. You have some nice posts you want to import to the second domain or nice elements you want to transfere to another blog.

Here is step by step how you can do it.

If you want to export all posts in a category you can do that - jump to step 4). If you only want to export single posts use these steps.

  • On the old blog make a new category fx. "import"
  • Install a plugin that duplicates posts and pages. fx this one "Duplicate Post" by Enrico Battocchi.
  • Dublicate the posts you want to export to the new blog and publish the cloned posts in the import category.
  • Go to admin panel and tools. Choose "export" and create the export file.
  • Now go to your new wordpress installation go to "tools" choose import. You get a page with different options. Choose the bottom option "wordpress", which is to install the official "wordpress importer" plugin. Install the plugin.
  • Import the file you created from the first blog. The category "import" is created automatically on your new blog. You can change the category to whatever you want.

That's it, you have copied your posts to your new wordpress installation.

NOTE: If you want your second wordpress blog to rank in google in SEO. You should know that you cannot have duplicate content i.e. same content on your first blog and your second blog. Google will not rank the content on the second blog. You need to rewrite it or delete the first content and make a 301 redirect to the second page. The correct way if you want to move posts to another domain is to make a 301 redirect, that's an instruction to google that the content has moved permanently to a new url and you will keep the ranking in google or at least 90%.  

​How to convert a wordpress Page to a Post or a Post to Page

Have you been wondering if it is possible to change a page to a post - or a post to a page. It is possible.

Here is how to do it: Install this Page to Post wordpress plugin "post-type-switcher"

With this plugin you can convert: Page to Post - Post to Page - Page to Attachment - Post to Custom

​How to copy single pages from one WordPress installation to another WordPress installation

You can use the export function as described above to export all pages to the new installation. If you only want to export single pages you can do that by first changing the page to a post, then put that post in the import category and use the guide above to copy the post to your new wordpress installation.

​How to Copy "Thrive Content Editor" content or "Content Templates" to another wordpress installation

Also if you use "Thrive content editor" (like I do), you can transfere "content templates" created in Thrive content editor, to another wordpress installation by using the steps above. If you copy pages or posts to another wordpress installation where you have thrive content editor plugin installed, you have every things including the content templates copied to your new blog. Templates are not actually copied to the thrive editor, you will need to define the templates in thrive editor of the new wordpress installation, but find a template you want to use on one of your imported posts or pages and save as a new template in thrive editor.

That's really nice to do it this way, because thrive content editor doesn't have an export feature for exporting the content templates.

The annoying Adobe Reader right side exportPDF panel

Have you opened adobe reader recently to read a PDF file only to find out that the adobe reader window shows an annoying right grey window or side panel called adobe exportPDF?

You are not alone, adobe exportPDF is there to edit PDF, create PDF or sending PDF files.

But we only want to read a PDF, right?  - so why do they bother us with this window?

adobe reader get rid annoying right panel exportpdf

Refer to the photo above.
In the Menu click "view" then find and click "Read mode", e voila, the sidebar is gone. You can also simply use Control + H and it's gone too.

To make it reappear, click "tools" in the menu and the sidebar pops up again.

Hope that helped.

the sidebar is gone

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC - Adobes newest annoying download - updated nov 2015

I was recently prompted to update my adobe reader and without knowing it I now got their new Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, which is adobe's newest PDF reader. Wow how annoying this is!! - and I am not alone. Read here on Adobes forum: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1810236

"How do I stop the side toolbar from appearing every time I open a pdf in Acrobat DC?"

"Right side tool bar is annoying in Acrobat DC. How can this be fixed?"

​and here: Adobe Reader Acrobat DC: what where they thinking??  https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1835765

​I un-installed adobe acrobat reader DC after few days and reinstalled Adobe reader 11 - and am happy again.

Un-install the new DC version and get the good old adobe reader back. Download the old Adobe reader version here: http://get.adobe.com/dk/reader/otherversions/

beware NOT to download that annoying google toolbar. untick

Alternatively get rid of adobe pdf reader - get a NON-adobe pdf reader

Obviously Adobe dont care a s... about their users and user experience. Here is what I just did: I un-installed Adobe acrobat reader DC, installed the old Adobe reader 11.0. THEN un-installed this also and got a decent PDF reader, the best NON-adobe pdf reader. Look here: PDF-XChange Viewer and what a relief to get rid of adobe reader.
