Evaluation of Pictures before use in editing

This are some tips to help you choose great images to edit and will make editing much easier.  Tip 1: Choosing large resolution images. When searching for images avoid using images that are less than 2 megapixel. Try to find images that 5 megapixel or higher. Large images offer more detail, especially when zooming in, offer greater color than 2 megapixel or less. Tip 1.5: If you choose to scan you images, use high definition scanner that scans images at 300 dpi (Dots per inch) or greater. Tip 2: Choose images that are related to your theme. Example. If are intending to edit an image with sea or sky, try to find images that have blue in them (although images can edited for color changes). Tip 3: Try to find images that have solid color at the background. These images are great to cut from because when using tools like the magic wand in photoshop, the image is correctly selected. Tip 4: Use stock photo for editing. Already edited images are a bit harder to edit and stock photos online tend to be of great resolution. Tip 5: Choose your color tone well. If the image is intended to be shown on the web RGB is the best option but if the images is intended to be printed use CMYK that has a larger color spectrum. N.B . The printer needs to be CMYK for the best quality images. Tip 5.5: If the an images are vector based. Save the image in pdf format, to keep image quality and also compress the size of the image.

A Small App for Christmas in C#

Hey Merry Christmas to everyone. I wrote a small application in C# that has a blinking label and it goes down and up in the form. First I set the form properties BackColor = Black BackgroundImage = set any image you like BackgroundImageLayout = Center FormBorderStyle = FixedSingle MaximizeBox = False Size =540,530 StartPosition= CenterScreen Text = Happy Holidays so the it looks similar to the picture below Now I inserted a label set its properties BackColor = Transparent Font =Microsoft Sans Serif, 48pt, style=Bold, Italic ForeColor = Green Location =13,10 Text = Merry Christmas And should look similar to this Then add two timers one interval of 10 milliseconds and the other with 250 milliseconds don't forget to enable the timers. Now for the coding part. We start by creating an integer for the location of the label and boolean to check whether the label is at the beginning or at the end of the form. Then I set the integer to 2 (the starting point) and the boolean to true(because it is at the top).   I used the timer that is set to an interval of 10 seconds to move the label up and down the form. First the app set the label position with the current position like so Then the integer is added by one if the label is position is less than the from size therefore the boolean is true, if not the integer is subtracted by one therefore the boolean is false. And For the other timer that is set to 250 milliseconds will make the label blink The method checks if the label is visible and if yes the label will be hid for the next 250milliseconds or if no the label is again visible for the 250 milliseconds  I also added a small video to show you the end result.
