  • How-Tos: 6 tips to help you organise photos on an Android device

    Taking pictures is pointless unless you look at them later. That in turn means organising your photos so you can quickly view the ones you want. Tags make relatively light work of this organisational process and mean items you later want to retrieve can be found more easily. Naming photos as you go is good practice, but not every app you may use on your Android device will allow you to do so. Transferring shots to a PC for tagging can be easier.

  • Opinion: Play With an Online Simulator to Learn Camera Settings

    Modern digital cameras make photography so simple that it seems like you just need to press the shutter release to take a good photo. While that might be true for snapshots, there are many situations in which a little knowledge of photography goes a long way to helping you get a better picture. Have you ever wanted to really understand how all the variables--focal length, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and so on--contribute to your photos? A while ago, I explained how you can use a simple point-and-shoot camera like a photo laboratory to experiment with exposure settings, but this week I've got something even cooler: a Web site that simulates the operation of a digital SLR. You can use it to tweak the settings and see the results instantly.

  • How-Tos: How to create vector masks in Photoshop

    In graphic art and design, a mask is a tool that lets you isolate part of an image from the area surrounding it. Once isolated, you can apply adjustments (for example, special effects or color balance) to that area alone, or use the mask to eliminate the background completely. With Adobe Photoshop CS4 and CS5, you can create masks using both pixels and vector paths, but masks created with vector tools are almost always more accurate than those created using pixel-based tools. Moreover, vector masks are easier to edit later on. Here are some quick steps you can use to create a vector mask.
