    Jurassic Park Theme

    I have always been a fan of this music and have used the original on an Audio Visual called The Blue Mountains However, I came across this version recently, which I think is superb to listen to and watch this guy play the theme on ONE guitar. A solo Weissenborn arrangement of John William's 'Jurassic Park Theme' by Thomas Oliver.

    I do sometimes mention it, but I am also conscious that sometimes I might be hitting people with too much at one time. It’s like the basic brush, I use it 99% of the time, but do I show each time how to find the brush? The graduated filters in Raw and PS also snap to a preselected angle if you hold the shift key and drag left or right. holding the shift key when dragging one layer onto another is a similar thing. It ensures that one layer sits square on top of the other, which can be useful

    Adobe Camera Raw

    So, given the fact that we have been at home for the past weeks when we expected to be travelling up north. I needed something to do. So I have spent some time recording a completely new set of full screen HD videos on Adobe Camera Raw. They will replace the smaller videos that I have on line at the moment. Might have them all up and posted by tomorrow. 24 videos running in total for over 6 hours on everything I can think of. Now that I present the videos in number order and laid out in a logical learning order. (easier first) Anyone who wants to learn the skills can just start at number 1 and go along the list as far as they want.

    As things are a little quite at the moment, I thought I would ask for some comments on how you would process this image

    Painting - Spring Cleaning and New Art

    Just spent a week with the painters, painting the entire inside of the house! Wow, what a job. Moving furniture, spring cleaning and I am knackered and too old for this stuff. We had all of the holes in the walls where pictures previously hung filled and painted so we could start fresh. Now most of the walls are bare, so we have to decide what pictures we want to replace or change and yesterday I took this one in to have a 48 inch canvas wrap done. Cost $240. The image front will be just under 48 inches because 50mm per side is required to allow for the wrap.

    Painting - Spring Cleaning and New Art

    Barry I know how you feel. We have an easier solution though - we give the decorator a key and go on holiday for a week. On return there is a strong smell of paint but everything is finished. The only snag is that decorators here prefer to do inside work in winter so we've had to holiday in January a few times. Funny to talk about Spring cleaning - I switched the central heating on last weekend! Paul

    Upgrades Needed?

    USB C Superdrive [Updated Version] PATUOXUN External Drive CD/DVD with USB3.0 Doreen, I was forgetting that you may need to write discs for other people. The links above show two drives that are cheaper than the apple superdrive and look to be better to be able to connect to the new iMacs. You need to buy a cable that converts the apple superdrive to fit the new iMacs. You can even use them with Windows 10.

    Hi Everyone, This week's new free tracks are a lot of fun. We have: "THE ARCADE SPACEMAN" – (Looping) – In the year 20 billion! …Okay, maybe 1982. …Anyhow, this might be fun in a space game or app. It lives on my Chiptunes 2 page: https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-2/ "OVER THE POLAR MOUNTAIN" – (Looping) – The child dreams of the tiny train, under icy moonlight, making its way across the great polar North. It struggles up the enormous mountain, finally reaches the top and then chugs down the other side. "OF DREAMS AND GAMES" – (Looping) – Might sound nice under the intro screens for a mystical RPG or fantasy-based game. Both are on my Fantasy 8 page: https://soundimage.org/fantasy-8/ "THE PLASTERED PELICAN BAR AND GRILLE" – Filled with an assortment of rowdy birds, this dockside bar is quite a spectacle on Friday nights. Come to think of it, it’s a spectacle on any night. The wild festivities are on my Funny 5 page: https://soundimage.org/funny-5/ "BOT BUILDERS" – (Looping) – Creating cities of tomorrow? on my Technology 2 page: https://soundimage.org/technology-2/ As always, if anyone is interested in checking out some of the projects I've custom scored, you can find a brief list here with links: https://soundimage.org/custom-work/ Enjoy!

    Wacom Intuos Photo Tablet problems

    if you have problems with your pen (my pen drags my workingfield to all directions when i use the brush or pencil) go to setup wacom tablet and go to calibrate (your pensil) and deselect Windows-inkt (left under) it could be that after the next update it wil be selected again, so deselect again if you have some troubles again. good luck. I started with Wacom's very first tablet, the Bamboo pen tablet , and have used an XP-Pen DECO 03 ( https://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/314.html ) for some months now. I also have a XP-Pen Artist 12 pen display monitor ( https://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/380.html ) , but I prefer the DECO 03 drawing tablet . Mine is a 10x5.62 inch active area size which is a good compromise between taking up a ton of desk space, but still be big enough for fine control. I also love the Express Wheel on the DECO 03 , which I use exclusively for brush size.

    Things are also a little quiet here today, cool weather, rain and I just finished my Shooting Raw Project.and looking for something to do So. I sat down with Lithman's original Raw image (thanks for sending it) and recorded the manipulations I made. The video is stitching together as I type, so I will add a link to it a little later.
