• The Holy Communion

    The Holy Communion is an act of worship and thanksgiving that should be participated in and done by churches, gatherings and families in accordance to Christ's word (Luke 22:19) "To do this (the Holy Communion) in remembrance of Him" in order to thank God for sending His Son, thank Jesus for giving His life and to show our unity (oneness) with God... but why?

  • Is listening to secular music bad?

    - Is all secular music bad?
    - Am I saying that secular musicians are not talented?
    - What about secular musicians that are believers?
    - But secular music is better than Christian music
    - Why music... why not tv, games, etc?
    The Bible says to not be equally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14)... and listening to secular music makes you...

  • Why didn't you tell them about Jesus?

    Hell is real. It is your responsibility (as well as mine) to tell those who do not know about where people without Christ are headed. We will be held responsible for not sharing our faith... for being disobedient. Your salvation is not meant to be mysterious; Everyone should know. Not fulfilling the Great Commission is disobedience to...

  • Worshiping God is more than lifting y...

    Worshiping God, being in the Spirit, feeling God's presence is much much more than lifting your hands up. Some do so because they think it is the right thing to do in God's Presence, others because they see people doing so, and others, for many more wrong reasons: Pride, hypocrisy, etc, or the right ones: adoration, joy, etc. When should you lift your hands up though?

  • Do not take God's glory

    Don't take God's glory. Never do. God gives you gifts, skills and talents, so the world can see, be amazed and through your giving Him glory, lead people back to Him. This is a reminder, one that I've needed to remind myself over and over again... Do not take God's glory or He will take it back...

Blending Options in Photoshop

Blending options” is what gives your text, image, etc something extra for it to stand out. The thing for you to do is to practice as much as possible without worrying, that’s how you’ll learn Photoshop. Don’t worry about making a mistake, you’ve got “Ctrl Alt Z” to step back any time you wish.

I’ll show the most common blending options. First of all, to get “Blending options” you either go to “Layer – Layer Style – Blending options” or “Double click on the layer you want to add the effect on”. Alternatively, you can click on the icon circled below.

I’ll describe each briefly and give an example.

A drop shadow allows you to add a regular shadow with the option of increasing the distance, spread and size. Useful to make objects stand out in bright backgrounds.

Allows you to give an object a glow. Useful to make objects stand out in dark backgrounds.

In my own words, a bevel and emboss style makes the edges of an object look “sweety” or maybe glassy.

Adds a gradient(a smooth blend from one color to another) to an object.

Simply fills the object with a pattern.

Adds a colored outline to the edges of the object.

FINALLY, all these blending options covered here and others can be joined together to create a really neat text/type effect. See below.

Don't forget to practice... that's the only way to improve.

God bless.
