• 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, 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...

A Vignette Photoshop Effect

Open the picture you want to give the vignette effect to in Photoshop. You can use the method of Place to open the picture in an existing blank Photoshop document. 

Download the image I'm using by right clicking and saving the image below... or just copy and paste it in Photoshop. | Sorry about the "do not steal", don't want a prized possession being stolen;-) |

After opening the picture, press “M” on your keyboard or select the rectangular marquee to select the region you want the vignette to exclude. Press “Ctrl Shift N” to create a new layer.

Press “Alt Ctrl D” or “Select – Feather” and type in a figure in the box that appears. I’m using 20px.

Note that the bigger the value you enter, the bigger the vignette effect.
Make sure that you are on the newest layer you created. Press “Ctrl Shift I” to select the inverse of the selection. Press “G” or select the Paint bucket tool and choose the color you want the vignette to be. I’m gonna use white for mine. 

Click on the selection and you should have your vignette effect on the photo. Here’s my final result.

Note that your result might differ from mine a lot, depending on the size of your selection and feather size.
What do you think???
