Article :: Comparing and Filtering Photos in Lightroom 3
If you take thousands of photos every year, you know about the complexity of organizing those images and finding the exact shot you need. Dan Moughamian, author of Adobe Digital Imaging How-Tos: 100 Essential Techniques for Photoshop CS5, Lightroom 3, and Camera Raw 6, demonstrates how Lightroom 3 can make these processes more precise and efficient.
Article :: Animating Text in Adobe After Effects 7.0
After Effects offers many ways to animate text. You can animate text layers by manually creating keyframes in the Timeline panel, by using animation presets, or by using expressions. You can even animate individual characters or words in a text layer. This lesson takes you through several different animation techniques, including some that are unique to text, while you design the opening title credits for an animated documentary called The Pond.
Article :: Selections: The Key to Compositing in Adobe After Effects 7.0
A particle physicist works with atoms, bakers and bankers work with their own types of dough, and compositors work with selections—many different types of selections, each of them derived uniquely. In this chapter, you'll look at the foundation techniques that define how a layer merges with those behind it.
Article :: Getting Familiar with Paths in Adobe Flash CS4 Professional
One of the most important innovations in Flash was a new set of tools that made creating vector graphics as simple and intuitive as creating bitmap graphics. This excerpt, adapted from Adobe Flash CS4 Professional How-Tos: 100 Essential Techniques (Peachpit Press, ISBN 0-321-58004-4), discusses paths, the most basic element of a vector drawing.
Article :: Mastering Vector Design: How to Create Illustrator Patterns
David Karlins dispels some of the myths about using patterns in Adobe Illustrator. With some very simple techniques, you can create and use fascinating patterns for strokes and fills.
Article :: Editing Paths in Adobe Illustrator CS4
David Karlins shows you how to use selection and editing techniques in Adobe Illustrator CS4, including selecting paths and path segments, grouping paths, and aligning anchors.
Article :: Using the Adobe Photoshop CS4 Histogram Panel
In this excerpt from Adobe Photoshop CS4 Studio Techniques, Dan Ablan explains how to interpret and work with the Histogram panel in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

Bio-security for a New Era
Secrets: The Ethics of Concealment and the Ethics of Science in Synthetic Biological Research Dr. Laurie Zoloth, Center for Bioethics, Science and Society, Northwestern University Increasingly sophisticated techniques allow for increasing powerful and creative tools of biology to create new or altered forms of life. Such synthetic biology may offer unprecedented avenues for drug development, alternate energy sources, and medical therapeutics. Yet increasing unease also mounts about the possibl
NASA CONNECT Centennial of Flight: The Wright Math, Problem Solving
In NASA CONNECT The Wright Math, students will learn about the evolution of flight. They will learn how the Wright Brothers became the first human beings to successfully design, construct, and fly an airplane. Students will learn the method the Wright Brothers used in designing their airplane. They will also be introduced to NASA's Morphing Project, a radically new approach to designing aircraft of the future. They will observe NASA researchers using problem-solving techniques to design wings th
NASA CONNECT Geometry of Exploration: Eyes Over Mars
In NASA CONNECT Geometry of Exploration: Eyes Over Mars, students examine how the principles of geometry and linear and angular measurements are used to survey and map the Earth and other planets. A surveyor explains how locations like football or soccer fields and describes the tools and techniques used. Students also learn how NASA researchers use geometric shapes to navigate spacecraft to Mars and how satellites, like the Mars Global Surveyor, and the principles of geometry, are used to deter
This text manual introduces statistical analysis and its underlying philosophy, enabling students to understand how to describe the confidence they have in their analysis. Statistical analysis is one of the most widely used, and abused, techniques in the biological sciences. Statistics are ostensibly used to allow an investigator to be objective. That is, the researcher uses statistical tests to determine whether or not his/her hypothesis is supported by the data collected. Unfortunately, the
Cardiovascular Construction Kit
The Cardiovascular Construction Kit (CVCK) allows students to design and construct a wide range of cardiovascular systems, testing each one to see how it behaves and whether it could actually exist and survive in a real organism. CVCK provides a set of basic components, e.g., pumps, vessels, capillaries and so on, which may be pieced together to construct a cardiovascular system. Gauges and measurement techniques are provided so you can draw conclusions from your experiments. Note: CVCK is a MAC
This software can be used to investigate common molecular biology laboratory procedures using DNA or protein sequence data. These simulations and cases are based primarily on genetic and infectious disease with techniques such as: DNA electrophoresis, Southern blot, PCR, Multiplex PCR, Dot blot, ELISA, Western blot, 96-well PCR, protein electrophoresis. Case It! is collaborative BioQUEST project between the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and Michigan State University.
Cell Differentials offers a visual dataset of white blood cells that gives students practice in developing strategies and techniques for the recognition of these blood cell types. Over 100 different cell images are randomly presented with feedback on successful identification. In traditional labs, the recognition of white blood cell types can be compromised by several factors. Developmental changes can make recognition difficult and some cell types exhibit similar features. Microscopy can be a
