How to Make a 3D Heart – Paper, Card and Foam

How to Make a 3D Heart – Paper, Card and Foam


Today, I’m gonna show you how to make
these really sweet 3D hearts. You can make them out of paper, card, or even foam,
which I’ll show you later. I’ll start by taking a thin piece of card, and we need
to draw on a heart. If you like, you could use a cookie cutter to draw around, but
I’ve made my own templates so I can cut out as many as I like. I’ll give you a
copy of the templates at the end of the video. Draw on your heart shape, then use a pair of scissors to carefully
cut it out. We need our heart shapes to be quite wide
in style (not long and pointy like this one), otherwise it doesn’t really work properly. Next, we need to use a pair of scissors to cut a line
from the top straight down, just under halfway. Then, we need to gently curl the heart
back on itself without creasing a line. Then, use a stapler to pin each half together like this. Next, we need to hold the staple
firmly and peel the heart back on itself to turn it inside out and make it stand
out. Try and tidy up any crease marks, and
that’s our 3D heart complete! Pretty cool, huh? They look really effective, and they’re
really simple to make. You can make a whole load of different sizes and even
different colors. I found they look best if you make them out of this thin foam
instead of paper or card, and they’re easier too. The process is exactly the same:
Draw around the template and cut out the heart. If you are using a cookie cutter, you can just push it into the foam to give yourself an outline. Then, cut it out, make your slice down from the top, then fix it in place with your stapler. Fold it back on itself, and you can really curve the foam to give it some shape I also found they make these foam sheets
with glitter in, so you can make some with those. this foam sheet is actually
self-adhesive, and it’s got a paper backing I can remove if I want to stick
it to something. As well as the red glitter foam, I also
found pink, and they really stand out. You could use these on the front of a
homemade Valentine’s Day card, you might want to make some bunting or a banner
with them, or use them to decorate your space, or surprise someone else. You
could spread some over a desk or stick some on a wall or a mirror If you want to use the heart template I
used, you can take a copy of these and print them out. I hope you’ve enjoyed

Guide to Digital Cameras : Picking a Digital Camera

Guide to Digital Cameras : Picking a Digital Camera


With all the cameras out there, you know,
which one do you pick? The most important thing you have to consider is your application.
You know, how large do you want to print these out at? Or how large do you want the ability
to print these out? Because most people take pictures, and the normal size is a four by
six. But occasionally, they want five by sevens and eight by tens. Well you’ll need more mega
pixels to do that. And you’ll need like seven to eight mega pixels to do an eight by ten.
But if you weren’t going to do eight by tens, you could just wind up with a three to four
mega pixel. But that’s just part of the story. The optics is another part. And if you go
with the better camera companies that have the better optics like Canon, Nikon, Minolta,
Pentax, Olympus, then your eight by ten pictures will have a little bit better quality sharpness
because of the optics, not just the resolution.

Now there’s other good optics and optics basically
is the lens like the Carl Zeiss Lens which is made in Germany. Always had an excellence
reputation are now basically have an exclusive agreement with Sony so even the Sony with
Carl Zeiss Lens are equivalent to the Cannons, the Nikons, the Olympus and Pentax. Also Panasonic
has an exclusive agreement with Leica and Leica makes great lenses too. Which are better?
Well it’s real hard to say, they are all fairly equivalent and it depends on who you talk
to as far as professional photographers which lenses they like. Another thing that’s important
is flash, how far will the flash go and the lower end of the lens and how much the lower
end of the lens means what equivalent does it have on a film camera like a twenty-eight
millimeter lens is very good for scenes. They also have thirty-five millimeter, thirty-five
millimeter sometimes isn’t enough to get scenes completely in but at thirty five millimeter
there is very little distortion as far as a curvature. Whereas a twenty-eight millimeter
there is starts to become some curvature in your photograph and some distortion in that
direction if you’re too close to something.

60 Second Photoshop Tutorial : Put an Image in Text -HD-


One of the best ways to make boring text in Photoshop more interesting is to put an image inside of it. First grab your text tool
and find the font that has put on the most extra holiday weight. I’ll be using Impact as is nice think font
that will allow us to see a good deal of our image. Next scale up your text. Now place the image you want to use above the
text layer. After that move your mouse between
the text and image layer and hold alt. When the mouse changes click to create a
clipping mask. Or right click the image layer and
select make clipping mask. Now move your image layer around to create an
interesting composition for your text. Next we can add a bit of depth to get
the text up off of the background. Go to the FX panel and add on a small bevel and emboss. Then add on a slight drop shadow. This will pull the text away from the
page. Lastly you can add on whatever
decorations you would like. I have a santa have that I cut off the
picture of a relatives head that should work nicely on our text. Now look at that. We
did that in snow time and I think that our text is looking good enough to throw
on our tacky holiday card. If you liked this 60 second tutorial be

Guide to Digital Cameras : Digital Camera Weight & Size

Guide to Digital Cameras : Digital Camera Weight & Size


Size and weight are very important, especially
in the consumer line of cameras. They have cameras that are smaller than a pack of cigarettes
that will take you know, five or six mega pixels. And they’re always trying to get smaller
and lighter cameras because people you know, want to carry these in their purse, in their
pocket, put them in the glove compartment, it’s very important. But as far as what’s
the best camera? Well, if there was only one best camera, then there would only be one
best camera company. So you have to make a decision on which features you like and how
many mega pixels you’re going to need. Mega pixels are very important. Lenses also important
too. Then you have to consider you know, the length that the flash will cover. You will
have to consider probably the optical zoom and also there’s a digital zoom. Digital zoom
is basically just cropping down your picture. It is not zooming in any closer, but cropping
down on your picture which doesn’t alleviate the problem of pixelization as you increase
the size of picture, when you blow it up to a larger size.
