Guide to Digital Cameras : Digital SLR Camera Features


Digital SLR’s, normally come from about six
mega pixels, generally go to the older ones, to about twelve. And, they’re going to go
to the greater mega pixels, even sixteen and up in the future. And they’re coming out with
more exposure modes, more ways to up flashes, with a hot shoot, so you can use a hot shoot
type flash or other kinds of flash connections, and they are faster. When they start up they’re
faster. The zooms are generally faster in speed when you zoom in and out, and they have
all the bells and whistles that even the prosumer cameras don’t have. So, there are lots of
features to consider with those, and we’re not going to go into too much detail. But you have to remember that as professionals,
you’ll know all those features.

How To Create Easy Parallax Effect, Make Your Photos Look 3D In After Effects Tutorial & Template


Hey, welcome back to my new video. This is
easy tutorials, and for those of you who are the first time in this channel, please consider
subscribing. Today we’ll be creating this: Before we start, I’d like to invite you to
support me on Patreon. You can also get access to all my premium content. So let’s start. First, we have to import our footage into
After Effects. You can download the full project including
the light leaks, from the link in the description. The parallax effect is a technique where background
and foreground images, move by the camera at different speeds, creating an illusion
of depth in a 2D scene. Let’s see how we can achieve this in After Effects, without any
third party plugin. Create a new composition and name it: parallax
animation. I’m using the FULL HD 1080 pixels preset with 30 frames per second and 7 seconds
long. Bring your image into your new composition. Then go to effects and presets panel, and
search for: optics compensation. Apply it to your image layer, and let’s adjust
its settings. Click on this icon, and place the cursor on
the point of interest of your image. This will represent the foreground image, which
will move slower. Select the reverse lens distortion box. Then create a keyframe on the field of view. Move to the last frame, and change this value
to 70. You can test it first, and find the perfect value for your image, but never overreact
with it, if you want to get a realistic result. This is how your image animation should look
like. As you can see the parallax effect gives a good depth to our image. In lots of cases, you can give even more depth
of field to your still images using light leaks and particles overlays. So, let’s bring the light leaks file into
our parallax composition. And change its blending mode to: soft light. If it’s too intense for your image, click
T on your keyboard to open the opacity, and bring its value down, as much as you need. Let’s check our final result. Wow, looks great. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to

Harry Potter and the Best Picture Summary


Harry Potter and the Best Picture Summary Professor, did you hear the news? News, you say? We aren’t nominated for Best Picture! WHAT?? That’s outrageous! Who would do such a thing? I’ll tell you who. Someone that looks just like me, except covered
in gold, that’s who. What? I’m not allowed to be upset about this?? Best Director? Nope. Best Actor? Nope. Actress? Are you serious? Cinematography? Nope. Editing? No. Not even music?? No. WTF you guys!! We made 8 movies. Was it because the scene at the end? When
you kids were grown up? Because I told you, that scene should have
only been in the extended blu-ray version. Hello, everyone. Professor Snape, did you hear about the nominations? Yes and I am appalled. I kept this serious look on my face for over
10 years and George Clooney walks down the beach for 2 hours and suddenly everyone wets
their pants. We had a beach in our movie. I held an elf
in my arms on the beach as he died! I cried during that scene. Thank you! Exactly. We have everything those movies have. Totally have everything. Hugo, a boy in a train station. I wonder where
we’ve seen that before? Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. A boy
who loses his father. I lost both my parents! Moneyball. Sports. We have Quidditch. Yes, but Quidditch is kind of stupid. Midnight in Paris. Time travel, duh!! We did
that years ago. The Help. Racism. We force elves to be our servants. The Tree of Life. Did anyone even see that
movie? No. I hated the Tree of Life. I’ve never even heard of that movie. War Horse. We have war. And flying horses! The Artist. Oh, I actually really liked that. Wonderful, wonderful. I enjoyed it tremendously. To be honest, it– it probably should win. I totally agree. I’m sorry, so what is the deal?? Our movie actually made money. That’s what
the deal is. Well, so sorry we’re a massive success like
the Lord of the Rings. Or Titanic. Sorry everyone loves us! Sorry we influenced an entire generation. Sorry we made 8 movies that people will watch
more than once. So sorry that our last film alone made more
money at the box office than all of the nominees combined! I believe this is what muggles call.. horse
poop. Everyone! We’ve been nominated for 3 awards! Isn’t that exciting? Art Direction, Makeup, and Visual Effects. Ughhhh! Come on! Big surprise there. We win that one with our eyes closed. I’m sorry it’s just not the same.

How to Connect a Olympus Camera to a Smartphone

How to Connect a Olympus Camera to a Smartphone


Hi, this is Rob. I am going to show you how to connect your
Olympus Camera to your smartphone. The first thing you need to do is Download
the free Olympus Image Share App. With this app, you will be able to connect
with your Olympus camera and use your Smartphone as a remote control for the Olympus camera. You can also transfer images from the Olympus
camera to your smartphone. You can enhance the photos that are transferred
to your smartphone with Olympus Art Filters in the app. You can add GPS tags to images simply by transferring
the GPS log saved on the smartphone to the Olympus camera. Let’s connect to the Olympus camera. Once you have the Olympus Image Share App
on your smartphone, open it up. If this is the first time that you have opened
the app, you will see this screen about scanning the QR code on the Olympus camera. You only have to scan the QR code once, because
your smartphone will record, from the QR code, your Olympus Camera´s SSID and the Olympus
Camera’s wifi password to your smartphone wifi settings. Later in the video, I will show you how to
reconnect your smartphone to the Olympus camera next time that you want to connect. Ok, on the Olympus Image Share app, if you
see this screen, tap this Used Now button. If you see this screen, tap this camera icon
on the bottom. Then this window appears, and tap this Easy
Setup button. This window appears, it says “Scan the QR
code shown on the monitor of an Olympus built-in WiFi camera to set up the WiFi connection. Now you need to turn on the Olympus camera
and look for the WiFi icon on the monitor of the Olympus camera. The WiFi Icon is usually in the upper left
of the monitor. If your Olympus has touch screen, then tap
on the WiFi icon to bring up the QR code on the Olympus camera. Then tap the Scan button on the app and scan
the QR code with your smartphone. If you do not have touch screen with your
olympus camera, then you need to go into the Olympus camera menu system. The smartphone connection in the menu is either
located here at the playback menu or on some Olympus cameras, it is located here. This is my menu on my Olympus Tough Stylus
TG-4 camera. I will press OK on the camera to start the
WiFi connection. This window pops up stating that this configuration
is necessary only once. I will press OK to continue. Another window pops up stating to get the
app for the smartphone. I will press OK to continue. The Camera is preparing the WiFi connection. The QR code appears on the camera. Now I will go back to the smartphone app. On the app, press this Scan button. I will place the QR code on the Olympus within
this square on the app in order to scan it. Once scanned, this window appears on the smartphone
app. Stating that the QR code has been scanned. Now press this Connect button on the app. The app is connecting to the Olympus camera. The app is now connected and is ready to use
the four major parts of the app. If you have trouble scanning the QR code,
you can look at the QR code and get your Olympus Camera WiFi SSID and password and enter it
into your smartphone in the wifi settings. Like I said before, you only need to scan
the QR code once. The next time you want to connect, open the
Olympus Image Share App. Then on the Olympus camera tap the Wifi icon
on the monitor. Then you should be connected. When you see this icon turn blue and say “on”,
then you are connected. If you are having trouble connecting, you
can go into the wifi settings of your smartphone, then activate the wifi on the Olympus camera. Your Olympus camera wifi should then pop up
in your smartphone wifi settings. Then on your smartphone, tap on Olympus camera
wifi and connect it. Open the app, now you should be connected. If you are still having trouble, you may have
to scan the QR code again. OK, that is it. That is how to connect your Olympus camera
with your smartphone. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs
up and please subscribe to this channel.

How to reshape images without distorting in Photoshop content aware scale

How to reshape images without distorting in Photoshop content aware scale


I my friends and welcome to my most favorite Photoshop feature of all time. We want to make this bigger without it. Look at it magically grows bigger. So we’re going to resize things without distorting them. And if things distort OK like I man here and I’ll show you how to protect the mean so handsome so if a dude doesn’t get stretched we’re going to get to some more advanced uses as well. Well we just want more surf because we need to end some ticks store stretch for a banner ad maybe a double page spread it’s all using the cool content with scale. Let’s get going in Photoshop right. So we go exercise files from a new folder. This one is over five. Cropping a lining distorting. If you can open up all of the content a with scale 1 to 7 is quite a quite little tips and tricks we can learn with content with scale. First tip is I can’t see one case’s little double Chevron here. You can click on this and it shows you everything that’s open. It can do to square one and let’s say that you’ve got this image but we just need it to be square for some unknown reason. Instagram we use need to be taller because there needs to be text in here you need a structure this way because it needs to be kind of the right size for maybe a double page spread for a magazine. So first thing we need to do is we need to unlock the background. So double click background give it a name. Don’t tell anybody that I do but you should. Next thing I want to do is like generate some space up here you could use image canvas size OK and they just you can type in a size that square. I just like to grab the crop to grab it hold it and drag it to the size I want to be out there. HAVERTON now the magic talk. OK so what’s under it. It’s this one hit content a with scale. So I’d like transform right transoms is going to do this. That’s not what you want. You want this magic wand here counting to go get ready. City holy man just invented more background quha. And when you’re finished and that is the magic tool that’s been there for a long time and if you’re like a lot of advanced uses like you know to be shocking or on your face I love it. And I kind of picked an easy one. But in all honesty it kind of works like that without any help. Only about 30 percent of the time but 30 percent of the time. Good rather than a clone tool stamp madness we all have to do it right. To try and fix it all up but don’t worry the other 70 percent there are tricks to kind of make it work for that as well. Let’s look at it counting the way scaled to this one. Just the same just a little wine for you to practice with. Let’s do it together. First thing let’s rename the background land. Just double click in the background. My Cocteau clicking once I’m holding down the old key and dragging the corners and it goes from all sides just to give myself like how far can this go well here. OK now I’m going to use my. It contained a scale. Now you see I’ve got a shortcut here. That’s not the by default. I added it to keyboard shortcuts and I made my own one because I use it so much and so much I give it like the world’s most sure. I know it. Anyway I shall cut my hair. Leave me learn what I want to do now is it to see how far this goes. Look at this is particularly good as well. It works really well in these small unique high contrast images amongst kind of more generic stuff where I find something like this really useful is if you’ve done like I do a lot of advertising Benas I’ve got a course on HMO banner ad making. OK. And this is perfect for it because you get these kind of weird leaderboards Kalitta boards are a pain right because they are that shape but look all we can do with Konting the scale or the skyscrapers or the long and thin goes along here. OK. Maybe not resizing like that maybe just invent more background this way. Quha let’s look at another use case and this one here. Cool image. I just need I need space over here to add text and if my parents name my grandma a crop to want to put some space in over here please. But if I tried to fill it with a color is this kind of like subtle gradient in the background. I’ll show you a little trick. So if I wanted to fill it I can make a new layer put it underneath and grab my Java tool. I can click on this color. Then I want to fill this layer with it a cool little trick is holding down the option key on the mic. OK on a PC and just hitting your backspace or delete key the one just next to the plus can it fills with the foreground color. Any trick you can see there it’s kind of blended in a couple of parts but not over there. Ah but what if we could use owl dance crazy show up with still using it it contained to wit scale. And watch this and check and say I want it over here is going to Keepon like using this poor image till I get this giant area for my come by my orange flyer or double page spread and I’ve got this kind of cool thing spanning across go up. I’m going to say Kohath losen this of course. I love showing people continuous scale but let’s say you’ve used it before and you run into trouble it’s like it contained a wisco. And let’s look at this handsome man member named the background’s going to stand out. My background a bit. And now I want to resize it. We’re going to run into a couple of problems or one big problem. Watch this. And they Mangere austerity some pretty good job of everything else. Right. So how do we fix Trichy man. Basically we just need to protect him so we can select. I’m going to like the cool thing about it is protecting a person with a selection can be as blunt and as quick as using the rectangle Machi tool and say that but there I want you to be protected. So once you’ve got a selection this little tip is a little hard to remember. He might want to write this one down. So get to select you save the selection. I’m going to call this one man pick OK. De-selected don’t need it anymore. So you say you selection that’s the important bit. Now let me go to it. Continue to a scale. There’s this option this is protect man and I’m just looking at my selection. Now when I drag it out it protects them in return. Quha. Now let’s look at one that kind of almost works. I feel like I need to show you this because if I end the day you’ll be like hey it’s not working on my one so you can go through that same process super quick and just making it big and you use my Konting to wisco So we’re going to run into problems with the bottle here. Q So it just starts getting a bit too tall you might actually find that that’s fine. Who knows how big the bottle is anyway but you know so let’s say we want to protect that. So what we need to do is do a selection. You can use that quick selection or the magic wand 2 or the last two any two you like. I’m just using the rectangle Machi to member save the selection. Give it a name. De-select. And it’s going to work to a degree where this is all but so it works works works. Looks a lot better than it did before. But eventually it just go. It gives up and goes I can’t keep doing it. Conky protecting that area is better than a walls. There are times where it just won’t work. I felt like I need to keep that in the class because sometimes it doesn’t work. What you might do in that case is we looked at content with fill in the last video some is going to kind of sit a limb here and use my cantin to see a scale which we’ve already done because the side to side with the right is this height that didn’t. So instead of kind of dragging this up to the top I’m going to grab my rectangle my Kito grab all of this and I’m going to say please go to it fill and use content where Phil and I got to look at the document and try and fill this background and de-select and it’s done a pretty good job. So kind of a combo deal. The stuff we learned in the intro scores canina with Phil Plus some of the newer stuff with content. A scale now we kind of worked around this one to make it work. They are just images that are too busy too noisy there’s no small part of a more generic background and there are just lots of high contrast areas so let’s have a look at this one and I’ll show you. Sometimes there’s no fixing it. Isko is code like it’s pretty amazing what it’s done like it’s got some interesting things. Case so the most generic stuff I’ve found was in this coffee cup this coffee in the middle here the plate is try to duplicate then it’s done an OK job but I wouldn’t know where to start with this image. And I guess I want you to know that if you need to explain this one it’s tough it’s really cropped in what I probably do is I’d mask out all of these guys separately find a new wood background to stick it on. That was bigger than what I had. Then I can separate them all out manually. It would take a lot longer but I can’t think of a bit away for that one. Let’s go to the chevrons and find the last one. The A little tip I want to give you is sometimes say this when he I need some I need more Wavves because I need to put the text for the better way that I’m doing. So again the name that layer grabbed my crop touring and make some space up here. And if I just use the whole thing which we’ve been doing up until now. Fine but it’s not what I want. It’s given me more sand and more waves. What I want to do is just use my rectangle Machi to drag a box around the stuff you want and then transform just that part. Most people try and do the whole image. We can just do a pop maybe sky because you need a bigger sky for logos and stuff to go into. So just make a selection. I’m going to go to continue to wisco and check out these people down here and that’s the cool thing about it is that the people will stay the same way the waves get bigger and believable the waves. Gil Tola the people stay fine Wisma you can tell I love content a scale enough that I gave the world’s worst shortcut by my friends that get into the next video.

[2017,PC] SOLVED – How to watch a 3D Movie in 2D on VLC (Fixing the Double-Image Problem)

[2017,PC] SOLVED – How to watch a 3D Movie in 2D on VLC (Fixing the Double-Image Problem)


Hello guys! Today I’m gonna show you how
to watch a movie that is in 3D in 2D. So basically if you download a movie
or bought a movie and try to play it that’s
3D on your VLC and it turns out like this; there’s
two screens or two images instead of just one. The thing you have to do here is that first, you have to go into “Tools” “Preferences”, and then go into “Video” and right here on “Force Aspect Ratio” You’re gonna put in: 32:9 and then save. So, if I shut this down and I open up the
movie again you’ll see that it will have the “Aspect Ratio” on 32:9, that makes it a little bit wider and not so tall. And now we have to go into “Tools”>”Effects and Filters” “Video Effects” “Crop”, and then on the right, we’re gonna put in 960 and there you go! That’s how you play a 3D movie in two dimensions so you get one
screen instead. I hope it helped! Bye!

Photoshop Tutorial: Steal the Color & Tone of an Image with Match Color  -HD-

Photoshop Tutorial: Steal the Color & Tone of an Image with Match Color -HD-


Hello and welcome back to another Photoshop
tutorial. Today I’m going to be showing you how you
can steal the color and tone of one image, and use it on another. So here I have two images that have a drastically
different color tone and feel. So what if we wanted this first image of this
path to look a lot more like the color and tone of the second image of the barn? Now your initial thought might be to spend
a decent chunk of time with a few different adjustment layers, or you could go ahead and
start by trying out the match color adjustment, which is what we’re going to be doing today. So I’m just going to flip back over to the
first image here, and then go up to “Image”, down to “Adjustments”, and then down to “Match
Color.” Now the first thing that we’re going to look
at in this dialog box is this option called “Source” down here under “Image Statistics.” Now this is where you’re actually going to
select your second image that you want to steal the color and tone from. So we’re going to select that image, and mine
is going to be that bottom image right here, another file that’s open. And you’ll immediately see that it pulls up
the picture here and starts to apply the effect to your image. Now some images will look good right off the
bat. This one is not one of those images, so we’re
going to need to use some of these image options to really refine this effect. So with these effects we have luminance here,
and luminance is going to control the perceived brightness of the image. The color intensity is going to control the
vibrance. And the fade is going to control how the color
is faded from the new image we brought over of the barn onto the original image of the
path. Now with all of these image options, when
we adjust these we’re actually adjusting the properties of the new image since we selected
a source. If we hadn’t selected a source, then these
image options would then apply to our old original image of the path, but since we do
have a source, then they’re going to apply to how the color is brought over and blended
from the image of the barn. So, lastly we have this “Neutralize” checkbox,
and this is going to neutralize the main color that is being cast by the selected photo,
which is the barn. So it’s going to neutralize any kind of major
color that’s being cast over that photo. So I’m just going to go ahead and set some
of these. So I’m just going to put this one at about
125. I’m going to put the color intensity at about
70, and I’m going to put the fade at about 45, and then I’m to go ahead and check the
neutralize color box. So if we then go up to the preview we can
see how this change has taken effect on our image. So you can see the before and after, and that’s
a pretty drastic change. So if we go ahead and click “ok” we can flip
between these images after its gone ahead and taken effect. And you can see that these images now seem
like they fit a lot better into the same kind of feel. It seems like they have the same tone to them,
and a lot of the same colors have been matched from the original image. So this is a great tool for stealing the tone
of an image. It’s not always going to be perfect, but you
can refine it and even use it as a huge head start before going ahead and diving into other
adjustment layers. So that’s my time, but as always, if you enjoyed
this tutorial, be sure to subscribe, rate, and comment for more.
