GIMP 2.6 for Photographers is a beginner's guide to the only open source image editing tool that provides a low-cost alternative to expensive programs such as Photoshop. Topics include the basics of image editing and simple adjustments, as well as advanced techniques using layers and masks, stitching panoramic images, and preparing high-quality black and white images. The most important editing functions are presented in individual, easy-to-follow workshops.

GIMP 2.6 for Photographers has evolved from classroom materials that the author developed and taught in courses and workshops on image editing with the GIMP.


About the Author

Klaus Goelker is an architect and photographer who lives and works in Munich, Germany. He also teaches courses on image editing at a local art school. He chose GIMP to teach this class because it was free and yet powerful enough to do serious photographic image editing.

Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base



Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base
Author(s): Annie Jacobsen
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Date : May 17, 2011
Pages : 622
Format : PDF
Language : English
ISBN-10 : 0316132942
ISBN-13 : 978-0316132947
Size : 9.38 MB


Description:

Area 51

It is the most famous military installation in the world. And it doesn't exist. Located a mere seventy-five miles outside of Las Vegas in Nevada's desert, the base has never been acknowledged by the U.S. government-but Area 51 has captivated imaginations for decades.

Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing itself was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

Annie Jacobsen had exclusive access to nineteen men who served the base proudly and secretly for decades and are now aged 75-92, and unprecedented access to fifty-five additional military and intelligence personnel, scientists, pilots, and engineers linked to the secret base, thirty-two of whom lived and worked there for extended periods. In Area 51, Jacobsen shows us what has really gone on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear weapons to building super-secret, supersonic jets to pursuing the War on Terror.

This is the first eBook based on interviews with eye witnesses to Area 51 history, which makes it the seminal work on the subject. Filled with formerly classified information that has never been accurately decoded for the public, Area 51 weaves the mysterious activities of the top-secret base into a gripping narrative, showing that facts are often more fantastic than fiction, especially when the distinction is almost impossible to make.


About the Author

Annie Jacobsen is a contributing editor at the Los Angeles Times Magazine and an investigative reporter whose work has also appeared in The National Review and The Dallas Morning News. Her two-part series The Road to Area 51 was one of the most read in the Los Angeles Times Magazine. A graduate of Princeton University, she lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons.

#1 New York Times bestseller Nicholas Sparks turns his unrivaled talents to a new tale about love found and lost, and the choices we hope we'll never have to make.

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life - boating, swimming , and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies - he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage and family, THE CHOICE ultimately confronts us with the most heartwrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?


About the Author

This is Nicholas Sparks's 13th book. He lives in North Carolina with his wife and five children.

Description:
On this CD set, acknowledged world leaders Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Deepak Chopra, M.D. tell you how to manifest anything you desire, if you really, really, really, really want it!

Dr. Dyer, bestselling author of Manifest Your Destiny and many other eBooks teaches you how to start getting your heart’s desire by first, becoming a self-actualized person; second, being independent of other people’s opinions; third, being detached from outcomes; and fourth, being free of any investment to have power or control over other people. Then you must banish all doubt from your mind, and know that you can attract what you want into your life.

Through manifesting with the following four steps, Dr. Dyer teaches you how to reduce the time it takes from when you decide what you really, really, really, really want in your mind and when it shows up in physical form:

1. Wish - for what you want to create.
2. Desire - a willingness to ask for what you want, and then you shall receive it.
3. Will or intention - you must have a hardened will and intend that you will get what you want.
4. Passion - you must be passionate about what you want.
Dr. Dyer ends by saying, “What you think about expands, so think about what you want, not about what you don’t want!”


About the Author

He has written numerous bestselling books, including 10 Secrets to Success and Inner Peace which has sold approx. 63,000 in less than a year; A Promise Is a Promise which sold approx. 70,000 copies; the audio version of How to Get What You Really, Really, Really, Really Want which sold approx. 77,000 copies; has created a number of audios and videos; and has appeared on thousands of television and radio programs, including The Today Show, The Tonight Show, and Oprah.

Deepak Chopra, M.D., is Chief Executive Officer of The Chopra Center at La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California. A bestselling author, he was cited by Time magazine as one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the 20th century.
