## Using the Basic Tools

In the following exercise, you create an image that has the entire background covered in a light brown. Then you selectively add a few details to it.

The latest version of Photoshop Elements, Photoshop CS6, has been available since October 2013.

This page lists the features of Photoshop Elements. If the feature you’re looking for isn’t on this list, you can click the See more… link to see where it is on Adobe’s site.

Creating graphics

Some of Photoshop Elements’ special features are described in the following sections.

Effects

A variety of effects, such as add lens blur, emboss, grunge, and more, can be applied to images, and then composited over other layers.

Layer effects

In addition to layer effects such as fill, stroke, drop shadow, and the like, Photoshop Elements features special layer effects that are described below.

Drop shadows can be easily added to selected layers to make them look more realistic, while the blur of the shadow can be varied.

Blur

The average radius (pixels) of blur can be adjusted, and images can be soft focused to produce soft edges.

Opacity

Image opacity can be adjusted to produce a soft, blurred look.

You can adjust the shape of highlights and shadows on a layer and then “mask” the rest of the layer to select only the highlights or shadows on the layer.

Inverting

B&W and color images can be inverted and then, optionally, the invert feature can be applied only to the highlights or shadows on the layer.

Custom shapes

Dots and lines can be drawn with a custom pattern overlay and saved as a shape layer.

Backgrounds and effects

Photoshop Elements has a number of backgrounds that can be applied to a selected layer and then “masked” to apply to the highlights or shadows of a layer.

Contrast

The dynamic range of the tonal values can be adjusted to make a high-contrast image more realistic.

Sharpening

Layers can be sharpened, softened, or left unsharpened. The degree of sharpness can be adjusted.

Filters

The filters feature in Photoshop Elements has been slightly revised and is described in the following sections.

Effects

Special effects can be applied to an image or group of layers.

Gradients may be applied to selected layers to create a gradient, such as a fading color or

1. Field of the Invention
This invention relates to security print imaging systems and, in particular, to such systems wherein the print is electronically stored in a data base and electronically printed upon demand.
2. Description of Related Art
In many industries, it is often desirable to display information which has a useful or important bearing on the ongoing operation of the company or the product manufactured by the company. One example of such a situation is a bakery. When baking an entire order of products, it is beneficial for an individual to be able to verify that the order has been filled. Consequently, a printer can be installed to print a sheet of paper that includes a representation of the order and information that verifies the total order and the individual items that constitute the order. Such printed pieces of paper are commonly referred to as proof sheets. By virtue of the printing on the proof sheet, the order can be verified prior to final assembly of the order into packaging and delivery to the customer. The customer, in turn, can verify that the order is correct and can begin to prepare an order for delivery to the delivery service.
In the custom food service industry, proofing for both food product and product assembly, such as a case-load proof, is conventionally accomplished with a process that creates a printed image, usually in the form of a proof sheet. The food or product provider submits details to a production-based printer who prints the proof sheet. These proofs are needed to verify total order quantity, make sure the correct products are being delivered, and to verify the assembly of the order. The finalization of the order, at the point of sale, is through a hand-to-eye verification process that includes counting the order against a delivery ticket, verifying the number and size of the orders on delivery, and counting the package and verifying the contents against the delivery ticket.
Even with the advent of mobile terminals that provide many services with cellular technology, most businesses are still paper-based because of the vast expense involved with the use of digital technology. Generally, inkjet printers are used to produce proof sheets since they are inexpensive, tend to produce high quality output, and produce output in a comparatively fast manner.
Of course, there are inherent risks involved in using any printer to create a proof sheet. Printer tampering and security are of increasing concern as the benefits of using paperless technology have become widely publicized. Unfortunately, any individual who has access to the printer can easily change or manipulate the proof sheet prior to its official issuance. Typically,

Q:

Meaning of parameter $N$ in the proof of Weyl’s law for the Laplace operator on torus?

On page 9 of this dissertation

the author is trying to prove the Weyl’s law for the Laplace operator on a torus. He gives a nice example of the Dirichlet eigenfunction on a rectangular box with small sizes $k_j$ of sides of the box (or equivalently a torus of small size). The author then goes on to prove Weyl’s law. And part of the proof is as follows:
Let $\lambda_{j}^{N}$ be the $j$-th Dirichlet eigenvalue for the cube $Q_{N}$(we can think that the cube $Q_{N}$ is the rectangular box of side length $2N$). Then
$\lambda_{j}^{N} = (N/2)^{2} + \lambda_{j}$
where $\lambda_{j}$ is the eigenvalue for the unit torus $T$.
I am not sure why we need to add $N^{2}$ to $\lambda_{j}$. Is there a simple explanation for this?

A:

The normalization that’s done in the proof you’re looking at is using the same boxes on different tori, specifically choosing $N=1$. If you were instead to try using a rectangular box with the side lengths $1$ and $\epsilon$ instead, you should find that you need to scale by a factor of $\epsilon^{2}$. Why is this the case?
