Layer Masks How To Remove Objects From The Background


Layer Masks: How To Remove Objects From The Background by Hans Glueckert
English | 2021 | ISBN: N/A | ASIN: B09LXWC2ZP | 57 pages | EPUB | 0.63 Mb
Layer masking is a reversible way to hide part of a layer. This gives you more editing flexibility than permanently erasing or deleting part of a layer. Layer masking is useful for making image composites, cutting out objects for use in other documents, and limiting edits to part of a layer. It is one of the best tools for removing objects from their background in a way that doesn’t destroy your photo.

C++20 for Programmers An Objects-Natural Approach (Deitel Developer Series), 3rd Edition


English | 2022 | ISBN: 0136905692 | 960 pages | True EPUB | 116.43 MB
The professional programmer’s DeitelĀ® guide to C++20
" C++20 for Programmers builds up an intuition for modern C++ that every programmer should have in the current software engineering ecosystem. The unique and brilliant ordering in which the Deitels present the material jibes much more naturally with the demands of modern, production-grade programming environments. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who needs to get up to speed on C++, particularly in professional programming environments where the idioms and patterns of modern C++ can be indecipherable without the carefully crafted guidance that this book provides."

Objects as Actors charts a new approach to Greek tragedy based on an obvious, yet often overlooked, fact: Greek tragedy was meant to be performed.

Art and Objects


Graham Harman, "Art and Objects"
English | 2019 | ISBN: 1509512675, 1509512683 | PDF | pages: 217 | 1.4 mb
In this book, the founder of object-oriented ontology develops his view that aesthetics is the central discipline of philosophy. Whereas science must attempt to grasp an object in terms of its observable qualities, philosophy and art cannot proceed in this way because they don’t have direct access to their objects. Hence philosophy shares the same fate as art in being compelled to communicate indirectly, allusively, or elliptically, rather than in the clear propositional terms that are often taken – wrongly – to be the sole stuff of genuine philosophy.
