Windows Server 2008/SQL Server 2008 End of Support: Don’t Repeat the Mistakes of the Past

Posted on 4/17/19 9:23 AM by Get Schooled in SQL, in SQL Server

End of extended support (EoS) is a significant event in the life of any Microsoft Product. The upside is all the new features to implement and support. If we’ve learned anything from EoS for other products, its that the only downside comes when we wait too long to begin preparing for the migration to the new, current platform. Suddenly there are no more security updates and we become the prime target for hackers. Become your company’s hero and be the one who convinces them to prepare early and migrate in a timely and orderly fashion.

Zoom in and out while painting and never skip a beat! (Photoshop CS5/CS6/CC)

Posted on 2/5/19 11:00 AM by Get Schooled in photoshop, in Adobe Photoshop

Whether you’re painting or masking with the Brush tool, one thing holds true: You often need to zoom way in for precision pixel control, but then zoom back out to get a big-picture preview. But switching between the Brush and Zoom tools so frequently will disrupt your painting groove. Not to worry. You can swap tools and remain efficient with a simple keyboard combination.

First, you need to enable Scrubby Zoom: Choose the Zoom tool and select Scrubby Zoom on the Tool Options bar. Now, select the Brush tool and get painting. To zoom in while using the Brush tool, press and hold [command][Space Bar] ([Ctrl][Space Bar] in Windows) to temporarily switch to the Zoom tool. Drag to the right to zoom in or to the left to zoom out. Release the keys to resume using the Brush tool.
