Gmail Tutorial – Creating Email Responders in Gmail

Gmail allows you to create auto email responders. These responders are great for people who are going on vacation or won’t be able to access their computer for a while. These auto responders are easy to create and only take a minute. In this tutorial, I will show you how to create auto email responders in Gmail. To begin, you will need to login to your Gmail account.

Open Your Responder Settings Page in Gmail

You will need to open your settings page for the responder. To do that, you will need to click the Settings link at the top of your page. When the settings page loads, click the General tab. You will then be on the page where you can create your auto responder.

Creating Your Auto Responder in Gmail

You will need to scroll down near the bottom of the page you are on. Look for the Vacation Responder section. Once you find that section, you will be at the right place. In this section, you will need to turn the vacation responder on. To do this, tick the Vacation Responder On field. Next, you will need to type a subject in the Subject field. Then type a message in the message field. You can explain why you are away from your computer and when you will be back, or you can type that you are simply away. This part is completely up to you.

If you want the auto responder to only be sent to people who are in your contacts, you can check that box below the message field. This means, anyone who contacts you that are not in your contacts, will not receive this message. This is probably a good option because you do not want any and everyone knowing you are away from home. Again, this is totally up to you.

Now you will need to save your changes to apply the new responder. To do this, you will need to scroll to the bottom of your page and click the Save Changes button. The auto email responder will now be in effect and will be sent to anyone who emails you.


How to Turn the Auto Responder Off in Gmail

When you are ready, you can turn the email responder off. Click the Settings link at the top of your Gmail account. Then click the General tab. Scroll down to the Vacation Responder section. Tick the field to turn the vacation responder off. Then scroll to the bottom of your page and click Save Changes. Then auto responder will then be turned off.

Photoshop Tutorial: How to Create Longer Nails

photoshop Longer Nails

In this Adobe Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to make finger nails longer. This is a fun and easy tutorial for everyone from beginner to expert users. In addition, many professional photo editors use this technique when working on editorial photographs for ads in magazines, and now you can learn this technique too!
Before you start you need to find an image of hands. Obviously, this works best if they are feminine hands, but you can choose whatever you like. If you personally do not have a picture of hands, there are tons of free photo and image sites online.

Step 1) When you have selected the image you want to work with, open the document up in Adobe Photoshop as its own canvas. Make sure the document is saved and the canvas is flattened. (Layer > Flatten Image).

Step 2) Select the Pen Tool and draw a square around the nail. This will help get a good shape to form the new nail. Try your best to make it even as possible. It may take a few times to get it right. If you mess up and want to go back press Crtl+Z+Alt. This will take you back a step.

Step 3) After you have created the shape, click on the layer called Shape 1 keeping the Ctrl button on the keyboard pressed. This way when you select the outline, you can cancel the layer and choose the image layer instead.

Step 4) Now that the outline is done, it needs to be filled. Use the Clone Stamp Tool. Set the sampling area by putting the pointer on the actual nail and Alt-clicking your pointer.

Step 5) Drag the inner area to the outline to get a longer effect. Repeat this process until the whole area is evenly filled throughout the inside of the outline. Keep in mind you can always zoom in and out to check if things are even, including the tone, coloring, and sharpness.

Step 6) Once you are done, press Ctrl+D to deselect the outline. Now that the area is no longer selected you will see there are imperfections on the new nail. To fix this, select the Blur Tool on the vertical menu bar.

Step 7) Select the appropriate size of the Blur Tool brush. Go over the nail several times to blend the tones better together.

Step 8) This is the basic concept of making nails longer. Since you have only done one nail, you will have to the rest of the nails in the exact same way.

Once you have completed those steps, you are done and have a whole new image!
