Dell™ Vostro™ 15 3558 Series Technical Specification 2015

I have a soft spot for the Dell Vostro range of laptops. It is because I work on one and I do everything on it. From photo editing with Photoshop CC, design work on Sketchup and running my emails on Outlook. I have at times 15 applications running and never had any hiccup with this range of Dell laptops. The Dell Vostro 15 3558 is the latest from dell coming this spring 2015. It is ideal for business, it has a strong casing which to me is crucial when travelling.
You really need something that can handle all the knocks and bruises while travelling and the Dell Vostro range is designed for that. You are not going to get music like the XPS range, but heck, you are here for business. The Dell Vostro 15 3558 (and there are more versions),  is very well specified as can be seen by the table below. Powerfully efficient: Work through your day quickly and conveniently with the latest Intel® Core™ processor.

A boost in multitasking: Increase the performance of graphics-rich applications with up to 2GB1 of discrete graphics that make everything look clearer, from Excel spreadsheets to video editing.

Merrell hiking shoes showing cracks in quality

I have been a supporter of Merrell shoes for quite a long time, actually about 10 years. Their comfort was amazing as well as build quality. My first pair was hiking boots and I wore them until they fell apart, I must admit that the sole wore through before the top started coming apart.  I then bought hiking or trail shoes. I think the style was Merrell Vibram, not sure but that was written on the side of the hiking shoe.  Anyway, who cares, I don't hike or go on trails.  They are mainly used in and around at home. I also don't do any gardening with them by the way.

So all in all I don't have a lot of wear and tear as can be seen on the amount of rubber left on the new pair of Merrell Hiking shoes.

What really disturbed me is how badly the new Merrell Hiking shoes are put together. Put it this way, my old Merrell's had 5 years of walking on them, and there is not much wrong with them other than the backend plastic started to crack. Also my laces are worn out which can…

Adding more color to dull images in Photoshop

There are certain scenes that just lack color and "pop". Your basic family shots with bright coloured clothing is not the biggest problem, it's those seaside shots, or landscape shots with little colour other than brown and green. They are just lifeless, you get a feeling that is not how you saw it when you were there, and anyhow, it looks crap. It is a method that is used by most professionals since they know where and when to use it. So here is a couple of tips when NOT to use this method. Don't use it on bright coloured flower shots.Don't use it where peoples faces are the main feature of the image, such as portraits and group shots.Any image taken late in the evening or early in the morning, be very careful.Any overexposed image or under exposed image can pose a problemDon't use images with a color cast, get the cast our first and then apply color enhancing.Ok, I assume you get the drift.
The best image to use are dull desert landscapes and beach images.  …
