In school, we learn about geniuses and their ideas, but how did they get those ideas? What are the mental processes, attitudes, work habits, behaviors, and beliefs that enable creative geniuses to view the same things as the rest of us, yet see something different?

Soms wil je een voorwerp uit een foto of afbeelding losmaken van de achtergrond, bijvoorbeeld voor je webwinkel. Als je nu geen Photoshop tot je beschikking hebt, is Background Burner een leuk en bruikbaar alternatief.

 

Selecteer of sleep een afbeelding naar het scherm en laat het programma zijn werk doen. Je kunt daarna de meest geschikte uitzoeken en eventueel nog bijwerken en een andere achtergrond kiezen.

Awesome site! robust tools! These graphic outlines provide  practice in two important skills for students with language or organizational challenges. First the organizers provide an external structured process and product for students with a need to break complex composition and communication tasks down into smaller steps. Second--as students use these outlines, they become 'internalized' --a cognitive tool equipping them with a ready made schema that increases comprehension of what they hear and read. --Lou
