Laser drawing illstration

I learned today that the names of the tools and where they are hidden in each program differ, but overall, drawing software functions pretty similarly. Raster and vector are the two different types of digital image files. Each is unique based on how it was made. To use the two types effectively in design, one must be aware of the differences between the two. Each type has advantages and disadvantages for different applications. Lastly, I learned that there is a benefit to creating a file in external design software, saving it as a vector file, and then importing that vector file into the Glowforge interface. Parts of the design can be much more easily aligned first, and their relationships will always be the same.

Adobe illustration

I learned that Adobe Illustrator could be used to create various digital and printed images, including cartoons, charts, diagrams, graphs, logos, and illustrations. In Illustrator, a user can import a photo and use it as a reference to trace an object in the image. Illustrator's ability to wrap text around a curve is particularly useful for logo designers. Illustrator is used to creating icons for use in apps and websites as well as mockups, which show how a finished website will appear. Lastly, I learned that There are differences between using Illustrator on a Mac and a Windows computer aside from the software itself. The keyboard layout varies a little bit; for instance, macOS refers to the Windows Control key as the Command key and the Windows Alt key as the macOS Option key.

Today I learned about idesign, adobe, and the importance of understanding computers.

Today I learned about design, adobe, and the importance of understanding computers when designing items on a laptop computer. Many people use computers for illustration and design. You can create mini cartoons, games, and even business proposals. Smaller websites such as IceCube help figure out the design you want to portray and make it come to life. Adobe illustration is primarily used to modify vector graphics and is used to create vector images by both artists and graphic designers. Lastly, A user can import a photograph into Illustrator and use it as a guide to trace an object in the photograph. Whether you want to create a simple icon or a complex illustration, the more techniques and shortcuts you know, the faster Adobe will be.

Today I learned about Blender

On this topic, I am learning about 3D printing and how to create 3d objects using different apps. Yesterday we examined how to use the app, Tinker. That app is very easy to use so it s beginner friendly. In addition, it is free. However, there are different packages you can choose from to help change or create any product. The app I learned about today, Blender is just like the Tinker app, but more. With Blender, it is better for creating more complex shapes and objects like curvy shapes. In addition, it is better for creating games and creative art. Whereas, Tinker is more for everyday use and to create easier objects. Overall, both are good for those getting into creating and using 3d objects.

Today I learned about 3d printing and product planning

Three-dimensional (3D) printing is an additive manufacturing process that produces a physical object from a digital design. The procedure involves laying down thin layers of material, such as liquid or powdered plastic, metal, or cement, and then fusing the layers together. 3D printing techniques include stereolithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS), and fused deposition modeling (FDM). 3D printing is difficult, particularly for beginners. It is difficult to master because it requires creativity, math, and computer-aided design (CAD) skills. However, 3D printing becomes easier once you have the necessary hardware and software, modeling skills, and an understanding of how this technology works.

Today- I learned about comodities

I am not going to lie, this section on stocks and trading was a little challenging for me as I had no clue what the articles and videos were explaining most of the time. However, here is some of the information that I learned. A commodity is a raw material or agricultural product that can be bought or sold. There are three types of commodity items; energy, metal, and agriculture. To make money by buying a commodity, you buy futures through a brokerage that has access to an index. A future is a contract or agreement that states what price you will buy and sell a commodity at on a set date in the future. When it comes to investing in commodities things can get extremely tricking, which is why it is normally recommended for more sophisticated investors. So it is important to consult with a financial aid advisor before you make a finalized financial idea.

Today I learned about trading options

In the video set that I watched, the teachers and those in the video set stated multiple tips on how to read charts, make predictions on stocks, and more. In one of the videos, I learned about the trading strategy called Selling options. This strategy is about selling options. Options are contracts that give the owner the right to buy or sell assets. So when you are selling options, you are selling your right to those assets. With selling options, it can help those gain income because you can get the option premium upfront. Another strategy that I learned about is the long call strategy. This strategy is when you get the right to buy a stock at a striking price. With this strategy, you can make money by buying the stock and keeping it until the stock grows in price. Those are just a few trading strategies that can be used when it comes to the stocks and the stock market.

Today I learned about online trading

This is my blog post for Thursday since it is already past midnight and I forgot to write it before 12.

Today I learned in depth about online trading and the different markets and ways you can online trade. The section that I focused on today was REIT trading. With this trading, it is all about the real estate market and making smart investments in it. In this form of trading, a REIT is a company that owns and operates income-producing real estate. For example, owning a multi-family house and renting one level of it to others. This form of trading is a good investment because it can diversify your financial portfolio and it can increase the returns of your portfolio. However, this type of trading is highly competitive since it is tied closely to the housing market. Overall, just like the other forms of trading, there is a risk when it comes to money and spending large amounts of it. It is important that we conduct heavy research on that investment before we make such a huge risk.

Today I learned about forex

Forex is a type of trading that involves exchanging currency from all over the world at different rates. With this market, it is a fast-moving market as you need to be able to buy or sell your piece when the price and market are right. With forex, you can trade at all times of the day since the market is never closed. In addition, the transaction rates are low; it is a large market as it is a global market, and it is easy for beginners to trade to be a part of. However, the market is a very volatile market and you can take huge risks that can make you lose everything. With forex and any type of trading, you need to study the graphs, numbers, markets, and environment. Never make a decision about your money without researching and making an educated guess on what the right move is. Forex may seem easy and many do believe it is a scam. However, you have to find the best way to invest your money to create multiple streams of income.

Today I learned about various things meaning different things. First I learned about hiring in videos I learned how to hire the best people for the jobs. I learned that many people overlook hiring, but hiring can make or break a good leader with a good business plan. Then I learned about how to pay the people that we hired. These articles each broke down what a bank account was, how to set one up, how to write a check, how to endorse a check, how to chase a check, etc. As someone who already has a bank account the information on checks was extremely interesting. It was interesting because I have never written a check so it was cool to learn how to write and give a check.
