Peak District: Hope Valley





Between the 16Th - 18Th August 201,  I went  camping in Peak district with some friends.
I am not a hard core hiker, but love exploring the UK countryside's whenever I have the time and money. 
So, instead of buying a hiking map for  £14.99 and maybe never using it again, I found a couple of good websites which give you loads of routs, such as:


Mam Tor and the Great Ridge

Lithuania and Latvia





 













 I have just come back from a wonderful trip in the Baltic Seas, where I've visited Lithuania's capital : Vilnius and in Latvia: Riga
Incredible fairy land picturesque scenes to be visited, as for example Trakkai or Vilnius.

How to import PSD files into AE


Import prep Photoshop files into AE

So when working in  Motion or Video the DPI value has no importance ( i.e: 72 or 300 dpi is the same), what will really affect your artwork is the  PIXEL DIMENSION of your source file.

The pixels needs to be be enough or event bigger then the AE screen dimension your working on.

i.e: Your AE comp is 1280 x 720, then make sure your photoshop file is the same.

If you plan to have a zoom for instance, then make sure the files in bigger in photoshop. i.e: 1480x 920 for example. 

However do not make your photoshop files TOO BIG as it will suckup all your AE memory.
