It’s Denise’s b-day, and with the help of Al (he hinted, she liked coffee, chocolate, and well… tiramisu) this was created. Layers of soft cakey lady fingers were soaked with rich coffee, layered with sweetened creamy mascarpone and whipped eggs. The middle layer is covered with a blanket of shaved dark chocolate, the top layer is dusted with cocoa and left to sit until ready to serve. (Recipe inspired by Chubby Hubby’s one from The Silver Spoon).

Thank you Taku for guiding me through Photoshop for the collage 😉

I am not able to make a graph by importing the data from xls. Can any one help me to import this data in illustrator. Thanks in advance.

Answer by iDesign71
You should be able to copy the data (cell by cell) from Excel into Illustrator’s graph window to recreate the graph or alternatively you can select the graph image in Excel and copy and paste that to Illustrator, then adjust the colours, strokes, fonts etc.

Q&A: How to add an italics effect to text in adobe illustrator CS4?

Question by Gozza: How to add an italics effect to text in adobe illustrator CS4?
When you enter text in microsft word and you want to make it italic then you highlight it and press the italics button. How to I make my text d the same thing in Adobe Illustrator CS4?

Best answer:

Answer by iDesign71
Illustrator (and the rest of the Adobe suite) do not support these ‘faux’ fonts. This is due to the fact that in postscript output only proper fonts and their installed typefaces are supported and the Adobe suite is geared towards this.

There are two options to make your text italic: either select it in the Type Style box – likely that currently says Roman, click on the drop down arrow and select Italic if it is available.

If the italic style is not available for your font, there is an alternative: in the Transform palette enter a value of between 12° and 15° in the Shear box. This will slant text and make it look as if it’s italic.

How long does it take to shoot a typical short film?

Question by Everly: How long does it take to shoot a typical short film?
I am auditioning for a short film Sat. and I’ve never done film before. If I were to get the part, how long does it usually take to film? What should I expect? Can I email the producer (with whom I set up the audition) and ask him what the production schedule is like or would that be a faux pas?

Best answer:

Answer by kyle
Well it still varies
I’ve edited some thats been done in less than a week
but they have 15+ hr days

so depends all on the film… it gets done when it gets done

Well when i edit i go through at least 100 of film for a short movie
