Subject: Japanese

Question:

I can't find the word "Anxiety Disorder" in the dictionary nor on my dictionary app! How can I find out difficult words like this without knowing a Japanese person?

Answer:

"Anxiety Disorder" in Japanese is 不安障害. The way you can find words that are not in traditional dictionaries or apps is to use a platform made for Japanese people to search English words. These have a much broader range of vocabulary. My recommendation is Weblio. It is operated by the biggest English Teaching Resource company in Japan and has many words and sentences in Japanese that can help you as a Japanese learner for word association as well.

Answer:

"Beating around the bush" is a phrase used to express frustration. It means that a person is not being honest or saying what they mean directly. Example sentence: "Stop beating around the bush, please tell me what you think."

Answer:

There are various ways to isolate the subject in Photoshop and achieve the same result. The best way is to start with the Quick Selection Tool. Get the basic shape of your person or object, don't stress too much if it isn't perfect. Next click "Select and Mask" and it will bring up a menu to the side. In view mode select "High Quality Preview" to be able to see your selection. Under "Edge Detection", select "Smart Radius' and "Decontaminate Colors". From there, gently mess with the settings until you're satisfied with your selection. If there's some fly away hairs you're battling with, you can also use the "Refine Edge Brush" tool to feather it out and preserve the shape of your hair. Once you're satisfied with your selection, click OK and there you will have a near perfect isolated version of yourself on a transparent BG! From there you can add any background you like.
