    2. Molting of the insect cuticle

    The molting process begins when cuticular epidermal cells are stimulated by exposure to 20-hydroxyecdysone – the insect molting hormone. The hormone enters the epidermal cells where it stimulates genes related to molting and the formation of new cuticle. The activated epidermal cells undergo mitosis or grow by cellular enlargement. This is the period of growth to form a new, larger cuticle for the next instar. The existing structural cuticle separates from the epidermal cells. This is termed apolysis. The resulting ecdysial space between the endocuticle and the epidermal cells is filled with a gel that contains inactive chitinase and protease enzymes. A new outer epicuticle layer of cuticulin is secreted.…

    Hi there, this is Unmesh and today I’m going to share with you how to use Dodging & Burning to retouch skin in Photoshop. This is one of the most commercially used techniques used only by high end professionals. And there’s a reason for it. First of all, it takes a lot of time. Secondly, it takes a lot of practice. However, the kind of results it creates is absolutely worth it. Because when we are dodging and burning, we are simply brightening and darkening and doing nothing else and therefore, the skin texture does not get affected at all. However, since this is all manual, and it’s just like…
