Photoshop Tutorial: Create a stylish modern cyborg

The traditional cyborg, a mix of human and machine, has the ability to unsettle viewers in a way that robots or other synthetic humanoids can’t possibly match.

Step 9 Add a layer on top and fill it with black. Change its blending mode to Screen. With the Brush tool (B), select a very soft brush and red for the colour, then paint over the eyes to create a red glow effect.

Step 10 Make the ‘Face’ layer visible once more, and go to Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow. On this tab and the Bevel and Emboss one, modify the settings to match those above. Please note that the blending mode colour for the drop shadow is a dark brown.

Step 11 Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Photo Filter. Use an orange for the color with 20% Density.

Step 12 Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue and Saturation. Reduce the Saturation to -50. Next, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Gradient Map. Use black and white for the colour and a blending mode of Soft Light.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
