  2. Very nice photoshop tutorials. Outstanding you’re willing to share your expertise with the rest of the ultrasound education community!

  3. Ben, thanks for sharing your expertise and knowledge so freely. I have been attempting to use your excellent tutorials in Photoshop CC 2014 to create GIFs but am unable to use the crop function for some reason. Any troubleshooting tips? Any other way to crop? Thanks

  4. Hi, I am doing trauma high fidelity simulation with my emergency department staff. I am looking for ultrasound clips I can download on my computer (not youtube…) to show the doctor during the simulation. I mostly miss pleural effusion view, freefluid, normal FAST… things like that. Any idea where I can find such clips easy to start during simulation.. Thank you 🙂

  5. Ben,
    How do you manage to place your UOTW logo within your clips? I think I can manage a roundabout way of doing it with Keynote, but I know there must be a simpler way. I do not have Adobe Photoshop CC.
    thanks!

    1. Mark,

      The easiest way to overlay an image onto your u/s clip is to use the open source program ffmpeg (MacOS, Windows). After installing, open up a terminal window and type in the following commands:

      • cd YOURDIRECTORY
      • ffmpeg -i INFILE.mp4 -i YOURIMAGE.png -filter_complex “[0:v][1:v] overlay=200:60” -pix_fmt yuv420p -an OUTFILE.mp4

      Where you substitute YOURDIRECTORY, YOURIMAGE, and INFILE/OUTFILE for the appropriate values, change 200 and 60 to the X and Y pixel location of your image overlay (left upper corner of image).

      Best regards
      Ben
