- Research activity
- Review the information regarding the lab scanners: Epson and Umax.
- Towards the end of both scanner pages you will also find color theory and file type summaries.
- Find examples (either online, on the textbook's CD, or from your previous work) of the image file formats described on p. 62 of the textbook.
- Not every image you may find was saved appropriately. Select only files that demonstrate the features of each format, and be prepared to explain why you would not save them in another format.
- Don't forget to put the picture files you collect for this activity in a safe place to store them until the next session.
- Collect up to 2 points during the next class presentation.
- Lab activity
- Select a layout (ad or article) from one of the magazines in the lab
- Pick an item you believe needs a remake, as detailed on p.78 of the textbook.
- Scan the item you selected at screen resolution, so you can show it to the class during the next presentation.
- Take your scanned file home so you can work on your home activity. If you don't have a way to look at your image file at home, print it before you leave.
- Review the information in the PowerPoint presentations on the textbook's CD. There is no need to install the PowerPoint viewer, since the full program is already available on the lab computers.
- Both presentations are in the Goodies/Chapter 01/Exercises/PowerPoint folder. In the Chapter 1 PPT subfolder you will find overviews of the Operating Systems, and in the Chapter 2 PPT subfolder is design information you will find useful for the home activity.
- Home activity
- Read the second part of chapter 2 (pp. 61-70), and the review chapter for unit I (pp. 71-78 of the textbook).
- Look over the ad or article from your lab activity. Following the criteria on page 78 of the textbook (and in the Powerpoint slides regarding design), make a list of needed improvements.
- Earn an additional 3 points during your next presentation for the thoroughness of your design makeover.
- Find and bring to class two pictures you would like to work on in Photoshop, one to be used as the foreground, the other one as the background. You will scan them during the next lab session.
