A reminder to be blogging examples of all that you have done already in class. If you didn’t turn in your Jack and Jill print out today, drop it by my office before Friday.
On Friday, have your printout of your image retouch assignment. You are trying to make the photo look like new without any damage. I showed you the dodge and burn tool today to effect the lightness or darkness of an area of pixels. That might help with some of damage in the image. A lot of it will be fixed with the Clone stamp tool.
Early next week is an couple of Illustrator assignments – Monday have your Illustrator, Jack and Jill rebuild done and printed to turn in. Save a .tif or .jpg of the Photoshop Jack and Jill and open, import/place the .tif or .jpg into Illustrator as a template (click on the layer and designate it as a template). Then you can begin the vector rebuild of the Jack and Jill story you made in Photoshop.
On Wednesday you should have your Russian River logo rebuild done. Try to match the .jpg as closely as possible. Again, open or import/place the .jpg into Illustrator as a template and rebuild it with the vector tools. Have it printed by the start of class to turn in.
No deadline yet on the InDesign Kirksville Arts Association copy assignment. You are importing/placing the text, creating auto-flow text boxes and using the Paragraph and Character style sheets to copy-set the text. Ask any questions about this on Friday. I did place on the Google Drive folder an Illustrator file of the KAA logo that you can open up and save as an .eps and place in the document too. Set up a column grid on an 8.5 x 14″ document and set the copy.
I think that’s it. These are skill-building assignments. Make sure you are watching the Lynda.com tutorials so this stuff I’m showing you isn’t completely foreign to you. The assignments will soon become more and more complex, so get up to speed with the fundamental tools. See you on Friday.
