From the take a breather files. Try it!

This is really cool. The second one is amazing so please read all the way though..


Count every 'F
' in the following text:



6 -- no joke.
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.

The reasoning behind is further down.
The brain cannot process 'OF.'

Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!
Anyone who counts all 6 'F's' on the first go is a genius.
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

6 photo repairs before grading.

6 photo repairs before grading.  Keep the originals for comparison.

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Grading your work

I want you to do a total of 6 photo repairs.  Keep all of them. 

You need to enlarge them on the screen to do a good job.  You are replacing pixels and it works very well if you enlarge your photo and do careful work.  Make sure you have replace selected on the top left for mode.  I would rather you take time and do it right than rush through it and have it look amateurish.

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

The correct answer is...

A lesson for all of my classes. 

Please do your own research and investigation into things you hear or facts you are given.  Information can easily be skewed to reflect the way someone wants the world to be or the way they wished it would be.  Finding the truth is not easy and with the internet, anyone one can say anything and have it instantly published as "the truth."  Use multiple sources that do not have an agenda they are promoting.  Where are you getting your information?  Is the site, book or person unbiased?  What is the reputation of the source?  Does the source have an agenda?  Always, Consider your source. And yes, that includes me!  I have been wrong in the past and I will be wrong in the future.  If I teach you something that you believe to be incorrect, then prove me wrong.  Shoot, I'll give you a couple of bonus points for doing the research.  

Link to photo's

Healing brush hint.  Mode needs to be selected to replace.

Here is a link of old damaged photo's

Monday, November 7, 2011

Check off assignment for max points at beginning of class

ID. Okay, we are just getting started on In Design. To clarify, everyone needs to take their best work or all of your work (that is up to you) and get it into ID. ID is a book making program from Adobe. You can drag PDF files right into a new doc. You can create books and e-books. We are figuring this one out together so be patient. The end result will be you work in a portfolio.
