May 20th – DAG 2, 3, 7 – Final Exam Overview

Today if you took pictures Wednesday you will go back and take them again today. By the end of class today everyone should have had two opportunities to go out and take photos.

A few points of note:

  • If pictures you took did NOT go together. Then delete the photos.
  • Once you have your PhotoMerge image created and saved as PSD file, then delete the photos used to create it.
  • Waiting to take photos at home? Good. Make sure your title for the page design is completed.

Final Exam points:

  • 1 Photomerge image will be required.
  • If the Photomerge image is from the EHS campus the most you can make on the final is an 80.
  • When using a camera it must be at least 6-8 megapixels. Cell phone cameras will not work unless taken using a smart phone such as a iPhone, Android, or Windows mobile phone.
  • The photos used to make the Photomerge will be part of your Final Exam project so DO NOT delete the photos.
  • You will design on a 11×17 page for the Photomerge image. This does not mean that your design must take up the entire page.
  • Instructions will be posted for the Final Exam at SmallwoodTech.com on Tuesday, May 24th.

Have a Great Weekend!
