Design Folder?

      The previous class was your last dedicated class period to work on your Design Folder. If you could print it out and turn it in, that’d be super. We’ll talk about them some as we move through this unit, talking about areas that you guys collectively did well on, and other areas that may have been weaker.

Quiz Grade?

      Check Skyward. Not what you were hoping for? You can take a new quiz if you’d like to replace the score. Once again, open notes only. Oh, and some questions may differ.

How do we Represent Ourselves?

For this six weeks, we’ll be primarily using Photoshop. In the new version of Photoshop CS6, Video has been added to its capabilities (albeit it was already available in previous versions if you had the extended version). They also made a lot of upgrades to what you can do with video in PS. Photoshop, most of the time, however is not used for video, and what you can do with it has a very broad range of applications.
