These projects are long and involved. Please save backups as you work, just in case you need to retrace your steps. Periodically do a "save as" to a new version of the file.
You only have two attempts to take each quiz, we suggest you review the quiz before you start the project; it will help you find the answers later.
How to make a ZIP archive on a Mac
Choose your file(s) or folder(s); pull down the File menu and choose the Compress option; the .zip will appear on your Desktop. See this diagram.
Check your ZIP files
Students often make zips that do not contain files; so check your process before you turn in projects. After you create the zip archive, please check it by opening it on your computer to make sure the files reappear and open. Move the zip into a new folder before opening it, so the files do not clutter up your existing work.
What I don't have the fonts?
If you are working on a computer lacking the ATC fonts, feel free to substitute with a similar font.
You can install the fonts provided by ATC. Macintosh users in the lab can activate these fonts with the Linotype Font Explorer application. Select the Font Explorer from the Applications folder. Click on the "ATC fonts" folder to activate the project fonts.
The fonts are available on the CBE Lab server, AVA-Disciplines, in the GRDSN > Against_the_Clock folder.
The files used in the projects are available from the CBE Lab server, AVA-Disciplines, in the GRDSN > Against_the_Clock folder. The first users of the textbooks can download the file from the ATC website. Instructions are on the inside back cover of the book. If you are checking out a book from the library or lab, you probably not be able to use the code on the book, so copy the files off the server.
Adobe Photoshop II, GRDSN 166
In this project I will learn to:
- Patch a photo to remove unwanted elements.
- Replace specific colors in a photo to change the appearance of an object.
- Use adjustment layers to change hue and saturation values for specific objects in a photo.
- Adjust an image's shadows and highlights to correct bad lighting.
- Transform a layer using one-and two-point perspective.
- Warp a layer around irregular, non-flat surfaces.
- Apply lighting effects to unify composite images.
- Use 3D functions to wrap artwork around an object.
HOW TO PROCEED
Read and work through the project in the Against the Clock book.
You will use the sample files from the CD disk in the back of the book. You may find it convenient to copy the files from the CD to your personal storage area.
Complete the exercises for the Advertising Samples.
What to turn in.
Turn in the final files of the ads.
Create a compressed .zip archive of your folder. The zip files are a very safe way to move collections of files over the internet, and they usually reduce the file size.
Use the Macintosh Finder’s File>Compress “filename”, or Windows’ “New>Compressed (zipped) Folder” tools to create a .zip archive of the folder. Remember to save a copy of your work folder onto your personal storage device.
Rename your .zip file to 166-6-My name.zip.
Attach this .zip archive to your Canvas turn-in area for this project.
Take the quiz
Go to the Assignments section in Canvas and take the project quiz. You are allowed to retake the quizzes only twice. You might review and print the quiz before starting the project and locate the answers as you work.
