Image Editing with Adobe Photoshop

Posted on Apr 19, 2015 by sofia katsikadi Last Activity on Apr 19, 2015

This is my lesson plan for Image Editing with Adobe Photoshop It's a 3hour x 10session course that includes Image Theory, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Photoshop and Camera Raw. This course is for Photographers, Image Editors, Retouchers, Graphic Designers and creative amateurs.In the actual course I include an interactive presentation with supportive images, additional study material and exercise files. We begin with the presentation and then we continue in the lab where I can show the techniques in Photoshop and then they can do the same in the lab's computers. I believe it's a very effective course and I saw in practise that the students loved it, because it may seem difficult at first but in the lab you can have deeper understanding, have really fun editing and become really creative.

9 Squares

Posted on Apr 16, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Apr 16, 2015

An international collaboration of 9 different designer/animators. Each designer creates an abstract, 350px, 3 second animated square to make up a single GIF loop, from a 4-colour palette. Just for fun. Twice a month. Probably. I'm so stealing this for a classroom project. Lots of room to modify the parameters, too.

How To Create Grayscale Images in Lightroom 5

Posted on Apr 3, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Apr 3, 2015

It should come as no surprise that a lot of the color correction duties usually handled by Photoshop are now being handled by Adobe Lightroom 5. One of the main reasons behind this is the tools in Lightroom are seen as being a lot more robust than their Photoshop counterparts. As well, Lightroom natively manages Camera Raw images without the use of a plug in.

How To Color Correct Images In Photoshop Using Camera Raw

Posted on Apr 3, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Apr 3, 2015

This has happened to all of us. You open an image in Photoshop and exclaim: “Oh no! The image is underexposed” or “The image is overexposed! Now what?” The answer, if you use Photoshop for color correction, is to not use Adjustment Layers or the Adjustments menu – Image>Adjustments . It is to use the Camera Raw Filter. In this “How To” we are going to correct an underexposed image using a couple of features in Photoshop’s Filter Menu: Create a Smart Filter, Add Lens Correction and then correct the color using the Camera Raw filter.

 Adobe’s new app –PaintCan- allows you to convert photos into paintings and how that happens is just too much fun: You finger paint. Before we get started, you need to know this app is an iOS-only app that is currently in beta and is available in North America.You can download it here. In this “How To” we are going to turn the photo of a kid’s water park in Paris into a water colour. Along the way we will reacquaint ourselves with our inner child as we use our fingers to do the conversion.

Creativity in Education is no longer an option, it’s an absolute necessity - Tim Kitchen March 16, 2015 - Melbourne

Posted on Mar 11, 2015 by Tim Kitchen Last Activity on Apr 1, 2015

This post features the recording of Dr Tim Kitchen's presentation in Melbourne on March 16 titled - Creativity in Education is no longer an option, it’s an absolute necessity. Abstract From an industrial society to a knowledge based society and now to a creative society. This presentation challenges teachers and school administrators to keep up with societies changes or risk being irrelevant in the 21st Century. Numeracy and literacy skills are important but not at the expense of creativity, collab-oration and communication skills. The role of the 21st century teacher is not to self-deliver content but to facilitate the understanding of key concepts and skills, cater for a range of learning styles and encourage the use of a range of tools that interconnect to help students construct learning and be creative. Sir Ken Robinson says, “Creativity for me is not an option, it is an absolute necessity.” This presentation looks at some of the research surrounding the importance... Read More

Change the World in Two Weeks

Posted on Mar 2, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Mar 2, 2015

I pitched a blue sky project to my students today (March 2). On Friday, March 13, they'll deliver their plan/artifact/evidence of what/how/why they did/will continue to do to "make the world a better place." On Monday, March 16, they'll each present their results to their peers. They may work alone or collaboratively but each must document the journey on his/her blog. The project intro is in the video (below). I also linked to this scene from Pay It Forward in the quest.  Personal shocker: Less that 10% of the students have seen Pay It Forward. The kids responded enthusiastically to the challenge and the classroom was abuzz with possibilities. It's going to be an interesting two weeks.

Photography Book with inDesign - Lesson Plan

Posted on Mar 1, 2015 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Apr 10, 2015

Here is a lesson plan that I will be using for my Photography Class as their final assignment this year.  I have used this assignment in the past few years but not with inDesign.  I have used the free BLURB book creator desktop app that is downloadable from their website where we set up a store to print and sell extra copies of our student books as a fundraiser effort for my photography class to help offset costs for the course on things such as software renewal, photo printing paper, lighting equipment, etc.  We haven't raised a lot of money, because most are usually satisfied with their one copy, but I share the link with them to give to family and friends and tell them to encourage them to buy more copies as holiday gifts and to let them know that most of the proceeds go to support our class and to keep it going. As my class photography final I make them create a book designed from their best photos that they took this year.  They are required to make adjustments and manipulations to... Read More

Lead By Example

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 27, 2015

When we returned from winter break on January 5th I challenged my students to step out of their comfort zone and step up the creative effort. I felt the best way to make the challenge stick was to accept it myself so on the 4th I recorded a few videos, uploaded them to a YouTube playlist, and announced on the 5th that I'd add to the playlist every school day from that point forward. Crazy, eh? Teachers, like students, need a challenge. This is day 33 of a new series of Mac Lab videos (not counting finals and the first day of semester 2) and I'm currently on a 33 day hitting streak with 92 videos in the playlist. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished (and they're not). They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens all too often). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. But because not enough kids were embracing the challenge,... Read More

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Apr 1, 2015

67 unprocessed high-res photos converted to max quality JPGs from Raw originals. Free to use for education purposes. No attribution necessary. I have over 30K digital photos to sort in the months to come and I thought others might find value in free imperfect stock photography. Lots of opportunities to teach straighten, crop, enhance, sharpen, etc. (I'm not the world's greatest photographer.) I'll continue sorting and selecting images that are (hopefully) of potential value.  California Coast Photos
