Visual Design CS5: Collages and photography (British English version)
Project Published 8/13/10 Last updated on 6/8/17
To produce quality images for print, web, and video, students need to understand essential graphic design principles and how digital images are created. In this project, students learn the basics of photography, image composition, and elements of visual design as they create a collage. Students take photos and gather images from various sources, identifying elements of visual design that reflect good composition. They use Photoshop to retouch and manipulate these photos and images to build a collage. Through this process, they learn about copyright issues and document their learning by using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.
