Liked the idea of including your Linked In information so we can get to know you better. The class assignment is a good one, I saw one similar to this online some time ago.​ Had hoped to see example and video, maybe I wasn't looking in the right place.

Why would you save a 72dpi image as a TIFF? I can understand comparing file sizes but you can't do anything with a 72dpi TIFF.
