Greetings! I'm finally getting our school to switch from our perpetual, 500-seat site license of CS6 Master Collection to CC. Our budget admin is weighing the pros and cons of continuing to provide access to all Adobe products for all students, staff and faculty, due to the increase in cost. Our Ed Tech director is trying to negotiate with Adobe Education about this, but communication has been spotty. We are a 1-to-1 laptop school with a Mac Lab for digital arts classes in electronic music production, video, photo, animation and publication arts. Without access to CC on their PCs, students in those classes are limited to working only during class time and after school. Additionally, other students do use Adobe products provided on their PCs for other classes. I'm wondering how your school does it. What's possible? Is it necessary for kids to use Photoshop, or is there a free product that students can use instead? (Yes, that's a question I was asked. How would you respond???) Thanks!

The multiple me project was created for the first year graphic design students. Its a great project for using multiple adobe applications and works for any of these courses Photography foundation, Photoshop foundation and InDesign Foundation. The student plan and execute a photoshoot of themselves or a model photographing themselves multiple times in one scene. The students need to pay attention to depth of field, focus and shoot in manual mode. The camera can not be moved once the first image of the background is shot. Then using a timer or a friend they take multiple shots of themselves in the scene in various poses and positions. The students tend to work this project much more when they use themselves as the model. I use this photo of me dressed as the Village People playing poker to get the students inspired (all though none of them know who the village people are anymore so I might need to remake it soon). Using Adobe Bridge or Lightroom they filter through and choose five images plus the image of the background. They need to pay attention to placement of the model/themselves in the various shots as to not overlap them. I start the project having the students sketch out 3 or 4 ideas on paper. We discuss their ideas in class and they choose a runner. Once they have their 6 shots they open them up in photoshop as layers either from Bridge or Lightroom. Using selection tools and Layer masks they paint in the multiple shots of themselves in the image. You can search how its done on Youtube. The students are then asked to create a booklet in InDesign with entrance reflections, sketches of ideas, sketch of runner idea, final PS image and exit reflection. I will include some examples of the booklets, final images and rubric. Super fun project for all ages.
Greetings all, We are feeling some tension between laptop vs. teaching lab Mac management and I'm wondering how your school "does it"? Currently, we provide students their own PC laptop for the duration of their high school career. The site licensed Adobe CC software is installed on their machines. Additionally, I teach in a Mac Lab with 27" iMacs, and have multiple user accounts configured so students in different classes have their own user account on the Mac. Our tech office hasn't figured out how to allow for automatic Adobe CC updates, and we don't use Adobe cloud. Is this the best practice going forward, or can you think of a better way to do this? What works for you? Thanks for sharing your experience!Karen

This is a video guide for all the tasks that can be performed with the Move Tool, from where to find it in the tools panel, to Auto Aligning layers and even touching on how to use it in 3D mode. Since making the video I have created some new assets which I can attach here directly and you can use as you wish. The Pool table can be found online here: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5e/American-style_pool_table_diagram_%28empty%29.png It's quite a long video for just covering the Move Tool but goes through everything even with cool demonstrations.
Learning portrait photography and Photoshop go hand in hand. With today’s technology you can transform the standard portrait into a telling story about your genetic code and how much we are alike rather than different. The human face has distinct categorical characteristics known as dominate or recessive traits as some of you may have learned about in a biology course. Many are obvious between familial relatives but some are shared throughout the human race. In this exciting and hands-on project you will go through a carefully formulated portrait session acquiring the images with precise specifications and a standard portrait editing workflow incorporating basic masking and alignment skills in Photoshop. This is not a step-by-step tutorial for new users. It is a guide for users with basic knowledge of Photoshop and Bridge. Once my students have an understanding of Photoshop I find giving them a guide rather than step-by-step instruction challenges them to use critical problem solving skills using what they have already learned and make independent decisions to get from point A to B.
I work as am a picture book illustrator, animator and teacher. I am excited by the possibilities new technology can bring to art.
In the hopes that this will inspire you to support creativity in education, I wrote my pledge on a whiteboard and challenged myself to fill the board with pictures, at least some of which told a bit of a story or related to stories I know. I hope you enjoy it. This is released into the public domain; if you'd like to use it for anything, feel free.
Hi allI am wondering if you use any warmers/ ice-breaker exercises in your creative learning environment you want to share.Thank you.Have a great day Chris

As the year winds down, we have had many great resources shared here on the Ed Exchange, some found and others created by our members. Which ones stand out as the best resources this year? Why not comment and we can compile a shortlist of the best of the best?

Nine revealing pieces compiled in a poster grid where the student/designer visually reveals what they want another to know about them. A great project for an entire grading period. Each piece can be for a grade and then one for the whole. Students can present their projects to whole class which allows for them to get to know each other better. Requires research into things like professions or heritage. Uses photography and photo manipulation. Great end of school project when skills are developed and attention spans are short - focusing on themselves is priceless!

This is a step by step walkthrough to make a simple children's book using material from the site Project Gutenberg. I have also made available the InDesign source files so that you may add or modify the instructions :)
