6. What have you learnt about technologiesfrom the process of constructing this product? InDesign I learnt how to put a drop shadow on the whole text box and not just the text itself. I did this by using the drop shadow tool and doing this has helped my magazine name stand out on every page, not just my contents page. I also used this tool on my images and masthead as well. This tool has helped me to make the images look like real photographs and stand out against the green background.

InDesign Also, on my contents page, I colour coded the relevant cover lines to the corresponding picture of the musician. I did this by using the colour tab and changing the LAB numbers to match the previous colour. By altering the LAB figures, it ensures that I use the same colour scheme throughout my magazine.
6. What have you learnt about technologiesfrom the process of constructing this product? InDesign On my contents page, I also used the rotate tool to make the text boxes appear slanted. Having all my text boxes completely straight made the contents page look boring and not very entertaining. I used this tool on many text boxes in my contents page. By selecting the rotate tool and moving the selected box in the direction you want it, it allows the whole text box to be placed in a slanted position. Without the rotate tool, my contents page would look very boring and nothing like a real music magazine.
