Evaluation of school magazine

  1. 1. Evaluation of School Magazine<br />This is the final task of the preliminary exercise. I will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of my School Magazine<br />
  2. 2. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms of real media products?<br />I followed codes and conventions.<br />I feel I used them to my full advantage. <br />Also I feel I developed my use of codes and conventions.<br />In terms of challenging, I didn't challenge them enough to make my cover stand out from others.<br />
  3. 3. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms of real media products?<br />Although I followed the forms and conventions I didn't follow them completely or correctly.<br />For example, the main cover line is not big enough and there is no sub heading underneath. <br />
  4. 4. How did you use new media technologies in the construction of your media product?<br />I learnt how to use Photoshop and QuarkXPress.<br />I used Photoshop for my front cover.<br />I used QuarkXPress for my contents page.<br />
  5. 5. How did you use new media technologies in the construction of your media product?<br />I had only used Photoshop a few times before hand to the task.<br />Therefore my front cover is not the best it could be.<br />For example, main coverline was supposed to be in the middle of the page but didn't end up there.<br />
  6. 6. How did you use new media technologies in the construction of your media product?<br />QuarkXPress was a brand new software to me.<br />I had trouble with Quark so my contents page isn't as good as it could be.<br />For example, I didn't plan ahead so when I thought I finished there was too many white spaces because of the lack of text which I had to back and fix.<br />
  7. 7. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Strengths of Front Cover<br />I followed the codes and conventions for the text.<br />My main image is a mid shot and uses direct address.<br />I included all of the things that should be on a front cover.<br />
  8. 8. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Strengths of Photoshop use.<br />I used all of the tools to my advantage.<br />I used the layers to help complete another task for the exercise.<br />I feel I learnt how to use it in a short space of time.<br />
  9. 9. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Strengths of Contents Page.<br />I used enough images.<br />I followed codes and conventions.<br />For example, I used columns in my layout.<br />Another example of codes and conventions is the ‘Features’ and ‘Regulars’ headings.<br />
  10. 10. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Strengths of QuarkXPress.<br />I feel I learnt how to use it in a short space of time.<br />I could use the tools to help me complete another task for the exercise.<br />It was very straightforward to use which made it easier to make my contents page than I thought.<br />
  11. 11. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Weaknesses of Front Cover.<br />My main coverline was not big enough.<br />I had no sub heading for my main coverline.<br />I ended up with too much space.<br />Lack of text and sub images on my cover.<br />
  12. 12. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Weaknesses of Photoshop.<br />At first it was hard to use.<br />Just to set up a new project was complicated with all the different settings that had to be changed.<br />There is too many buttons on the screen to choose from and sometimes it could confuse me.<br />
  13. 13. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Weaknesses of Contents Page.<br />I didn’t have enough text so there small gaps between all of the different texts.<br />The images are not the right shape.<br />I feel it was rushed so it is nowhere near as good as it could be.<br />
  14. 14. What are the strengths and weaknesses of both the product and your use of new media technologies?<br />Weaknesses of QuarkXPress.<br />I couldn’t use the image boxes.<br />I did my work on the wrong page because there is several different pages to work on which can get confusing.<br />There wasn’t enough buttons and options so it felt like me options were limited.<br />
