Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?<br />
The tools I used when producing my YC magazine and the tools I used when producing my final magazine...<br />From the lists of tools I used in each magazine, I can see that I used a lot more tools in the making of my final magazine. This shows my progression from my YC magazine and shows how my Photoshop skills have improved.<br />Final Magazine<br /><ul><li>Text tool

Shape tool – To put a background behind the masthead so it could be seen more clearly.
Free transform - To adjust the image size.</li></li></ul><li>Improvements since my YC magazine...<br />Bigger Masthead<br />When designing my final product I decided that my masthead must be much bigger than it was in my YC magazine. I wanted it to stand out so that it would attract my audience.<br />
My final magazine looks much better with a clear background as it makes it look more professional. This is an improvement from my college magazine as for that I didn’t do anything to the background and kept the background from the image. I used the background eraser to make this improvement. <br />2.Clear Background behind image<br />
3. Variety of cover lines with different fonts and colours<br />When I made my YC magazine my cover lines were all written in similar fonts and in black. This looked boring and nothing stood out therefore when I made my final magazine I used colour and different fonts to make my front cover more interesting. I also used drop shadow to add interest to some of my cover lines. <br />
4. Bar code, price and issue number<br />My YC magazine did not feature a bar code, price or issue number. Therefore when I made my final magazine I made sure I included these conventions. <br />
Unlike the YC magazine contents page, for my final magazine I have included the text and photos. I have developed my contents page by presenting the information in random boxes instead of columns,<br />
