Looking back at your preliminary task [the school magazine], what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?
From looking back at my school magazines (Parent & Pupil), I feel as if I have improvedmy skills on photoshop and also become more clear with how to make a magazine lookmore professional. I have found out from my research that magazines do not have to beam packed with things and it doesn’t have to be really complicated like I thought itwould. I have also found out that for publishing documents, publisher is definitely alotbetter, whereas photoshop should just be used for editing your photos, as I have foundout from my experience of making my magazine that publisher is alot more simple thanphotoshop and is much easier to manipulate text. If I compare my front covers of mymagazine, you can see, my music magazine is alot better and contains more stories onthe front , making it look more professional, and also the title stands out alot more.Although I think I have over – photoshopped my magazine, and with the time given Ididnt have enough time to re-do it, so I had to leave it as it is. If I were to do mymagazine again, I would probably only use Photoshop for editing my images which weregoing to be on my magazine, and I would then export them and put them on mymagazine on a program such as InDesign, Illustrator or Publisher, simply because the textlooks like it is a higher quality and more professionally laid out.
