    Question 6 Question 6 Presentation Transcript

    • 6.) What have you learnt about the technologies from the process of constructing this product?
    • Photoshop – Used to manipulate images that would appear throughout the magazine, on the Front Cover, Contents Page and Double Page Spread. InDesign – Used to create the layout for the Contents Page and Double Page Spread, as well as adding articles and images to create the final magazine. Digital Camera – Used to capture my own images, using different angles and shot types . Blogger – Used to record the progress I made during the construction of the magazine. Blogger shows drafts, final versions and evaluations of my progress. NME Magazine – Used as inspiration for my own magazine, I used the NME website and magazine to look at features and layouts, to see what should be included in an ‘Indie’ magazine.
    • Using Photoshop. The first screen shot shows the Original Image, as I captured it, in Photoshop. I chose to edit the background, as it made the image of the artist stand out, and appear more professional, as though it should be in a magazine. To do this, I used Curves, and a magnetic lasso to cut over the image of the artist. Finally, I edited the blue shade of the jacket, making it bolder. To do this, I changed the hue of the image. I found Photoshop a very effective way to edit images, as it allowed me to change the colours and shapes of images to fit the style of my magazine.
    • Using InDesign. Using InDesign allowed me to make a layout for my Contents Page, and my Double Page Spread. In the first screen shot, I have the general layout for my Contents Page. InDesign allowed me to place boxes where I wanted to place images and text, and made it easy for me to edit the placement and colour scheme easily. After placing the images from Photoshop into the boxes, I edited them further by adding a drop shadow behind them. This effect was used on every image, and made the Contents Page appear more professional and creative, making it more appealing towards my target audience. I found InDesign an effective way to create a layout for my magazine, as it was easy to edit.
