Adobe Photoshop CS6
In my year of doing AS at school, I used Photoshop
before to edit my images for my magazine on music. This
year, I am planning on using Photoshop to enable myself
to edit the images I am going to use for my digipak. I
think that the format will benefit me when I am creating
my digipak and magazine cover as I know the quick ways
of editing images, which can therefore allow me to make
my images look more professional and will stand out as
a good looking image of my actress. I want to use tools
such as air brush on my actress to make her stand out
from the rest of my digipak/magazine cover as she is the
main focus which I want my audience to notice.
Adobe Indesign CS6
As I have got previous experience on using Indesign, I am going to be more
confident with using this format as I understand the ins and outs of what
different tools can be used for, and how it is going to better my work. I will
use this format to create pieces of work such as my digipak and my
magazine advert. As I have previously used it for my magazine at AS, I
understand the basics to how to edit my work and make it look more
professional looking when it comes to the placement of images, wording
I think that the previous experience that I have got is going to benefit me
when I am working as it will allow me to work faster, and I will not have to
follow the tutorials as I did last year. Hopefully as I already have my ideas
for my digipak, I will be able to work quickly when putting my ideas
together to make it successful.
Adobe Premiere CS6
With premiere, I haven't used it in the past with my AS work, so it a
new format for me to use. I had to learn the different ways which I
can put my music video together and how I am going to make it as
good as I can. I have made some alterations along to way of what is
actually going to be included in my music video, and this meant I
had to learn about the affects and how to apply them to my clips.
For me, it was important for my video to look as professional as
possible, and for it to be easy flowing with the understanding of the
audience, so using premiere, I have used certain affects such as
black and white. These affects will allow me to widen my knowledge
and apply them to keep a better understanding.
Not only this, but I had to learn to link my music with my clips, as I
also had to cut my song down to a shorter introduction, to fit the
starting clip which I chose.
