Whether you are preparing photos for print or the web, this course will show you efficient and effective ways of getting the most out of photos of your art.
This day-long workshop is about the processes of preparing and storing digital image files (most often photographs).
This workshop will cover the when, why and how of preparing digital image files looking at two distinct areas: file formatting and file storage/cataloguing.
You will learn how to embed Metadata to images of your work, to help protect creative works by providing all the necessary information about the artist and copyright. Time will also be given to the calibration of computer screens.
The session will present best practice in relation to Photoshop, Apple’s Photos and Media Pro software packages. These three packages are used for demonstration purposes only. If you use another software package the principles learnt on one package will cross over to another.
Participants wishing to attend should have some basic familiarity with creating, saving and finding files on their pc or Apple computer, and preparing images for attachment to emails, etc. Participants may, if they wish, bring a laptop to this event.
