Graphic Design Techniques: Digital Imaging and Colour Management  (EDGD201)

Time: 9am - 4pm
Duration: 1 day

Description:

Why don't my designs look as good when they are printed as they do on my computer screen? Why do my colours keep changing as I go from one computer or printer to another? Why can't I just take a logo off a website and blow it up for a marketing piece? Because each device interprets the colour differently. You need to teach your devices how to "talk" to each other and then send the translations with the file through the entire workflow. That's what digital imaging and colour management is all about. And that's what this class is all about too.

Prerequisites:

Students must have experience with digital photo editing software
