Week 3 Picture Manipulation in Photoshop

*preferences: go to photoshop at the top of the photoshop application
*mode: go to image
*image size: go to image
*canvas size: go to image
*resolution: 72 for web
*save as an original file: go to file, save as
*save for web: go to file, save for web

*raster image: conglomerat of pixels
*the pixel is the main ingrediant of a digital image
*a series of 0s and 1s is computer language
*bit map/raster: is a bit map, pixel is the main ingrediant-ways to save: BMP limited bit map file formant, not suitable for web, GIF compressed format good for the internet graphics with solid colors, JPEG a compressed format that means we can lower resolution, good for photographs, TIF not a compressed format, cannot lower resolution
*vector: combination of line and dots-ways to save: .EPS flexible file format that contains a combination of bit map and vector information, PICT used on a mac computer and contains vector and raster data, SWF flash application(animations), SVG emerging XML when your coating you save image
Engaging Moment: I got to learn some interesting techniques today in class, like how to duplicate a picture the easy way, use the free transform tool with an image and learn to apply different tectures and color to an image.
Most Disengaging Moment: I was getting lost alot, Carmen was moving really fast, but I tried my best to catch up and ask her questions.

Nice tiles you got there. They came out way better than mine. Mine came out lame and dark.
