Class Description

Digital Imaging & Manipulation (2 Credits): This course will introduce students to still image manipulation techniques using Adobe Photoshop. Students will learn how to input their own captured images, or those from digital sources and manipulate the image for various digital or print outputs. Tools and commands covered will include colour correction, image fixes, multi-image compositing, layering, masking, adding text and effects. Students will develop skills and knowledge related to digital imaging in still and motion formats.  The main focus will be on still image (photographic) applications with a basic introduction to videography as a tool in various applications. Focus, composition, and exposure will form the groundwork that will combine with other technical aspects to provide students with a strong foundation of practical imaging skills.
