The rest of the students will work on projects or assignments on those days. Morning students may want to be sure to bring or use headphones those days if you don’t want to hear the same thing repeated five times.
If you are not one of the seven students who will be helping me present in the morning sessions but you have completed a project or assignment that you think the sophomores would be interested in, please email the link to the assignment or project on your blog and tell me why they would be interested or find it “cool”. You all have done great things this semester. I will explore options for displaying samples of everyone’s work!
Have you always wanted Adobe Photoshop but not purchased it because of the cost? Here is your chance to get the most current versions of Adobe Photoshop plus Adobe Lightroom along with a couple other perks for just $10 a month! What a bargain! Don’t delay though because the offer is only good until Dec. 2nd! Kinda sounds like I’m an Adobe sales rep doesn’t it? I don’t work for Adobe but that is a good price if you want the product.http://prodesigntools.com/new-photoshop-cc-photography-program.html.
Do you have a big entrepreneurial dream but lacking the funds to make it happen? If so, check out the “Dream Big Oklahoma” Grant Contests.
Check out “Realistically colorized historical photos” by Twentytwowords.com for some amazing Photoshop work.
Mrs. Jakubek will be my sub today. I may be able to check my email periodically throughout the day if you have questions.
Be sure to include a description of the software and tools and/or techniques you use each day as well as the screen shot or before and after images. If you post just the image you will not get full credit for the blog entry that day.
Morning students… be sure to read the blog entry about the posters that I added late yesterday morning!
Congratulations to Lillie for earning her Adobe InDesign CS 5.5 Brainbench certification!
Wanting some new font choices? Check out FontoberFest from CreativePro.com. Each Friday during the month of November they provided free fonts.
Great job on the poster designs. Some very creative ideas. Some of the fonts make it extremely difficult to read the words. Be careful when selecting fonts. Be unique but you still have to get the message across and that can’t happen if we can’t read the information! Some posters were very professional looking and would look great in the hallway… and some lacked professionalism!
Click on one of the images below to enlarge the image and then you can scroll through all the poster designs. Some images take a few seconds to load in the larger view. When finished, press Esc to return to the blog entry.
Look at all the posters and then send me an email with the name of the student who you think has the most professional, yet creative, poster design!
Be sure to email me your detailed goals for the week. If you aren’t sure what to work on, please ask me!
