This class is going to cover the very basics if GIMP. It’s a very powerful tool for editing imagery and it’s free, and ideal for enhancing photos or basic graphics work. For a one night class, I'm going to cover the most basic tools, and the most obvious applications for first-time users, like touching up photos or creating a basic graphic or text editing.
The date is set for Thursday, January 29 2010 at 7pm.
- The many applications of the Shift key
- Designing for internet
- Designing for print
- Scanning pencil art work
Photo Editing and Touch-Up
- Rotate Canvas
Basic Graphic Design
- Color (change individual letters)
- Maybe some transforming effects
Illustration with Benalene
Inkscape basics in 10 minutes
- Pen tool
- Fonts (if I have time)
Creating a quick logo? Layout for a business card? I'm open to suggestions based on what students would like to see.
I wouldn't mind photo touchup, which I understand is one of the more simpler things to teach. Erase a blemish on a face, correct red-eye, etc. Omegix 10:06, 19 January 2010 (CST)
