Greetings, fellow students and teachers J ! As this week’s blog post is all about online tools and using them, I think I have some personal information related to the subject that I can share.
As we all know, in the 21st century technology is advancing so rapidly that people cannot keep up. I believe everyone in this programme has some skills, which might be of use to me. Personally, I have been dealing with Photoshop CS for about four years now but I have always restrained myself to learn only the tools in that program which I would need. These past two-three weeks provided me with the motivation to advance In this particular field outstandingly fast.
Why Photoshop ? Well, considering that one of my passions is Photography, I really assimilated that Adobe programs and particularly Photoshop are tools which are directly related to it. Furthermore, in my opinion, they are essential to designers, because of the enormous capabilities they have to transform your imagination into an understandable drawing.
As a matter of fact, yesterday, while drawing the spidergram on my laptop Ibi looked really interested in the way things are put together in Photoshop. Although I don’t consider myself as a specialist, I am more than willing to help him and everyone else who wants with all I can so they could get started with Photoshop or Photography. Nevertheless, I believe each group needs at least one person who is familiar with Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Draw etc. , because a big part of proving ourselves as a trustworthy NGO is accurate and thorough presentation on the Internet. After all, nowadays Internet is of significant importance to every person on the world, no matter a student, a businessman, a designer…
I am open to any questions regarding the fields that I have been dealing with. Should anyone require information about Photoshop or Photography, please do not hesitate to contact and ask me. I have seen a lot of skills in the people of this programme that I want to acquire, so I am sure that mutual communicating and teaching will be of great use to our future J
