This page gives information about the different courses which this site will be useful for..

All courses. Don't forget to back up your work. I suggest via memory sticks and the Cloud.

It is really important that you set up a folder structure where you keep all your work saved in the correct place. It is easy to start off with good intentions and then lapse.

AS AND A2 PHOTOGRAPHY

A2 students will be working on their chosen theme and need to progress their Photoshop skills.

I suggest you go straight to the advanced techniques page. You need to wrap up your Photoshop themed work (similar to the A2 fantasy theme) by the end of January.

AS students will need to start with the basics for a week or two and then begin to think about putting together a full presentation of ideas and techniques culminating in a fantasy theme.

The sa symbol means you are expected to master the relevant technique using your own images. The form below and the before and after images should be submitted

APPLIED ICT UNIT 6

As you know Applied ICT is a scenario work based qualification. We will get the scenario in September as some stage. In the meantime if you are new to Photoshop then start with the basic skills page. Those who have experience of using Photoshop I am sure there are new things to try and refresh your understanding.
