Student journalists work on Photoshop spreads after completing their lesson. Their lesson explored ways to change backgrounds, alter color schemes and adjust layers.

Eleven MIPA student journalists learned new ways to use color, layers and Photoshop tools in the Creative Illustrative Technique class, led by instructor Chad Bennett on day one of MIPA.

The lesson focused on the student journalists establishing a basic comfort with Photoshop and establishing a solid foundation to continue building their skill set over the next three days.

“Pages that look fun and exciting make people want to see more and read on,” Bennett said. “The ability to create illustrations and make spreads more attractive gives a sense of fun.”

Students spent their morning session creating a spread with their new knowledge of adjusting layers, changing background colors and creating cutouts.

“I feel like I’ve learned so much in just a day of this class,” student journalist Linsley Snider said. “I don’t know Photoshop very well, but I feel like by the end of this class I’ll have learned a lot of valuable details and will be able to bring new information back to staff.”
