The InDesign for Newspaper class instructed by Sara-Beth Badalamente switched software and began using Photoshop.
Homework from the last night was reviewed and the students continued to work towards their one-pager due at the end of the week. The students learned a few more tips before switching to Photoshop.
The morning session was a basic overview of what Photoshop is used for. Photoshop is an efficient tool for editing photographs. Using Photoshop, an individual can crop photos, resize photos, adjust and correct colors, touch-up photos, select filters, and create cutouts among other things.
“I have never used Photoshop before. It is fun to use because I really like designing things,” said Junior Theresa Benton of Mercy High School. “I like both InDesign and Photoshop because it’s fun to arrange things my own way. I have used programs that have a set template and I prefer designing my own page.”
