This class is for anyone wanting to learn digital illustration and photo editing/manipulation with a focus on techniques used in digital scrapbooking.
First we start by installing the Pen Tablet and software suite. We'll do some exercises to get accustomed to the feel of the Pressure Sensitive Pen and how to do away with using the mouse.
Then we will use two software programs to create backgrounds, touch-up photos, create borders and fleurs, mask images and draw with vector tools.
The class also covers the basics of using and sharing image formats, resolution and tips and tricks for outputting work on the web as well as tackling printing things the right size.
Students are encouraged to bring their own laptop. If you do not have a laptop there are several in the studio for you to use. You can then take your CD home and install the custom software suite on your desktop.
* Price includes Wacom Bamboo Tablet ($69 Pen or $99 Pen & Touch), custom software suite with clipart library CD, class instruction plus snacks and drinks.
