Evaluation Question 6 What have you learnt about technologies from the process of construction this product?
Phtotoshop has played a big roll i the construction of the magazine as it has been the main piece of software in which i used to create it. Photo shop has many different tricks which you can learn to turn a simple image into a amazing magazine cover. One of the most simple but most usefull things i have learnt is how to keep image clarity whilst stilll resizing the image. May be simple but holding down the Shift Key and Dragging from the images corners allows the image to sty clear and this became very usefull through out the construction there were multiple images which had to have their size changed and minipulated. Also in photoshop i have learned you ca change an develope a lot of different effects on image by using the FX section on the tool bar. This was very usefull and has helped me develope my skills on photoshop.
Powerpoint is one of my favourite presentation softwares and this is mostly due to its complete efficiency and simplicity. You can easily construct answers and make good presentations which are clear within minutes. I however learnt that its easier to create the answers on a word document and then paste them in when your lay out is correct i did this so i did not spend too much time making text fit to he layout.
Prezi was one of the first experimental presentatio softwars which i have used and it is very difficult to use in my opinion. The software is designed to make presentations but is hard to navigate and if not carefully proof viewed you may end up with alot of missing information or the information tha you are trying to get across may be viewed in a completely random order. The prezi however was quite easy to translate over to blogger whereas some of the other software have to be processsed via different sites in order o achieve this
Those are an example of some of the platforms in which i have used throughout. The magazine was constructed with care and this was good as it allowed me to experience different platforms and develope my knowledge. Before i used to use mostly word documents and powerpoint but now i have effective different software. Some platforms are more suited to me but i have learnt you need patience with most in order to gain the most success.
