Fox Fridays Basics: Adobe Suite for Beginners
This workshop, intended for beginner-level users of the Adobe Suite, will provide a basic overview of the Adobe programs Lightroom, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Students can choose to bring their own work in to use, or templates will be provided to work off of. Students will begin with linework from Rhino that will be brought into Illustrator, then Photoshop to show the work process through the programs to create a drawing. Next, students will process an image (model photo suggested) through Lightroom and Photoshop, learning to edit to create a nice final image. Lastly, the drawing and image will be combined in a layout in InDesign, as students learn how to navigate and create templates in the program.
Takeaways: Students will produce an 11"x17" spread with an image that has been edited through Lightroom and Photoshop, a drawing that has been edited in Illustrator and Photoshop, and text that will be laid out in InDesign.
Cross-disciplinary Connections: This workshop will help in preparing a portfolio, as well as providing general help with preparing images and work to be shown at reviews, pin-ups, exhibits, etc.
Instructors: Emily Rupright is a fourth-year undergraduate student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Architecture. Eric Kim is a third-year undergraduate student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Architecture with a minor in Urban Design.
