First of all, I really enjoyed this class. I feel that I learned so many different skills and have far surpassed my previous knowledge of adobe software. My favorite program was easily Adobe Premiere, this program took all of the topics and abilities that we learned through out the semester. I had fun with Premiere, because my favorite part of seeing a movie in theaters are the trailers. Premiere allowed me to make my own short story, much like a seek-peek.
The Photo Shop techniques I learned in this class were probably the most useful. I used the software to help my dad touch his photo’s up and showed him a few things for fun. I also finally figured out all the mysteries behind photos-shopped memes. Know when I see things that seem too out of the ordinary, I can find little details to help me decide if the picture is real or fake.
I will use illustrator most in my future. One day I want to own my business Illustrator will help design my company logo and look great with business cards. The great thing about Illustrator is the images aren’t made of pixels, so I can use the image for any size, maybe billboards.
I haven’t been the most technologically inclined and didn’t know that half these software existed. I think that this course adequately prepares students with experience in modern day job-like requirements. The way the world is moving towards programs like the ones that we covered, I feel this course is very worth students’ time as is.
YouTube was definitely a life-saver in this class. If there was ever a time where I couldn’t figure out how to do something specific in any of the units, I could always find a hundred plus videos on how to do it. I also found fellow students that had experience in some the software and they were very helpful.
