Desktop Publishing


In Desktop Publishing students will learn the basics of operating an SLR camera, using GIMP, and the basics of Yearbook Avenue.  We will do many projects which teach students on ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed.  We will use these skills to take photos of every day events which will be published in the Yearbook.  In edition to learning photography, students also learn beginning Graphic Design using GIMP.  We will use the skills in both Graphic Design and Photography to create our yearbook.   The students are responsible for taking the photos, manipulating the photos (i.e. red eye and re-sizing), and designing the layout for the pages they were assigned.

Other activities that we participate in will be the selling of Yearbook Ads, and the development process of making ads for the yearbook.
