Editing Images in Photoshop
When you take digital photographs of your 2D artworks, you may need to edit the images in Photoshop to crop, rotate, and adjust your images to make them suitable for publication/exhibition. try to make sure the images you capture of your work don't have a direct light source close to them as you may get a reflection or a lighter spot in your image. Try to get the artwork as square as possible to the camera frame. If it's not perfect, you can tweak the image with Photoshop.
Here are some tips that you might want to use for your images:
3. QR code exhibition (not assessed, optional activity to be included in the end of year exhibition)
If you want to participate, can you provide me with a QR code generated from a URL for an image on your blog or video on your blog/youtube/vimeo that can form part of our QR code exhibition?
You can use a website like this one to generate the QR code:
Make sure you save your QR code with the following naming protocol:
I will put all of the codes together into a PDF file we can print and place around campus or in other locations. We will also be able to stick it up in the Grad show in the Gallery so visitors can access the online content.
We also need to think of a name for the QR code exhibition. Last year it was suggested that we use the MIT exhibition name generator to come up with a silly pseudo-intellectual name for it: just a crazy idea...
