This Apple Imac G5 has a Duel core processor which enables the
machine to multitask several applications at once. This is key when
working with adobe Photoshop and other applications such as safari
in order to do research. The machine is equipped with 3GB which
means it can run several applications without the need to be
reloaded. The keyboard was only used for researching on safari or
using the hot keys for example cmd+c which copies the thing you
want and cmd+v to paste the thing you want. The mouse was used
at all times to navigate the computer software.
Nikon D3100- Digital SLR
Settings – Manual
Aperture f11 with a shutter speed at 1/300th
Horseshoe flash trigger and a hemisphere 300 strobe flash in
conjunction with the camera as well as the soft boxes and backdrop
to make the lighting more natural.
The horseshoe trigger connects to the DSLR camera enables the
flash from the strobe lights to be triggered at the same time that
the camera takes the picture. The white back drop is there to give a
high exposure and a whiter background.
I used the SD card in the camera which enabled the pictures I took
to save on the card. I then inserted the SD card into the USB SD card
reader and plugged it in to the iMac I then transferred the pictures
into a folder named ‘Photo shoot’
Software refers to the entire set of programs, procedures,
and related documentation associated with a system and
especially a computer system; specifically : computer
Adobe Photoshop is a graphics editor created by the company
Adobe who produces other software like in-design. I used
Photoshop to edit pictures and put together graphics such as
pictures, boxes and shapes to create my cover, contents and article
for my music magazine.
I started off in Photoshop by playing around with the text and all
the tools to enable me to get the hang of using it. I set the page to
A4 International size. From there I created my Pre-lim task by just
using the basic tools which helped me to produce my Music
I used safari as my web browser as it was pre installed on the
computer. I used this browser to research existing magazines and to
get an idea of what I could do for my music magazine.
Slide share is a Web based slide hosting service. Where people can upload files
privately or publicly in the following file formats: PowerPoint, PDF, Keynote or Open
Document presentations. Slide Share can then be viewed on the site itself, on hand
held devices or embedded on other sites. I used this website to embed my coursework
I wrote on PowerPoint onto my blog.
I used Adobe InDesign for my magazine article as it is used when working with large
amounts of text, which is what I was doing. InDesign has many features that are
exclusive just to them, for instance being able to make text carry on from one box to
I used PowerPoint to write up my evaluation. I used it because it is easy to use and
have had experience using it since primary school. It has a built in Spell Checker which
is useful to make sure I have spelt everything right.
I used Word for one of my homework's which was to analyse a front cover. I used
word to do this as it is basic and easy to use all I needed to do was insert a picture
and write text around it which word enabled me to do.
Word Press is a website that enables me to own my own blog
which means I can insert media such as images and videos as well as
text. Also I can use this blog to embed documents like PowerPoint's.
I used Word Press as it is easy to use as the features are easily
assessable and labelled. It is also useful because it dose not just
work on one operating system you can access it if your on your
phone or tablet.
