dc.description.abstract This project explores the digital imaging software of Adobe Photoshop for the Macintosh computer. I chose this area for two reasons: the demand for knowledge of the program in my field of photojournalism and to have a 'workable piece to display in my portfolio.I used two books to help me acquaint myself with the software: Adobe Photoshop: Classroom in a Book and the advanced version, Advanced Photoshop: Classroom in a Book from Adobe Press. The books, the first containing 14 lesson and the second 12, took the reader step by step through the process of designing a piece, whether it be an ad, a billboard or menu cover, while providing the artwork and detailed explanations on how and why the methods were used. A few of the lessons I skipped, such as the monitor calibration lessons, understanding color and scanning and resolution because I had been over the material in one form or another.This project is organized so that the lessons are in numerical order with the beginning book first and the advanced second. I have tried to briefly explain what I have done to complete the lessons and list the techniques new to the lesson. The color pages contain the finished product, the large piece at the bottom of the page, and the raw artwork provided in the lesson at the top of the page. The final piece is an original which will be explained in greater detail on the page previous to the illustration.
