Title:   Design a Book with Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator      

Course Number:      GRA 0013N1
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

The class' objective is to be able to utilize three Adobe applications: Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign to create and design a book that will be printed at the end of class. We will learn the basic tools in each program to achieve this goal. In Photoshop we will look at layers, color correction, layers, masks, paths, colorizing and duo-tones, learn the basics of scanning reflective art, negatives, and slides and gain a good understanding of resolution. In Illustrator, a vector program, we will learn basic skills such as drawing, type, layers, masks, painting and gradients. We will then take images we have worked with in Photoshop and Illustrator and lay them out in InDesign and carefully consider the book's layout.
