2. What have you learnt about the technologies from the process of constructing this product Using microsoft word to familiarise myself with creating a magazine cover, helping put my ideas down Using Photoshop to manipulate my images used for my magazineUsing moodle to collect any useful resourcesthat links in with my magazine Using adobe indesign to help create my contents page which I also learned how to use
Stages of development for front page on Photoshop I started off by experimenting on a wordFinal image document, this was to familiarizes myself when designing a front cover, learning the basic and how to structure my work; here is a screen shot of my original image I then moved on to Photoshop were I decided to change my main image, were I began to recreate a different front cover idea from the one I did on the word document. I then finally decided on what colours to go for and where I will place my cover lines, masthead etc. I edited the main image to main it stand out more also so that my box text writing will stand out.
Stages of development for contents page on InDesign My overall concept for my contents page was to make sure the colours were similar to my front cover and to make sure that it is still relevant to the task. For the layout I decided to have a review on one side from the principal which welcomes the reader to the college, and having the contents in the middle which you can clearly be able to read it, also having it right in the centre of the page will grab the readers attention because it lets you know what will be in the magazine. I wanted to make it look more of a college magazine so I then decided to add a few pictures of students around the college studying, sitting relaxing which helps create an atmosphere the college has on the students. Indesign helped me create the contents page I wanted a nd designed before on paper, it was tricky to use because I havent previously used this software so find the right tools also adding me images was a little bit difficult for me
