Home /  Courses And Programs / Visual Communications: Digital Imaging


Graphic design projects are not complete until a high quality product with acceptable output or reproduction clarity is accomplished. Whether it is printed collateral, screen presentations, or projected digital media, the visual designer must be familiar with the technical requirements associated with a variety of output methodologies. Using Adobe Photoshop, students will learn to identify key technical requirements such as color definitions, file formats, and resolutions, and understand how to implement these requirements into design projects.
