Digital Imagery and Designs




In the era of digital photography, it is absolutely necessary for everyone involved in the creation of digital images and process to understand the basics fundamentals. Whether you are an aspiring hobbyist, image retouches, a makeup artist, or an Art Director working with photographers and retouches.  Image processing is a method to perform some operations on an images, in order to get an enhanced image or to extract some useful information from it. It is a type of signal processing in which input is an image and output may be image or characteristics/features associated with that image. Nowadays, image processing is among the rapidly growing technologies.  Generally speaking, most folks tend a lump image editing and image manipulation together. Image editing has more to do with optimizing a File’s dynamic range for the intended display media, optimizing the color saturation and color correctness, and potentially cropping the image to its best presentation format.Image manipulation on the other hand has to do with extracting elements from one photograph either to move them to another area of that photograph or to put them into a different photographic file with different elements. It has also to do with altering the direction and quality and text Rob Light, in a given photograph. It sometimes also has to do with simply illuminating individual elements of a photograph, like removing a person place or thing. So it is fundamentally to change the content of the frame where editing is fundamentally to optimize the content of the frame.


This is aimed at making participant a better designer. The practice marries theory and practice, as both are valuable in improving design performance. Lectures and readings will lay out the fundamental concepts that underpin design as a human activity. Weekly design challenges test your ability to apply those ideas to solve real problems. This is deliberately broad - spanning all domains of design,  graphics, services, apparel,  and products. The emphasis of the this is the basic design process: define, explore, select, and refine. You, the student, bring to the program a particular interests and expertise related to, for instance, furniture, fashion, architecture, or products.  All project work is evaluated by your peers -- and indeed, you will also be a peer reviewer. This format allows you to see an interesting collection of projects while getting useful feedback on your own project.
