Monday, October 14th - No School

District School Calendar

Printing Your Files & Saving Files For Web

We have a Lexmark Laser Printer (C790):

  • After you press print, a dialogue box will pop up.

  • Be sure the Lexmark C790 Printer is selected.

  • Check the orientation of your paper is correct (Portrait or Landscape)

  • Be sure to scroll down a bit and check the SCALE TO FIT MEDIA box.

  • Print to the Lexmark (Copy 2) printer


Saving For Web In Photoshop

  • Open your work. Select all. Choose EDIT, then COPY MERGED

  • Create a new file and size, then paste what you just copied.

  • Make sure your file is resized.

  • Make sure your file has no white around it and it's cropped.

  • With your file open, go to FILE - SAVE FOR WEB & DEVICES (Legacy)

  • In the upper right corner, select the JPEG option and make sure it's set to HIGH QUALITY

  • In the lower left corner, you'll see the file tag JPEG and a time it take to load in seconds. It should be under 100 seconds.

  • Choose SAVE and select your block folder.

Turning In Your Assignments

We have a class in-box. The shortcut to it is on your desktop:

  • This folder contains YOUR folder with your class work. It is where you can keep your design work in class or move  things into from your One Drive or your Flash Drive if you do work at home.

  • Above your folders are numbered ‘In-Boxes’, each one corresponding with a project. This is where you turn in your completed work for a grade. Doing so gives me a date and time stamp of when you turn your work in.

  • Find the numbered In-Box. Open your work and choose "SAVE AS", then choose your file format, choose the inbox (which may have a folder in it already with your name to make it even easier). 

 

  • Keep in min that when you’re working on something and save it to your folder, you may be required to turn in a different, specific file format other than .PSD, such as a .jpeg or .png.
