Save And Upload To Focus
All work will be turned in using FOCUS. I will be able to grade your work, count your work and give feedback on your work using Focus. In class, turn in work using the class InBox. Final Project folders will be numbered and titled.
Grades will be entered within 1 or 2 weeks of turning in your project. Some projects will take one or two days for you to complete, some will take several weeks. Please be patient as grading is completed.
Work turned in late will receive one letter grade lower each day it is late. If it's more than 3 days late without instructor approval, absence, excused absence or extenuating circumstance, the grade stands. Due Dates are very important in industry and in our class.
Saving Photoshop Files
.PSD files preserve your layers, allowing you to come back and work on files with all your work preserved.
.JPEG files are compressed for display online. 300 resolution or better. Anything below is too blurry.
.PNG files are high quality and create a transparent background.
We have a class network to save your class work:
It allows you to keep work in class that you are working on. This file contains a folder for 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.
