Students explore the capabilities of powerful programs to manipulate, aggregate and translate digital images and video footage. The course covers editing, proofing, and printing images; provides instruction in basic enhancement to digital photography; develops skill in digital image-making to produce high-quality large scale prints. Students apply the techniques of computer drawing, painting, digitizing, and animation to computer-generated images or images from external sources such as photography, video, and scanners. Images and text are combined to create large-scale compositions. This class is designed for students with photography and fine arts background. In some terms this course may be cross-tallied at a more advanced level as CDM 3200. Students in CDM 3200 deal with more complex image making, and printing challenges, building on CDM 2200 Digital Art I.
