Introduction In this course you will working with images, both bitmap and vector-based, both still and moving. Most will be designed to be presented on the Web using HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). The primary software you will using is Photoshop CS, CS2, or CS 3 (including ImageReady) and Illustrator CS, CS2, or CS3. These programs will be central to almost all of your work. In addition you will be using Flash MX, 8, or CS3 for animations as well as simple animations done in Photoshop. The best software for designing "what you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) Web sites is Dreamweaver, but you may use a text editor, if you like to handcode. Both are available on all the lab computers. Please do not use Frontpage. The software we are using is the industry standard and although there is other software that can do many of the same jobs, I encourage you to use these so you will be familiar with the most widely used tools for making and showing images on the computers. Required text: None Recommended text: Adobe Photoshop CS3 for Photographers By Martin Evening, ISBN 0240520289 (This text and other guides for the software described above are also available in an electronic format from the Penn State Libraries in the eBooks list under the heading Safari.) Some of these texts are not current with the software in the labs, but they will be sufficent for what we are doing. If you have problems please email. Grading policy Your grade for the course will be primarily based on the quality of your individual work on your personal sites, and your responses on ANGEL to classmates. Due to the compressed nature of a summer class, you will have a two day grace period after the work is due to turn it in with no reduction in grade. After that will mean a reduction of 25 percent. Each assignment receives a grade the week after it is submitted. University Policies and Rules Guidelines states that academic integrity is the pursuit of scholarly activity in an open, honest and responsible manner. Academic integrity is a basic guiding principle for all academic activity at The Pennsylvania State University, and all members of the University community are expected to act in accordance with this principle. Consistent with this expectation, the University's Code of Conduct states that all students should act with personal integrity, respect other students' dignity, rights and property, and help create and maintain an environment in which all can succeed through the fruits of their efforts. Academic integrity includes a commitment not to engage in or tolerate acts of falsification, misrepresentation or deception. Such acts of dishonesty violate the fundamental ethical principles of the University community and compromise the worth of work completed by others. Syllabus
