Read these important notes regarding the interface: The left part of the Options Bar contains a series of "Persona" icons: Changing the Persona will affect the overall interface by changing which tools and panels are shown. For certain purposes, one persona may be helpful over another. But for this course, we will stay on the default Photo Persona (the pink icon). If you accidentally click into another Persona, click the Cancel button to return to the Photo Persona mode.Look to the right of the screen and you will see the Color Panel and the Layers Panel. You will be using these 2 panels a lot of the time while working on your images. Both the Color Panel and Layers Panel are parts of panel groups that contain tabs to switch between panels: If one of these side panels is ever accidentally removed or hidden, you can re-open it by clicking View > Studio and then selecting the missing panel. This screenshot shows how to re-open the Color panel for example.

5 Activity 2 Basic image processing In this activity, you will learn how to open an existing image, switch between images, zoom in and out of an image and how to modify the colours of an image. 1. Switch out of the Affinity program and open File Explorer. 2. Navigate to your cs1033 folder on your memory stick (it should have been created last week) and create a folder called lab02 . Within that, create a sub-folder called images . 3. Open: . Download these files into cs1033/lab02/images . 4. In Affinity, click File > Open. In the Open window, navigate to your memory stick and then to cs1033/lab02/images and open nature.jpg . 5. Notice that this is opened in a new tab, not replacing or removing the empty canvas that was previously created. They use tabs similar to modern browsers so you can easily switch between different documents as needed. We'll just work on nature.jpg in this activity so stay in this tab. 6. At the bottom right, below the Layers panel, you should see a panel called Navigator. 7. Drag the Zoom slider back and forth to change the zoom levels. Drag it all the way to 1000% (the maximum). You can actually see each individual pixel at this zoom level! Bring it back down to a reasonable level, around 50-70%.

6 8. Near the top middle, look for 4 coloured circle icons in the Options Bar. They are used for automatic image colour adjustments. In order from left to right, they are: Auto Levels, Auto Contrast, Auto Colors, Auto White Balance. 9. Hover over the Auto White Balance icon and look closely at the white sky after you left-click (click) your mouse. The sky becomes yellowish from this adjustment. If you missed it, press Ctrl+Z to undo the action and then try it again while closely watching the white sky. Once you see it, hit Ctrl+Z to return to the original image again.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
