Processing Images in PHOTOSHOP


Photoshop provides more options for improving your photo and it is on the lab
computers. After downloading to iPhoto on the macs in the lab, select the images you
wish to modify and drag them to a desktop or to a folder with your initials. Be sure to
t
rash your photos after you select and email the final version to the conference.


Open Photoshop and within Photoshop use File: Open. Browse for your image.



Go to Image: Image size: and notice the size and resolution of the image.



This picture i
s still too large. Notice it is 1.69M.

You can change the size of your picture in several ways but crop it first.

Be sure the rectangle tool is highlighted


Outline the area you wish to keep and click Image: Crop



Once you have the area you wish to
keep, click on Image: Adjustments: Auto color to see
if the computer can enhance the image for you. You can also adjust color on your own
Image: Adjustment: levels. Once you are happy with the area and color save the image


Recheck the image size, most l
ikely it will still be too large.




To reduce the size, start by changing the image width and height, this will provide you
with a way to keep images similar in size. The shape of each cropped image is important;
similarly sized images will make a more
attractive figure.


If your image is still too large, you can change the resolution. Usually a resolution of
about 100 will bring a cropped image to a reasonable size (kb).
