Multimedia NAB 2 – Graphics Task

Navigate to the Computing->Higher->Multimedia->NAB2 folder on the pupil share.

  • Using Photoshop CS3 merge the hot air balloon and landscape to make a new graphic.

Multimedia NAB

Took place today and signaled the end of the course.

Remember there will be an exam on the Tuesday we return from holiday, it will cover the Multimedia unit as well as a question on each of software development and computer systems. The resit for the NAB will be on the Wednesday.

The two weeks when we return will be spent on Past Paper questions.  Please make sure that over the Holidays you attempt all the papers I gave you . This will allow you to create a list of “problem topics” we can then use these in class for revision or to create the FAQ on the blog.

Please keep commenting on the blog over the holidays and feel free to drop me an email via Glow. I will be checking this during the holidays.

WARNING!! I know computing is the last exam for a lot of you, that DOES NOT mean you can leave studying for it till the last minute. Little and often is my motto, if you haven’t started then START.
