So far, my presentation is involving Photoshop more than I thought it would. My book is an awkward shape for the scanners I have access to (being about an inch wider/taller than the scanner beds), so all of the whole page images I’ll be using in my presentation (as backgrounds) involved a series of scans, pieced together in Photoshop. The samples here were scanned in three pieces. Tonight I am thankful for arbitrary rotating and masks!
Tomorrow is my PowerPoint day. I have my presentation outline written, but I haven’t yet taken the time to figure out how to make PowerPoint work for me. During class last Thursday, we read an article that David Byrne (of Talking Heads) wrote: Learning to Love PowerPoint. He seems quite excited about the program, but I’m not entirely convinced I will be.
