You will be  handing in a digital file of all your assignments.  Finishes only not your sketches. This is  along with the original artwork you bring in and place up on the wall at  crits.  You are submitting 2  scans of each assignment, a hi-res and a lo-res.   Your low-resolution files should be derived from your original hi resolution file.   When you’ve finished your scan (color corrected, etc.)  burn your images onto a CD and make sure you test the disk  to make sure it works. On the CD please print please your full name  and email address  in permanent marker. Place your cd in a case or  envelope and hand it in to me.   Below are the specs for your scans:

The hi-res image:

  • RGB
  • Tiff
  • Flattened-NO LAYERS, all type should be rasterized (converted to art and flattened)
  • 350 dpi
  • Dimensions of the scan should be the same size as your original piece. ex.  A 24″ X 36″ painting = a 24″ X 36″ digital image
  • 8-bit , 16-bit

In photoshop go up to thge menu, select “File”  -and select “File info”.   You will get a dialogue box  that looks like this:

Space

Fill in Your name, the title of the piece or what assignment it was for, my name, the semester, and the class and your e-mail or some kind of contact info.

Jane Doe, “I Hate Squid”, pen, ink and collage, 10″ x 16″, Sept.  2010, Les Kanturek, instructor, Soph. Concepts”


The Lo-res image:

  • RGB
  • Tiff
  • Flattened-NO LAYERS, all type should be rasterized (converted to art and flattened)
  • 72 dpi
  • Dimensions of the scan should be the same size as your original piece. ex.  A 24″ X 36″ painting = a 24″ X 36″ digital image
  • 8-bit

File Naming

Label the actual tiff as follows:

last name_first name_HWTitle_lr_Les.jpg (ex: smith_john_POVSquid_lr_Les.tiff)

The “lr” stands for “low-res”- hr- “high-res”

Do not put “untitled” for your work, if it does not have a title then use the name of the assignment    or a short descriptive name (i.e. “Invisible Man”).

You should archive all of your art and have a digital copy of everything you do.
