Do I really need Adobe?

Short answer? No.

But there is a reason so many people have Adobe and love using it so much.

With Adobe creative cloud you have exces to some of the most used programs in the business like Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, After effects, Premier Pro and many more.

What does each of these programs do?

  • Photoshop does what the name suggest. It helps you edit your photo’s. Adobe Lightroom can also help with light settings for the photo’s. These two programs work great together.
  • InDesign is for making posters, books, flyers, and almost any publications that are printed.
  • Illustrator is perfect for making Illustrations, infographic and logo’s of all sorts. But also to change colors of logo’s is needed. Here is a tutorial on how to do that.
  • After effects work to animate that illustration you just made in Illustrator.
  • Premier Pro is great for video editing. I edit my tutorials always in Premier.

Tutorials

I will be honest the Adobe programs are not always easy to master. But if you do know the basics of one program then you kind of know all of them. They are not extremely hard but watching a few tutorials can’t hurt anyone.

On tutsplus.com there are so many free tutorials you can follow to master all these programs that does not cost you anything.

On the Adobe website are also many tutorials for each of there programs.

Explore Breda

In the first few weeks of our first year, we got the task to explore Breda. And make a 2D design of 30cmx30cm about it.

So I took a few photo’s of the lovely art that you can find in Breda.

While I went through the city I noticed that the city was quite clean for a city of this size. But it was mostly clean in the parts that people see. When I went to the parts where people live and you only go if you need to be there it is less clean.

After that, I found a site which showed soil quality in the city. I found out that the ground that our school is on is potentially serious. I can hear you wonder what that really means. (I still do not know this.) To find an answer I send an e-mail to the municipality which sends me a file with information about the property. Unfortunately, it did not really help. So I worked with what I had and made the following illustration.
