Well – round 1 of finals are COMPLETE. Both Photoshop and Photography exams took place yesterday – final projects are due next week. I’m not worried about the photography bit – that’s been completed for a while now. The Photoshop project… er…. I’m still not panicking, sort of. Exams were fine – well the photography exam was fine. Photoshop – let’s just say that in the beginning of the final I totally forgot to convert all of my images into smart objects… so at the end when checking my work, everything looks slightly pixelated when blown up.
Nothing says I feel awesome! after sitting a 3.5 hour photoshop final, when at the end you realize your image is pixelated because of an omission 3.5 hours before.
Oh well – while I definitely wasn’t feeling like a Smart Object, I will NEVER EVER forget to convert my images into Smart Objects. Post-exam nachos + beer with a friend and fellow Gunfighter spouse was exactly what was needed.
Today… I’m NOT DOING ANY PHOTOSHOP work. Period. The gym + a long drive in the open-air jeep with H to check out a horse farm in Ramona for her daughter’s birthday party sounds super. I love living in Southern California, and any opportunity to escape to the mountains (even the low-lying ones) is welcomed. If N were here, the jeep would be at work with him – so this seems like a good trade-off. He’s back Sunday, and I can’t wait.
Though I gripe about Photoshop, I really DO love my class and have learned SO MUCH. Final website project due next week, and I guarantee that Smart Objects will be utilized. Yeah.
Have a great weekend – GOOD LUCK to my triathlete friends who are racing!
