Digital Camera for Web Design



Digital cameras are part of the aresenal of tools web designers need to use to produce oriignal images on web sites. Although many types of cameras are available, there are common elements in their use that are important for developing a sound foundation in the design of a web site.

This lesson will focus on web page planning, basic design, and layout of uploading images to web pages created by the student. The instructor will start with a demonstration of a digital camera. Students practice using the camera and then save their images to the computer.

Students produce an individual body of work; electronic files and folders with original materials.

Students will produce a file folder of digital photograph images saved as a set of electronic image files, and an annotated document with all images. These images will be used for current and future web design projects.
