Scanning Images for Web Design

by

Introduction

Scanning is part of the designer's toolbox. It is one of many ways of capturing and creating assets to include in electronic documents such as web pages. Images-whether the are photographs, original art, charts, diagrams or objects become part of the overall message and tone of a web page.

This lesson will focus on web page planning, basic design, and layout of uploading images to web pages created by the student. Drawing material (colored paper, pencils, glue scissors) will be available for students wishing to create original artwork to upload.

The instructor will start with a demonstration of scanning. Students produce an individual body of work; electronic files and folders with original materials.

Students will produce a file folder with original images, photocopies of images, or original artwork, scanned and 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.
