Print a proof of your publication

Due Wednesday, May 12th.

Wednesday’s class (the 12th) is our last meeting before our final on May 19th. Everyone is required to send a high resolution press quality pdf to the instructor today, Monday May 10th. Your files will likely be too large to send using the normal process of attaching to an email, so you may need to use a service like You Send It, a website where you can upload large files. The recipient is notified by email with a link to download the large file. Simple, done.

All files should be sent to the instructor, nancy@desktopdesign.net. They will be reviewed and printed and brought to class for you on Wednesday the 12th with feedback so that you are prepared to print and bind for the final next Wednesday, the 19th.

Adobe CS5 for Students and Faculty

Moorpark College students and faculty can get an outrageously cool deal on Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium. The link is for Mac, but it’s available for the same price for Windows platform. If you decide to look at the academic pricing on the new CS5, take special note of the variety of CS5 offerings. Each collection serves up a different mix of programs. For example, CS5-Design Premium includes InDesign, making it the ideal suite of programs for graphic design for print and on the web.  You can see a comparison chart detailing the contents of each of the CS5 collections on the Adobe website.

The Foundation for California Community Colleges’ site, www.collegebuys.org, has unbeatable prices on Adobe and Microsoft software for community college students and faculty, plus more great buys too numerous to mention. Check it out for yourself.
