Abstract:


    Description
    The concepts behind solutions to 10 common frustrations faced by virtually all artists and designers who use computers, such as:   

    “Why does my printout look so different from the image on my screen?”   

    “What resolution should I use for scanning?”   

    “What exactly does interpolation mean and how is it related to gradients, 3D shading, and animation?”   

    These concepts were taught from an artist-and-designer point of view using visual explanations and live demonstrations of popular software packages. Attendees also reviewed relevant work by practicing computer artists who have harnessed this new medium in creative, effective ways.
