Minor Project: Famous Landmarks in UAE

United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of seven emirates, and was established on 2 December 1971. The constituent emirates are Abu Dhabi (which serves as the capital), Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain. In 2013, the UAE’s population was 9.2 million, of which 1.4 million are Emirati citizens and 7.8 million are expatriates.

Indesign

This post explains how I opened a new document and did a simple layout with text and photos by using InDesign. First, I opened a 2-page document that is A4 in size, with 2 columns. Filled the columns with placeholder text . Then copied the following image and pasted in the center of the page. I Adjusted the size of the image so that it will be small and text can be seen around it.

Then I text wrapped the image. Once I have done that, I exported the page as an image file (.JPG). It is a helpful program for writing papers.

My assignment was to combine three images and provide text. I used Photoshop to help me finish my assignment. I used the tools that would spare me time. Below are the images I was required to use:

Final result: Save Earth

I made the text simple, but with a lot of meaning. We should realize that if we kept harming our environment for money; then in one day, we will realize that we can’t eat money.

In previous class, I used background eraser tool to remove the background. I took a while to get to understand how the tool works. I had to adjust the tolerance to make it easier on me and manage to secure the flower with erasing it.

The Photoshop process was hard although I used different tools because of the small spaces and variety of colors between the tree branches. I used very low tolerance for the background eraser tool. I used different layer and fill them with different colors to give the picture some effects.

Today, I practiced on Magnetic Lesso tool in Photoshop.

Using this tool to select the sunflower takes time, but the tool is more effective than magic wand tool. I used eyedropper tool to help me select the colors I desired from the sunflower to put it in the background. Finally, I used gradient tool to full the background.
