Assignment 1 Task 1 The hardware I will need to acquire my image in my PC system will be: Digital Camera: The digital camera will take a real time picture of an image and then turn it into a digital picture. This is the most modern day way of creating the image and I will need to use a USB port to transfer it to the computer. I will need this because it allows me to choose an image of whatever I want and from whatever angle etc. With the digital camera, it allows you to use so many features like light reductant, flash, frames for the picture and many more.

Kingston HYPERX 4GB (2X2GB Product Description - Kingston HyperX memory - 4 GB ( 2 x 2 GB ) - DIMM 240-pin - DDR2 Storage Capacity - 4 GB ( 2 x 2 GB ) Upgrade Type - Generic Technology - DDR2 SDRAM Form Factor - DIMM 240-pin Memory Speed - 1066 MHz ( PC2-8500 ) Data Integrity Check - Non-ECC Latency Timings - CL5 ( 5-5-5-15 ) Features - Heat sink , unbuffered Supply Voltage - 2.2 V Lead Plating - Gold Manufacturer Warranty - Limited lifetime warranty ( Germany, Austria and France - 10 years ) USB: I would need a USB port for the digital camera to transfer the images over to the pc since I am not using a memory card slot, and that most digital cameras these days use internal memory to store the images. The USB would be a necessary part of the computer.

Constraints When working on the breif given to you by the client you must be aware of the constraints that are imposed, these are the following factors; * house style * image size * intended use (print, video, web page, etc.) * file size (especially for downloading) * production costs (how time and money can be invested into completing the brief) * timescale (how quickly the brief must be completed) * output media (CD, paper, LCD, CRT, etc.) Client Requirements Physical Image Size - 400 x 200 Colour Depth - 16 bit Image Resolution - 1920 x 1080 File Size - Less than 5mb File Format - JPEG For the logo I used the outer glow in photoshop to give the glowing effect to the image this makes the image stand out. The image above shows the outerglow process. The logo meets all the requirments that the client and the user specified. This image shows the logo on a lava lamp, and the logo really stands out on the lamp which was required in the user specification. Also the image is a jpeg and under 5mb. In this image the logo really stands out because it is on a white lamp again which was required in the user specification, the image is also jpeg and less than 5mb. ...read more.
