Digital Image Manipulation Investigation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

ICT: INVESTIGATION REPORT Digital Image Manipulation February 2006 In our ICT unit, Art Gallery, we have had to do a bit of research on Digital Image Manipulation. We will then be creating our own. In this report, you will probably learn something new about the world of Digital Image Manipulation. What is Digital Image Manipulation? Digital Image Manipulation is altering, trimming, colouring, layering, basically changing an image. This may be done using computer software of programs like Adobe Photoshop. Digitally Manipulated Images are sometimes made for good purposes like advertising. Sometimes, users of Photoshop will change and/or recreate images to offend others, purposefully. The final result of an image that has gone through this process sometimes are so well done and are of very high quality so we question them as to whether or not they are genuine. Since when has Digital Image Manipulation been used? Digital Image Manipulation has been around since photography started but now Digital Image Manipulation is becoming more and more popular. This is mainly due to the falling rates of the software and programs needed to alter an image as one likes. ...read more.

Make the object that you want to be focused the first thing that the viewer would see. Analysis of one product This Digitally Manipulated Image shows dry, cracked land, a sunset, and a translucent hand conjuring up water from the index. The water is in the form of an upward whirlpool. The sky looks as if a storm is going to break out and the sun is shining through the black clouds. This image is an advertisement for Adobe Photoshop. The positive aspect about this image is that they used the advertisement to show exactly what Adobe Photoshop can do to an image with a few touches here and there. The negative aspect about this image is that the hand could be 'God' but not all religions believe in this God who would send water down to earth, when needed, from his fingertips. I like this image because the colours are very contrasting and the blue and yellow stand out very much. The hand is also very well done. If I had to change or improve on this product, I would make the land more visible so that it is easier to understand why the hand is sending water down to earth. ...read more.

Conclusion

Differences: This image is different to the rest because the background is a light colour. I think that dark or light coloured backgrounds make the focus stand out more. Positives: The positive aspects of this image are that the strawberries and the kiwis are red and green. On the colour wheel, red and green are complimentary colours, which means that they form a strong combination. Negatives: This image makes me want to eat this 'fruit' even though it doesn't exist! Also, in a close up of this image, the strawberry skins look very much like plastic. Specification Based on what I have learnt about Digital Image Manipulation from writing this report, I have come up with a list of Specifications for my future products. My product should be a clear image, not blurry. My product should stand out from the background - the background should be light or dark in colour and not the same colour as the main objects. I should try to make my product in such a way that it doesn't offend anybody. My product should encourage bad actions or words. My product will look good and be visible from faraway, therefore it must be colourful. ...read more.
