PDA in Digital Imaging - FREE Course At Wick
10th November 2009
As reported in July this year, The North Highland College (NHC) and The Wick Society formed a partnership to digitise the Johnson Collection, owned by the Wick Society.
The Johnson collection is an invaluable historical photographic archive in excess of 50,000 glass-plate negatives taken by successive generations of the Johnson family between 1863 and 1976 capturing the social and industrial history of Caithness, in particular the impact of the herring fishing industry.
With the assistance of funding from the Highland LEADER programme, NHC, in association with Wick Society is offering for the first time a Professional Development
Award consisting of 2 higher national units in digital imaging: Bitmap & Vector and Bitmap techniques.
Using the latest computer technology, learners will scan, edit, index and store Johnson Collection negatives to create a library of digital images. Designed for people with an interest in investigating digital technologies, this course will develop your ability
to create and share digital images to be proud of. The units introduce learners to the creation of digital images for use within a variety of computer applications such
as website, social networking site, digital interactive applications and electronic documents. It will enable learners to acquire, create, edit and manipulate digital
images and teach the principles of screen based graphics, digital imaging software, acquisition and manipulation of graphics.
If you're already a keen amateur digital photographer, this course should appeal. The course will develop your technical, visual and creative skills. This course is based
exclusively on digital imaging technologies where you are encouraged to develop conceptual thinking, critical analysis, creative problem solving and technical skills.
You will have access to the latest desktop computing technology, and a large digital photographic resource.
