Datos persoal Formador e Titor
The creation and manipulation of images are the most common tasks in digital creative processes. The aim of this course is for participants to acquire the basic notions and skills for image processing, from retouching or editing them to creating them from scratch in a new composition with free forms, so that they acquire not only basic notions about editing programmes, but also specific aspects of graphic design.
Work will be done mainly with GIMP, although there will be references to other image editing programmes, which, like GIMP, are also open-source software, such as Krita, Scribus and Inkscape, among others. Above all, the aim is to get the user used to the particular interface of Gimp while at the same time reviewing the most common tools and the fundamental concepts necessary to be able to understand any documentation, workshop or subsequent tutorial on these programmes.
