Course Introduction 課程簡介

在辦公室中工作,我們可能已经熟悉 Word, Excel 及 PowerPoint 的運作。但如何令平平无奇的文件增添姿彩,令到上司或客戶對你的工作更能令眼相看,往往是设计包装的问题。所以如能撥出時間,學習一些設計理論再配合先進的繪圖軟件,便能輕易製作出精美的辦公室文件,圖像及簡報。

Adobe Creative Cloud 是業界標準的圖像設計軟件, Photoshop是針對點陣圖(相片)的設計軟件。 Illustrator是針對向量圖(幾何圖)的設計軟件。 Indesgin則是針對排版的設計軟件。

三大軟件的應用範圍相當廣泛,如相片掃描,相片特效,相片合成,圖像設計,公司Logo設計,公司宣傳品設計,網頁設計,甚至於任何藝術創作均可利用以上軟件完成。專業設計師則利用設計理論再配合以上工具便能製作出千變萬化的作品。
