All the places on the world wide web we recommend you visit
Check out these great places where you can find all kinds of info that will help you create your yearbook.
Column 1 is Jostens and Photoshop related. Column 2 is general computer help and photography related, column three is Adobe related and column four is all about design and graphics.
Of course you know where this link takes you. Right to Yearbook Avenue. If you are using YearTech Online you can start desiging. If you use InDesign you will find all the info about your school and your yearbook on YBA!
Your source for all things yearbook. Send your staff here to find out all kinds of info. Especially there is a link to buying your yearbooks online.
There is no better resource on all that is Photoshop than the home of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Once you become a member (and it is worth every penny of the $99 per year membership fee) you get complete access to their website, including Help Desk tech support, thousands of tutorials, a subscription to their bi-monthly magazine and a whole lot more.
A free, weekly podcast devoted to teaching you all that is Photoshop. Runs about 30-40 minutes and if you have staffers who love photography and digital photo editing, this is for them. New episodes each week but all the past ones are available as well.
Another great site that's chock full of Photoshop goodness. Tutorials, videos and more.
Still another great site about the world's best digital photo software. If you can't find what you are after on this one or the previous three links, it's probably not out there.
If you use a Mac, then click this link to go to Apple Tech Support. It's a direct link.From there you can contact them for tech support on your computer or their software or any other product that Apple creates.
If you use a PC, then click this link to go to Microsoft's Tech Support. It's also a direct link. Unless they have changed it again. They do that a lot.
If you suspect your internet connection has slowed down (or is really bad to start with) then run the SpeakEasy Speed test. Just click on the server nearest to you and wait a few seconds (or if your connection is really slow, minutes) It will tell you how fast your critical download/upload speed is. Most school servers run between 10 and 20 megabytes on downloads and 4-5 megabyte for uploads.
Considering the purchase of a digital camera? Before you spend a single cent, you have to see this site. It compares and contrasts just about every piece of digital photo equipment from simple point and shoot cameras to flash units to ultra-high end DSLRs.
Not so much looking for Photoshop as just digital photography help? Then check out Fred Miranda. His site is the place to meet online if you shoot a Canon. And there's lots of great non-Canon photo info as well. If you are into digital, this is what you want.
Very much like FredMiranda.com with less about Canon cameras and more focused on Nikons.
Need help with Photoshop, InDesign or any of Adobe's applications? This link goes directly to their support page. Links to forums and more can be accessed on this link. If you need any help with an Adobe product, go here.
Want to see some of the coolest designs ever? This is the place. Designers from all over the world show off their best stuff.
This is a great place to find free and paid plug-ins, extensions and scripts for all Adobe applications. Sorry, it you have to purchase one, they only take credit cards, not purchase orders.
Superb coverage of all things Adobe. A website (that used to be a magazine) that covers all Adobe applications. Tons of tutorials on Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.
If your staff is getting serious about InDesign or if you have a staffer who says they want to be a graphic designer when they graduate, this site is a must see. Consider subscribing to their digital-only magazine. But sign up for their weekly free tips as well.
Their name says it all. Hands down, this is the best magazine ever printed for design. Available in digital & print. Digital is a wonderful teaching tool. But the magazine in either format is a must-have for any graphic designer.
Isn't that a great name? The site is exactly that--a jumping off point for any information about design. The best links page for graphic designers.
What if you don't need a resource, you need an idea. Get your creative juices flowing at Ideabook. Also created by Chuck Green, Ideabook has design ideas, insights and links.
Chuck Green's daily (or almost daily) design blog. He is one busy guy. But he is also the GURU of design. There is no better resource online for the graphic designer than his three sites.
If you need to learn just about any software in the the computing world, then lynda.com will probably have an online course you can take. Or if you want to get your staff up to speed on Photoshop or InDesign, this is the place to come.
Online Training for Photographers, Graphic Designers, Illustrators, Multimedia Artists, and Hobbyist. Less software covered than Lynda but more in depth in what they cover.
