The purpos of the course “Computer Graphics II – Adobe“ is to make students familiar with making of 2D graphics design for the printed, electronical and multimedial graphics. The classes serve the purpose of intensifying of work with both vectorial and bitmap files in the platforms: Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and gain fundamentals in Adobe Indesign. The acquired knowledge will be also used for a defence of semestral design projects by multimedial presentations. The course follows to previous courses of both computer graphics and modelling, and extends feasibility of the created presentations and producing the new ideas in 2D graphics. The course complements the study courses ‘Computer Graphic I – CorelDraw/Adobe’, ‘Computer Modelling – Rhinoceros 3D’ and ‘Computer Visualization and Animation 1′ (in B-PDS studies). The elements of work with 2D/3D graphic and knowledge of working with CorelDraw, Adobe and Rhinoceros 3D are supposed. These classes serve the purpose of intensifying knowledge of work with both the vectorial (Adobe Illustrator) and the bitmaps (Adobe Photoshop) files. Creation of multipages’ documents and printed matters (Adobe InDesign).
