1) No matter the photo editing tool photographers use, it is important to perform which of the following on every image (it can be more than one)
a. Basic image toning, which may include as little as a tweak to white balance, overall exposure and contrast.
b. Cropping the image
c. Slugging the image
d. Sizing the image
e. Adding captions and or tags to the image to help organize the image in your archive or the news organization's archive
2) Individual photographers have very different workflows. No matter your specific workflow it is important to do which of the following:
a. Back-up your working. You should create a second set of all your image on an external drive or secondary computers
b. Have clear and consistent naming conventions for you images and folders
c. Work in a logical order. For example, it doesn't make sense to size your images (300dpi) before you crop your images
d. Adjust exposure and color correct each of your final images to compensate for the limited dynamic range of digital equipment without enhancing the image
e. Slug, caption and keyword your edited images
3) TRUE or FALSE: to adjust the horizon line in an image means to straighten the image so that the picture elements that define the horizon are truly horizontal in the frame.
4) Which of the following is true of images size and resolution?
Dots per inch (DPI) means the same thing as pixels per inch (PPI)
An image that is 100 dpi and 10 inches long along the longest edge is the same file size as an image that is 200 dpi and five inches long along the longest edge.
Editors might ask you for an image that is 300 dpi. That images should be 600 pixels long along the longest edge?
You can always make an image bigger but you can't make it smaller.
Generally speaking images for the web can be smaller than images for print. Smaller images will take up less space on the server or hard drive and load faster onto a page.
4) Which of the following is true of RAW images?
They are proprietary. Meaning, Canon's RAW format is different than Nikon's and not all browsers and photo software support all RAW formats
RAW files are very large and data rich, making it possible to adjust color and exposure values in editing much more dramatically than is possible with a JPEG
RAW images feature compression to making it easier to work with their large size.
The workflow for most photographers who shoot RAW is to edit in RAW and then copy or export a JPEG for display or presentation.
In the 'Image Quality' menu option of most cameras you will have the optoin to shoot RAW.
5) It’s ethically OK to do which of the follow:
a. To lighten and darken areas of the image to make them more easily viewable as long as it doesn’t change the meaning or tone of an image
b. Remove that unwanted homeless guy from edge of your nice image of the dog run in Riverside Park
c. Adjust the color of an image to compensate for the camera's limited ability to calibrate for white in difficult lighting situations.
d. Use the crop tool to remove distracting graphic elements from the edge of the frame. The edge of a chair or half a sign, for example
e. All of the above
