<ul><li><p>EDITING OF IMAGES FOR ANCILLARY </p><p>PRODUCTS</p></li><li><p>To organise my images that I may use, I put them into a separate folder on my desktop so that they were easily accessible. </p></li><li><p>To develop my photo editing skills, I used the program Pic Monkey, as its </p><p>free and easy to use. I used a previously edited photograph for the background and placed the image of Siobhan on top. I simply erased the background surrounding her. I then </p><p>made the image into the dimensions I would use on the digipak. </p><p>I wanted to experiment with borders, so I </p><p>placed a geometric square and added the multiply effect, and I am impressed by the outcome. Although for </p><p>my products to tie together, I think I need </p><p>to add more pink tones. </p></li><li><p>These are some more edits I developed on Pic Monkey. I like how the circle frames her, therefore making her the main focus of the page. I also began experimenting with the </p><p>placement and colour of Flumes official logo. I like the Multiply effect so that you can see parts of the background through the text. I dont think I will use this image, </p><p>but I gained valuable skills from editing this image.</p></li><li><p>Here are some more outcomes in which I was </p><p>experimenting with different colour borders and outlines. I like how they are all framing Siobhan. The psychedelic </p><p>background also ties in well with her marble print dress that I chose for her to wear. </p></li><li><p>This was another edit I produced to develop my skills on Pic Monkey. I used </p><p>my kaleidoscope effect that I made within Final Cut Pro, and used it as an overlay on </p><p>an image of Siobhan. I dont think this image is particularly successful as the </p><p>composition doesnt look right, but I like the effect it gives &amp; I think it would tie in </p><p>with the aesthetic of my music video. </p></li><li><p>This is my final image I have chosen for the front cover of my digipak. Her intense stare into the camera </p><p>works well and makes her look like a strong powerful individual. Again, I have experimented with placing my </p><p>kaleidoscope image in the background to add another </p><p>dynamic. It is also fairly conventional to have an image of </p><p>the lead singer or band on the front of a digipak.</p></li><li><p>This print screen shows the editing of placing Flumes official logo onto the front cover image of Siobhan. As I placed the original JPG image, I couldnt remove the </p><p>background, so I brought the text into photoshop &amp; removed it there. I then saved the image as a PNG file so that the background was still removed. This made it easier for </p><p>me to edit the text on Pic Monkey. </p></li><li><p>These are the stages I went through to complete my edit for the front cover. Firstly I used an effect on the website for light beams to appear to spread around her. I chose this as it makes her stand out further &amp; </p><p>therefore makes her the main focal point. I also made the title go behind her head, I did this by placing the image and simply using the eraser tool to accurately remove parts of the letters I didnt need. For the final image on the left, I made the title smaller and added a dot either side, as Flume sometimes uses this as </p><p>his official logo on his music albums. I also made the FLUME writing in a block purple to tie in with the </p><p>shadows around Siobhan. </p></li><li><p>These are the four images I have chosen to go inside of my digipak. They all aesthetically tie together due to their colour and shapes. I plan for the inside of my digipak to be darker than the </p><p>outside to reflect the light and dark within my music video. This is why these images will work well as they are predominantly red/pink and black. I will put two images on one panel to add a </p><p>different dynamic and create layers for a more interesting look. </p></li><li><p>This is the editing process I went through to place these two images on one panel. For a background I used my kaleidoscope image as a current theme through my designs. I then </p><p>placed the two photos of Siobhan on as overlays, so I can edit the blending modes so they will merge with the background to create a continuous and professional looking image. </p></li><li><p>The above image I edited to see what the outcome would be like, but the image is too bright and doesnt tie in well with the others I have used. The images on the left show how I have experimented with the placement of the top </p><p>photo of Siobhan. I have decided to use the bottom image as the light and colours flow more easily as your eye </p><p>follows the image. </p></li><li><p>These are my two final images for the inside of my digipak. Using Pic Monkey to edit these was simple and easy to navigate meaning I am happy with the results. My use of colour gels in the photoshoot has meant that all the colours tie in together and continue </p><p>the trippy aesthetic. I also think these images support that my video is a concept video, as they only contain the main artist in a variety of poses. The kaleidoscope effect also connects these images with the music video and initial design of the magazine advert. </p></li></ul>
