Editing process of my magazine
Editing process of my magazineCover page
Firstly I added a black square as my back ground then, then I added my picture of Ricky in I cut him out and blurred the edges so it looked like a clean cut. Then I used the brush tool to add effect to the back ground creating like a lighting effect.
Secondly, I added the title Revolution with the text Gang wolf. Then I added the beat headphones as the N in my title to create a better a effect. After this I created to red boarders one below the title and one underneath. I then put my secondary title underneath with a stoke effect on it to make it stand out. And then i put my free gift at the top, again with a stroke effect.Then i sorted out my coverlines. I put them on the left side of my main image because i think that it worked better than trying to fit either side. I applied a outer glow effect to each of my coverlines to stand out.
Finally, I added a red box around my main coverline to make sure that it stood out to the read. I changed the opacity level so it made it easier for the text to be seen and it didn't cover my image up fully.Contents page
Firstly, i added all of my boards so i had the same colour system in my magazine and i knew how much space i would have left. I created thesre by using the box tool and changing the colour of them.Secondly i added my masthead into my contents page by using the text box and i created the article numbers. I did this first so i would know where my article titles and information would go.
I then filled in all my coverlines next to the article numbers, i made sure that they lined up next to article number and that they wasnt over lapping.Finally, i added all my images to my contents page. I did my main image in Photoshop and imported it to quark. I only adjusted its colour i made it brighter and put a hint of red into it.
Quark Double page spread
Firstly, i had to create the masthead of my double page spread in photoshop and convert it over to quark. I had to save it as a JPG and import it to quark.
Secondly, I started adding my images to my double page spread. I had to cut and edit my main image in Photoshop and import it to quark. I adjusted the brightness to my image so it didnt look plain and boring. Then i added my second images of the beat head phones which i also did in Photoshop. Then to stop my double page spread from looking plain and boring i had the three strips at the bottom of the magazine to help it stand out and not just be a white space left there.
Finally, i added a text back in the empty space and added the text to my double page spread, all of the interview i wrote up. And i also added quotes that Dj Ricky had said to around his picture
