Detailed Project Instructions:
For this assignment you will be creating a PSD file in photoshop. First open the file that is in the FTP called 4.jpg. This is a scanned image of a catalog page for client. You will need to create a PSD file that is 9.5 inches width by 11 inches tall. The resolution will be 300. The main idea of this assignment is that you will be creating a PSD version of the scanned catalog page that can be fully edited in the future and used for a new print of the catalog. It must look exactly, or as closely as possible, like the scanned page ([url removed, login to view]). Match fonts as closely as you can.
Once the assignment is complete you must upload the psd file, and call it '[url removed, login to view]'. You will also need to upload any fonts that you used on the file. This means that every single font that you use must be uploaded to the 'fonts used' folder. This allows for easy editing in the future.
For an example of another existing PSD catalog page that was created see the FTP file called page2.psd. Take notice of the white border on the page. Also, because the PSD file you're creating must be able to be edited easily in the future the layers need to be very organized to allow for easy editing.
The checklist below will be used for reviewing your submitted project when its complete. Be sure that you double check that everything listed in the checklist, as well as in the details above, is totally complete.
__ PSD File looks exactly, or very very similar, to [url removed, login to view]
__ PSD file is correct size/resolution. (9.5 inches wide X 11 inches tall. 300 resolution)
__ PSD file is in same format as example file ([url removed, login to view]). This means that the file has the white border, etc.
__ File was uploaded to correct directory (same place that [url removed, login to view] is)
__ ALL fonts used in the PSD file have been uploaded to the 'fonts used' folder

Projects can be claimed in a number of ways:
1. email and say "I want to claim this project (*Title of project*). I can complete it in full according to the project details. Please give me the confirmation to start". A project manager will then email you back and say either to go ahead and start or that another designer has claimed the project.
2. Use AOL Instant Messenger to send an instant message to the project managers screen name asking for permission to start. This is usually the best means to claim a project since the instant messenger is on most of the day. The project manager will get back to you asap.
