Post Production Assignments (PPA) IB


Production is when you are doing image capture.  Post Production is the editing done after image capture.  In photography this is usually done in the darkroom or using digital editing software such as Photoshop, Lightroom, or Photopea.

The task for these Post Production Assignments (PPAs) is to show your work before and after the editing and show a screen shot of your image open in the editing program.

The order in which these need to be placed in your Google Photos album is

1. Image(s) before the edit

2. Screen shot(s) of image open in editing software

3. Final image

Like this:

The final images you create in these PPAs are fine to turn in for Open Studio Assignments.  This is not meant to be extra work.  It is designed so that I can see your process in editing.  It is also to ensure that you are pushing yourself with editing.  I will expect to see you taking on editing tasks beyond just the basics.  These edits ARE NOT to be done on your phone.  You must use robust editing programs such as Photoshop, Lightroom or Photopea.  Resources below.
