January Program: Using Graphics in Real-World Tech Comm

Join us at our first program meeting of 2014!

Sean Brierley will discuss using graphics within technical communication. This presentation discusses screen captures, photographs, Web images, illustrations, and logos. Attendees learn which formats are better for specific types of deliverables. Topics include rasters, vectors, RGB and CMYK, resolution, and popular software. Attendees will come away with real-world knowledge and techniques that they can immediately apply to graphics in their workplace.
