Images Skills Test

Images Skills Test

Original Photo

I decided to photograph Preston North End's Deepdale stadium. I captured the front of the stadium as in shot you can see the club crest that clearly identifies the stadium and also encorporates the floodlight which helps to indicate that this is an image of a football stadium. For the skills test, I have cropped this image to three different sizes (pixels) using Adobe Photshop Elements 8.0.

100 x 100 Thumbnail
The first crop is a thumbnail picture. The image is almost exactly the same as the original image, only smaller. This is ideal for a small news story with the image adding extra depth at the head of the article.

400(wide) x 300(high)

The second crop captures the main feature of the image, being the club crest. It is similar to the original image but is slightly cropped to focus more on the central features.

200(wide) x 500(high)

The final crop focuses in on the club crest. Everything around it is cropped and it is clear from the image what we are looking at even without the rest of the image.
