GDES 230 - Advanced Image Editing and Correction


(R only) (Also offered as PHOT 230 . Credit cannot be received for both GDES 230  and PHOT 230 .)

An advanced study of digital editing and image correction as it applies to the needs of the graphics or photography student and professional. Students perform contrast and color correction on more difficult scanned images and digital photographs in an effort to gain aesthetic control of the image prior to final output. Topics also include visual and mechanical calibration of input and output devices. PREREQUISITE(S): GDES 214 , PHOT 214  or consent of department. Two hours lecture, four hours laboratory each week. Formerly GD 230.

4 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Explain contrast range as applied to grayscale images.
  • Classify images based on Histogram interpretation.
  • Apply image corrections to compensate for output limitations.
  • Identify neutral areas in color images.
  • Apply image corrections to achieve color balance in neutral areas.
  • Identify and categorize colors in context.
  • Apply image corrections to achieve color balance.
  • Explain and compensate for color space gamut inconsistencies.
