Students will learn to use the open source application GIMP to create creative media for point-and-shoot images and to understand how to use images to communicate information.


The course will introduce the basic concepts of image size, resolution, color tone, and style, and then move on to advanced image editing techniques such as separating people from background, sharpening images, and color correction. As a powerful and easy-to-use software, GIMP can fully meet the needs of this series of teaching.


The instructor will demonstrate a number of creative media production cases and answer students' questions on the spot, creating a harmonious classroom atmosphere with close teacher-student interaction. Each case study is accompanied by an assignment for students to complete on their own so that the instructor can assess their knowledge at the end of the class. At the end of the course, each student/group should be able to produce a creative media piece using GIMP independently.
