This is the final version of my magazine cover.

The key tools that I used in the construction of my magazine were… ERASER TOOL- I used this tool to edit the original image as it had various objects in the background that I did not want in. I found the eraser tool very helpful as it was a quick and easy way to edit the image in the way I wanted. I also learnt how to select the eraser to a colour, so I took the RGB code from my background colour and set this to the colour of the eraser, I feel that this was a good use of the eraser tool on Photoshop.

The key tools that I used in the construction of my magazine were… STAMP FILTER- To make the image look like the stamp style it did in my final magazine cover, I used the stamp tool in the sketch filter. I felt that this was a good way to portray a unique genre that linked well with the genre of the independent film trailer. I also used the same effect on my poster, which gained a sense of brand identity and continuity.

The key tools that I used in the construction of my magazine were… TEXT TOOL- I used the text tool for all the text that appears on my front cover. I altered the size of the text to create a hierarchy of size from the most important elements such as the masthead to the least important such as the price. I downloaded the fonts such as ‘moonflower’ from websites such as ‘’. I think this was good use of using multiple new media technologies.

This is the final version of my poster cover.

The key tools that I used in the construction of my poster were… MAGIC WAND TOOL- I found the magic wand tool very useful in the construction of my poster. I used it on images such as the festival logos found on the right and left of the record. I selected the background and in between letters of these images and then deleted the selected areas. This made the image transparent so I was able to put it on the record. I also used the magic want tool to then select the logos to change the colour by using the ‘fill tool’. I also used the magic wand tool to select the record and then delete the background of the main image (with the girl on). This was because I changed the opacity of the record image so the main image was then visible in the background. So deleting the part of the image that was behind the record fixed this problem.

The key tools that I used in the construction of my poster were… CLONE STAMP TOOL- When I applied the stamp filter effect on the image, it did not make the whole of my characters body visual. So the clone stamp tool helped me to extend the characters arms by replicating the existing part of the image. I found this very useful as it allowed be to identically replicate the existing parts of the image.
