Here are my JPEG images for the first lab…

Before the tsunami…

And After the tsunami…

Things I learned from my first exercise with Photoshop…
-It is less difficult (for me at least) to draw/paint/whatever moving the mouse in an “upward stroke” as opposed to moving the mouse down towards me.
-It is also less difficult to do the same thing moving the mouse to the right, out further away from me as opposed to moving the mouse to the left (I’m right handed).
-It really sucks not having a pen tool like in Illustrator to “connect the dots” or nodes.
-But…at the same time its nice to have an eraser in Photoshop too, which we all know doesn’t exist in Illustrator.

I just realized Justin posted the Middle East map already so heres another one…

It’s a political map of the world through the eyes of a Tory. I got it off Strange Maps of course. Disclaimer: It is possible that someone may find this map slightly offensive. Whatever…it’s satire. I would just like to make it clear however that even though I’m posting this on my blog, I’m not a Tory. Linky link…

Some of you all might have seen this map before but I’m going to post it anyway because I think its kind of interesting. It’s a map of the hypothetical “New Middle East.”

If you are interested in more info relating to the map, here’s some links…

A new semester means a new blog! So while I decided to make a “new” blog with a fresh start, I’m keeping the look the same because well…I liked it the way it was before. If for some odd reason you haven’t noticed, my blog from last semester is still at www.geog310rkpjr.blogspot.com. Intro to Digital Cartography was by far my favorite class last semester and I’m really looking forward to learning some more advanced cartography skills and how to use some of the other software out there like Photoshop and Flash. I think for the most part everybody produced some really cool stuff last semester and I’m excited to see what we come up with this semester as well.
