So after lots of research on Augment Apps I decided to use the Aurasma App.
This app will allow me to create my short video and design a Poster & Leaflet for the Market of Batley School Of Art.
First I shot my videos of Tutors and Students from the college.
After I had shot my videos I start to create my ”Trigger Images”
These are image that you scan with Aurasma App to link the image to the Video.
I then went about creating my leaflet in photoshop I had saved my images 5 inch square as I knew these were going to be the dimensions for my leaflet.
I then went on to design my poster in Photoshop. I knew the images were 5×5 so I created the grid lines to help with the layout.
Once my designs were in place I then went on to create Apps in Aurasma.
I uploaded the trigger images first.
Once the trigger image is uploaded you then attach your video.
Once your video is uploaded you are then ready to ”PUBLISH”
It is that simple.
SCAN ME WITH YOU AURASMA APP
I know have my final and edited images and its time to put them all together.
I have opened my book cover template in photoshop and now need to create layers to add the image and a qr code.
I now added my QR code
All the layers together
Now all the images are added its time to add the writing.
Here I have shot the same image in both RAW and JPeg to show the comparisition of quality and flexability for post production between the two files for your final print
I have edited them both with the same settings in LightRoom and as you can see the RAW file as detained much more detail than the JPeg.
The JPeg image as lost more detail both in the foreground and background and now looks over exposed and out of focus.
The main reason you would shoot in JPeg would be to shoot sports, fast motion images, as the camera is quicker just shooting and saving images in JPeg, as a Raw image takes a slightly longer to save.
