Digital Photo 2017
A few students have been asking about Photoshop, we start off learning the basics and doing only a few things and add more and more skills until the students are much better.

New Warmups are available here. They are due on 9/8. Save them to your desktop so you can answer them daily.
To use Canvas, you log in here: https://sequoia.instructure.com
You use your username from seq.org, which typically is your 6 digit student id. Your password is your initials followed by your birthday in 6 digits.
After you sign in, choose your courses from the list and select your digital class. Next click assignments and make sure your assignment is named correctly. The assignment should be named "Per_Exercise_LastName.doc" and submit using Canvas. Let me know if you have any trouble through email. jsheridanATseq.org
If you have additional questions, I've created a page on using Canvas here

Save this to your own computer and then download the document. You may need to be logged in to your seq.org account for this document to be visible.
For now just save the document to either google cloud, your google email, or a flash drive. Since you don't have assigned seats, you might switch computers the next class. I am going to trouble shoot getting Canvas set up this weekend and make sure we can use it for turning in assignments. Thanks for being patient.
