My skills in photoshop has drastically improved and is proven through the amount of layering and further manipulations to images. In addition the layout of the page including the sell lines and everything looks more professionals and like a real media text in comparison to the college magazines front cover and contents. furthermore getting used to the tools not only made the use of photoshop much easier but it also shortened the time I took to to create and also edit the final product. My understanding of the conventions for the genre has also been refined and advanced also implementing the necessary motives any media form. Say for example college in comparison the hip hop we have to be more weary of the audience and their different demographic and lifestyle.
