** REMEMBER **

Save your working files (files that aren’t done yet) to the Desktop,
then drag to Google Drive.

Save it like this:
From your program, go to FILE>SAVE AS and choose DESKTOP,
then drag from the DESKTOP to GOOGLE DRIVE and the Correct Class Folder.

Save your final file in Google Classroom.
Just add the file from Google Drive.


You will open and resize a favorite project and then have it printed as a magnet!

Step 1

Open a Photoshop or InDesign project that you liked this year and would like to make a magnet out of.

READ THIS NEXT PART IF YOU’RE USING INDESIGN ART ONLY
Otherwise, if you are using a Photoshop project, go on to Step 2.

Remember, if you open an InDesign project,
you have to drag any graphics that you used to the Desktop, too,
and make sure they are linked (Open the LINKS PALETTE to check.
If the yellow “YIELD” sign is there, click on it twice.)

So open up your InDesign file. Make sure the links work.
Go to File>Export and choose DESKTOP.
When the Export to Interactive PDF screen comes up, click OK.
Just keep clicking OK until it finally saves to the Desktop!
Close InDesign.


 

Step 2

There will be different ways to resize your image depending on if it’s TALL or WIDE.
Both instructions will be below.
Either way, you have to do the next two things first.

Open Photoshop.
FILE > OPEN your image (if it’s a PDF on the Desktop, open that).
Go to IMAGE > IMAGE SIZE.
You should see something like this:
