Me Magazine Of Me

Changing the slide was a thought process for me to rethink about the way I can change the slide better. Reflecting on the critiquing from my colleagues, I took notes in my mind to think about the way I can the slide more about the resource than just based on the way I thought about the Me Magazine. The first thing that I changed is the photo I used and cropped it out to just focus on the three of us. Second, a lot of the classmates said that the word "Me Magazine of Me" should just be in a different font and not in slant where it makes the image irrelevant. The words in white was changed to being the the center rather than have the words in the corner which will disturb the whole slide itself. One thing that disturbs myself is not able to get rib of the lines around the red words. I added a text box and it just stayed there as it is. I was hoping to have the dark background to pop out the white and red words so it is clear to the viewer. I tried as much to keep the image to fit in instead of having it to be stretched out, which will make the image more disturbing to look at.

I was told that i should get rid of some pictures because there was too much going on. I got rid of pictures and kept what i felt was most important to me. I was told that the quotes were hard to read so I typed them instead of having them as a photograph. I made these changes to my slide to make it easier to look at and and make it a bit more organized. Also from looking at other peoples slides I noticed that they kept it simple and to the point, so i decided to make my slide simpler.

It´s all about me -tech

I learned from all the critique I had gotten back was that my slide was good but very bright. Also, that the abstract I had on the side did nothing for my slide. People also said I should stick to one color with the words and not overdo it. I noticed people saying that I should align my pictures or take some off. Also, I was told to either do a collage or stick to maybe two pictures to keep it simple and elegant.
I made these changes to my slide one because of the critique I had gotten back. Also, from looking at other people's slides they kept it very simple and didn't have as much and did a good job. Next, looking on the websites it said bleeding pictures are good which I did. Then, I used the rule to have a picture or something completely on the left and the words on the right. I made the color of the words and the background sort of have a cloud type resemblance. Also, for the colors I made them match the background colors of the pillows so it won't throw people off. I tried to make it appealing to the eyes and not too distracting.

New and Improved Slide 2.0!

I learned a lot from the critique of my slide. First off, I learned that I didn’t have enough of my saxophone player. During the critique, Mrs. Hull stated that more nose was needed in the photo, so I decided to move the image slightly towards the right. Also, Mrs. Hull stated that the white background of my image blended in with the white slide background. To avoid this, I added blue borders around my photo to make it pop and to give it distinction. What I also learned was that having different size fonts in a sentence isn’t good. I was told that the different sized fonts of my photo hurt the eyes and made the quote hard to read. To fix this, I decided to make the font size 60 for each letter, and I also made sure all the words were on the same line. Lastly, I learned that empty space (which was prominent on my slide) is not pleasing. So, I decided to make my picture bigger, and to space out my words in a way that allowed for equal empty space.

I learned from my critique that I should have used more contrasting colors and bigger letters. I used black and white because they are contrasting colors, I deleted pictures that I felt were crowding my slide, and I enlarged my name so that it would be more eye-catching.

(Updated) Slide - Matt Reed

I learned to make things more unique. Even though my I didn't really change to make my unique, I still did learn it. I only made two very minor critics. I moved the words down a little, made the picture wider, and cropped the picture so you could only see half of the skulls face. Now, that I am looking at the picture I like it a lot more.

Finalized Slide

From the critique of my slide, I learned that simplicity is the key to presenting slides. You must keep your stuff simple, but still interesting to view. I also learned that you don't need your name on slides like this and that too much stuff on a slide is really distracting. One last thing I learned is how to create a slide for presentation the correct way.
I made many changes to the slide. For example, I removed most of the words, changed the background a bit, and removed my name on the slide. I removed most of the words because I realized you didn't need them. It was also distracting and too much on the slide. I changed the background because it wasn't as visible, so i made it a bit darker also so it would compliment the pictures on my slide more. One last change I made was removing my name because you don't need it and it isn't appropriate for the slide.

Second Slide Presentation - Mindy Saw

From the critique of my slide, I learned that some of the fonts that I used on my words should be bigger and more visible. 
The changes I made to my slide were the size of some of the words and the color of all the words. I changed to the size to make the words more visible and easy to read. I changed the color of all the words to to let it pop out and appear more than the color I used on my first slide.

Second Slide

I learned that we need to take time and realize what truly looks good and what we can try and get rid of. 

After the critiquing I knew that I had to change a few things. There was geometric shapes in the corner that I couldn't get rid of at first, and then when I went to redo my slide, I figured it out. I knew that i had to get rid of this because people didn't like it during the critique. The other change that I made was that I got rid of some of the space between the words because people advised me to do so.

New Slide

From the critique on my slide I learned that simplicity is key. I also learned to make every photo and every text visible to the naked eye. The last thing I learned from the critique was that I should have my photo pop out from the background to make it easier to decipher each photo. 
I made the changes I did to this slide, so that my entire slide could be visible and easier to get the message and to understand what I  was trying to get across. Also because I wanted to not complicate the slide with not needed text or photos
