Question:

How would you measure the area of a square that is inscribed within a circle that is also inscribed within another square with a side length of 4?

Dalia T.
Answer:

Because the circle inscribed within the outer square must touch (tangent) the midpoint of the opposite sides of the square, the diameter of the circle can be assumed to match the length of the side of the square, with a length of 4. In this case, the maximum possible square to inscribe within the circle would have all four corners touch the circumference of the circle. This means that the diagonal length of the square matches the diameter of the circle and is also 4. With this information you can use the length of the diagonal of the square to determine the area of the inner square as follows: Area = (side^2) / 2 Area = 4^2 / 2 Area = 16 / 2 Area = 8 unit squared.

Question:

What is the most efficient way to apply an identical series of commands or re-create edits on to a series of images on a mass set?

Dalia T.
Answer:

When you have a set of images that you wish to apply the same series of adjustments to, the "Actions" panel is your friend. An action is a recorded order of commands that Photoshop will run through when played to apply automated edits onto your image. 1. Start by opening up the Actions panel. Go to Window tab in your main menu, and click on "Actions". The Actions panel should appear in your workspace. 2. In the bottom right corner of your Actions panel, you should see a small squarish "note" shaped icon second from right. Click it to create your new action. 3. A "New Action" panel will appear, where you will be able to name your action, apply a colour to mark it in the panel for identification, and set a key for shortcut function. Press "record". 4. Now follow with the commands to apply the edits that you wish you to your image. 5. When done applying all edits, press the stop button at the bottom right corner of your Actions panel. 6. Now your action is recorded! When you open up other images, you can now simply select the prerecorded action that you created in your Actions panel after opening your image, then press "play" in the bottom right corner of your panel. 7. Now the action will apply the same set of edits as applied to the previous image! Enjoy! :)

Question:

Explain the various ways you can manage the resolutions of the images displayed in your document design?

Dalia T.
Answer:

You can manage the display resolution of the images you place in your document in two ways: universally or individually. To change the display resolution of all the images across your document, you can: 1. go to your main menu View tab, 2. select the sub-menu Display Performance, 3. then select between a choice of resolutions from low to high, "Fast Display", "Typical Display", or "High Quality" Display. You can also choose to override any resolution settings set to any individual images by clicking "Clear Object-Level Display Settings". Otherwise, by default, "Allow Object-Level Display Settings" will be set which allows you, by contrast, to set different display resolutions to each individual image in your document. To do set a specific display resolution to an individual image, 1. right-click on the image placeholder, 2. on your right-click menu, click "Display Performance", 3. and select between the same resolutions from low to high, "Fast Display", "Typical Display", or "High Quality" Display, respectively. And there you go! My advice: Always keep document-wide display performance set to "Typical Display" to reduce file work lag and image loading time as you work. When more resolution is needed for one or more particular images, the individual image display performance setting allows you the flexibility.
