Our media equipment in CWAC classrooms is better than ever! Each classroom is now equipped with an HD projector, HDMI and VGA connections, and speakers.
Media cabinet keys no longer required! To turn projection on, simply hit the ON button. To connect your laptop to the projection, choose HDMI or VGA, connect your computer to the appropriate cable (newer Mac adapters now included), and press the appropriate button on the panel. You’re all set!
As always, please be sure to turn projectors OFF when your class is finished.
If you are experiencing difficulties seeing your image groups or folders in ARTstor, try clearing your browser cache and then reloading. ARTstor updated the digital library this morning, which caused this temporary problem. For instructions on clearing your cache, please click here.
If you are using the wireless network on campus and are experiencing difficulties, please contact IT Services with the day, time, location, and description of the problem. You may also consider the data rate of the airport on your laptop, and/or the router/modem hardware used at home. 802.11n provides the fastest connection. Click here for more information.
Do you have an image that is out-of-focus? The Sharpen tool in Photoshop can help!
Open the image in Photoshop. Zoom in (Select View from the menu and go to Actual Pixels for best results).
The image, at full view, looks especially blurry. It’s difficult to read the legend.
To sharpen, go to Filter > Sharpen, and select Sharpen.
As you can see, the edges are crisper and the legend is easier to read after sharpening. You can sharpen as many times as is necessary, but make sure that the image doesn’t begin to look pixelated. This is a sign of over-sharpening.
