The process of re-editing the front page, contents page and double page spread of my Music Magazine After receiving feedback after posting my front page, contents page and double page spread onto ‘Blogger.com’ I made a few changes to each page and have presented as a step-by-step guide as I had done with the developing of them. Front Page With the front page, I firstly moved the masthead up to free up space and show more of the main image. And moved the dateline with it, and the coverlines. Then I removed the freebee part because I had not placed a freebee on the front page. Also, I had to move the main coverline up because the Photoshop brush effect behind it was on the same layer as one of the letters – for some reason.

  • 1. The process of re-editing the front page, contents page anddouble page spread of my Music MagazineAfter receiving feedback after posting my front page, contents page and double page spread onto Blogger.com I made a few changes to each page and have presented as a step-by-step guide as I had done with the developing of them. Front Page With the front page, I firstly moved the masthead up to free up space and show more of the main image. And moved the dateline with it, and the coverlines. Then I removed the freebee part because I had not placed a freebee on the front page. Also, I had to move the main coverline up because the Photoshop brush effect behind it was on the same layer as one of the letters for some reason.

2. Then I figured out how to remove the Photoshop brush effect that was on the same layer as one of the letters I done this by using the Triangular Marquee tool around the brush effect and pressed delete once it was gone I had to place it back on to the page, but upon doing this it came out brighter than before this is because it is now on a separate layer and I also moved the Photoshop brush effect and the writing for the main cover line to the bottom of the page, I done this because it freed up more space and didnt cover the image up as much. Then I added more cover lines, I done this to make it more interesting and to intrigued people to read it and read the magazine in general. 3. After that I moved the pull quote lower down the page so it freed up more space and made it a bit larger, I also placed a black border around the writing to make it stand out more I done this by using the Triangular Marquee tool and using the Paint Bucket tool to fill it in black. Then I added the name Minx above the pull quote because it is what she said I used the front off Dafont.com which I have used before, and done the same thing with the pull quote and added a border but this time in green, so it stood out. 4. And finally, I added the price and the web address to the page, I placed it underneath the dateline and done it in the same style as the dateline. 5. Contents Page With the front page I had to organise the titles into sections, features and regulars, firstly I sorted out what I wanted to be a feature and what I wanted to be a regular and placed them into different sections. Then I added the titles Features and Regulars which I used with a font from Dafont.com and placed a border around them as I did for the front page, I used the same method. 6. Double Page Spread With the double page spread all I had to do was add captions, which I done with a font from Photoshop and changed the colour to green.
