DTP Know-how Sharing

Dear Miriam,

I am writing to inform you about DTP publication. I want to tell you about every step that i have learnt. it’s thrilling indeed, ’cause you save your time by following these simple steps.

Firstly, you should decide the basic form of the document. To create the DTP document, you begin by selecting a template or by specifying the settings of a new document. The next stop is to type the text directly or to import it from a program like Word or WordPerfect.

When the text has been edited, you should import the pictures and use precise tools to position, scale, crop and rotate all the items. Once the file is composed and saved, you have to prepare it for printing, which involves verifying the colour specification, creating a Postscript or PDF file, exporting the file in HTML format for the Web, checking proofs, etc.

The last step for you is to take the files to a service bureau, which will print the publication.

I hope you enjoy my information. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Maria Zhukova, student from Antibes

3D(ream) Modelling

Graphics and Design

For successful modelling everyone should remember these 4 steps. They will help you to realize your ideas in a best way.


is a way to design a 3d object at the structural level. 

solid modeling

 is the use of software to create a virtual three-dimensional model of some physical object.


is the process of applying images to 3D objects so that they appear more realistic.


 is the automatic process of generating a  photorealistic or non-photorealistic image from a 2D or 3D model by means of computer programs.

Now I know well which 4 steps I should follow.

Are You a Cyberperson?

Here is the way to find out
how technological you are:

  • What kind of information do you get on the Web?
  • Do you create and design your own web pages?
  • Do you know how to compress and decompress files?
  • Have you ever booked your holiday on the Net?
  • Have you ever bought things over the Net?
  • Have you ever played games online?
  • Do you text your friends?
  • Have you got an anti-virus program?
  • Have you got a lot of contacts on your account list?
  • Have you ever played music online?
  • What do you use more: phone or computer?
  • What is your favourite Website?

If you've got 5-6 positive answers, then you are on your way to Infotech.

But if the number of positive answers is ten or more, then you are a real cyberperson.

Internet Issues

There is no life without internet now.
So we all should know about its issues.

the illegal copy and distribution of copyrighted software, games or music files

pretending that someone else’s work is your own 

implies spreading of destructive / intrusive software such as PC viruses, worms, scareware, adware, spyware, ransomware, Trojan horses as well as other forms of malicious programs.

getting passwords for online bank accounts or credit card numbers by using emails that look like they are from real organizations, but are in fact fake; people believe the message is from their bank and send their security details.

making one computer look like another in order to gain unauthorized access.

online harassment or abuse, mainly in chat rooms or newsgroups

 taking, making, circulation, and possession with a view to distribution of any indecent photographs.

Use the Internet with benefit.
Don't allow the issues to disturb you.
Learn all information about them to prevent problems.

I Am an Internet User

There is no person that don’t use Internet today. So… I am just one of these people and I am trying to learn everything about it.

I like this program  for safe and high quality connection with friends online. You can talk with video on or without. People use it in e-business or e-commerce also.

TeamViewer helps me to remotely control (i. e. connect and use) other computers for my goals. This is not a cybercrime, no. I myself use it for English learning and for trouble-shooting .

The best place to watch and share videos for me. I can find any video I want there. It can be music, educational, psychological or just for fun. Like, upload, watch & discover!

It will help if you need to buy something or to sell anything. This site uses e-cash by means of credit cards. Be careful using it, learn precautions before diving into buying.

Personally I use this program the most. You can meet new people, upload photos, make history of your own life. Also,  you can keep in touch with your friends sharing Histories and interesting videos with masks. 

Use the Internet in Right Ways

Paperless Office

A paperless office? Does this sound strange nowadays? No, of course. Today all offices use up a lot of paper. But we can see marvellous trends ahead. There are a lot of smart devices people can use instead of paper.  We use e-mail instead of fax, prepare out budget with a spreadsheet, scan printed materials, send messages, post important information on the site or in group and what not!

Also there are new smart devices which capture our life like digital cameras, smartphones, etc. Personally I think that offices of the future won’t use paper anymore and anywhere. For example HoloDesk proves it even now.

The Less Paper, The More Trees

NVIDIA Holodeck is a virtual reality (VR) innovation platform that brings designers, peers, and stakeholders together from anywhere in the world to build and explore creations in a highly realistic, collaborative, and physically simulated VR environment.

Printer of Dreams

I believe all of us gave a thought once in a while about a gadget of their dream. I did. So, I will tell you about a printer of my dreams.  

I think, it should print everything I want in what time I want. Pictures, documents, web pages, photos. A printer of mine can hear me also. For example, if I work at my computer, I shouldn’t go to it and press the button or if I am lying on the sofa, I can say to it something and it will print it out

It would be fantastic if the printer could recycle the paper. Maybe it will use plastic paper to save trees

To sum up, it should be small, so I could put it on the little shelf. It should have no wires to save place in my room too.

iMac of my dream

I was thinking about doing something new for quite a while. Finally, I decided to take up Computer design. But to do this I needed a new computer.

Initially I chose iMac pro. Why? Because I got used to my old friend iMac and I cannot imaging shifting to another type of working stations.

I checked out the Internet and found out that they released the new iMac packed with the most powerful graphics and processors ever in this brand, along with the most advanced storage, memory, and I/O.  As for its appearance — all this powerful hardware is kept behind a breath-taking Retina 5K display in a sleek, all-in-one design.

Computer design means not only coding, but rendering, 3d modeling, etc. Thus your working station must be extra powerful. That is where iMac Pro is ready to turn your biggest ideas into your greatest work. iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to balance multicore processing with single-thread performance. Which means you can render images, edit up to 8K video, manipulate photos, create real-time audio effects, or compile apps — all at lightning speed.

It is often an issue where to save and keep all your projects. With iMac pro there is no such a problem as you have at your disposal up to 4TB of SSD storage letting you work on large 4K and HD projects regardless of codec.

Having read all this info, and after watching reviews I should say that I can’t wait to work on it!

Hardwaring & Softwaring

Everyone of us works on the computer, but not everyone knows what it consists of and what helps it to work.

To begin with peripherals can be divided into three main types: input devices, output devices and storage media. A mouse, a keyboard and a camera are types of input devices. These objects people use to get any information into the computer. For example make a photo and send it to their relatives, to their best friends. Besides we have output devices. They help us to see data or to print out information that we need for working or for studying. There are two main kinds of them: monitors and printers. Also we have storage media. The storage media is very important for work of a computer. It can be classified by different ways of storing data or it can be divided into magnetic, optical and flash memory.

To sum up, without these three kinds of peripherals, people couldn’t use a computer. I wonder, if  computer will need these helpers in one hundred years… We will see!!!
