Clear presentation of research output in a scientific publication, as a PhD thesis, or on a website, has become an essential yet challenging task for anyone in the data-rich environment of life sciences. Typical examples include producing publication-grade figures from raw graphics objects (images or graphs) or compiling the PhD thesis from graphics and text data. Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) is a powerful software package containing applications that can make these tasks substantially lighter. Yet we experience in our daily interactions with the 500+ users of the AMC Cellular Imaging core facility that most PhD students have only limited understanding of the applications, capabilities and workflows of the CC workhorses - Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat and InDesign.
Understanding CC combined with basic training, driven by the needs of PhD students, will increase the quality and communicability of your scientific output, and teach valuable skills that can be transferred to any modern creative or production environment.
Aims and scope
General understanding of computer-generated graphical data formats, with special focus on pixel- and vector-based graphics.
Detailed understanding of optimal workflows to generate publication-quality figures, poster and PhD thesis from any graphical or text data.
Focused (limited) training in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat and InDesign, tailored to the needs of these workflows.
