Best answer:

Answer by Andrew J.
If you plan to oppose a career in the publishing industry, its ideal to stick to the basics. Begin with writing, once that’s cleared you can branch out to other forms of media like video and film. Public relations is also necessary since publishing needs strong networks. Its like what they always say, “its about the people you know”.

Here are a few classes I selected from your board:

Copywriting/Storyboarding in Broadcast Advertising

Screenwriting

Film Theory (capstone, Film and TV Production Concentration)

Broadcast News Production

Persuasive Communication Campaigns

Advertising Campaigns

Principles of Marketing

Public Relations

Freedom of Communication

Legal Issues & the New Media

Business and Professional Communication

I hope this helps!

How can I make web picture galleries from pictures matching a keyword search?

Question by Try Thinking For Yourselves: How can I make web picture galleries from photos matching a keyword search?
I have a bunch of photos tagged with keywords (currently in iPhoto). I want to have a website where someone can search for a keyword, or select a keyword from a list, and have a web pic room generated of all matching pictures. I have hosting with mySQL and PHP. I am familiar with computers, but I can NOT program this myself, I’m looking for some “easy” way to do it. A blog site or free homepage or such would be fine if they include this functionality, or a pre-made website platform I can install on my host with this functionality. It does not have to be highly customizable or elegant.

Answer by Kristofer
You need to leanr programming in sql and php to do this. Google search tutorials for that, and get rid of that mac it sucks.

Where can I find a website that has color schemes that I could choose from?

Question by Cindie: Where can I find a website that has color schemes that I could select from?
I’m going to paint my living room which is all neutrals, dark leather furniture and modern cream accents. We have celery green curtains and I’m looking for a color scheme I can use as a tool to finish painting and introducing more color to the room.
I used to have a designers handbook in college like this, full of color combinations that work. Where can I find examples of colors online?
