The up-to-date colors available meant that I could create fairly high-quality pictures. However, my limited paint program again handicapped my skills, its inadequate tools requiring me to draw every pixel manually, which proved very time consuming. After using the new computer for a few years, I sent a picture I had created to my uncles who work with 3D imaging. They were impressed, and asked me if I would like a professional imaging program. For my next birthday I received the digital imaging software Photoshop LE, renowned for its professional capabilities.
From musical instruments, to desk objects, to furniture, to high tech keys and even clothes, perhaps there isn’t even a range. 3D printing, the process of making 3-Dimensional solid objects from a digital model, is now a turning into a revolution. With the price, stretching from many thousands to the cheapest, at $350, this technology can be used in the simplest boutiques and labs to the largest of industries. Mainstream media is only now popularizing 3D printing, although it has been around for decades. Being able to print absolutely anything, with almost any industrial material, it has already set up many debates for a positive or negative future.
Modeling is the process by which 3- dimensional objects are built inside the computer; animation is about making those objects come to life with movement, and rendering is about giving them their ultimate appearance and looks. Hardware is the brains and brawn of computer graphics, but it is powerless without the right software. It is the software that allows the modeler to build a computer graphic object that helps the animator bring this object to life, and that, in the end, gives the image its final look. Sophisticated computer graphics software for commercial studios is either purchased for $30,000 to $50,000, or developed in-house by computer programmers. Most studios use a combination of both, developing new software to meet new project needs.

A blog post by Google Blog the author said, “A year ago, we introduced Google Photos with one mission – to be a home for all your photos and videos organized and brought to life so that you can share and save what matters.” “You've collectively freed up 13.7 petabytes of storage on your devices – it would take 424 years to swipe through that many photos.” “We've also applied two trillion labels, and 24 billion of those have been for selfies.” Yet this is only likely to be a fraction of the true number of self-portraits snapped by smartphone users in 2015 – Google only counted images uploaded to its Photos app. It will not include selfies kept on Apple's iCloud, posted to Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and

Upon first introduction to this particular section in class I was very overwhelmed at the idea and wondered how I could ever create such an object on something 2D. By focusing on contour lines and highlights and darks, creating something 3 dimensional become much easier and I started to understand the concept more. Being able to understand how to create something 3D is extremely important in graphic design if one wishes to have a future in such a competitive field. As a designer one must be able to create a work on a computer screen that is life-like, meaning having something 2D looks extremely flat and bland. By grasping this skill I have been able to take my designs to the next level by taking my work to a more life-like presentation, allowing for a more professional final product.
