Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    It is important to understand which types of editing are destructive and which types are non-destructive. Which of these editing methods are non-destructive?

    • A.

      Masking

    • B.

      Using Adjustment layers

    • C.

      Making adjustments using the Image > Adjustments menu

    • D.

      Transforming Smart Objects

    • E.

      Using the Clone Stamp tool

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Masking
    B. Using Adjustment layers
    D. Transforming Smart Objects
    Explanation
    Masking, using adjustment layers, and transforming smart objects are non-destructive editing methods.

    Masking allows you to hide or reveal certain parts of an image without permanently altering the original pixels. Adjustment layers apply edits to an image without directly changing the original pixels, making it easy to modify or remove adjustments later. Transforming smart objects allows you to scale, rotate, or distort an object without losing any image quality.

    On the other hand, making adjustments using the Image > Adjustments menu and using the Clone Stamp tool are destructive editing methods, as they directly change the original pixels and make permanent alterations to the image.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    You are preparing several images to be published on the web, and you need to make sure they are the correct size while maintaining the right aspect ratio. Recording an action is the quickest way to do this. Which steps should you include in your action? (Choose 2)

    • A.

      Using 300ppi resolution

    • B.

      Constrain image proportions when exporting

    • C.

      Use RGB colour mode

    • D.

      Use CMYK colour mode

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Constrain image proportions when exporting
    C. Use RGB colour mode
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to include the steps of constraining image proportions when exporting and using RGB color mode in the action. By including the step of constraining image proportions when exporting, you ensure that the images maintain the correct aspect ratio while resizing. Using RGB color mode is important for web publishing as it is the standard color mode used for digital screens, ensuring accurate color representation. Using 300ppi resolution and CMYK color mode are not necessary for web publishing and may result in larger file sizes and incorrect color representation on digital screens.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of these statements are true?

    • A.

      A Smart Object can have a linked external file, or a linked instance inside Photoshop.

    • B.

      Linked Smart Objects enable the ability to perform non-destructive transforms without losing original image quality.

    • C.

      A Smart Filter cannot be hidden without hiding the entire layer.

    • D.

      You can make changes to a Smart Filter after you've added it to a layer.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A Smart Object can have a linked external file, or a linked instance inside Photoshop.
    B. Linked Smart Objects enable the ability to perform non-destructive transforms without losing original image quality.
    D. You can make changes to a Smart Filter after you've added it to a layer.
    Explanation
    A Smart Object can have a linked external file, or a linked instance inside Photoshop. This means that a Smart Object can either be linked to an external file, such as an image file, or it can be a linked instance within the Photoshop document itself.

    Linked Smart Objects enable the ability to perform non-destructive transforms without losing original image quality. This means that when you apply transformations, such as scaling or rotating, to a linked Smart Object, the changes are applied non-destructively, meaning that the original image quality is preserved.

    You can make changes to a Smart Filter after you've added it to a layer. This means that once you have applied a Smart Filter to a layer, you can still go back and make adjustments or changes to the filter settings as needed.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following Transform commands can NOT be used to manipulate a text layer? (Choose two)

    • A.

      Skew

    • B.

      Perspective

    • C.

      Free Transform

    • D.

      Distort

    • E.

      Rotate

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Perspective
    D. Distort
    Explanation
    Perspective and Distort are the Transform commands that cannot be used to manipulate a text layer. Perspective is used to adjust the perspective of an image, which is not applicable to text. Distort is used to reshape an image by dragging its corners, which would distort the text and make it illegible. Skew, Free Transform, and Rotate, on the other hand, can be used to manipulate a text layer by adjusting its position, size, and rotation.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    ________ layers help organise your content through establishing visual hierarchy by nesting layers.

    Correct Answer(s)
    grouping
    Explanation
    Grouping layers help organise your content through establishing visual hierarchy by nesting layers. By grouping related layers together, it becomes easier to manage and manipulate them as a single unit. This allows for better organization and structure within the design, making it more efficient to work with and ensuring a clear visual hierarchy. Grouping also helps in maintaining consistency and making edits or adjustments to specific sections of the content more convenient.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of these statements are correct?

    • A.

      A layer with 100% opacity is completely opaque.

    • B.

      Adjustment layers can make colour adjustments to an image without permanently changing the pixel values.

    • C.

      An Adjustment layer can only be applied to a single layer.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A layer with 100% opacity is completely opaque.
    B. Adjustment layers can make colour adjustments to an image without permanently changing the pixel values.
    Explanation
    A layer with 100% opacity is completely opaque because opacity refers to the transparency of a layer, and 100% opacity means the layer is fully visible and not transparent at all. Adjustment layers can make color adjustments to an image without permanently changing the pixel values because they apply non-destructive edits to the image, allowing for easy modification or removal of the adjustments later on.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these statements are accurate?

    • A.

      Grids can be unlocked and moved around.

    • B.

      The rulers must be visible to add grids or guides.

    • C.

      Guides are nonprinting lines that can be placed to help align objects.

    Correct Answer
    C. Guides are nonprinting lines that can be placed to help align objects.
    Explanation
    This statement is accurate because guides are indeed nonprinting lines that can be placed in order to assist with the alignment of objects. They are a useful tool for ensuring precise positioning and arrangement of elements within a design or layout. Unlike grids, which can be unlocked and moved around, guides are fixed and cannot be moved once placed. The statement about the rulers needing to be visible to add grids or guides is not accurate, as grids and guides can be added regardless of the visibility of the rulers.

      Occupation

    Correct Answer(s)
    D. Age
    E. Occupation
    Explanation
    When considering the target audience for a website that sells eyeglasses, age is an important demographic because different age groups may have different vision needs and preferences. Occupation is also important as it can indicate the type of eyeglasses that may be needed for specific work-related activities. Religion, residence, and weight are not directly related to the target audience for eyeglasses, and therefore are not as important in this context.
