LTS Graphics is located on first floor of the Old Library (OL 1117).
The Graphics unit of LTS Media Production supports the University by producing a variety of instructional materials for classroom use. These materials range from original art work to images for presentation graphics to various combinations of multimedia (images, video, audio), including those for Web use. Graphics staff and instructors often operate as a team in order to generate the content needed for a specific course.
The Graphics unit staff also train faculty and staff on the use of presentation graphics software and image manipulation software. These workshops include design tips for presentations and for working with images on the Web. For further information, there is documentation for issues involved with incorporating digital images in Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Illustrator.
In support of Faculty/Student Research Day and other research poster development, the Graphics unit offers workshops and consultation in poster design using Illustrator and PowerPoint. In collaboration with the Photography division, we have an informational page on creating posters that has many good tips on design and also pertinent specifications on file types, sizes and turn around time for printing.
