Making a poster, booklet, or book? Designing vector graphics for print or web? Creating an infographic? Designing a 3D object for a laser cutter, CNC machine, or 3D printer? Need to make or open a DNG file? Looking to copy protect a pdf, or make a scanned document searchable via OCR? Want to edit and build creative projects around smartphone snapshots or images from a DSLR?
At the McGraw DLL, we view multimedia design projects as an essential part of 21st century academic training and expression. Whether you are editing images, creating graphics or designing a website in Photoshop; editing RAW photos in Lightroom; building line drawings and sketches in Illustrator; designing layouts and typefaces InDesign; or combining documents in Acrobat – we have industry-standard tools for your creative project. We also have Sketch for prototyping websites and applications, Rhino for technical 3D drawings, and Blender for 3D animation. For more data driven design, we offer Processing, R and R Studio and STATA. We also have optical character recognition software such as Acrobat and Abbyy FineReader. If you like drawing with a stylus pen, we have Wacom tablets available. We also have a range of scanners, such as an 11×17 flatbed that can handle documents and transparencies up to 2400 ppi, a duplex feeder scanner for class notes, and a 35mm slide scanner.
