Change “Color Quality” to “Medium (16 Bit).” Click “Apply.” 15 seconds to click “Yes” or must repeat
above steps. Click “OK.” Close the window and put the CD in. Open “My Computer” and double click the
CD “Plate Tec.” Double click “PateCol.” Wait a moment and double click the film projector icon,
“PlateTec.” Turn off the sound.
Computer Lab Instructions: Look over the different navigation buttons and then click on the  Button to start the
program. Click on the Introduction Button, and then use the  Button to advance through the program to complete the
exercises and answer the questions. There is not a question for every page, however, you should read every page and
