You all have intuitively begun to understand the power of Photoshop. "How do I...?" is a refrain that means you are ready for more complexity. You got it! Once your Wanted Poster is complete, you will be tasked with a project that combines what you have learned thus far - layers, selecting, copying, pasting, changing colors - with new knowledge - gradients and filters. You will also need to combine your knowledge of composition with these concepts to create an image called Photo Rearrangement. You will combine two seemingly contrasting photographs into a patterned mosaic. One layer must demonstrate gradient use, another layer must demonstrate filter use.
You will also be creating your own Portfolio on educlipper.net. I will show you the program in class, and you will begin uploading your class products to this site. If you want to take a look at this program before next week, follow this link: educlipper. If you choose to create your school account before I discuss it in class, PLEASE use your school id and password.
Day 1: If you have not printed out your Mutated Animal, please do so.
Use a photo of a faculty member to create your Wanted Poster.
Day 2: I will explain educlipper at the beginning of class. When you finish your Wanted Poster, begin customizing your portfolio and uploading your projects (Prezi, biography, Mutated Animal, Wanted Poster) to the site.
Day 3: How to create gradients and use filters. Introduction of Photo Rearrangement project.
