Photoshop Assignment 3: Four tasks to complete
Photoshop Task 1: Open the Scoreboard photo. Crop down to the edges of the scoreboard. Then straighten the image so the edges are square using the edit-transform-skew (turn on transform controls). Then, using the clone tool change the score to 28 to something. Save file and put the jpg on your website under Assignment 3.
Photoshop Task 2: Open bulldog11 image. Make a duplicate layer. Then make a duplicate layer of the duplicate. Desaturate the top layer to make the image void or almost void of color. Then erase the center of the top image to reveal the colored dog underneath. Flatten the layers. Save the file as a jpg file and place on your website under assignment 3.
Photoshop Task 3: Open bulldog11 image. Make a duplicate layer. Then, using the adjustment tools above "layers" on the right side select the "hue/saturation" icon. Be sure to select "colorized". Move the slide bars to get a new color. Press Command and "i" at the same time to create a mask. Using a brush you can now change the color of the blanket. Repaint the blanket to a new color. Flatten the image, save as a jpg file and put on your website under assignment 3.
Photoshop Task 4: Open the citroen 2cv photo. Create a duplicate layer. Using the quick selection tool select the headlight. Use copy and paste to create a second headlight and place it in an appropriate location. Then, using the adjustment tools above "layers" on the right side select the "hue/saturation" icon. Be sure to select colorize. Move the slide bars to get a new color. Press Control and "I" at the same time to create a mask. Using a brush you can now change the color of the citroen. Repaint the car. Then, make a second colorized layer to paint the top a new color. Next open the rim image and delete all of the white. You will use Window-Arrange-2vertical to get both images on screen. Drag the rim into the 2cv image twice (for two wheels). Move and resize the images to create the wheels. You will also use the edit-transform-skew tool to get the rim to fit over the wheel to reveal the tire. Erase any extra black off of the rim you inserted.
Now I would save the image. Then I would do a save as to make a copy of the car file so if something goes wrong I couldn't lose all of my hard work. Then go to layers and flatten the image to a single layer. You can't continue to color the car but that's OK at this point.You will want to make a duplicate background image for editing and turn off the original background layer. Next we use the pen tool to cut out the car. After totally closing the selection path, right click to select selection. Use a 1 pixel blur and make the selection. Now go to the selection tab and select Inverse. This will select everything but the car. Hit delete. Final step is to bring in the school background image. It is probably easiest to open the school image and drag the car into it. Resize the car (hold shift when you resize to maintain aspect ratio. You will write up how you did all of this in a word document. You will include pictures of the original and the steps you followed to get to the final result. That word document you will then print as a multi page Adobe PDF and submit it digitally to the Turn In box with your name on it.
