Do not simply resize, adjust color, swap backgrounds, or use filters.

Instruction PART A 1. Download the file AI_GWDA101_Wk3_Asn1_Assets.zip . Unzip the file to find two files: AIO_GWDA101_W3_A1_Roadmap2015.pdf is a written set of basic instructions for creating selections in Photoshop. AIO_GWDA101_W3_A1.psd is a Photoshop file set up for you to create selections and masks on a variety of images. 2. Watch the video tutorial below to complete this task. This video will walk you through how specific tools can be used to make a selection on each of the images and how to convert a selection to a layer mask. Remember, a text version of the tutorial is available for downloading from the link below the video. 3. Use the required tools and follow directions to make selections within the file. Create a layer mask from each selection. Change the order of the layers. 4. Save your work as Adobe illustrator Part B: Create a composite image in Photoshop using the video tutorial Download the file “AI_GWDA101_Wk3_Asn2_Assets.zip “. Unzip the file to your desktop where it will create a folder called “Photoshop2.” Inside the folder are two TIF files you will use as part of the exercise. Watch the video tutorial below to complete this task. Follow the steps to create the masked layer of the little girl and place her on a new background. Work step-by-step along with the video. If you cannot successfully complete a step, do not move forward, rewind the video and familiarize yourself with the process being explained. Then try again. As always, a written transcript of the tutorial is available below the video tutorial. When you complete the exercise, save your file as adobe illustrator. Much like last milestone, Part C of the task gives you the chance to take the tools you just learned and practice using them in any creative ways you like. Using a copy of the composite image you will make significant changes to the photo composite. Part C: Make adjustments to your Photoshop composite image Open Adobe Photoshop. Using the File menu, choose the Open… command and locate your completed composite image from Part A. Now return to the File menu and choose Save As… to create a copy of the file. Rename the file YourLastName_changes_W3.psd—you are now working with an independent copy of the image. 5. Make 3–5 adjustments/changes to the file. These changes should be substantial. We encourage you to make significant changes which allow you to better showcase your mastery of the selection tools. You might, for example, go to Image Quest and download additional photo(s) to select and add to the composite. You could select other parts of the image (the windows, the desk) and change how they interact with other elements within the image. While you will not be graded for creativity, you will be evaluated for taking the time to make substantial changes to the work that demonstrates your mastery of the tools we explored in the video tutorial. Do not simply resize, adjust color, swap backgrounds, or use filters. This does not demonstrate mastery of tools or technical research. After completing your changes, save the file as adobe illustrator. 6. In 1–2 paragraphs, write a detailed summary of your experience covering the following: a,New tools or concepts about which you learned. b,The process you used to create the composite image. Be sure to include details of the steps you followed and any challenges you experienced in completing the exercises. c,The changes you made and how you accomplished them. PART D The Big vs. Small Project Let’s put your creativity to work! Create TWO scenes – one where a person or animal) look HUGE and another where the subject looks TINY. Find a photo of your (dog) for this project if possible. Remember to take your photo on a background that will be easy to remove in Photoshop. If you do not want to use your own photo, you can use Pixabay.com. INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Create a new Photoshop file 2. You may change to horizontal vs. vertical format if you go to Image>Image Rotation > 90 degrees after you create your document 3. Take at least two photos of yourself (or another subject) in different positions and remove the background. TAKE YOUR TIME AND REMOVE THE BACKGROUND CLEANLY! Any sloppy background removals will negatively effect your final grade. 4. Use what you learned in this Module to adjust levels your photos to improve them. 5. Use photos you find on Pixabay.com or take yourself to complete your scene to make your subject look big in one scene and small in another scene. 6. Save your final file as a Photoshop file Note for the writer: all files and examples needed for this project are uploaded. remember to save them as adobe file and part D as photoshop file.
