Assignment #16

Photoshop Project 1
Due Date: November 2

Instructions

Edit a photograph in Photoshop using the tools you learned so far.

  1. GET SET UP
    1. Create a new folder in your username folder called "Lastname Project 1". (Be sure to replace "Lastname" with your actual last name.)
    2. Save a large digital photograph in your "Lastname Project 1" folder.
    3. Open the photograph in Photoshop.
  2. CREATE A NEW VERSION
    Save the image with a new name so you still have the original.
    1. Go to File > Save As...
    2. Rename the file so it says "edit" at the end. For example, "IMG_0025.jpg" would become "IMG_0025edit.jpg".
    3. Save this "edit" version into your "Lastname Project 1" folder.
  3. EXPERIMENT!
    1. Edit the "edit" image however you wish.
    2. I must at least a correction in light levels or color.
    3. I'd like you try a good handful of experiments.
    4. For inspiration, take a look at PhotoshopTalent.com or Worth1000.com.
  4. MAKE A RECORD
    1. Open Notepad (Start > Notepad, or open it from your desktop.) Save the new, untitled text file as "process.txt" in your "Lastname Project 1".
    2. In "process.txt", record what you did in Photoshop to the original image to achieve the results you did.
    3. Go ahead and also write in what you tried but undid, so I can see some evidence of your experimentation.
    4. Keep recording your progress as you go, so you don't have to try to remember it all at the end.
  5. TURN IT IN
    Turn in the entire "Lastname Project 1" folder into the "Project 1" folder in the Inbox. I should see the following in your "Lastname Project 1" folder:
    1. the original image
    2. the edited image (5 points)
    3. "process.txt" (5 points)
