Photoshop ’18

For the next few classes we are going to shift programs for our turn ‘n’ burns and have them to be done in Photoshop CC.

Part 1
First thing we need to do is some practice in the Photoshop CC interface.  We will have three sections that we will be practicing; selecting, blending and composition. Each section will have set stages in each, that will generate a series of photoshop files (one for each stage). You will then uploaded each stage file (named accordingly) to the class Google, generate contact sheets for each section (3 total) and upload those as well. Follow the details in the specification sheet below.

Due: Tuesday, March 5th

Part 2
For the second part of this will be to utilize the files in the homeworkdocs folder under Photoshop Step2 to create a word collage. There are 4 images there for you to use. You can ONLY use images that I provide you for this assignment and lets see how creative you really can be!! You can repeat an image more than once per document. Using any of the tools in Photoshop create a composition that relates to the assigned word. I will provide you with 4 words that you will need to represent the meaning to the viewer in each work. I do NOT want to see the words in the composition.

Due: Thursday, March 8th

Part 3
This third part we will follow some instructions (see specification sheet below) on manipulating the 5 files in the homeworkdocs folder under Photoshop Step3 on the class Google drive. You may also use the photos you took for part 1/practice to help create your imagery, but the base of each must be the corresponding photo provided.

Due: Tuesday, March 20th

Photos ’18

For the next series of homework assignments we will be working in Photoshop. Before we get started you need to bring the following files to class. These need to be good, focused and ready to use files!

10+ organic textures
10+ man-made textures
10+ objects outside/inside (more of these the better!)

You may want to take 5+ photos to use as backgrounds as well.

Due: Thursday, March 1st

Problem Files ’18

Before we complete the poster project we need to be sure we can recognize problems associated with a vector file before it becomes a problem when we go to print. The requirement for the poster is two spot colors only and therefore is also with these problem files. These files are located on the class Google drive in the homework docs folder. You need to open each in Illustrator, and identify the problem with the file, and how to fix it. This needs to be written up identifying the poster file, the problem and the solution.

Due: for class Thursday, February 15th

Activities Fair ’18

This poster needs to be re-designed with a new tagline and appropriate graphics to go with it. Look at the poster (located on the class Google drive) to determine what direction you want to go. This is a unique size, so it will need to be printed on 11″ x 17″ paper and then trimmed down. You can only use black for your color. This needs to be printed before class Tuesday, February 13th.
