I would like you to use photoshop to create a graphic that tells me a little bit about you. Include your name, a background (picture or colours/patterns) and some pictures of things that interest you. If you have a picture of yourself (i.e. on Facebook) include that if you’d like. You will be using layer tools, the magic wand, text tool and possibly some paintbrush tools for this assignment. Be creative, and don’t be afraid to mess around with the program – see if you can discover new features and try to understand what they do. When you have completed this assignment (take your time, try to come up with something unique and interesting) post the image on your blog. Here are some examples of past projects:

Assignment 1

Getting Started/ First Assignment

All of the assignments and projects that you produce this year will be posted on your Comm. Tech Blog. We will create these blogs today, and make our first entries. We are using wordpress.com to host our free blogs. Click on the link, and then hit “Create a Blog” to get started. If you would rather not use your full name, that’s fine – you can use first name plus last initial if you’d like.

First Assignment: Include in the body of your post the following information: Name Grade Other courses this semester Top three to five most visited websites. On a scale of one to ten, how comfortable are you with computers and the figuring out of how they work in general (one being “What’s a Computer”, ten being “I built my own computer before breakfast this morning”) Based on anything you may know about this course, what things would you most like to accomplish over the course of this semester? Is there anything I need to know about you to help make this semester a positive and productive one for you? Add a picture to your post as well. It can be anything – a pic of you if you have one, or a random image of something that interests you from a google image search.
