Assignment:

I would like you to take all of the skills and techniques that you have been developing in Photoshop and put together a Photoshop Portfolio.

  • Select ONE theme that interests you (music, pets, cars, a tv show – anything you like) and create TEN photoshopped images that relate to the theme.
  • Incorporate the techniques that we have covered in the previous assignments.
  • When you have all of the images, create a new post on your blog to present your images.
  • With each image, include a description of the techniques that you used. Be as specific as you can – include info about tools and layers that you may have used.
  • Be creative!  Try to use as many of the techniques we learned as you can. Take your time to produce quality images – we will have the full week to work on this project.

Some things to keep in mind when you are creating your images:

  • Use of tools/techniques: Did you use the appropriate tools or techniques to complete the assignment?
  • Craftsmanship: Did you use care in making selections? Are edges smooth and clean or blurry and jagged? Did you select clear and crisp source images? Did you blend colours/brightness effectively?
  • Overall: Does the image show obvious signs of Photoshopping or did you blend/adjust until the image looked natural? Does it appear that effort was made to produce a final product of good quality?

Bonus:

If you really want a challenge, do a Google search for “photoshop tutorial” and try to find something that catches your interest. There are literally thousands of lessons out there that you could follow.
