In our Electronic Media/Photography classes we’ve been applying our Photoshop skills using

  • Custom brushes
  • Layer masks
  • Copying and pasting
  • Color selection
  • Merging layers

to create unique pictures with words.  Next project: moving from celebrities to self portraits!  Awesome job Lauran (Jessica), Damian (David), Emily (Cillian) and Jamie (Will)!

Electronic Media students learned to animate pictures, drawings, text, etc. in Photoshop.  Here are the animations from my fifth period class.

My students amaze me 🙂
