Photoshop Assignment 3: Web Hero Banner (In-class and homework assignment)

 For your third Photoshop assignment, you will be creating a web hero banner using Photoshop tools and techniques we have learned this week including:

 There are two parts of the assignment: in-class and homework parts.

 To complete the in-class assignment:

o   Elliptical marquee tool on the plate

o   Polygonal Lasso tool on the star light

o   Magnetic Lasso tool on the vase

o   Quick selection tool on the dog

o   Magic wand tool on the plant

·        Once you have made each selection, add the layer mask.

·        Make adjustment to the mask layer to refine the selection further.

·        Then resize and arrange it as appropriate.

·        Feel free to move the price tags to fit with your objects’ positions

Make sure you save the file regularly so if there is a problem, you will not lose all your work.

 

At the end of the class:

·        Save your file as PSD and upload your work in progress to Slate
