Example of Design process

The pictures in this post demonstrate recent design activities. Students worked in the computer lab with Adobe Photoshop to  combine two images together to create the final poster. They chose images to go with their quotes. After everyone combined two images to go with their quote, we asked them to experiment and try a second version.

Some of the Photoshop techniques demonstrated:

  • Layers – combining them.
  • Layers – adjusting scale.
  • Layers – making them transparent “Opacity.”
  • Layer mask – how to create a blend.
