PROBLEM: How can you use Photoshop to create an image using several other photographs?

  1. Go outside and take pictures (at least 5 pictures) TAKE PICTURE OF YOU AND YOUR PARTNER IN FRONT OF THE SAME BACKGROUND LIKE THE VIDEO CLIP. Maybe take the pictures in front of the marquee out front, in front of the Bellevue Community Schools sign right outside the exit by my room, in front of our new entrance, etc. This should only take about 15 minutes!!!!! Take care of the camera!!!! You do not need video clips, just still photos so use 2D. Use the Bloggie cameras in the drawers in the front of the room.
  2. Get all the photos off the camera and put them in your drive.

    5. Click on the Layer Mask button–it is toward the bottom of the Layers palette on the left side of your screen
    6. Make sure you foreground color in your color palette is BLACK
    7. Select the Paint Brush tool
    8. Click and drag over the people in the layer–it will look like they are disappearing–try only to paint over the people
    9. CTRL-I This will invert the picture
    10. Zoom in and adjust the width of your paint brush and try to get as close to the people as possible. If you get too much and erase part of the person, change your paint brush color to WHITE and paint it back in.
    11. Once this Layer is done, repeat the above steps for the remaining layers.
    12. Save as a .PSD
    13. Save as a .JPG
    14. Print
    15. Send to me the .JPG file as an attachment in a note in Edmodo

    2. Today you will have the opportunity to put your creative talents to work using Photoshop. You have recently been hired by a local printing company. You job is to design the covers of various magazines, newsletters, textbooks, etc. using Photoshop. Your boss, Tracina Webster, has assigned you to the company’s newest account, the Bellevue Community School District. The school district needs a front page designed for their DISTRICT WIDE newsletter. This newsletter will be going out to EVERY taxpayer in the district, including those that do NOT have any children in school. Their nickname is the Comets and their colors are Navy Blue and White. Here are the requests that were made by the district:

      The cover should not contain a lot of dark color

      The cover should be in black & white or grayscale, since it will be printed in black & white

      Mrs. Nudd’s Math ArticleTHIS ARTICLE NEEDS TO BE ON THE FRONT PAGE!!!! Here are the pictures to include with it (so if you already had pictures on the front page, you may just want to delete them)–Math Picture #1Math Picture #2Math Picture #3. In this article is a Math Problem (it is the last paragraph)–put the math probelm in a special textbox to set it off. Be sure to add that the answer will appear somewhere else in the newsletter (you don’t have to worry about putting it there).

      The following need to appear on the front page (probably in small text toward the bottom):

      Mission Statement: “The Bellevue Community School District will ensure quality learning experiences for all students to reach their full potential in a dynamic global society.”

      Nondiscrimination Statement: The Bellevue Community School District does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, creed, national origin, race, religion, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical attributes, disability, ancestry, or political beliefs.

      Your boss, Tracina Webster, will be presenting your submissions to her superiors on Wednesday, March 4, 2009. IMPRESS THEM!!!! (Also, let Mrs. Webster know if you would like to have her submit your creation for the contest. She has to mail them on Friday!!!)

      You will have all day today and the next class period to produce one or several front pages to present to the Bellevue Community School District.

      COMPLETE YOUR FRONT COVER FOR THE DISTRICT NEWSLETTER!!

Here is a way to add a photo to a piece of clipart:

  1. Look for a St. Patrick’s Day item of some kind online and save it to your drive.
  2. Open the St. Patrick’s Day picture and the picture of one of the dance team members (in a folder on your drive) in Photoshop
  3. Make the background layer an image layer in each photo–click on the Background layer and from the Layer menu choose New and then Layer From Background
  4. Select the girl (from the new layer!)–remember to ZOOM and maybe use the magnetic lasso–remember to use the ADD TO SELECTION and the SUBTRACT FROM SELECTION
  5. KEEP THE GIRL SELECTED and go to the St. Patrick’s Day picture
  6. Select the St. Patrick’s Day object (from the new layer!)–remember to ZOOM and maybe use the magnetic lasso–remember to use the ADD TO SELECTION and the SUBTRACT FROM SELECTION
  7. From the Window menu, choose to Arrange–Tile Vertically
  8. Click on the girl picture–click on the Clone Stamp tool–ALT-CLICK in the middle of your girl selection–be sure you have the correct layer in the girl picture selected!
  9. Click in the middle of your St. Patrick’s Day object and then click and drag–IT’S MAGIC!! YEH!!!
  10. Save the picture as a JPEG file to your drive and when you are asked about the quality, choose the highest possible quality.
  11. Repeat the procedure for the other girls’ photos.

That is only what I DID–you might find a better way

  1. IMPORTANT CHANGE: Open your Publisher file for the Bleacher Blowout program and do the following:
    1. File menu
    2. Page Setup
    3. Scroll to the Booklets section
    4. Choose 1/2 Letter Booklet 5.5 X 8.5″
    5. OK
  2. ANOTHER IMPORTANT CHANGE: Make sure the National Anthem comes first in the order!!

PART I: COMPLETE USING PHOTOSHOP:

  1. USE PHOTOSHOP FOR THE FRONT & BACK COVERS!!!
  2. You will need to create a new file in Photoshop that is 11 X 8.5–YES it will be landscape!
  3. Once the file is created you may want to draw a line down the page at 5.5–the page to the RIGHT of that line will be the FRONT cover and the page to the LEFT of that line will be the BACK cover.
  4. On the front cover you can do whatever you want.  The theme is Leap Over the Rainbow and Dance for Luck.  The performance is March 6th at 5:00.
  5. Make the front cover (and back cover) have some TEXTURE
  6. Use clipart & photos from the web–save them from the web to your drive
  7. Include the date and themes on the front/back covers

PART II: BELLEVUE DANCE TEAM LAYOUT–USING PHOTOSHOP

The Bellevue Dance Team should be placed as a center layout similar to last year’s program. Design this in Photoshop. This will be a new file the same size as the cover.

PART III: COMPLETE USING PUBLISHER:

  1. On the second page is Coach Ploessl’s welcoming. Insert the following in a textbox on page 2:

Welcome family and friends to the Bellevue High School. Tonight we are pleased to announce the 4th Annual Bleacher Blowout. We hope to present a very entertaining show.

On behalf of the Bellevue High School Varsity Dance Team and the 7th and 8th grade Dance Team I would like to give a big thank you to all of our visiting dance and cheer teams. We appreciate your support. Congratulations on your seasons thus far and good luck tonight. Also thank you to all of the campers and the camper’s parents– what a wonderful day of dance we had today.

We would also like to give a big thank you to the Belle-vue Faculty and Administration for all of their support. For the Creative Ventures class for doing our programs and to Mr. Lucke and his Art students for helping with decorations. But most of all we would like to thank our parents for all their hard work in put-ting this event together and for everything they do for us.

Our theme this year is “Leap Over the Rainbow & Dance for Luck”.

We hope you enjoy our show this evening and we en-courage applause and cheers when you see something that you really like.

  1. Flash Chapter 1 Study GuideFlash Chapter 1 Study GuideComplete Flash Chapter 1 today! Including the test!I will not be in class, so do a PRINT SCRN for all assignments you are suppose to show me. Here is what you do:
    1. When your assignment is completed, hold down the CTRL key and then hit the PRINT SCRN button in the top row of your keyboard.
    2. Open a new Word file and PASTE.
    3. You can paste all of your assignments into 1 Word file, just make sure you label each one. I am going to be looking at the timeline, so make sure you have done it correctly before you do the PRINT SCRN!!!!

    You have been hired by your local school district to design their new academic logo. The Iowa Core Curriculum is a new curriculum being rolled out by the state and all schools must adapt their curriculum to meet the expectations of the Iowa Core Curriculum. Bellevue’s Iowa Core Curriculum leadership team is asking you to help them explain the Core to the community through your creation of a Bellevue-Iowa Core Curriculum logo. You need to incorporate Bellevue’s Iowa Core Vision:

    “The Bellevue Community School District will provide a 21st Century education by engaging students in rigorous and relevant curriculum and quality learning experiences to all students to prepare them for life-long learning and success.”

    The Iowa Core incorporates 5 areas:

    1. Science
    2. 21st Century Skills
    3. Literacy
    4. Mathematics
    5. Social Studies

    Bellevue’s Iowa Core Curriculum team would like you to design a Comet that represents the Iowa Core Curriculum. They would like you to include the 5 core areas as the comet tail. They would like the comet to be coming in from the left and on the right they would like keywords from the vision statement–as if the comet is striving to get to “emerging” “rigorous” “relevant” “quality learning experiences” “all students” “life-long learning” “success”.

    Use Photoshop. The best one will be adopted and used by the school district on the web site, in the newspaper, and all around the school and town. MAKE IT HIGH QUALITY!! Use your creative and imagination!!!!

    We are designing the print version of this today. They have also asked to have an animated version of it in the future. We will do this at the completion of the Flash unit. The best one will be displayed on the school’s web site.

    Finish the Iowa Core logo. Today is the last day. Begin Flash Chapter 2 Study Guide.

Continue to work on creating the simple web site from last class.

FYI: When adding Actions to a button, be sure the BUTTON is what the action is being set for AND if you are having difficulty keeping the settings for Actions set to 1.0 & 2.0–go to the File menu, choose Publish Settings, and then specify 2.0.

Create another new web site that is a little bit more involved than the last one. See if you can rely less on the video to help you!!!

GET THE HANDOUT FROM ME FOR SPECIFICS ABOUT THE CONTEST BELOW (THIS IS YOUR TEST!!!)

Subject: IBEA Fall Conference Logo Design Contest

The Iowa Business Educators Association would like offer another contest for students of IBEA member teachers.  We will be having our yearly conference in the Fall 2014 in Des Moines, Iowa. As a part of the conference, there are many materials that will feature our slogan for the conference which is: Meeting the Challenge. 

We would like the help of Iowa students to create a logo that goes along with this slogan. We are looking for something that represents this slogan, not just font changes to IBEA.

Please see the attached flyer for details about the contest. Students need to follow fair use guidelines when creating the logo for the conference.  The student with the winning logo will receive a $50 Amazon gift card and we would also like to recognize them at the IBEA conference in October 2014 at our luncheon (we would pay for their meal).  Entries need to be emailed to me atssmith@crestonschools.org by May 15th in order to be eligible for the contest.

Please contact me if you have any additional questions about the contest,
