Turn off your iPad. It is not to be used (in any way) in this classroom, either for academic or recreational use (unless approved by the instructor). Ignoring this will result in detention and further disciplinary action (Gross Misconduct/Refusal to comply). Not gonna lie - I absolutely hate them. Did you remember to put your assignments in a folder? Did you label the folder after the assignment title? Did you save your file in the appropriate manner? If not: NO GRADE! Check your PowerSchool frequently. It's your RESPONSIBILITY!

Photoshop Layer Exercises

Due Date: January 23

Photoshop Layer Exercise 1

Learning the concept of layering is an essential building block of the Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop environments. Layer Exercise 1 is designed to help the student design and develop basic layering skills, using the layers pallette and options that assist in organizing objects, shapes, and layers into workable arrangements 

Photoshop Layer Exercise 2

The continuation of Layer Exercise 1, Layer Exercise 2 takes the student beyond simple layer stacking and into the practice of layer linking, layer masking, and layer blending. 

Photoshop Layer Styles

The final phase of the layer study, Layer Styles 1 explores the ready-built effects and enhancements for mult-layer compositions using effects like glows, bevels, drop-shadows, gradients, textures, fills, and strokes.

When you are finished, this is how your Photoshop document should appear. Be sure to save the final version as a Photoshop PSD and PDF file in your folder.
