Create a word, or a Name...
Can you read the "words" below?
In Your Documents should have a folder you made called “Photo 3”, in that folder you should have made a folder called “(your last name) Projects”, and another one called “(last name) Scans”
inside the Projects folder you should have made a folder called “(last name) Letter Project”,
and another one called “(last name) Montage Project”
Also you should have made a folder on the colored lanyard flashdrive (roygbv) in the Photo 3 folder called “your last name then first name” (and remember which color lanyard you used!)
Demo and Directions for Converting your color images to black and white in PhotoShop:
Objective: swbat convert a color digital image to black and white using the Layers black and white conversion sliders in PhotoShop. Review using Demo Video below!
1. Open Adobe PhotoShop
2. Go to File, open (select your photo)
3. Across top bar go to Image, look at “Image size” and resolution-what is it?
(If it is a tiny 1” picture or low resolution it won’t work-choose a different picture)
4. change image to 7” length (tall) and resolution change to 300dpi
4. click OK
5. Go to Layer across top then new adjustment layer then black and white
6. Use the sliding levers to adjust individual reds-blues-greens-yellows-etc until satisfied
7. click OK
8. “Save as” to your documents as a photo shop file then “save as” again as a jpg file, change using
down arrow - name it by giving it your last name and then identify the letter
9. Save final letters to the flash drive under your name and project
10. Print the letter photo by going to file, print, in the dialog box choose the HP printer not the one note,
use the down arrow. Printing two at a time will save paper, but to start lets just print what you have and see what could be improved...
Improving contrast: to attain a full value scale if you are missing some aspect of it (no whites for example)
1. Go to Layer, new Adjustment Layer, Levels
2. Move arrow on left, right, to beginning of curve
3. Move arrow on right, left, to beginning of curve
4. then “Save as” described above in number 8, 9
The video at this link will demonstrate the Photo Shop technique:
We will evaluate one letter at a time as we edit and print each out using the ONE LETTER RUBRIC, after you evaluate your letter using the chart, one classmate must also evaluate your letter before you submit the Rubric. This assessment of your work in progress will help you make your work it's best before you finalize the project for a grade. The letter won't be graded yet, but completion of the rubric will graded and counted as a quiz grade.
You can download this rubric for use anytime below by clicking on the filename.
The next Rubric is for the final grade on the project, also downloadable, you must complete the self assessment column and hand this form in with your final mounted project.
VOCABULARY FOR THIS UNIT:
CONTRAST: the difference between two things, in photography, it is the difference in brightness or color that makes an object distinguishable.
MONOCHROMATIC: Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. Tints are achieved by adding white and shades and tones are achieved by adding a darker color, grey or black. Black and white photography is considered monochromatic.
VALUE SCALE: In the absence of color, we rely on values to define the detail of the image. Value is the element of art that describes the amount of lightness or darkness in a hue. In a black and white photo, white is the lightest value, and black is the darkest value.
JPEG: Stands for "Joint Photographic Experts Group." JPEG is a popular image file format, photographs in jpeg or jpg format are easier to work with on all computers. Please save your files both as a PS (Photo Shop) file and as a jpg file. If you save only as a PS file you cannot open the picture unless you have Photo shop.
RESOLUTION: In computers, resolution is the number of pixels (individual points of color) contained on a display monitor, expressed in terms of the number of pixels on the horizontal axis and the number on the vertical axis. The sharpness of the image on a display depends on the resolution and the size of the monitor. Most photos on the internet are 72 dpi (for "dots per inch" ) but we want to work with a higher resolution in Photo Shop of 300 dpi, so we will change that in Photoshop when we change the size of the image.
LAYER: In graphics software, a layer is the term used to describe the different levels at which you can place an object or image file.
Photoshop: is considered one of the leaders in photo editing software. The software allows users to manipulate, crop, resize, and correct color on digital photos.
Pixel: The pixel (a word invented from "picture element") is the basic unit of programmable color on a computer display or in a computer image. It appears as a small square when you zoom in to a photograph on a computer screen. If a picture has a low resolution, the pixels are very big and can be seen, they don't look very good and that picture would be called "pixelated."
SLIDER: A slider or track bar is a graphical control element with which a user may set a value by moving an indicator, usually in a horizontal fashion. In Photo Shop, a slider will be used to change the lightness or darkness of a color.
