    LESSON #1- Blending Different Pictures
    Today, we will be making a graphic similar to this:


    First, open up the two pictures you wish to use.
    (I chose this and this)

    Resize them down to the size you need them. I suggest the width be around 1000 pixels.

    Open up a 500x200 white canvas.

    Copy & Paste one of the pictures onto the canvas.

    Move Picture #1 to the right of the canvas.

    Sharpen or Smart Sharpen Picture #1.

    Take the dropper tool (looks like a turkey baster/eye dropper) and pick the main color to the left of the picture.

    Get the brush tool and color in the left side of the canvas, just barely overlapping with Picture #1. (If your picture fills up the whole canvas, don't bother with this step)

    Create a new layer.

    Copy & Paste Picture #2 onto the canvas, resize it again if you have to, and smart/sharpen it.

    Go to the Blending options, and pick "Hard Light" or "Soft Light". I prefer Hard Light because it blends it in better. (**Feel free to play with this part)

    Adjust the curves to your preference, Hue, Saturation, or just leave it as is.

    Add your credit and WALA! You've just blended two pictures into a graphic :)

    HOMEWORK
    Create a blended graphic using this tutorial. DUE May 25

    I WILL BE ON VACATION JUNE 28-JULY 13

    Okay, class, today we'll be learning how to properly cut out images, and how to color your graphics.

    LESSON #1: Cutting out an image

    If you have photoshop, use the pen tool for this tutorial.
    If you have pixlr or Gimp, use the lasso tool for this.

    Pixlr/Gimp:

    Step 1: Open up your desired picture.
    Step 2: Click on the lasso tool, and in the upper-left corner, there should be an option between a rounded lasso, and a polygonal lasso. Click on the polygonal lasso.
    Step 3: Set the feather to 1.
    Step 4: Click all around the outline of what you want to cut out, and when you're finished, connect the last point where you clicked to the beginning point.
    Step 5: Go to edit, copy, and then click on where you want the cut-out to be placed. Then, click edit, paste.
    Finished!

    Photoshop:

    Step 1: Open up your desired picture.
    Step 2: Click on the pen tool.
    Step 3: Start tracing the edges of the picture, from top to bottom. Once you're finished, connect the end point to the beginning point. If you make a mistake, don't worry! Just go to edit>step backwards and continue.
    Step 4: After you've traced the edges, right click (or ctrl>left click) the image, and select "Make Selection"
    Step 5: A pop-up will show, and if you want a clean cut, type in "0" for Feather Radius, but if you want it to be slightly blurred, type in "1" or "2".
    Step 5: Go to Edit>copy, click on your background that you want it placed on, and go to Edit>paste.
    Finished!


    LESSON #2: Coloring an image

    Pixlr/Gimp:

    Step 1: Select your desired picture you want to color, and open it up.
    Step 2: Start with curves. Go to adjustment>curves, and adjust it how you want it. How I usually do mine:

    Step 3: In the layers box, click on the original image. Now, go to layer>duplicate layer. Go to adjustment>Desaturate. Now, in the layers box, there should be a little box that looks like this:

    Click that, and set the mode to "Hardlight". Now, lower the opacity to around 25% or 30%.
    Step 4: Click on the original image in the layers box. Go to Adjustment> Brightness & Contract. Play around with the settings until you're happy.
    Step 5: Click on the original image in the layers box. Go to adjustments>color vibrance and play with the setting until you're happy.
    Step 6: Click on the original image in the layers box. Go to Adjustments>Color balance and play with the settings. Keep it subtle, though, so that it's not too extreme.
    Step 7: Click on the desaturated layer in the layers box, and add a new layer. fill in that entire new layer with one solid color, then play with the mode setting and opacity until you like it.
    Finished!

    Side note: You can play with the adjustments all you want, but this is just a good place to start at.
