Class 17: Photoshop Layers, In-Class Assignment

We will watch the following video to get a general sense of what layers are and what we can do with them. Note that text functions in its own layer in Photoshop.

You have a short assignment to complete this class. Your task is to make a poster advertising the “Knights’ Fayre” event taking place this weekend at RSGC. Your poster should consist of a Photoshop file with several layers, text and effects. Please select what you think is important textual information from the link above. Some of the things you might want to include:

  • brush effects
  • super-impositions using selection tools (add to a photo)
  • Altering transparency and opacity of the layers
  • Alter the overall look of your image through changes in the Image menu

Due by end of class. Insert the image into a blog post called “Knights’s Fayre” and, also, email the file. I will mark it out of 20.
