Day 127

Today I will be working on Adobe photoshop 2018: photography. I am on chapter 5, section 1. We also have career center today. My work will be shown below….


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.37.58 PM.pngUnder the file menu, I chose place embedded and then opened the portrait01 file and clicked on enter to apply it.


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.39.34 PM.pngI then went under the layer menu and chose smart objects and selected new object via copy. Photoshop then made a copy of this smart object. I repositioned it over to the right.


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.41.42 PM.pngI double clicked on the thumbnail for the copy of this smart object so I could edit the image. I then went under the image menu, adjustments, and then invert. I then saved this and close the contents of the smart objects


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.44.45 PM.pngI erased the image that I inverted but I did make another copy of the original picture and moved it towards the right.


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.46.31 PM.pngI used command + J (shortcut to copy) to copy this image and post it in the leftover squares.


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.48.25 PM.pngI double clicked on the thumbnail and opened edit contents of that smart object. I chose image, adjustments, and invert and then I saved this change and closed the change. I then saw that all the duplicates were changed because they were duplicated of the same embedded smart object.


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.51.32 PM.pngI undid that by using the command + Z and it changed back to the original image.


Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.52.56 PM.pngI honestly didn’t know how to duplicate an image until this lesson. I bet I’ve been taught before on Lynda lessons but I forgot until now. So what I did was pull up an image on my computer and duplicate the image by using the command + J key.


I will attend career center now.


Today in career tech we learned that there will be problems when working but their are methods to work out a dilemma.












Day 126

Today I will be taking a photoshop brainbench test. Afterwards, I will work on Adobe photoshop 2018: photography. My work will be shown below….


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.17.20 PM.png

I finally passed this one!


I will continue on chapter 4, section 5.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.22.55 PM.pngI have opened up the image on photoshop. I then went under the photoshop CC menu and clicked on preferences and went to transparency and gamut.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.24.37 PM.pngI returned to my preferences to transparency and gamma. I then returned the setting to none.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.27.29 PM.pngI changed the stacking order of the two layers and then went under the layer menu and chose create clipping mask.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.29.42 PM.pngTo create a duplicate of the mountain layer, I held down on the command key and clicked and dragged.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.30.43 PM.pngOn the layers panel, I added a new layer mask.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.37.14 PM.pngI then tapped the g key(shortcut for the gradient tool) to select the gradient tool. I right clicked to make sure the tools reset and dragged a gradient from white to black starting from the lower right hand corner and going to the upper left.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.38.25 PM.pngI held down the option key and drag up towards the top of the layers stack.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.41.39 PM.pngI held down on the option key and clicked on the layer mask.


Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 2.45.20 PM.pngI selected the B key(shortcut for brush tool) to select brush tool and made sure I was painting with white as my foreground color and changed my opacity to 25% and then went over the bird to reveal any details that I wanted to see.


Tomorrow I will start on Chapter 5, section 1.

Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.04.03 PM.pngnope


Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.12.17 PM.pngIm using a picture of my dog but I first went to images and hovered my mouse over adjustments and selected threshold. I then adjusted it to my liking.


Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.15.18 PM.pngI then used the paintbrush to pain the white that I didn’t need in the image. I made sure the white was selected for the paint color.


Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.16.45 PM.pngI selected the crop tool and cropped areas that I didn’t want on the image.


Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.20.41 PM.pngI used the pencil tool to draw in some detail on the dog like hair but it turned out not so good especially on his chest. This is also the finished product but just ignore the chest hair that I drew on him.

Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.33.22 PM.png

Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 2.37.03 PM.pngI honestly don’t know what I did. I selected threshold and adjusted it to my liking. I tried following a youtube video but I didn’t understand it.

Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 2.25.42 PMI used the quick selection tool to select different places of the bush and make the color darker bottom to top.


After….Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 2.31.18 PMI honestly don’t have a plan for this picture. I am messing around with the tools.




Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 2.40.28 PM


Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 2.48.54 PMI inverted the image and then added a color balance adjustment layer and rose my yellow towards the blue.


Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 2.51.22 PMAnother adjustment layer but this time it was black and white. I lowered the blue.


AfterScreen Shot 2018-03-09 at 2.53.12 PMBrightness/contrast layer so the image wont look so dark since it is already has a black and white filter.
