31 PhotoShop Portfolio - (COMMON ASSESSMENT) ... Watch this video (wear headsets) to learn how to create a Photoshop Web Gallery (see sample below). The gallery will contain two frames. The left frame will have your full name, the date, and Photoshop - block 7 in the upper left corner. beneath this information, you will have a miniature image of each project completed during the quarter; in the larger right frame, each individual will load to display a larger version of each project. The portfolio is due January 24. Projects 4, 14, and 27 will not appear in the web portfolio.



Final Exam - the exam consists of two parts. Thefirst, is a self-scoring theory exam; the second is production based. You have worked hard this semester in our Photoshop course. As a reward, you are treating yourself to a vacation to the destination of your choice. Photoshop a picture of yourself into a picture from somewhere else. I.e. a picture of you in front of the Eiffel tower, a picture of you next to a pyramid in Egypt, etc. Make it look as if you belong in the picture- be aware of proportions! When you have it done, combine it with an image of a post card and add a witty line like "Mexico- Wish you were here!" Etc. Extra points will be given to postage stamps, wear and tear marks, etc. The finished project should be 75 DPI and saved in jpeg format.

The official theory exam will be posted here on the date scheduled for the final.
