Week 7 – Photoshop 102

Layer Mask Exercise:

We were tasked with using layer masks. Layer masking is something that Im quite unfamiliar with so I found this task to be rather interesting. The steps that we were instructed with contained some steps that I was familiar with in terms of layering and moving images around photoshop. We needed to take the image of the rocks, and place them inside the image of the field.

I wanted the rocks to look like a sculpture in the middle of nowhere basically. That is what led me to make the decisions on the size and position of the rocks.

Advanced Selections:

Then we were tasked to cut out a cat and place it within a background

The forest image

I chose the image of the forest and using the quick selection tool, masking layers, and colour adjustments I placed the cat in the forest.
