For Next Week

Required: Using at least three different images...
The podcasts linked/discussed above deal with basic compositing, selection techniques and layer masks. Those are the key skills you'll needed.

Goal: Create three distinctly different images by varying only blend modes, layer opacity and layer masks.

Your full-size, Photoshop image should be at least 4mpix.

Create a lower-resolution version of your images for uploading to DropBox.
Follow the steps illustrated here to create a 2-megapixel version of your image for in-class viewing.

Save those images to your DropBox Art265_Photography folder.
Create a folder called: Ex6_BlendModePlay
a) the low-res version of your Photoshop file
b) the initial source images, and the final 3 images, each as JPGs.
