Assignment #33

  (10 points)

  1. Watch the video Essential Photoshop Skills: Flower and Leaf   (CC).
  2. Create an image similar to the way the graphic is created in the video and shown below. You may 1) download the images "flower.jpg" and "leaf.jpg" from the Assignment #33 subdirectory, 2) use your own images, or 3) find and download images using your favorite search engine. However, insert either your first or last name rather than the caption "TEXT".

  3. Save your work as "assignment33.jpg" when you are finished.
    Note: If using an image other than the picture provided, create a single, wider image that combines your before and after images. Similar to the combined image shown above. This way, I can visualize and grade your work by displaying one image.

  4. Upload this file(s) to YOUR-CLASS-WEBSITE.   Help
