Digital Tech 120 - This week, you will be introduced to Adobe Photoshop CS4. Today you are to do an introductory task on the best and worst of photoshop and report your findings. Step 1 - go to the following Youtube videos and observe the power of this software package: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omBfg3UwkYM  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVY6VqfASOM&feature=relatedhttp://www.you... 2 - there are literally 13,000,000 images of Photoshop fails on a simple Google search. Open a microsoft powerpoint project and create ten slides of captured fails and tell the story behind them. To complete this task you will have to search around - don't just pull random failed images that do not have an explanation behind them. Step 3 - See if you can figure out where the failed photoshopper went wrong with the software - was there a part of the image left behind? Are backgrounds not properly blended? In modifying parts of the picture, did the creator bend both time and space? On each slide, indicate the problem.Step 4 - Create 5 slides of excellent examples of proper photoshop use with before and after pictures. This is where we will spend our time. On each slide, answer the questions from step 3. This task tests your existing knowledge of Powerpoint software AND your ability to find specific information online and capture it in presentation format. Try to use a variety of images FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES and keep it class appropriate.
