ADOBE PHOTOSHOP 2021 – SELECTING PORTIONS OF AN IMAGE

One of the keys to mastering Photoshop is efficiently and effectively using the selection tools to select portions of an image that you wish to manipulate. Let’s get started with some basic tools and techniques to select portions of an image.

Objective: 

Based on their understanding of the capabilities of the selection tools available in Photoshop, students will choose the most appropriate tool for a specific selection purpose.

One-Sentence Objective:

Students will be able to select the right tool for any selection task by practicing with a range of different tools and selection tasks within a composite image so that they can produce more efficient and effective Photoshop edits.

Topics Discussed:

  • Arrange Windows (2UP vertical, 2UP horizontal)
  • Magic Wand Tool
  • Quick Select Tool
  • Move Tool
  • Select -> Similar
  • Select -> Inverse

Assignment:

Watch the linked video for an overview of the Selection tools we will be using today.

Using the tools and techniques demonstrated in the video and discussed in class, create a composite image using the Moon image (below) as a background and the Astronaut, Alien, the Moon Buggy and the Cheese in the foreground.

For an additional challenge, apply Layer Effects to change the color of the cheese to green (everyone knows the moon is made of green cheese!) and add a drop shadow to the cheese to make it a little more “realistic” (at least as realistic as a giant piece of green cheese on the moon can look!). For the maximum challenge, use the Puppet Warp technique to add a shadow to the aliens you placed on the moon’s surface!

Make sure each of the images has no traces of a white or black background. Name your layers appropriately. Save your file as “YOURNAME Moon Party.psd” and attach a copy to today’s assignment post in our Google Classroom.

Images:

Note: Click on the image thumbnail first to reveal the full-size image, then right-click the full-size image and choose “Save image as…” to save the file to your Desktop.
