Product Description
This lesson give some great work on many of Photoshop's basic tools while creating a fun and engaging image. Students place a full-body person into a cityscape to create a giant. To get the giant to look like he belongs in the city, students must adjust the image to look like he is in front of some elements and behind others in the cityscape, match the brightness/contrast of the two images, and recolor and distort his body to create a convincing shadow. This lesson focuses on making selections as well as adjusting brightness/contrast, hue/saturation, applying transformations, matching color between two images, and using such basic tools as the Eraser, Magnetic Lasso, and Rectangular Marquee. Students also get experience using Copy and Paste, changing Opacity, locking transparent pixels, and creating and renaming layers, and much more.

The tutorial has all students placing the same person in the same city, with an extension activity that requires students to turn themselves into a giant by taking a photo of themselves and placing it in a cityscape. Four additional extension activity suggestions are included to keep all students working until you are ready to move on to the next project.

This lesson assumes students have never used Photoshop. A file is included which lists of all the tools this lesson covers. Instructions are included for Photoshop CS3 and CS6 (the CS6 instructions are more detailed and included additional screenshots), but can be easily adjusted for use with any version of the software. Offered in .docx format to allow you to edit and personalize the instructions to meet the needs of your class/course.

Don't bother with poorly written tutorials on the Internet that you can't edit - download, modify, and use this lesson with your students today! Enjoy!
