In this Adobe Photoshop lesson, students begin with a photo of a giraffe and a photo of a boar and through the magic of Photoshop place the giraffe's skin on the boar's body. The end result is not only an entirely new animal, but a new knowledge of Photoshop including adjusting opacity, making and modifying selections, using free transform, using the Liquify Tool, adjusting Levels, using the Clone Stamp Tool and much more. This assignment usually takes students several days to complete and ends with them having to find animal images of their own with each student creating a new, unique creature.
This lesson assumes students have never used Photoshop. Includes instructions for Photoshop CS3 and CS6, but can be easily adjusted for use with any version of the software. Offered in .doc 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!
