Photoshop Elements Assignment

We are going to work on post production now.  Post production is when you modify your photos after you have taken them.

Your assignment will be
  •  Select 10 photos from your portfolio. 
  •  Give a title to each one ( it is important to use a name instead of a number)
  •  Keep the original photo
  •  Edit the photo using the videos below.  Choose one photo for each video.  (6 of them)
  • You may do more than one edit per photo.  You need to keep track of what you are doing and add this information to your slide.
  •  Once you have edited each one you need to rename the photo to illustrate what you have done i.e. tree become tree (cropped)
  • With the remaining 4 photos edit them at will but make sure you keep track of what you have done in the edit.
  • All 20 photos need to be a Flickr set.  Please upload to Flickr, make sure they are named, tagged and in a set called *Name* Photoshop Set
You will be putting these photos into a Google Presentation (minimum 31 slides).  For each photo you need to explain why you have chosen the edit that you have and how it has improved each photo.
