  1. adobe photoshop digital image making

  2. Adobe PhotoShop is an image-editing program that lets you create and edit digital images. • PhotoShop is part of the Adobe Creative Suite (which also has Illustrator, InDesign, Flash and Dreamweaver) the basics

  3. File > New • Width and height: • Creates the canvas size of your image • Resolution: • 300 pixels/inch (dpi) for print • 72 pixels/inch (dpi) for screen • Presets: have common paper and photo sizes • Orientation: • Portrait • Landscape document setup

  4. Digital images are made up of pixels. • pixels: represent different shades or colors to make up an image • Resolution: measurements that describe the digital quality of something • Image Resolution: determined by the number of pixels per inch (ppi or dpi) that are printed on a page • high resolution images show greater detail and more subtle color transitions • the higher the number the better the quality • Device resolution: measured by the highest capacity resolution the device can output (cameras, printers, monitors) • Good explanation here: http://www.vividlight.com/articles/3116.htm the basics

  5. bitmap versus vector • bitmap: type of file created out of pixels on a grid • aka raster • resolution dependent • photo files are usually bitmap • jpeg, psd, bmp, gif, tiff, pcx, png • vector: type of file that created from equations • able to scale a vector without losing quality (becoming pixelated) • ai, eps, pdf file types

  6. the workspace page 1-17, in textbook

  7. File > Place • Layer > Rasterize > Smart Object • (allows you to edit layer after placing it) or • File > Open; Select All > Move importing images

  8. transform: change the shape, size, perspective, or rotation of an object • Command T or • Edit > Free Transform or • Edit > Transform > one of transform options • ALWAYS HOLD SHIFT WHEN SCALING, ETC. TO KEEP IMAGE IN PERSPECTIVE! transforming images

  9. layer: a section within an image on which objects can be stored • advantage: individual effects can be isolated and manipulated without affecting the rest of the image • disadvantage: layers can increase the size of your file • Remember: the order of your layers in the layer panel determines the order of your layers on the canvas layers

  10. selections • selection: an area in an image that is surrounded by a selection marquee. • marquee: dashed line that surrounds the area you want to edit or move to another image - selection tools rectangular marquee tool elliptical marquee tool single row and column marquee tool crop tool magic wand tool lasso tool polygonal lasso tool eraser tool background eraser tool magic eraser tool

  11. opacity: determines the percentage of transparency • 100% opacity will obstruct layers beneath it • 1% opacity will appear nearly transparent editing images

  12. type: design world’s name for text • measured in points (pt) • 1 inch equivalent to about 72 points • Remember: each time you add type, it will create a new layer • font: characters with a similar appearance • serif: characters have a tail/stroke • sans serif: characters do not have tails; usually used in headlines, etc. • Window > Character, Window > Paragraph: The character and paragraph panels will show options for type. working with type

  13. type spacing: adjustments you can make to the space between characters and between lines of type • kerning: controlling the amount of space between two characters • tracking: the insertion of a uniform amount of space between characters • leading: amount of vertical space between lines of type working with type

  14. Always save as you work! • Always have a version of your file in the original software (PhotoShop> .psd). • flattening: merges all visible layers into a single Background layer and discards all hidden • good idea to save an original, unflattened version of your file because you CANNOT unflatten once you save • flatten command located in layers panel • Format for saving files: • lastname_firstname_projecttitle • example: tieriton_kathleen_selfportrait saving files
