More amazing pictures! :)

You can’t tell me those pictures are crazy awesome!

Randy wasn’t here, so we made these will he was gone. First we made the penguin slide on its belly from him standing up. We used the patch tool to help hide the second penguin we didn’t need and then I transformed it to have its on its belly. Then moved his head to make it look more like he was sliding not falling!

In the elephant one, we learned how to overlay a picture over another one. We layered two pictures which were the Vintage picture and the Elephant. Then we masked the Vintage picture over the elephant to make it look like that! I had so much fun making this one!


It’s crazy what we could do with Photoshop! We restord the old image, and cloned the stairwell without the wood on it!

With the Old Image, we just used the healing brush to clone the background and it helped blend it in with the rest of the picture and make it look more modern. Then we fixed his clothes and hair with the cloning tool. For his tie we used the patch tool which helped because if we used the stamp tool it wouldn’t look right and with the patch tool it copied a piece of the tie to make it look like we didn’t just clone the tie. Then we fixed up his hair with the same tool. Repairing his fore hard was one of the challenging parts of this picture because we had to clone the right piece of his forehead to make it blend in with everything.

And for the Stairwell, we used the stamp tool once again and took every piece of the stairs to cover up the piece of wood that was up there. Then we fixed the bottom right corner and covered up the ladder and junk near the door with a mix of the healing tool and stamp tool.

We learned to layer pictures on top of each other and cleaned them to look more realistic.

Burning Down the House.

We first layered the Kid’s Stuff picture on top of the House. Masked the Kid’s Stuff picture and covered up the background and used the cloning tool to extend the flowers. Then we added the Sand and the sea picture to the background to make it look like smoke. After we used a flame picture to add fires to the house. Making it seem like the children started the fire. I added my own touches to the picture by adding Voldemort 🙂


Model City.

For this picture we first layered the model picture on top of the Shoreside picture. Masked the models background and masked her clothes and glasses. Then we used the blur filter to blur the background!

One of the first things we learned in Multimedia was how to colorize a black and white picture. We did this by masking parts of the pictures and being able to change it’s color by colorizing it and doing that to the rest of the picture instead of just leaving it black and white.

I really love being in Multimedia! It’s one of the classes I look forward to all week. Since I’m one of the legacies in DSA, I kind of new what I was getting into. When we were learning how to use photoshop for the first time, I was a bit confused, but I slowly got used to it. I love coming into class and going straight to my computer, logging in and finding our we’re learning something new and making a picture amazing!
