Animation in the Classroom? Yes you can, it is easy.

Posted on Dec 15, 2014 by Trevor Milevskiy Last Activity on Dec 16, 2014

Animation is a powerful tool to use in the classroom, however many think that creating a simple animation can be very difficult. This PD should help those who are willing to try something new by creating two types of animations using the motion feature in Photoshop. I have had the opportunity to present this PD to a group of 24 adults recently. While the plan worked, one of the biggest challenges was the amount of time allowed for the session. By the time all the participants were ready to begin I lost 5 minutes which meant that an already tight session became more so, in terms of the time allocations. To overcome this the PD plan has been changed from one session to two sessions. Another challenge was that some of the participants did not bring their computer to the session which meant they had to work with another person. While this was not ideal it did allow for those with limited skills to work with participants with better skills. All the feedback provided by the participant... Read More

Create a Poetry App for the iPad 1

Posted on Dec 15, 2014 by Siobhán Murphy Last Activity on Dec 15, 2014

This lesson is proposed as the first of three sessions during which participants will create a magazine-style poetry app for the iPad. This (first) session deals with creating an animated title/intro page in Photoshop (think of it as an animated front cover for a magazine). The completed 5 second video that will be created in direct and guided practice may be viewed here. Here is a link to the resources created for this plan. 'title_intro.mp4' – MP4 of final video, so participants can see what they are working towards. 'title_intro.psd' – so participants can cycle through the layers during direct instruction, to see the effect of each step. 'daylight.jpg' and 'ambient.m4a' – so participants can recreate the video in Photoshop, during guided practice. 'session1_notes.pdf' – e-copy of notes to be emailed to participants (with clickable links to further resources). 'session1_notesPRINT.pdf' – hard-copy hand-outs for class, for use during guided and ind... Read More

Tribal Animal Designs

Posted on Dec 10, 2014 by MaryEllen Bridges Last Activity on Dec 10, 2014

This project involved using a Bamboo drawing tablet in Photoshop.  The students found a photograph of an animal that they wanted to use. Some brought in their own photos and others found them online. A high resolution image is important so that when it is enlarged their is no breakdown of the details. Close-ups work best. Open the image in Photoshop and crop it if necessary to create a strong composition. Size it to at least an 8.5" x 11" print document. High resolution is best, especially if you want to enlarge them to poster size. We used 200. The few students that never changed it from the 72 from the internet lost a lot of detail when we enlarged them. Add a transparent layer. Using the Bamboo tablet, select various brush sizes and do a basic contour drawing of animal. You are not drawing in details, just capturing the basic form of the animal. Take the eyeball off of the photograph periodically to make sure you haven't missed any important shapes. I encourage my students to... Read More

However, you can also mimic the effect in Photoshop, which actually gives more control over the final output with the ability to adjust and preview the effect as you go. Follow this step by step tutorial to create a double exposure effect yourself. You will blend two existing photographs together with the help of some simple clipping and masking techniques.
