Photoshop Collage

Posted on Sep 28, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 28, 2014

I do this with my students every year and get good results. I select 8 photos- some stock, some that I have taken, and have the students create a photo using 5 of the photos. This is a culminating project where students are expected to use all of the Photoshop skills that they have used during the year. I insist that students make at least three different versions and save them using Layer Comps. I have the students turn-in .psd files which I check for the layer comps, layers, etc. The download contains instructions, rubrica list of vocabulary that students are expected to know, and several of the excellent Adobe .pdf "how to" files.

InDesign: Cropping

Posted on Sep 26, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 26, 2014

Usually I associate cropping photos with Photoshop, but so many times it happens on the fly when working in InDesign. Students need to experiment with cropping - they tend to use photos exactly as they were taken.

I cannot access this lesson that I posted on May 29, 2012 and I want to include it in the Syllabus that I am building using the groovy Adobe Education Exchange syllabus builder, so I am uploading this sheet again. Sorry for this. It is a great trick and students love playing with this. I have had some interesting results over the years.

This is an assignment that I use for Grades 4-12. Students will submit their Packaged InDesign file AND a .pdf of their final poster design. Students are expected to get their images from http://www.metmuseum.org/collection/the-collection-online, use Photoshop and Illustrator to create and manipulate graphics. It is a good culminating project.  Rubric is included. I also have a list of Samara's Rules included with this assignment. Timothy Samara's books are terrific resources in my classroom. His design advice is straight-forward and easy to understand.

Adobe Illustrator Avatar/Character Page

Posted on Sep 24, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 29, 2014

This is an Illustrator AI. file with two heads and a assortment of hair, eyes, noses, mouths for beginning Illustrator students to play with and learn the basics of dragging and dropping, changing colors, creating new colors, and hopefully advance to creating additional items for their avatars.  Simple clothes would probably be the easiest for students to attempt. I use this with students starting at Grade 3! It's never too young for Illustrator. Anyway - enjoy - use it however you wish. I welcome any feedback and additions!
