Double Exposure Photography

Posted on Nov 26, 2014 by Jessica Gauci Last Activity on Nov 26, 2014

Traditionally the double exposure effect is produced by photographers using nothing but their camera to combine two separate photographs to create an abstract and surreal image. 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.

Assessment 2 (After Effects): Such GIFs Very Animating

Posted on Nov 19, 2014 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 23, 2014

This assessment task is a good end to an After Effects unit and is a great test of a range of skills. I use this to assess the skills the students have learned running through my After Effects and Photoshop tutorials - which can be found on my Education Exchange profile. This is the second of 3 assessment tasks that I run at year 9 in Multimedia and Web Programming (but it could very easily be used at another level). This task also serves as a good exploration of students understanding of Copyright, Creative Commons and Usage Rights. Also included is a rubric designed for maximum student benefit. Achievement at each level is explained in clear, student friendly language. This is a new style of rubric I have been working on - I have received positive feedback from students and have found it easy to use. More feedback very welcome

Environmental Posters

Posted on Nov 16, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Nov 26, 2014

This assignment is designed for grades 6-8. Students are to create a "Call to Action" poster for the environment using InDesign and Illustrator. I start by writing numbers 1 to 50 on scraps of paper. I crumple them up and students choose a piece of paper with a number. That number corresponds to one of the topics on the 50waystohelp website. Depending on the number of students in your class, you can have students pick two numbers or even three.  Color choice is the key to success with this project. Students will create simple "icon" flat art for their posters using Illustrator. Included is an interactive .pdf with links to sites that can be of help to students as well as a link to the main site: www.50waystohelp.com

Making GIFs from Movie Files

Posted on Nov 16, 2014 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 16, 2014

This short tutorial will run you through one method of converting a video file into a GIF. GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is a bitmap image format in widespread use across the internet. It is very suitable for simple film clips, game sprite data, and animations that are short and don’t have complex colour palette requirements.  This is becoming a really excited new avenue for the art and there are a number of different artists using GIFs in a range of cool contexts. Here are a few examples: http://www.oamul.com/gif/ http://giphy.com/maorisakai/ http://giphy.com/falcaolucas http://giphy.com/centolodigiani http://giphy.com/salih/ http://uproxx.com/webculture/2014/09/best-of-unnecessary-explosions-added-to-gifs-meme/ http://time.com/3388024/when-photos-come-to-life-the-art-of-the-cinemagraph/ For more info on how to animate see my tutorial series called Animating with Adobe After Effects.

Create Composite Images Using Photoshop Mix

Posted on Nov 12, 2014 by Tom Green Last Activity on Nov 12, 2014

Creating composite images is always a lot of fun. Opening Photoshop and taking a bit of something from one image and putting it in another image has always been an adventure. Until now this technique has been tethered to portable or desktop computers but that all changed in mid-October 2014 when Adobe released Photoshop Mix, an iOS application which allows you to create composite images using images on the iPad or stored in the Creative Cloud. Once those images are done, you can send them back to your Creative Cloud  account and … here is where it gets really neat .. open them in Photoshop for further refinement. Here's a quick "How To:"
