Photoshop ideas for Educators

Some ideas using Photoshop CS4 for teachers to adapt to their lessons and for students to use to enhance their projects. First how to delete the background from an image to then use in another context, eg on a map that is coloured and enhanced in Photoshop. Also make a quick selection of an object to move to another image. And how to add a background, colour in a selected area and the type tool. The feedback and review forms in the portfolio were developed for the Train the Trainer course. They are very simple. Materials: Photoshop CS4, PDF reader.
