objectives
Objectives

The student will

  • Understand the different selection tools and when to use them
  • Use selection tools to select part of an image and copy that image to another picture
  • Use feathering to soften image boundaries
  • Understand the use of “opacity” to make layers transparent
selection tools
Selection Tools
  • There are many tools for selection of parts of a picture:
    • Marquee tools
    • Lasso tools and Mask tools
    • Quick Selection tools
    • Pen Tools
marquee tools
Marquee Tools
  • The marquee tools select areas of different shapes
  • Hold the space key down to move your selection around (do not let go of the mouse!)

lasso tools
Lasso Tools
  • Lasso tools allow you custom surround any area. Give you a rough outline of the area.
  • You can then use the quick mask tool to refine your selection.

Quick Select Tools
  • Quick Select tools try to find the edges of objects. Once you have selected an object you can:
    • Hold the Shift key down and add to the selection
    • Hold the Alt key down and subtract from the selection
    • (face)
feathering
Feathering
  • To make a selection have a less “cropped” look you can set a mask and then “feather” your mask
    • Do the selection
    • Click on the mask button in the layers panel

Feathering
  • Click on the Mask tab
  • Set the “Feather:” up until the edges of the picture look good to you
magic wand tool
Magic Wand Tool
  • The magic wand tool works by selecting a consistently colored area (e.g. background).
    • You set the tolerance for the changes in color.
  • Note: You can invert the selection (select just the hand) by clicking Select > Inverse

opacity
Opacity
  • Changing the “opacity” of a layer changes how transparent that layer is.
  • The higher the opacity the more solid the image appears.
layering images to create a banner
Layering Images to Create a Banner
  • Once you have your images is easy to use the move tool to bring them together as layers in a single file.
  • Set the order the layers appear on the screen by changing the order in the layers panel.

Rest of today
  • Create a new document (600 x 150) or if you want a thicker banner 600 x 200
  • Use the rectangle tool to create a background (use gradients etc if desired)
  • Find at least 3 images from the web or from the selection_practice.zip file on the Hancock webpage
  • Practice making selections and moving those images to your new picture.
  • Use feathering and opacity to change how the images blend together.
