Dr. Dale E. Parson

More outline for week 8,

Type tools

perspective cloning
Perspective Cloning
  • Open cschallway.psd.
  • Filter -> Vanishing Point.
  • Create and Adjust a blue Plane Tool up the hallway floor.
  • The Stamp Tool clones according to the perspective.
  • Try cloning a wide tile boundary up the hallway center.
type tools
Type Tools
  • Horizontal and Vertical Type
      • Download from Parsons/Inbox.
      • Open ScottsRunKayak.jpg in Photoshop.
  • Adding horizontal or vertical type creates a new layer.
  • Click a point on the Background for Point Type.
  • Click and drag for Paragraph type.
      • Add some of each, set against Background Layer.
      • Set color in Type Options palette.
  • Font, Point Size, etc. similar to word processing.
type is vector graphics
Type is Vector Graphics
  • Image pixel-based graphics so far constitute raster graphics, a.k.a. bitmapped graphics.
  • Raster graphics are defined in terms of a 2D matrix of pixels displayed on a raster.
  • Vector graphics are description of objects to draw using lines, stokes, etc.
  • A vector can be rendered at any resolution. Only when rendered does it appear as pixels.
rendering vector graphics
Rendering Vector Graphics
  • Font, Point Size, Text Style, Anti-Aliasing Parameters describe the vectors and vector rendering of type.
  • Zoom in on selected text and try anti-aliasing parameters None - Smooth, also zoom out.
  • The rendering process computes pixels.
  • Older generation vector graphics displays actually displayed vectors via electron beams.
re editing text
Re-Editing Text
  • Select the text while in the Type Tool.
  • Paragraphs can be resized and rotated.
  • Control-clicking the Layer allows conversion between Point and Paragraph Type.
  • Text can be pasted into the Type Tool from another application.
  • Text can be imported from Adobe Illustrator.
      • We will start working with Illustrator soon.
transforming text
Transforming Text
  • Type tools allows parameter based changes.
  • Move Tool with Show Transform controls checked allows you to transform text area.
  • Bring up Window -> Character palette.
  • Slide or adjust kerning for between-character spacing.
  • Slide or adjust tracking for multi-character spacing.
character formatting
Character Formatting
  • Character Palette applied to a paragraph allows leading (inter-line spacing) adjustment and horizontal scaling adjustment.
  • Other options at bottom of Character Palette allow additional formatting of character appearance. Baseline shifts bottom of text.
  • Type Option Palette supports changing orientation, alignment, text warping.
paragraph palette
Paragraph Palette
  • Delete Type layers then create a new Paragraph Type layer.
  • Window -> Paragraph Palette.
  • Alignment based on whole words, hyphenated syllables or entire line of text.
  • Give margins and indents in points, inches or centimeters. They convert to points.
layer effects for type
Layer Effects for Type
  • Open a clean copy of ScottsRunKayak.
  • Place a large-font, fat, neutral color text saying “Type” over a dark area.
  • On layers palette click the fx (Effects) icon.
  • Add Bevel and Emboss initially, experiment visually with their effects on text.
  • Add other effects via checkboxes, then adjust their parameters.
layers styles
Layers Styles
  • Get a Type layer effect that you like.
  • Window -> Styles.
  • Save the Style that you just created.
  • Try other Styles from the library.
  • Pattern Overlay is good for text.
rasterizing text
Rasterizing Text
  • To apply bitmap (raster) pixel transformations to a Type layer you must Rasterize it.
  • At that point you can no longer manipulate it as editable type. It has become an image.
  • Control-click and Rasterize the layer.
  • Get type to the image that you want to combine before rasterizing it (if at all).
  • Try out Filter gallery -> Sketch Filters on text.
screening back type
Screening back type
  • Close All, Open ParsonOffice.jpg.
  • Add a layer of big, black, bold text type.
  • Apple-Click the T icon in the Layers Palette to select the text’s pixels.
  • Shut off the text layer’s eyeball.
  • Create a Levels Adjustment Layer.
  • Trash the text layer.
  • Adjust Levels to screen the text back in.
reusing type derived layer mask
Reusing type-derived layer mask
  • Once you have the layer mask, you can duplicate the layer.
  • You can unlink the layer mask from the duplicate layer.
  • You can add another adjustment layer.
  • You can move a layer mask copy into it.
  • You can copy-move a layer mask to a Smart Filter layer as well.
hacking text
Hacking Text
  • Use some novel, fat fonts.
  • Create some fresh rasterized text.
  • Use Selection and Move tools to tear it apart and put it back together again.
  • Use vector-generated font graphics as visual building blocks.
assignment 6
Assignment 6
  • Create a Folder called Type. This is the last assignment to focus on Photoshop mechanics.
  • Use your own photographic images. Bring them to class on November 2.
  • This assignment requires one completed image. It focuses on the Type Tool integrated into an image.
  • On November 2 we are also going to discuss aesthetics, and brainstorm about a final project in Photoshop. Bring some ideas to class.
assignment 6 type
Assignment 6 – Type
  • Do something creative with Type Tool that integrates type into an image. Use your imagination.
  • Make a poster, an advertisement, a flyer, or integrate some poetry into an image.
  • This one is due on November 11 as
  • I will look for at least 4 substantial type transforms, for example level effects and post-rasterization transforms. Make sure to include your log file description of these steps.
