Web Design

Section 5-10

Part or all of this lesson was adapted from the University of Washington’s “Web Design & Development I” Course materials


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!)

    (earth)


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

  • 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


Feathering1
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
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.
