Onion Skinning Notes for Photoshop CCt

  1. Select > Select and Mask (on image you want to cut out; i.e. like the crazy hair in the sample image)
  2. Onion Skin View will appear at right allowing you to adjust the transparency to see more or less of the subject/background. Set transparency to 25%
  3. Using the Quick Selection Brush, paint over the subject and her crazy hair as much as possible, so as to cover
  4. Turn on Smart Radius and move slider quite a bit to the right (see what you’ve selected in black and white mode)
  5. Click Refine Edge Tool Brush from Left and brush around the side of her hair. Some strands will reappear and for other small areas, decrease the size of your brush and hold down alt or option and it should remove what shouldn’t be there in the background. Sometimes, shifting the “edge inward” can shift some of the original color that has shifted when you notice a change in contrast in B&W mode. Do additional color processing after saving changes.
  6. Save to New Layer with Layer Mask > OK

POST YOUR FOODIE PHOTO to Blogger when Finished with Subject “Foodie Photo”

Today’s Question(s): One of the most popular functions of Photoshop is using layers and masks. What is a “layer mask”? And how do you make one?

Create own layer mask

NEW PROJECT → Create a layer mask for the “People” folio of People Magazine where you fill the background with text fill of your color. Create a Teen Digital Photography theme for this issue. Then, include at least three images you have taken as part of the cover display. Use the onion-skinning technique we’ve been using to make the background show thru the “People” lettering

Friday, March 2, 2018

Today’s Question(s): Insert two images of People Magazine covers that catch your eye and explain why they stand out to you

Create a layer mask of the folio for People that lets you place different images or colors underneath. Cut out the image you want to feature on your cover

PROJECT → Create your own cover for People Magazine. You select the feature photo. You select the three photo stories

Monday, March 5, 2018

Today’s Question(s) 20180305: What are Getty Images? Why does this Seattle-based company offer some images for free and others for pay? According to this leading Visual Trends Co report from last year, what is a “color surge?” Why is it important to add contrast to some of your photoshopped images? What will it do for your magazine cover?

Create a layer mask of the folio for People that lets you place different images or colors underneath.

  1. Cut out the image you want to feature on your cover. You can separate your subject from the background by flattening it and changing the color to contrast the background with the subject’s clothes using the Quick Selection tool (W) (to refine more carefully, you can invert the selection by pressing Cmd + Shift + I
  2. Options > Select and Mask. Properties > Choose your View Mode. From the View dropdown menu, choose On White. Set the Opacity to 100% so it’s easier to see what has been selected. If there are any areas of your image not selected that should be, use the Quick Selection Tool to paint them in
  3. Use the Quick Selection Tool to paint any sections that are still not selected that should be.
  4. Clean up the edges of your selection. Select the Refine Edge Brush and brush over the edges of the hair to include any stray strands of hair that were missing from the original selection.
  5. Turn on Smart Radius in Edge Detection to bring in some of the finer details, especially in the hair. The Radius you use will vary depending on your image – try using a 5px Radius.
  6. Use the Global Refinements sliders to fine-tune your selection. I’ve not needed any for this image, but you may find Shift Edge and Contrast help the make the hair look more defined and realistic.
  7. When you’re happy with your selection, click on the dropdown menu in Output settings and choose Selection. Then, press OK to confirm.
  8. Now Now that we have our background masked, let’s decide on a colour for it. For this, we will be using the Adobe Color Themes panel. You can find this by going to Window > Extensions > Adobe Color Themes. Here you can see a selection of colour schemes made by other users that you can use in your own work, but for now go ahead and click on the Create tab.
  9. Back in the main Photoshop window, click on the New Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel and choose Solid Colour. For now, set this to white – we will be changing the colour later once we’ve built a colour scheme.Pressing OK will confirm the new layer, which should now have the mask applied. Don’t forget to invert the mask again by pressing Cmd/Ctrl + I.
  10. Now that we have our background masked, let’s decide on a colour for it. For this, we will be using the Adobe Color Themes panel. You can find this by going to Window > Extensions > Adobe Color Themes. Here you can see a selection of colour schemes made by other users that you can use in your own work, but for now go ahead and click on the Create tab, at right.
  11. Select a base color for our color theory idea. With the Brush tool selected, hold down the Alt key and click on the hair to make it our active colour. Then, in the Color Themes Panel, click on the middle icon beneath the colour wheel to set the selected colour to be the active colour.
  12. click on the drop down menu at the top of the Color Themes panel and choose Triad. Rather than directly contrasting complementary colours, this should give us a selection of two evenly spaced colour suggestions from the colour wheel that will sit well with the color in your subjects clothing.
  13. Now that we’ve got our triad colours for this image, go ahead and click on your favourite swatch and click on the Set Active Color icon to bring the colour into our normal swatches panel ready to use.
  14. At the moment, this is a really intense, flat colour. Let’s bring it back a little by changing the layer Blending Mode to Color - which will also allow the original shadows from the white background to pop through.
  15. Going further, you could also repeat the above with accents in a third colour from your triad colour scheme. Here I’ve brought in the red as an accent, using Hue as the layer blending mode to turn it into a softer, peachy tone.
