Assignment



Choose 1 descriptive/action word about you. Start your project large: 3000 x 2400 (to be saved as .psd). Must be at least 5 layers; all layers must be labeled. Must have these layers:




  • Your descriptive word (can be big in background, can be all over, etc. - make it noticeable)


  • A photo of you (you can filter, etc.); a large face shot or an action shot make the most interesting collage


  • Your name signed like a signature in bottom right hand corner


  • The others are your choice - try to make it a collage about you. Think about it as a portfolio website and someone hits the "About Me" link. What collage photos would describe you?



You will save and turn in the file in 3 ways: (1) Save large file with layers as .psd; (2) save large file for .jpg print (Save As > .jpg); (3) Compress and Save for Web: Change the image size of file to 1000 wide and Save for Web (compressed saved as .jpg) under 300KB.



Here is a sample list of words: devoted, sweet, cool, lost, determined, puzzled, random, confused, peaceful, driven, amazing, fierce, unforeseen, and graceful
