Today I finished my senior announcements.
Here are the original pictures:
They were very dark looking so I brightened them up using the brightness/contrast tool. I cropped the bottom photo and flipped it horizontally. I used the spot removal tool on the top photo to get rid of some stray hairs.I used some of the photoshop actions my teacher showed me today. To the top photo I added the action ‘lens flare only (right)’. For the bottom photo I opened it in camera raw and edited it there. Im not quite sure what I did but I made it look brighter and the colors look more vibrant. Then I added the action ‘lens flare only (right)’ to it.
I added the top photo to the 5×7 background that I colored a light purple.
Then I used the rectangular marquee tool to make a rectangle on top of the photo. I used the paint bucket tool to color the inside of the rectangle black. Then I drew another rectangle inside that one and pressed delete. This left a thin outline of the rectangle. I lowered the opacity:
I duplicated that a few times and resized it:
Then I added some purple rectangles:
After that I added my schools name and my name, then I got some flowers from google and lowered their opacity and thats all.
For the back I just used the exact same colors and basically just moved the rectangles and stuff from the front cover over to the back cover image.
