Today was my last day in Digital Design! I graduate high school tomorrow! And all I did in class today was work on my yearbook assignments.
Today we had an awards assembly.
I was absent from class today.
Today I finished chapter 19 on the Photoshop CC One-on-One: Intermediate course on Lynda.com.
I double clicked on the background layer to rename it. I right clicked in the image window with the rectangular marquee tool and chose convert to smart object. I went up to the filter pull down menu and chose Liquefy. This brings up an independent window that runs inside of photoshop. I reset all the numerical values. I alternated between using a small brush and a large brush to make the face a little thinner and to tame the model’s stray hairs.
I used the push and warp tool to slim the arms and hips:
I used the pucker tool to tuck in the model’s tummy and thin her ankles and legs.
First I made another copy of the background layer. Then I pressed cmd+shift+X to bring up the liquefy window. I selected the twirl tool, increased the size of my cursor to 600px. I clicked in the center of the model’s face to twirl her head. I increased the density of the brush to 100, then I moved the models head to the right. All of these actions kind of warped her face so I used the warped tool to patiently fix it.
Today I continued working on the Photoshop CC for Photographers: Fundamentals course on Lynda.com. I finished chapters 16-17 before leaving class to go to a career fair with my school.
First I went to the filter pull down menu, clicked on blur gallery, then iris blur. I then moved the blur slider to 8 px and applied the new settings.
First I duplicated the background by dragging it to the new layers. Then renamed the layer CR. Then I went to the filter pull down menu and went to Camera raw filter. After that I just moved the sliders to create a bit more of an edge to the photo. When I finished the sliders read: Temperature: 8, Tint: 0, Exposure: 0.25, Contrast: 21, Highlights: -10, Shadows: 31, Whites: 0, Blacks: -7, Clarity: 39, Vibrance: 0, and Saturation: -10. Then I simply clicked OK and applied the changes.
I did not attend digital design yesterday because of an assembly at Cherokee Highschool.
Today I mostly watched videos on Lynda.com. I took a safety test and we had a fire drill. I learned a lot about using the computer. I know more about using safari and faster ways to organize files on the desktop. I also learned more about using the mouse and the trackpad.
