Setting up our projects

Today we will set up our project files and begin working on our actual portraits.

To set up your final project file:

  • Open Photoshop
  • File -> New
  • Set the proportions as follows (These are for a portrait orientation. If you would like a landscape orientation, set the width to 14 inches and the height to 11 inches.)
    new_file_11x14
  • Open any pictures you would like to work with in Photoshop and drag them into the file. If your images seem hidden, click the icon at the top of the screen that looks like two squares overlapping one another. This will separate the images you have opened:

At the end of today’s class, create a new blog post with the following:

  • a PNG or JPG of your project so far.
  • a paragraph detailing your plan for your project. Include anything you need help figuring out how to do.
