Using Photoshop, students learnt how to use the mask and channel tools.
The mask tool allows students to add a mask to a layer, meaning portions of the layer can be selectively hidden or revealed. The benefits of masking allows multiple photos to be combined into a single image.
Channels are responsible for storing the color information for images, these include RBG – (red.blue,green) and CMYK (cyan,magenta,green,black) When selecting an area in the image, a new channel will open and this will b saved as Alpha.
This lesson was very useful. A good alternative to layering lots of images together, but also very creative when you want to do something specific like place and image within an outlined other image, like the feather I created (and didn’t save o.O)
