Adobe Photoshop I, GRDSN 158

Project 2

In this project I will learn to:

  • Use a small, low-resolution image as a drawing template.
  • Create complex, scalable vector shape layers.
  • Composite images as Smart Objects.
  • Create and modify selections and lyre masks.
  • Applying filters and adjustments to create artistic effects.
  • Develop custom artistic backgrounds.
  • Present multiple layout variations using comps.


Read and work through the project in the Against the Clock book. You will use the sample files provided by Against the Clock.

The project files are stored on the server in the graphics labs, AVA-Disciplines/GRDSN/Against_the_Clock. Against the Clock provides the files on their website. If you work outside the lab, files can be downloaded by following the instructions on the inside back cover of the book. If you are checking out books from the Library the online code may not work, so be sure to save files from our lab server.

You may find it convenient to copy the files onto your personal storage area.
