Open an internet browser like Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox to search for the image you want to use as a guide or base for your landscape painting.
Choose an image from google images by clicking on the thumbnail, or preview you first see, and drag to your desktop.
Immediately afterward create a new layer by clicking the icon that looks like a piece of paper with the bottom left corner folded, found to the left of the trash can icon.
For this project we were asked to create a composite image, or in other words to combine (two or more images) to make a single picture, especially electronically, using Photoshop.
The first step is to open an internet browser like Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox to search for two images you want to combine
Once you have found them, drag them to your desktop, be sure to drag the actual image and not just the thumbnail. If the image is too small or too large, click on the image and at the top, underneath the title of the image, should be the dimensions. Click on these and this will take you to a page that has different sizes for that same image.

The purpose of this assignment was to learn how to use Photoshop, which includes using the different brushes, colors, and tools to change the image. The other, and equally important, reason this assignment was given was to learn about the layers and how to use them properly.
Open Photoshop and create a new project by clicking on File, New...
When setting the canvas make sure it is sized for
The first thing you should do is to unlock the background layer by double clicking on it and pressing OK
You do this because the background layer is not clear, but white, and if you were to make a mistake on the background and try to erase it then you will also erase the white of the background. When you create a new layer, that layer is clear and not white as the background is.
The properties bar on the top changes depending on what tool you have selected, when you select the brush tool then the properties bar enables you to change the brush type and brush size
The color picker is located 3 icons up from the bottom of the tool bar, this allows you to be able to choose the color of the brush
When you make a mistake you can erase it, make sure it is on a separate layer and the correct layer is selected, or you could erase parts you do not want to.
You should not try to press undo, instead you should go to Edit, Step Backwards and this means you can “undo” a mistake more than just once, as pressing Undo will only work once.
The point of the assignment is to learn to use Photoshop to combine two separate images into a single one so as they look like they were originally only one image.
You can also search by image by clicking the camera icon in the search and dragging the image there, then click more sizes, this will bring up the different sizes of that image as well.
Once the correct size images are on your desktop, highlight the images with your cursor and Control + Click to open a menu. Click Open With…. and select Photoshop.
This will open up the images in Photoshop and they will appear as tabs, which are located right underneath the properties bar. So to switch to a different image, click the tabs.
The first thing you should do once you have opened up your images in Photoshop is to unlock the background layer. Then you can start to erase around the image, be sure to know which is the base image, the other image is the one you should be erasing because this is the one being Photoshopped into the other.
To erase, you can use several tools found in the tool bar. You can obviously use the eraser tool and use the properties bar to change its opacity and size. You can also use the Rectangular Marquee Tool, which allows you to select a rectangular area, and then click delete, which then deletes that selection. There is also the Lasso Tool that allows you to draw the marquee and your selection to delete. And lastly there is the Magic Wand Tool that allows you to select parts of the image that are the same color and then you can delete them.
After using one of these selection tools, before you can do anything else you need to deselect the selection, do so with Command + D.
If you make a mistake with the eraser, like erasing too much of the image, then to bring back the image hold down the Option key on the keyboard and use the eraser over the area you want to bring back. This will only work when the image is in its original position.
After you have erased around the image, use the Move Tool to move the image from that tab to the tab your base image is in, make sure to hover there and only release the image when it switches tabs.
Once your image is in the base image, to blend it into the base image use the eraser. Go to the Properties Bar to change to a sharp eraser or a soft eraser. You can also change the opacity to blend in the image better, to make it lower is to make the eraser more transparent, and vise versa.
Use a sharp eraser when the object is not suppose to touch the background and use the soft eraser when the object should be touching the background.
You can move the image to the desired location by using the Move Tool and to change the size and position use Command + T, which stands for transform. Be sure to keep the dimensions of the image proportional to the original when resizing by holding shift and resizing from the corners.
The assignment was to take an image, desaturate it, and then use a mask to resaturate the aspect(s) to emphasize them.
The purpose of this project was to learn how to desaturate an image and then learn the importance of using masks instead of the eraser.
Open a web browser like Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox and use a search engine like Google to search for an image. Typically for this project you should choose an image that has bright colors as focus points, these will probably be the still saturated object or focus of the desaturated image.
Click on the thumbnail, be sure not to drag the thumbnail to your desktop, and click on the image, preferably a large one, and drag to your desktop. To find different sizes click on the dimensions of the image and choose a larger one. Then Control + Click on the image and Open With… choose Photoshop.
Once in Photoshop, first unlock the background layer. Then copy the image by dragging the background layer to the New Layer icon next to the trash can icon.
Be sure to select the copy of the image and not the original, Go to the top menu bar on the screen and click Image and go down to Adjustments and then click Desaturate. This will desaturate, or drain the color out of the image so it is only black and white.
Be sure to select the copy, now desaturated, and click on the Mask icon, located three from the left on the bottom of the layers bar. This will add a mask to the desaturated copy.
To resaturate your chosen aspect or focus, use a black brush. This works because the color of the mask is white, and to hide accidentally resaturated parts use a white brush to hide it, or desaturate it again.
To resize the brush, be sure to have the brush tool selected, and go to the Properties Bar.
To Zoom In or Zoom Out change the percentage found in the bottom left corner of Photoshop. To zoom in make the percentage higher, and vise versa to zoom out,, Another way is to hold down Option on your keyboard and then scroll with your mouse.
Image size should only be 2.00M

Color Change Project
The assignment was to take an image, choose a focus to change the color of, typically a vividly colored object, and then use a mask to clean up the area around the now color changed object of focus.
The purpose of this project was to learn how to take an image and change the color of only one part of the image by using blending modes, masks, and gradients.
Color Change and Masks
Open a web browser like Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox to search for an image, be sure to choose one with a focus in mind and this will be the object you change the color of, typically choose a focus with vivid colors.
Drag this image to your desktop, make sure it is the actual and not the thumbnail, and Control + Click and select Open With….. Photoshop
Once in Photoshop, first unlock the Background Layer and then create a new layer by clicking the New Layer icon.
Use the Blending Modes found at the top of the Layers window, it should be on Normal by default, click and set to Hue.
Then add a Mask to the layer with the added color, and use a black or white brush to hide or reveal the image. Use them to clean up the edges of the focus so that the background of the image is the original, but the object is the only thing that has had its color changed.
Go to the Properties Bar to change the brush size, be sure when clicking the Properties Bar the Brush tool is selected.
Zoom In or Zoom Out to clean up the edges around the image more precisely. Do this by changing the magnification of the image in the bottom left corner of the Photoshop window. Make the percentage higher to Zoom In and make it lower to Zoom Out.
Control + Click
Drag to Desktop
Click to Unlock
New Layer Icon
Use the Brush Tool to paint over the area of the focus with the color you want to change that object to. When using a gradient choose the Gradient Tool and you must set your foreground and background to desired colors and click and drag to apply gradient.
