For this project, you will be using a minimum of two adjustment layers on the Ellen photo.
- Use the Ellen photo for this exercise (Click on the photo to allow it to open in a new window. Drag the larger photo to your desktop or straight into photoshop)
- Open the Ellen photo in Photoshop
- Go to Window and make sure the following items are checked off: Adjustments, History, and Layers
- The first adjustment layer that you can experiment with is Brightness/Contrast
- You should note that when an adjustment layer is added, it will look like a layer mask
- If there are portions that you do not want darker/lighter, just use the brush as you would in the previous lesson. In this example, I wanted Ellen to have creepy eyes and crazy white teeth.
- I also wanted to give her a bit of a tan so I adjusted the vibrance/saturation adjustment layer
- I didn’t want her hair to be super saturated so I used the mask to take away a lot of the yellow
- Save your image as a .psd (the .psd file is so you can have a version saved with all your layers)
- Go to Layer—>Flatten Image
- Go to File—>Save As—>Change the format to .JPEG or .JPG
- Attach the flattened file to the Adjustment Layer project on Google Classroom
