B&W With Color
You will choose at least 1 very colorful image from the internet to transform into mostly black and white, with one key element of the image remaining in color.
Be sure to go to the "Finding Images Online" page at the top of this screen under MORE for information on how to get a high quality image (minimum suggested 600 x 800 pixels, the larger the better).
-Your images must be REAL ITEMS/PEOPLE in a PHOTOGRAPH.
This means no cartoon/drawn images.
- Choose the element you isolate carefully using the QUICK SELECTION TOOL. Make sure it is interesting and easy for someone to spot the part you are leaving colorful. I recommend to find an image that initially has a lot of color, and people would know it use to have color after you edit it. I also recommend to avoid choosing an image which is zoomed in. The part which remains colorful should be a vibrant, noticable color. For example...if there is just one basketball in the photo, how would we notice the color distinction unless there were perhaps many basketballs and only one was colorful! If there are only 2 very soft colors, how will we notice the color remaining? Be sure that your edges are carefully selected and/or touched up.
- Choose the largest images you can so you can avoid pixelation and blurry print outs.When you are done, save your images and name them appropriately in your Documents folder (save as Photoshop file = .psd).
- Save your image in the dropbox under your class period and the B&W folder as a PSD (Photoshop File). Name it your first and bw. This should go in the Black and White folder. Example: John_bw.psd
