Photoshop Elements

Work with a partner and use a digital camera to take pictures of yourselves. Please ask for assistance so that you know how to take the pictures. You can use a tripod if you wish.

Launch iPhoto and connect the camera to your computer via USB; View iPhoto's Photo Library in Organize mode (Organize button). iPhoto should detect the camera automatically when you turn on the camera. Click the Import button to upload the images into the Photo Library. Please ask for assistance if the camera does not connect. Save your images (drag icons from the Photo Library to your disk) in a folder called digital_camera on your disk. Name the files with no caps or spaces ("yourname_photo.jpeg").

Touch up using clone, dodge, burn, smudge, blur, and airbrush. Adjust levels and crop your photographs. Save the files in jpg format in a folder called digital_camera on your disk. Name the files with no caps or spaces ("yourname_touchup.jpeg"). DO NOT COMPRESS THE PHOTOS!!!

Resample the image as approximately 4x5 inches, 600 dpi resolution and save it on your disk in a folder called digital_camera on your disk. Name the files with no caps or spaces ("yourname_print.jpeg").

Try printing your print with glossy paper on an inkjet printer!

All 3 of your photograph files should be in the same folder (digital_camera) on your disk when you are finished.

Submit the folder on data CD
