Assignment 16: layer masks due 12/1

Post  Admin on Tue Nov 17, 2015 10:23 am

I'm using this tree photo from a layer mask tutorial here: http://www.phong.com/tutorials/mask.tree/. I suggest using this tree once to run through the tutorial so you can match your screens against these ones - but for the final work you submit, use your own photos. Two thirds of your grade is coming from "vision in using it to create a unique effect on an image" - and you won't get those points if you aren't coming up with your own concept and using your own work to apply this technique in a CREATIVE and UNIQUE way.

1. Open your picture in photoshop, go to channels, and duplicate the channel with the best contrast.



2. Still in the channels palette, adjust the levels of your new channel to increase contrast. (Go to image > adjustments > levels. On the top half of the pop up screen, there is a graph with a black, grey, and white triangle below it. Slide the black and white triangles to the middle to increase contrast).



3. Click the load selection icon at the bottom of the channels palette.


4. In the channels palette, click back on RGB to get all your color channels back. (The bottom one that you duplicated will no longer be set to visible.)


5. Return to your layer palette. Add a layer mask, using your current selection. (You can chose to show or hide the current selection - it's similar to inverting a selection.)


6. You should see a mask appear in your layer palette, and part of your image will be blocked out:


7. Apply your mask over all or part of another layer to see the effects. It should work like a window, letting you see parts of the layer below.


Objectives: Learning to work with color channels and masks

Grading: 3 points possible

1 point: demonstrating the use of a layer mask
2 points: vision in using it to create a unique effect on an image
