Method (by:)

This lesson uses a variety of Photoshop tools to merge pieces of two (or more) different animals to create an entirely new creature. Students begin with an animal image and make a selection of a part of another animal using the Magnetic Lasso and Lasso tools, then move the selection into the first image. Students then transform, clone, erase, blur, adjust opacity, and perform other operations on the selection to make it appear as though it belongs on the animal. Students get valuable practice making and editing selections as well as blending two images together to make them appear seamless. Students end the unit by creating an impossible hybrid creature of their own.
