Photoshop: Colorize

Objective

The students will use layers, layer adjustments, magnetic lasso, lasso, magic wand, quick mask and quick  selection tools to edit an object in Photoshop.

Method

Students will take a simple black and white image and add some color to it to create a wonderful emphasis effect or to breathe new life into an old, worn out image. This will give us some great work with masks as well as modifying selections and working with Adjustments. Other tools used will be the magnetic lasso, quick selection tool, and magic wand tool.
