Today's Assignment - Photoshop Discovery:
1. Some of you have used Photoshop a lot and some of you hardly at all. This assignment allows you to work at your own pace, but you need to MAKE SURE YOU PUSH YOURSELF TO DISCOVER/LEARN NEW THINGS! .
2. Open your favorite photographs (that you’ve taken) in Photoshop and work with them in order to see what you can make Photoshop do (be careful not to save over your originals, though—see step 3).
3. Save at least 3 of your files in a new folder in YOUR student home directory called “Photoshop Studio Assignments” (keep them ORGANIZED!). Save the Photoshop (PSD) files as “Discovery1”, “Discovery2”, and “Discovery3”
