Project 4: Montage

Description: This is a montage project I made with Photoshop in celebration of the upcoming Christmas season with one of my favorite Dr Seuss quotes.

Process:

  1. I googled images of Christmas trees and DIY wrapped Christmas presents and selected the pictures that I liked.
  2. Then I cropped the background image to 8.5×11.
  3. Then I placed the second image of the presents in Photoshop and created a mask.
  4. Then using the brush tool I blended the image into the background image by decreasing the opacity.
  5. I choose a decorative font for my title which I typed in and enlarged on the background.
  6. Then I choose a contrasting San Serif font to use for my quote.
  7. I aligned the title, quote, and authors name to the right hand side of the image.

Top 3 things learned:

  1. How to use different layers in a project.
  2. How to blend multiple images into one.
  3. How to use Photoshop to make a montage about various topics.
