Project Builder 1

Your cousin has recently purchased a beauty shop and wants to increase the number of manicure customers.  She’s hired you to create an eye-catching image that can be used in print ads.  You decided to take an ordinary image and use your knowledge of masks and adjustment layers to make the image look striking.

 

  1. Open PS 8-3.psd 9from the Digital Design folder on the server), then save it to your folder on the server as PS_C8_L1_Manicure_your username
  2. Duplicate the Polishes layer, then name the new layer 'Red Polish'
  3. On the Red Polish layer, select the red nail polish bottle and cap, then delete everything else in the layer
    [Hint:  You can do this by deleting a selection]
  4. Hide the Red Polish layer, then make the Polishes layer active
  5. Create a layer mask that hides the red polish, then reveal the remaining items on the Polishes layer
  6. Use any tools at your disposal to fix (display areas you want visible, hide areas you want hidden) the area where the red polish (on the Polishes layer) has been masked
  7. Display the Red Polish layer
  8. Move the Red Polish layer below the Polishes layer (on the Layers panel)
  9. Use the existing layer mask to hide the white polish (with the blue cap)
  10. Position the red polish bottle so it appears where the white polish bottle was visible
  11. Use any tools necessary to fix areas you want to improve, such as the Blur tool to soften the edges of polish bottles
  12. Add an adjustment layer to the Red Polish layer that makes the polish color a darker red
    [Hint:  Try a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer was used with the following settings:  Hue:  -16, Saturation:  +42, and Lightness:  -17]
  13. Add one or two brief type layers, and apply layer styles to at least one of them
    [Hint:  Trythe following type used:  "There's always time for a" in 36 pt. Brush Script Std and "Manicure . . . " in a 50 pt. Cambria Math font]
  14. Add your name, Photoshop – Ch. 8 Project Builder 1 and the filename to the bottom of the image
    Example:
    Your First and Last Name
    Photoshop – Ch. 8 Project Builder 1
    PS_C8_PB1_Manicure Copy
  15. Save your work to your folder on the server as PS_C8_PB1_Manicure Copy
  16. Flatten the original image
  17. Add your name, Photoshop – Ch. 8 Project Builder 1 and the filename to the bottom of the image
