This essential skills set session was on Adobe Photoshop. In this session I learnt about the different tools and effects which can be used on images. I learnt tools like layering. I have listed some tools below and some of their functions:
Marquee Tool- Makes rectangular, elliptical, single row and single column selections.
Lasso Tool- Makes free-hand, polygonal (straight-edged), and magnetic (snap-to) selections.
Quick Selection Tool- gives access to select any option/tools
Magic Wand Tool
3D Material Eyedropper Tool
Using Photoshop was fun but difficult as it was my first attempt and took several attempts to get used to the difficult tools and achieve results. I have also applied the skills learned in this lesson into my Balenciaga work where I used Photoshop to visualise different garment designs from a design I developed from my research. Photoshop has been very useful and will continue to be useful fir my future projects.
