In this exercise you will utilize any of the selection techniques discussed thus far to extract a person from one photograph, and then seamlessly integrate it into another photo using layer masking. You are trying to suspend disbelief as much as possible such that the viewer believes it is plausible that the photo is authentic (though realism isn't necessary). You MUST utilize layer masking in this exercise, therefore you will have to composite a photo int the intermediate zone of the image.
VC130_Week4_Exercise2 - This exercise is identical to Lab 1 except this time you will be following a different theme. In this exercise, you will be taking a small animal and intergrating it into another photo such that the animal now looks like a Godzilla-sized monster!

In this exercise you will create a 300 x 300 (pixels) image of a single color. The color you select should be based on a color that can be associated with an everyday or commonplace object that evokes a common color in everyone's mind.
In this exercise you will create a 300x300 (pixels) image of a 2-color complementary pair. Each color will fill 1/2 of the square divided vertically. Do not tint, shade or tone the hues. To establish an accurate subdivision of space use the "Fixed Size" style option in the Marque Select Tool, or drag a guide to the middle of the composition while holding shift to constrain it. Use ColorImpact to create this harmony.
In this exercise you will create a 300x300 (pixels) image of a 3-color triadic harmony. Instead of dividing the space equally (like Exercise 2) you will fill three circular selections with each color. The circles should be overlapped in such a manner that none of the background color can be seen in the final image. Apply an equal amount of tinting (white) to each color. Use ColorImpact to create this harmony.


Find a five color palette from the Top Palette section of COLOURlovers.com that you find appealing. Recreate this palette as a 750x300 (pixels) image with the colors spaced equally.

Fill in the remaining half of the canvas with a linear gradient that includes all three colors. Adjust the gradient stops in such a manner that the spacing is equivalent to the proportions of each color in the photo.
In this exercise you will create a 300 x 300 (pixels) image comprised of a 3-color split-compliment harmony. The composition will be comprised of three concentric (all share the same center) circles. The circles should all be centered at the middle of the composition.
In this exercise you will create a 300 x 300 (pixels) image comprised of a 4-color tetradic (rectangular) harmony. The composition will be comprised of four of the same custom shape created with the Shapes Tool (U). NOTE: You are not limited to the default shapes. Different shape libraries can be loaded from the flyout menu. Each of the four identical shapes should vary in size. Apply an equal amount of shading (black) to each color. Use ColorImpact to create this harmony.
In this exercise you will create a 300 x 300 (pixels) image comprised of a 4-color monochromatic harmony (harmony comprised of a single hue). The composition will be comprised of a random repetition of the word "harmony." Each copy of the word will be the same size, with the same font, with the only variation being to color. Your harmony should be comprised of equal amounts of tinting, shading, or toning (but don't mix tints with tones or shades). harmony.
In this exercise you will create a tileable pattern in both illustrator and then cutting it out for use in Photoshop.
