Teaching Photo Manipulation: Simple Photoshop Project Puts Students in Your Living Room
Lazaros, Edward J.
Tech Directions, v72 n5 p13-17 Dec 2012
Photographs used to be, for the most part, very trustworthy evidence of the visual truth. With the current ready availability of affordable digital photography and image-altering software, that is no longer the case. To be fully technologically literate, today's students should know something about the history of photo manipulation and the current process for doing it. In this activity, students will learn about how to use Adobe Photoshop, along with some attributes of design. Specifically, given an instructor-provided image of a living room scene, they will learn to use Photoshop to alter the image in a realistic way. (Contains 11 photos.)
