Dear Students:
I'm out sick this morning. Thanks ahead of time for your well-wishes. I hope to be back to work tomorrow, depending on how I feel.

Please remember the simple rules that when I am gone, all you need to do is
  1. Respect: Your peers, The Sub, and Our Classroom
  2. Complete the work quietly and with quality
  3. Turn in your work (via email)
  4. Surf the internet (QUIETLY) when you are done.
I really want to hear from the sub that period 5 was obviously my advanced, and best class!. Please make me proud to be your teacher! :)

Below is your assignment! READ IT CAREFULLY SO THAT YOU GET FULL CREDIT (notice that you will be sending it to a different EMAIL address!). GET TO IT!

Objective(s):1. Students will explore the world of TRANSFER BLENDING by creating a picture of each transfer mode by blending a gradient with a picture.

1. WARM UP (Digital Zen)
2. Transfer Blending Activity

Warm up (Digital Zen)
1. Write your feelings about our nation's first African American President.  What does this mean to you and to people of color? What do you hope he will accomplish in the next 4 years?  

Transfer blending is a simple way to blend layers together and how they react with one another.

READ THIS before starting

(By the way, I have shown this activity to Ammy and to Jennifer and perhaps to one other person.  Please ask them how to create these comps if you get stuck!)

1. Create a 10 inch x 5 inch (72 dpi) composition
2. Drag this picture onto photoshop

3. Copy the picture 2x so that you have one on the left and one on the right in your composition 
4. Create a new layer
5. Draw a marquee around the right photograph
6. Apply a Spectrum Linear Gradient (The rainbow one!) to your selection.
7. Apply transfer mode to blend
8. Choose an opacity you like.
9. Save as the name of the transfer. (For example: normal.jpg as your first picture, then dissolve.jpg as your second picture, then darken.jpg as your third picture.  You may Create a folder to save it to)
10. Upload all the flattened jpg images for your blog.
