CONTENT• We’ve used this week to make the banner for our website. We’re using the Island School Logo, and two photos from the Island School Website. The photos that we have used are on the next slide, and we’ll write down step by step how we made our banner using this presentation.
STEP 1• First, we removed the background of the island school logo, so we could add a picture behind it. We rasterised the layer and used the quick selection tool to remove the background.
STEP 2• Since our website is about the sports achievements of Island School, we wanted to make it similar to the banners on the school website and the extracurricular website. Therefore we tried to find the closest font and colour and put the words “Sports Achievements” underneath
STEP 3• Next we put the two photos that we needed for our banner. We’ve changed the opacity to 80% on the left photo because we need to be able to see the words.
STEP 4• Following the tutorial on: http://www.photoshopess entials.com/photo- effects/photo- blend/page-3.php , we learnt how to blur/blend the two photos together. We have already done it on the previous photo, but we learnt that you add a layer mask on the right photo, which is the beach layer. Then you use the gradient tool and blend the photo
