This time we were presented the way to use a scanned image and chose a particular part of it by using a “Rectangular Marque Tool” and holding a “Shift” button. This part was used on my concept board to show some material that could be used for this project.
Then, I had to chose an image(which appeared to be a photograph made by me a year ago) and use a Polygonal Lasso Tool to crop it. This tool allows to crop an image in an accurate way.
After cropping it out from the background, I smoothed the edges. Also, I used the same image to Feather the edge and then edited the color(hue/saturation) to my selection. Here is the final version of the image in a “JPEG” format:
I think this lesson was very useful as this knowledge will help create a better versions of work later on. Also, this time there were much more details while creating the concept board which made it even more interesting.
