Blow by Kesha
For this image, I used three images from MorgueFile. The background image is of a DJ in front of a laser light. I then took my second image of the girl in the Mardi Gras mask and used the curves tool to change the colors how I wanted them then I over layed it over the background image. I then used a mask to take out the background behind the girl to show the laser lights and I also lightened her up a bit and made her slightly transparent. The last thing I did was took a picture of a disco ball and used the Quick Selection Tool to select it. I brought it over into the image and used another mask to blend it in with the background. I then used the paintbrush tool on the disco ball to help it blend in with the background.

Someone Like You by Adele
For this image, I found two wedding pictures. The larger of the two, I set as the background and used the curves tool to edit it. I then edited the second image that I overlayed over the background. I used the curves tool on that one as well and darkened it so the two figures looked almost like silhouettes. After I put it on the background, I used a mask to make it transparent.
Image Inspired by Famous Artwork
Dancers in Pink by Edgar Degas
For this image, all I did was, I found an image on MorgueFile that was similar to the scene that is depicted in the painting. I used the Black & White adjustment then used the mask to pull back forward the pink color from the girls dance outfits.
Image Based on A Movie
This image actually took alot of time to finish. I went away from using a photograph of a human ballerina and decided to use the doll instead. The image didn’t have the same creepy effect with the human. I used the Curve tool to edit the main image. I then found a picture of a hawk and used the quick selection tool to take the wings. I then used the quick selection tool again to select the ballerina so I could put the wings behind the figure. After I put the wings on the figure, I used the paintbrush tool to darken the wings up to make it look more like the “black swan.” I then used a mask on the top layer of the ballerina to make it somewhat transparent to give it the creepy effect. Also for a little added effect, I darkened the background of the image.
Image Aimed Toward Children
For this image, I found the picture of the little girl on MorgueFile. I then put a Black and White adjustment on the photo and used the mask to pull back some of the color on the little girl. I then found the picture of the butterfly and used the quick selection tool to select it and I then refined the edge of my selection. After I resized the image of the butterfly, I brought it into the background image and added a Plastic Wrap filter to it. I added a mask to that and brought back forth some of the reflection from the bubble that was covered by the selection of the butterfly.
I found this image on MourgeFile and added a Gaussian Blur to it. I added a mask to bring back forth the bottom of the mans boot and part of the glove. I then added a soft pin light effect to the image and used another mask to darken the background back up.
For this image, I found another wedding picture on MorgueFile. I added a Pin Light effect. Then I added a sepia filter and used a mask to bring back forth the two figures. I then added a Screen effect and used a mask to lighten the people back up and the right side of the image.
Image Based on One Color of Choice
For this image, I found the background image of the red “person” on MorgueFile. I copied the image and overlayed itself to show two seperate figures. I used a mask to make the second image look more transparent than the first. I then took an image of the back of a CD and used the quick selection tool to select it. After I refined the edges of my selection, I brought it into the background image and I toned the image red.
Image Based on a Color of Choice
For this image, I took the picture and added a black and white effect to it. I used a mask to pull the sky back forward then toned the color of the snow blue.
For this image I took a picture from an advertisement that I found on MorgueFile. I then toned it to bring out the blue in the face, and the green in the eyes of the creature. After I did that, I took a “Beware of Dog” sign and cropped it so it just read “Beware.” After that, I took the sign and put it over top of the background image. I used a mask to add transparency to the sign image to blend it in to the background image.
An Image to “Sell” Something/Typography/Masculine
For this image, I searched for Classic Cars on MorgueFile and I found both of these images. For the background, I used the curves tool to change the color settings. I then used the paintbrush tool to darken the sky and everything around the main focus, the beat up red truck. After that, I took the picture of the sign I found and cropped it so it was just the words. After that, I put it into the background image and used a mask and the transparency adjustment to blend it into the background.
Image Based on an Adjective
For this image, I used an image of a Fountain. I found a picture of the robed figures on MorgueFile. I also found the image of the dragon in the top corner on morguefile. I used the quick selection tool to select the picture of the dragon and put it into the background image. After that, I searched for different textures that I could overlay on top of the two images. I found the picture of the fountain and used the water as the overlay. I used the paintbrush tool and added some extra pieces to the overlay and made it transparent. After that, I used the paintbrush tool again and darkened the entire image with black.
Image Based on an Adjective
For this image, I used the curve adjustment tool to edit the photo. I then used a mask to bring back forth the reflections in the water and the trees in the background. After that, I added a warm photo filter on it and used another mask to darken the trees and the grass back up.
I chose to redo the image I had done in one of our first assignments in the course. In the original image, I had added extractions of snow balls and used the paintbrush to add extra snow. I also had added a Gaussian Blur to the image to show Depth of Field. When I redid the photo I added snow to the image in the front, which it didn’t have the first time. I then fixed the blur to correctly show how it should be blurred. I brought forth the girl in the tan jacket and also the woman standing behind her and the man in front of her. I used the paintbrush to darken up the part of the image in the right corner that was too saturated. After that, I added a black and white effect to darken the image up and I used a mask to bring back forth some of the color. I also added a blue tone to the photo.
Image Based on a Photograph
For this image, I used old fashioned pin up girls as my inspiration. I shrank down two posters that I like in particular and I put them up like they were posters on the wall of the pin up girl in the middle. I changed the picture to black & white and brought back the color in the main pin up. When I added the posters to the wall, I had to change the posters to black & white as well and I changed the opacity on the effect to bring back a little bit of color.

Cry Me a River by Justin Timberlake
For this image, I took the background image and I used the curves tool to edit the brightness of the picture. I further darkened the image by using the paintbrush tool. I then took the image of the rain on a window and did an overlay on the background image. I then changed the opacity on the overlay and used a mask to push some parts back and bring some forward.
Image Based on a Movie
For this image, I took three images, one of the bubbles, one of the orange fish, and the third of the blue fish. I used the quick selection tool to select both the blue and orange fish. After I selected both fish, I brought them into the background image and added a plastic wrap effect to the two fish. I then used masks to lessen the plastic wrap look and make it more like a reflection off of the bubble.
