For this task we were asked to create a panorama image photoshop and then add a object into the image which wasn’t there in the original photograph.

To make a panorama image on photoshop is fairly simple and it doesn’t take much skill;

First you start by going to file,  automate then photomerge

You then select all the images you want to use for the panoramic photograph.

Once you have selected them after a few minutes photoshop will of created a panoramic image for you. Sometimes you will need to crop the image as sometimes the full photograph doesn’t fill up the image window.

After i had cropped the panormic image i then went on the internet and fond a picture of the car used in chitty chitty bang bang. After using the magnetic lasso tool in photoshop i then placed the car in the sky to make it look like it was flying over the James Graham Building.

This is the final image for the task set.


Spot Colour

Spot 1

This is the spot colour that i took on my camera and it hasn’t been edited in anyway

Fast 7

This is the image i have edited in photoshop showing spot colour. I did this by de saturating the whole image so it was almost black and white, then i used the history eraser tool to go over the orange and blue paintwork on the car. Overall i feel this has a very good effect and really makes the cars paintwork stand out.


This was the photograph before i edited it in photoshop.

Firstly i used the clone stamp tool to give the subject in the photo multiple arms and heads.

I then selected the rim of the tractor that was originally yellow and changed the hue to make the front rim pink and the rear one yellow

Selection Assignment

We were asked to take one of the portraits we used from our portrait task in photo story, then change the colour of the eyes, change the skin tone and then change the mood of the picture by changing the background.


This is the original portrait image i am going to be using.

Screen shot 2013-05-04 at 15.28.50

I used the magnetic lasso tool in photoshop to select the subjects eyes. I then changed the hue and brightness to give the subject blue eyes instead of his original green eyes.

Screen shot 2013-05-04 at 15.46.35

I then used the same magnetic lasso tool to select the subjects hands and his face which then enabled me to make his skin tone lighter making him look slightly ill.

Screen shot 2013-05-04 at 16.52.45

I finally decided to de saturate the whole image to change the mood of the photo from a nice warm healthy mood to a somewhat unhealthy looking cool cold mood. That is now my final image

How colours can change the mood of a photo

Screen shot 2013-05-04 at 14.47.46

This is the original photo i started with, i am going to change the mood of the photograph by adjusting the colour.

Screen shot 2013-05-04 at 14.59.42

I have processed this image in Adobe photoshop. I reduced the amount of saturation in the image resulting in less colour. This i feel has made the image feel colder and it looks like the puppy has been abandoned and is hiding under the bench to try and stay warm.

Screen shot 2013-05-04 at 15.13.36

In this image i have adjusted the brightness and contrast making the picture seem warmer due to the slight orange glow in the image. The puppy looks like she is trying to get out of the heat by laying under the cool shade of the bench

These two pictures really show how just the colour of the image can change the mood and the way the viewer sees the image quite considerably.
