Today we looked at Photoshop and how to create a page in our portfolio depending on progression route. I began by opening Photoshop and creating a canvas to work on. I created two canvas One in Landscape and one in portrait both A3 in size. One I created with a white background and one in pink. I did this by clicking on new file and then in dialog box 'Print'. I chose A3 and then the orientation and then background colour and clicked on create.
My next job was to pick an image and then add it to my canvas I did this by choosing a digital asset from Unsplash and Pixabay I added Interior design image by clicking on open and then choosing the file from my computer I then clicked select and select all and then copy and then going to back to my canvas I pasted this in. I then clicked on show transform controls in the top menu and then adjusted the image to the size I wanted on canvas
I then added the title of my projects, using the Text tool in the left hand menu. I just clicked on the tool and then clicked into my canvas and then changed the font and the size of the font. In the Interior Design Canvas I used centaur at 60pts and added a subtitle at 36pts. On the fashion I used Copperplate Gothic Gold 72pts.
Then went to freelogodesign.com and created two logos with my brand name De Velde Design. I customised each logo and then downloaded and uploaded to my canvas and used the move tool and the transform controls to put this in place.
I then added another text box and wrote the introduction to my projects, this is not complete and I will return to these when I have completed my work and adjust according.
