Challenge: Use Photoshop to make an abstract image that combines at least eight photographs. A viewer should not be able to tell what any of the pictures are of.
- You can only use photographs—no drawings.
- You must use each of the following Photoshop functionalities someplace in your piece:
- Layering and Opacity—Layer photographs on top of each other, and change the opacity so that you can see through the top layers.
- Making Selections and Cutting and Pasting—Select a portion of a photograph and paste it into your final piece.
- Color manipulation—Change the colors in the photograph
- You can use an entire photograph or just small pieces of it.
