2. Create TWO magazine ad for two DIFFERENT products that you wish - use the same format... whereby the majority of the ad will be in black and white, but the main product or person in the ad will be in colour, hence allowing it to stand out.

Wednesday September 10, 2014 - If you aren't finished your collage, we will do that first. Today, I would like you to work with the Clone Stamp tool. You will completely remove an object from a photo using the clone stamp tool. This tool allows you to copy parts of a picture over to other areas. Try to select a picture that will end up looking interesting or funny with something missing (sports pics work well for this). If you are not sure how to use the clone stamp tool then ask for assistance!!! Give this an appropriate file name. I would like you to complete 2-3 pics. Maybe one will be removing an object and one can be bringing one in. Remember that once you have used the clone stamp tool, you may find it helpful to use tools such as blur and smudge to make your image seem a little more natural.

You will be using layer tools, the magic wand, text tool and possibly some paintbrush tools for this assignment. Be creative, and don’t be afraid to mess around with the program – see if you can discover new features and try to understand what they do. When you have completed this assignment (take your time, try to come up with something unique and interesting) post the image on your blog. Here are some examples of past projects:
