  2. PROCESS As I began to create a draft poster to practise using Photoshop and all the different tools available, I decided that I needed to cut out the banner that I had taken from google. At first I began colouring round it to make it just the sign, however I then cut out the shape of it instead and in order to remove the entire background image with no faults, I had to ‘Inverse’ the image which selected all the different areas of the picture that weren't highlighted to be deleted. Thus how I ended up with only the banner on the screen.
  3. PROCESS When I made the stables banner larger, I noticed it was pixelated, therefore I recreated the image myself using the shapes tool and colours that matched the original banner perfectly by getting a colour sample from it that I was able to transfer onto the shape itself. In order to create the writing, I just used the text tool and because I couldn't get the exact font used on the original image, so I had to choose a font close enough to it using the fonts from Photoshop. To get the star shape almost exact, I had to draw a star shape using the Photoshop shapes and then a smaller circle to create
  4. PROCESS With these images, I'm showing the difference when you use the feather within the lasso tool and without. The top image is used without; this image is seen to have kept all of its block colouring and seems to have more pointed edges. Although looking at the bottom image, it is noted that the colour is seemingly more faded and the outline of the image isn't as pointed, instead rounded. Both images are good in their own right, I like the look of the feathered image as I feel it would soften the entire look of the poster, where as the top image is more prominent and would also look good on a poster in its own right.
  5. PROCESS As you can see in the top left image, there is a green and yellow pole blocking the stomach of the horse and saddle, this meant I had to draw/colour over it. In order to do this, I took colour samples from the side of the horse that would be of similar colour that was covered up and coloured it; I did this 5 times on the horse and once of the saddle. When looking at the image when it is fully coloured it looks obvious that the colouring is there, however when zoomed out it isn't as apparent unless you fully focus on it.
  6. PROCESS As I wanted to have two different images of this horse, one facing the right the other facing the left, I had to flip the image so it could be how I imagined. The process I went through to do this was, originally I duplicated the image and flipped it over myself using the sizing box. However, I experimented further and copied it for a second time and right clicked on the image, seeing a ‘flip horizontal’ option, I clicked it and it was an exact match the the top image, just flipped the other way. Thus meaning I could continue creating my poster the way I had planned it to look.
  7. PROCESS This is my final draft of a poster I created using Photoshop. I combined all the skills I learnt individually to create this poster. As it is only a draft, I will attempt to create a better, more realistic version so if it were to be used in a general way, it will look professional when someone reads it and will consider attending said riding stables. I feel the white background overshadows the text and imagery on the poster, thus meaning when I create it again I will either add a background colour or have the shapes/text/images stand out more by giving them a shadow or use a bold colour
  8. PROCESS This is a comparison of the poster I created and one that is of professional editing. As you can see, the bottom poster has imagery that is more bright and bold as there are a series of colours used within each picture, thus making the white backdrop less prominent. The second poster also has contact information and the business logo, thus meaning that if someone were to search for the website, the logo would come up on the first page and it would be familiar to that person as the correct web page they’re on. They also show part of the stables in the second image, e.g. a picture of the arenas (explaining they have an indoor and outdoor ring) plus the inside of the barn where the stables are. They're even showing a picture of who could be the
  9. REFLECTION - POSTER For my final product I will use all the skills I learnt when making these posters, such as the feather technique as I feel it gives the image used more of a dreamlike look when printed. The image used with the feather feature, as seen above, is of a lighter shading, making the image almost transparent. I like how the feather feature looks if there were to be several images on the page, that being used overtop another. Another feature I’ll use is the ‘Inverse’ button when wanting to cut out a selected area of an image. This feature proves to be of a great help when wanting to have only a small section of a large image, as it saves time on having to paint over it or erasing it yourself, risking erasing part of the selected image yourself. I will definitely compare my completed work with professional work in order to see similarities and differences between the two, and hopefully be able to make my product look more professional and real, with colours and original pictures being used to brighten the poster; as opposed to having a simple looking and plain poster that has photos taken from google.
  10. PROCESS This t-shirt was designed using a free site - The page allows you to choose a certain design of a shirt and add your own text, images, shapes, etc. onto it. All applications in order to insert these things onto the t-shirt can be found on the left side of the screen where the shirt can be edited; the different designs are to the right of the screen. With this shirt, as it is a polo design, I decided to create a shirt that could be worn when competing at a horse event. On the chest of the right hand side, I chose to have the persons name printed on the front, instead of leaving it plain. Printed on the back is the word showjumper, however if you were of a different style of riding, such as dressage or point to point, that
  11. PROCESS I used another online application,, to create this design. In order to get tis design, I had to open a Photoshop document and design the text myself. They give you a boarder of the area in which you need to keep within when inserting your design onto the t-shirt. There is an option at the top of the screen where you can select which of your Photoshop designs you want to use (these have to be exported as PNGs or else they wont work). After selecting which ever image or text you would like, they will insert it onto the shirt for you as the full size, thus meaning you have to make the original design as big as possible in Photoshop in order for it to be of a good size when inserted onto the shirt.
  12. PROCESS For this design, I decided that instead of printing it on a t-shirt, I would see how it looks on a cushion. As seen in the top image, the silhouette of the horse is as large as it can be, however sill extremely small. The image I used was put through Photoshop and enlarged, however it still appeared too small, thus meaning I attempted a different approach to the design and selected to inset several of the images, creating the cushion below. I feel that design looks less plain, even if the top image were larger, I feel it wouldn’t do the whole cushion justice as the design with several horses looks more artistic and doesn’t make the remainder of the white cushion overshadow the silhouette.
