To create a new document
11” high x 14” wide
Save as lastname-firstname-hockney.jpg
To create your artwork:
Open up your photos from iPhoto that you took
Drag a thumbnail over from the top left of the composition
Position it into place on the top left hand side of the blank canvas
Go to edit > transform > scale to get it to fit into place, dragging it from a corner diagonally towards the center so that you’re not changing the proportions of the individual photo.
Keep doing that with each different photo, overlapping some to create separate layers
Use the move tool on each appropriate layer to edit/transform and move them to make a complete composition
If you want to move a photograph to put it behind another one, make sure you are on that highlighted layer and go to layer > arrange > move to back
When you are done,
a. Save a version in Photoshop for yourself (in case there needs to be changes) then
b. Merge layers and save as lastname-firstname-hockney1, 2, 3.jpg
MAKE SURE there are no dust in the sky, use brightness/contrast etc as needed on the photos to make them as high a quality as possible!
