Go to Google Images and get LARGE files to use for your background. Make sure they are not pixelated/ have a copyright symbol on them. The youtube video for getting a large file in Google is here
Save your image as a jpg file on your desktop.
Make sure the image you choose is of your dream profession (or dream place to live) in a setting such as in a doctor's office, i.e. not just a man with a white background wearing a tux.
You will be creating a new Padlet named "Layer Mask" and have your two images- one with yourself in the career you want along and one of yourself as a celebrity or with a celebrity, along with three paragraphs explaining:
1. What your career is and your ideal day (underneath your image)
2. A reflection on why you chose this celebrity- why do they inspire you? What is it about them that you respect? (underneath your image of you and a celebrity)
3. steps you did in photoshop to create it- as a separate post within your padlet.
The image exercise will be saved as lastname-firstname-layermask-exercise. Make sure there is a ©copyright symbol and your name on the bottom right in white text so no one else can claim it as their own (press "option" and "g" at the same time to make the © symbol). The other images are to be saved in the common drive as lastname-firstname-layermask1.jpg and lastname-firstname-layermask2.com.
