at Krause Center for Innovation. The instructor is William Cavada. Went to My Portal and logged in to
Canvas. Found Poster as the first assignment. Topics listed: • document set up; • Text box; • Frame Box;
• Wrapping Text; • Creating Text Outlines; • Paste Into; • Layers. Clicking poster.zip led to downloading
"poster 2" folder to the desktop. There were 7 files plus a folder.note that was empty. Since there were
no instructions, I tried to replicate the final.tif image in Adobe Photoshop. Below is the process used.
This Chavez Poster is the final product. Onto the background field will be pasted 5 items 1) Yellow rectangular box at top; 2) CHAVEZ name;
3) "A True Hero" in yellow, 4) Diagonal Array of Butterflies, and 5) the Chavez portrait in left corner.
and couldn't be selected, so layer was flattened to
make Butterflies(343x343).jpg file. The Diagonal
Array of Butterflies were pasted next, since the
top need to go under the "CHAVEZ" name.
Rectangular marquee used to cover Mountain Range at top. Edit Filled with Yellow.
