Assignment 14: Blog Banner
Come up with an idea/theme for the banner. Remember, it doesn’t necessarily need to include random school pictures. You could create a customized banner based on a schoold theme. Ex. WaterCan, Social Justice, Kip Keino, etc. Or maybe on the months major event, Ex. June represents Track&Field, Summer, etc. However, pictures are usually a great idea. If you need school photos come see me and I can give you a folder filled with various photos. And who knows, if you do a great job, maybe your work will be chosen to represent our school!
Open Photoshop. Click on File -> New and create a new document with the following dimensions: 896 pixels (width) by 320 pixels (height). It is very important that your final project be in these dimensions.
