The projects I chose were The Forrest Gump Project and the create photos with words project. The create photos with words project is where you describe a photo in place of the photo itself.
I think this is important because I have always had trouble communicating so writing out what I see would be a much-needed challenge.
Obviously, I need to expand my vocabulary and be more specific when I work so it’s something that can be very useful to me as a communicator and as a storyteller.
Another project I’m working on is the Forrest Gump Project which is a project where the creator has to put themselves into a historical image.
Obviously, this will be a great test of my photoshop abilities. I would have to color correct, position, and mask myself into a historical image correctly.
As a person who wants to use photoshop frequently in their career, I think this would be very important for me to learn.
Here’s how I did this project;
Step 1: I downloaded one image and took the other from my gallery.
This is one I downloaded
and this flattering image of myself I got from my gallery, I don’t know why I took this but this is a perfect image for this project.
I cropped myself in the image, cut myself out of the photo, and pasted it in front of the image for the project.
I used the Pen tool in order to trace myself, probably not the best option because I converted the path into a selection. I should have used the lasso tool but I’d spent a lot of time sculpting out the selection
Next, I created a layer mask that immediately crops the selection. Now my background is gone.
I converted the image of myself into a smart object and converted the image of myself to grayscale.
I positioned myself in the location where I wanted to be.
I put another mask on my image and NOW was when I decided to use the lasso tool to crop most of my body out and used the eraser tool to make myself look like I’m behind those two gentlemen.
And now I’m done, right? No, because I need to make myself more immersive. I decided to add an adjustment layer and use it as a clipping mask on the image of myself. This adjustment layer was for adjusting curves which changed the tones of the image of myself, making me look like I was actually in the image.
And that’s how I helped the Allies win World War 2

Thank you for your service much appreciated
Good work! I love the tutorial and step by step narrative – do you find it helpful to retain the skills after you write them out? I always do!
A great challenge to take on! Im glad that you did!
I can show you a few photoshop tricks that will help with the blending of the asset that you made into the existing image – the photoshop ai is getting really good at this these days – more soon!
(Ill show you in class)
