Project - Learn about using layers


Open PhotoStudio,

Create a collage that shows how the country you have chosen is represented in the categories below.

CHOOSE from:

  • Ancient Egypt
  • Ancient Greece (Greek Democracy, Mythology, Philosophers and Alexander the Great)
  • Ancient Rome
  • Ancient China

- a minimum of twenty images per collage is required.

  • Each image will create it's own layer.
  • Erase the parts of each image that you don't want to show.
  • Use the move tool to move images into the area you choose.
  • Use the eye icon to turn images on and off

Categories you need to include if applicable, and more of your choosing:
  Art (required for everyone)
  Traditions and customs
  Holidays and celebrations
  The unique look of the country, [mountains, dessert, rivers... what does it look like when you live in this country? (You may want to go back and use Google Earth to find these images.)]


Once you are done, save your image as a .jpg and insert it onto your Jeffco Google Docs portfolio web site.
