I used this with a year 10 class and they loved it. Students will learn how to: Duplicate layers Rotate layers Flip layers Merge layers Alter hue and saturation ... in order to produce stunning repeat patterns, later used for surface design project.

Basic Photoshop Layers - Mask Lesson

This lesson tied in with our GCSE cultural mask scheme of work. Students photographed a mask, then imposed it onto a person of their choice. Students learn about layers and various tools within photoshop. (Also great for teachers who need to improve their own understanding!)
