Upload or Submit File for the Assignment (like you did for Exercise 4)
Take a Screenshot of your Photoshop Layers
Because our PSD files are too large to upload to CANVAS, we will turn in a screenshot of our layers. Move your layers panel towards your canvas and drag it down so that as much as possible is visible. Then you will use one of the many screenshot options I list below that works on your computer (our class is now using both MAC and PC at home).
How to take a Screenshot
on a MAC:
- shift command 4 - allows you to click and drag across what you want to take a picture of
- shift command 3 - takes a picture of the entire desktop
On a PC:
- Print Screen(PrtScn) - it is now on your "clipboard" and is waiting for you to paste. In Photoshop, create New, allow for the default settings, and then Paste the image onto the canvas. Save as a .jpg
- Alt and Print Screen - will take a screenshot of an open window
- on Windows, holding the Windows button and Print Screen - places a screenshot of your entire screen in the screenshots folder
