Create a background with Photoshop CC

In this lesson your students will use the Marquee Tool and the Warp Tool in Photoshop CC to create a background image . The jist of the lesson is that your students are using the Single Column and Single Row Marquee Tool to create a type of hash pattern that can then be used as a background. Once that is finished your students will bring the same picture back and warp it to give a stylized look to the image.

Your students will review the use of the Single Row Marquee Tool and the Single Column Marquee Tool, the transform command, blend modes, the warp tool and layers with this lesson. You are going to use an interesting picture to create a background. You get the universe image shown, a finished .PSD file and a PDF with 11 pages of instructions and a challenge activity so your students practice the skills individually.
