Complete the biking Photoshop project from previous class.If you were gone last class download Bike2008.psd at the bottom of the page.

Today we will:
Change the color of the logo and add a shadow.
Add a text layer.
Change text color, increase font size, and add tracking to a word.
Save file as an image(JPEG).

Save as Per2_Your Name_Landscape

Find a photo of a landscape and put it into Photoshop. 
Next put in 2-4 images using File > Browse, into the landscape using the Quick Selection Tool.   and the Move Tool
Add a colored rectangle at the bottom of the document.

Put a title in the rectangle, give it color, and add tracking to the word to widen it out (Alt + Right Arrow Key).

Note:  If you need to resize an image, select the layer, then Edit > Free Transform (or hold down the CTRL key and "T" at the same time).  Now you can resize the image.

Here is an example of my daughter in Paris, France.
