Learning Goal: I’m working on a photoshop question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Design Instagram posts/ads and stories for the company you previously use to redesign a logo.
Use Adobe Photoshop to create 5 IG posts/ads and 5 IG stories.
Work using layers and groups (The PSD file should have 5 groups, 1 for each post/ad or story)
Name each layer descriptively (title, subtitle, image… do not leave it as layer 1 or untitled)
Keep elements in the same position (trick–> once you design the first one, duplicate the group and work on this new set; it will keep your elements in the same position). Keep the designs consistent, they are a series.
Use text (a few words) in either of your designs. That means use the Photoshop Type Tool
Apply some effects to either stories or posts/ads:
Apply some effect on the Layers panel (Opacity, multiply, saturation,…)
Apply an Adjustment Layer (brightness, contrast, curves…)
Layer>New Adjustment Layer
Apply some blending option
Layer Window (bottom)>Blending Options
The way to save the assignments:
Create 1 PSD file for each set and work inside using groups and layers.
Naming your files the proper way:
so you have to save 2 of the documents PSD and the other two JPG/PNG
Posts/Ads–> (I WILL PROVIDE EXAMPLE)
Stories——>1 PSD file with 5 stories inside2 JPG/PNG
Pick your favorite story and post/ad and mock each (download the files below). Mocks are a way to visualize it in the way the final user will see it. ( I WILL PROVIDE EXAMPLE)
