Second-year student, Schuyler M., who enjoys working with computers and AdobePhotoshop, was recently commissioned to do a graphic design project. His project was to create a photo for a family friend.
Schuyler noticed that the methods used to insert a picture into the design were not the best for this purpose and did not look real, as the work was supposed to. Instead, he took the photo and made it look like a watercolor to hide the fact that it was added later. To do this, he used a visual filter over the original image in Photoshop.
The client for this project really appreciated the product Schuyler created and provided him great positive feedback. While Schuyler continues to enjoy this work on a freelance basis, through exploration with his Career Counselor, Deb Cuny, he has narrowed down his career focus to data entry positions. He continues to work hard to find an ideal position in the field.
