Reflection
The best part of the Photoshop unit has got to be the montage because of the huge amount of things that we learned. The hardest part is a toss up between the montage and the storybook. The montage took a long time, but we were given step by step instructions along the way. The storybook took up lots of time too, but for me it took a long time to plan out what I wanted the pages to look like. I've learned to use masks, the clone tool, the history brush, and especially the pen tool. The pen tool and masking are the most useful things that I've learned because of their versatility and broad range of applications. This Photoshop unit has been a lot of fun, and the projects were challenging, but very rewarding in the end. The work in this Photoshop unit will be used whenever I use Photoshop again. If I want to make a neat website I can use the tools that I've learned here to enhance the look.
