PowerPoint Presentation

After looking closely at all the photos I took I decided that these two were my favourite and would allow me to achieve the end result I wanted. The hard decision was choosing between these two images but after looking at what's effect and what's not about each image I decided to go for the one at the bottom. I picked this one mainly because the model is making direct eye-contact and I felt that this was needed for the type of poster I wanted to achieve.

I used Adobe Photoshop Element 12, Pixlr which is an online website and a bit of Microsoft PowerPoint to make my poster. I used all these three because they all helped me achieve different things.

I started off by downloading Photoshop and then I opened the program. To start editing the photo I wanted to use I needed to open it, I did this by going to File, open and then selecting my image.

Next I decided to crop my photo to achieve the size and shape I wanted. I did this by selecting the crop icon on the toolbar and selecting the area I wanted to get by highlighting it and then clicking on the green tick to crop.

Next I wanted to get remove the background to achieve a blank/white background, this will help me to get rid of the shadows and also the background colour. This will allow me to put a new background if I wanted to by then creating layers. I removed the background by selecting the wand icon on the toolbar. This tool will select all the areas which look alike in colour allowing me to then delete that selected area. I also selected the refine edges button which is under quick selection to ensure I got the edges of the deleted area as smooth as possible.

This is the finished effect I added up with after removing the background.

I went to the adjustment section on the right hand side and selected the colour tab. I went to the hue section and click on the first one which gives the image a green hue/tint which I wanted.

I then went to the vibrance Section and selected the first one again to tone down the brightness of the photo. I also went back and selected the wand tool to get rid of the models hair. After this I saved what I have edited so far onto my computer.

I went on the pixlr website by typing in pixlr.com. I then opened up the image I have edited on Photoshop previously by going to file and open image.

On Pixlr I edited the brightness of the photo to -9 to make the photo more darker. As you can see the hair and the right shoulder has been removed, this does not matter because later I am going to crop the picture in half.

During the editing process the colour of the lipstick wore by the model has changed colour from red to blue. To get the red colour back I selected the tool which looks like a pain brush on the toolbar and then selecting the colour I wanted on the colour wheel. Instead of going for a red colour I went for a more orange red.

I used this tool to change the colour of the models lips. I changed the tolerance level to 10 so that the colour is not very vibrant because I know when I edit the picture further the colour may become more visible and vibrant. I also increased the size of the brush so that it will cover a large surface area so that the colour distribution is even throughout. Her is the finish effect after using the tool.

I went back on Photoshop and increased the vibrance to 75 to get the colour on the lips more visible. I also got back the right shoulder.

I then selected the exposure and decreased it to -3.0 to get the dark tint back and create a light grey background.

Now that I have finished editing my photo I open up Microsoft PowerPoint and opened the picture.

Here is the before and after of my photo and I am very happy with the finish product. It came out just how I planned and now I am going to crop the image in half and start adding text so that the image looks like a poster such as a tagline and date of release

Here is a mock up of my poster, this allows me to visually see how my finished poster may look and check to see if there is anything I want to change or add. I used the Arial front for all the text and experienced with the placement of the film title and colours. I decided to go for colours which compliment the colours in the photo used which lead me to a blue and red colour scheme.

Here is the finished poster, I deceived to combined both mock up posters together to create my finished poster. I changed the colour of the tagline to a more orange red to match with the lipstick and this also works with the orange in the lollipop. This prop was used because it relates to both the tagline and title of the film and is a way to keep the name of the film in the viewers mind. I added the release date under the title in the same colour as the tagline, I also added the website of the film to the bottom of the poster in small front, the dream works logo which I made on PowerPoint and a 18 adviser age as well. I went for a simplistic teaser trailer with a modern style , I was inspired by an In Time poster I saw.

These are the two poster that inspired me to create my poster, both of them use the an extreme close-up cropped in half and a blue colour scheme. I have analysed the In time poster and I think both posters are very effective.
