The making of my rock contents page Georgia Lonie

Choosing the font for the title (contents Page)To make the font for the title contents I went on to Dafont.com and selected the font to be Viking hell (the same as the masthead on my cover page).

After I typed the title in I pressed print screen and pasted the screen in to Photoshop by pressing edit and then paste.

Putting in and editing the main photo for the contents page To put this photo in I pressed file and then place and then chose the photo from my folder that I wanted.

After selecting this photo I resized the photo to the size that I wanted. I did this by pressing Show Transition Controls and while holding down the shift key I moved the corner of the photos to the size that I wanted, I held down the shift key so that the photos wouldnt be disproportionate. After doing this I wanted the photo to fade and get blacker as it got further to the right. To do this I got a paintbrush and painted black over the right side and then as I got closer to the left and to the model I used a different sharpness of the brush so that It appeared more faded.

Putting in the contents page title After I typed the title in DaFont.com I pressed print screen and pasted the screen in to Photoshop by pressing edit and then paste.

To get rid of the surrounding webpage around the title I pressed the magic want tool and while holding shift I pressed each letter. After I did this I pressed select and then deselected which meant that everything but the letter was selected. I then pressed the delete key which left just the letters.

After this I had to change the colour from black to yellow. I did this by pressing the FX button in the corner of the screen and pressed Colour Overlay which brought up the colour chart and I chose the yellow.

I used this by pressing the magic want tool and then pressing the black borders that I didnt want and then pressed delete. After this I pressed select and then deselect so that the deleted parts didnt have a border anymore.
