  1. 1. Step by Step editing of my Front cover image
  2. 2. Opening the image 1 2 3 Begin by opening the image you wish to edit. Click file(1) then open (2) and finally choose the image you want and click open.
  3. 3. Crop Secondly I cropped my image to get rid of any unwanted scenery in the image and make the image easier to edit. For those unaware of how to crop; the crop tool is situated to the left toolbar.
  4. 4. Next I removed any blemishes and spot etc. This was to give the image a more clear edge which is what I am trying to recreate with the magazine. To remove blemishes I simply clicked the plaster tool on the left toolbar.
  5. 5. Converting Black and White 1 4 3 2 Considering my genre of magazine is Indie Rock I wanted the image to replicate this genre. The genre itself is considered dark and mysterious so by converting my image to black and white I thought it supported the magazine genre. Although I wanted to keep the red in the bandana and here is how I selected the red.
  6. 6. Converting Black and White Next was the actual conversion to black and white while maintaining the red bandana. This was a very easy process, all I had to do was the previous steps to select the red and then click black and white(see image) which was situated to the right of my Photoshop window.
  7. 7. Save 3 1 2 Lastly dont forget to save your work. File(1) then save as(2) and then when the window to save appears select which format you would like to save as. I recommend Jpeg(3)
