Assignment #1: Expanded Landscape - Instructions

Focus on one specific aspect of your experience that can be described as a landscape.
This is an opportunity to interpret the word "landscape" broadly and metaphorically if you wish.  You may choose to literally investigate the landscape of your neighborhood, or you might consider historical landscapes, ideological landscapes, etc.  Use multiple layers in Photoshop to create an image or series of images that represents your personal vision of this landscape, the way that you navigate it, or the way you might dream of transforming it.

Please prepare your assignment in the following way:
1. Save a full sized PSD format version of your image.

2. If your file is larger than 1200 pixels per side, save a second version that is no more than 1200 pixels per side.  
Resize it by going to IMAGE > Image Size.  
Make sure that the measurement unit is pixels and that "Constrain Proportions" is checked. Change the larger value to 1200.
Save As... [yourfirstandlastname.psd]

3. Make this smaller into a jpeg:  
Go to FILE > Save for Web and Devices...
Make sure it says JPEG and HIGH to the upper right of the image preview.
Click Save
Name your file [yourfirstandlastname.jpg]

Put both of these files in the folder ASSIGNMENT-1 on the art server.
