This assignment may seem a little challenging because of it’s star rating (4 1/2 stars), but if you have the right tools it becomes an extremely easy and fun assignment!
First thing to do is to decide on the images you would like to use. You will need one image that contains a dramatic close up of an individuals face! For example, when I completed this assignment I chose the classic image of Ryan Gosling in the pouring rain from The Notebook.
The next image you will need to complete this assignment is an image for the background. This image could fit the scene and just be from a different movie/show, or it could be completely out of the blue! It is your choice so get creative. For my assignment I decided to get super creative mashing up photos and chose an image of a basket of puppies.
Next step is to combine your photos. You can do this with photoshop, or many apps. I recommend using Pasteify. It is extremely simple and effective when you want to photoshop two images together.
First Step of using Pasteify: Chose image to be your background (fun background)
Second Step of using Pasteify: Cut out your overlay image (dramatic closeup)
To complete this you use your figure to highlight the parts of this image you want to keep! This is an important note, you only highlight (in red) the parts you want to KEEP!
Third step of using Pasteify: Combine the two images. You can drag the cropped overlay image with your finger, increase or decrease the size, and lastly position it where you want it on your background.
Last step is to save or share your image from the app! Final result an awesome and hilarious mashup photo.
Hope this helps all of you tackle the “I’m Ready for My Closeup” Mashup assignment! Good Luck Everyone!!
