Digital Media Class
Instructor: Mr. Richbourg
This year the YWLA is very happy to have two sections of Digital Media at the High School
level. Students have a chance to work with Adobe Creative Suite 6 (CS6), a group of
programs that allows one to work with visual media. The first grading period, students
experienced Photoshop. Photoshop is a work environment in which existing pictures can be
changed, items added or removed, and placements altered. Students used their talents to make
face swaps, gender benders (placing the face of a man on a woman or a woman on a man),
insert ghost images, and create improbable animals. The only real criteria in working with these
projects was the end product had to look real.
A great example is the first picture. This is a classic face swap, with the original first
followed by the finished product below.
Another example of photo-manipulation is to to apply a ghost image to a background picture.
Trick or Treat!
A third example is to create something that does not exist, like the picture below:
The following pictures are student products, made by YWLA students as they developed their
expertise with the program while showing a considerable amount of imagination.
Well done, Ladies!

Steve Tyler never looked so good in real life. Hope you enjoyed seeing the work of some of our
students. There will be more posted later.
