This magazine cover project really helped me to initially understand the basics of Photoshop. I enjoyed creating a replica Sports Illustrated cover because it combines my love of baseball with my love of technology and being creative. Although this project was focused more towards creating and manipulating a photo, it started to get me interested in the technical aspect of Photoshop that is used for photo editing. This project also helped me learn about Photoshop when I helped other classmates that needed help.

For this project, we used our knowledge of design principles and composition to help us understand how to create a magazine cover. To help me with creating this magazine cover, I used YouTube as well as various helpful websites to assist me with Photoshop. After completing this project, I was able to continue to learn about Photoshop at home watching YouTube tutorials on how to make my photography better.
