Colours can also be changed after drawing them. Keep the star shape selected and look at the Colors panel on the right. Change the Fill colour to yellow/orange and the Stroke colour to black. 47. With the star still selected, hover your mouse around the outside of one of the corner circles of the bounding box so that you see a curved arrow. 48. Hold down and drag your mouse back and forth to see the shape rotate. Rotations can be done the same way on images and text. 49. Click File > Save to save the completed file.

19 Activity 4 More on graphics In this activity, you will put special effects on objects that you have drawn or added to your canvas. 1. Keep act_3 open, or re-open it if you already closed it. Hit File > Save As to make a duplicate copy but name this new one act_4 . 2. Now you will be working in act_4 which is initially the same document as act_32 but you'll be adding new effects to spice this one up! Borders and outlines 3. Using the Move Tool (the cursor icon near the top of the Tools Palette), double click on the big title text "Sunny Day Golf Course" so that you see the blue bounding box around the text (or select that text layer in the Layers Panel) 4. Click the fx button at the bottom of the Layers panel to bring up the Layer Effects pop-up window. 5. In the Layer Effects window, click on Outline and check the box to activate it. The Radius setting indicates the thickness of the outline so drag that slider back and forth to see the text outline grow and shrink. Set it around 2 px. Click the Close button in the lower right corner to close this Effects window.

20 6. Notice that, in the Layers Panel, this layer now has an fx to the right of it. This indicates that it has some special effects on this layer. You can click on that fx to reopen the effects for this layer in case you ever want to edit or remove the effects. 7. Now click on the Green Background to select it and then click the fx button. 8. Select and activate the Outline effect. 9. Drag the Radius slider up to about 10 px. You don't see anything change here and this is because the outline is on the outside of the selection, which in this case is the entire canvas. This means an outline is being added but it is right around the canvas so we can't actually see it. 10. To change this so that the outline is on the inside like a border, change the Alignment menu to Inside, and you should see the black border appear around the edge of the canvas as you move the Radius slider. 11. Click on the Color picker box in the Layer Effects pop up window to bring up a colour selector and choose an orange shade for the border. Then close the Layer Effects window.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
