Class 07

Making Maps in Photoshop and Illustrator

In this class, we reviewed methods for creating selections in Photoshop, and practiced converting these selections to paths and exporting them to Illustrator.  We used these techniques to create macro maps (country and state) and micro maps (road maps)–skills that will come in handy when designing the map of the New School campus, a Project 2 requirement.

Photoshop selection tools we reviewed included:

Select < Color Range

Quick Mask

Magic Wand

Pen Tool
