On the mode dial you’ll see a little flower icon, this is the macro mode setting. It allows you to take photographs of smaller objects while creating a shallow depth of field. We'll spend a great deal of time talking about depth of field this semester, but for now, know that it refers to the blur you see behind your subject.

  • Click the add button

  • Choose Empty (You'll notice in your layers panel the words "Layer 2" highlighted in blue above your background.

  • Choose the fill tool (the paint bucket symbol). Make sure white is selected.

  • Click on the background to apply (your image will turn white)

  • Click on the three vertical dots in your layers panel, or your settings button, and lower the opacity of the white layer to 11%

  • Click the add button again and choose text

  • Click Edit from the top tool bar and change the font to one you prefer, as well as the style

  • Next, go to text layer settings, and under Blend Mode, choose overlay and lower the opacity to 30%

  • Flatten and Save

Create three different watermarks on your three marco images and turn them into Schoology.
