Try using selections in concert with the Image>Adjust>Hue/Saturation menu selection to affect the color in specific areas. Week seven, eight, and nine: The scholars will be creating an animated project in Photoshop, where they use photographs that they have already edited, or use images that they edit to make a three minute long segment.
