In this fun creative class you will learn to combine basic photo editing skills with layering and masking tools to create outlandish fake photos. You will enter the world of visual hoax by creating photos of yourself on the moon, in a valley of dinosaurs and in a number of other interesting settings. You will even have the chance to be the star of your own magazine cover. This bit of fakery is sure to impress your friends and the skills you learn can be used in school to enhance homework assignments.
