Your Favorite Teams Mashup Tutorial

Posted by

Here is a tutorial for the Your Favorite Teams Mashup assignment .

1) Select your two favorite sports teams

2) Find an image of the two teams logo’s and download them to your computer.

3) Go to

4) Select “open image from your computer” and open the two images you just downloaded.

5) Choose which image is going to be the base image and which is going to be the second layer image. For me I chose to use this image as the base: New_York_Yankees_logo_wallpaper

And this image as the layer:


5) Navigate to the base image, and edit the area where your layer image will be used. Here is a screenshot of my workspace.

6) Navigate to the layered image. Use the pixlr tools to edit the image to mesh well with the base image. In my example, I cropped the image to be smaller and removed the upper wing using the eraser.


7) Once you are satisfied, save the new edited image.

8) Navigate back to the base image. Go to ‘Layer’ –> ‘open image as layer’ to open the layer image on top of the base image.

9) move the layered image into the proper spot, and you are finished!
