Update the Lockup and Logo


Editing the Logo


1) Read through the to-do assigned in Basecamp

The to-do in Basecamp will include the link to the website you are updating, the old lockup, new lockup, and any edits/specs. Download the logos as you will need both to edit the updated lockup.


2) Open both the new and old lockup in Photoshop


3) Create a new file in Photoshop with the specs provided in the Basecamp to-do


4) Drag the two lockup files into the new file


5)Position the old lockup in the new file and set to a lower opacity


6) Position and resize the new lockup to match the old lockup


7) Edit out “College of Liberal Arts”

Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select the area containing what you want to edit out. Create a new layer and then use the brush tool in white to “whiteout” the contents contained in the selected area.



8) Export edited lockup

Export the edited lockup as an optimized jpg or png (specified in Basecamp to-do) by using “Save for Web (Legacy)…” in Photoshop’s export options.
