I decided to use an image in typical blue peter style ‘here’s one I did earlier’, this can of coke was from our class drawing lessons.  I imported it using adobe bridge (which is a great part of the PS software made this assignment very easy – as you can show a few images at a time).  Once the image had been uploaded i had to cut it out, so used the quick selection tool to get the basic shape of the can.  To apply the colour we used the polygonal lasso to make the selection, then used the paint bucket tool to fill the shape, did this 3 times for the for the 3 sections.  I removed the original ‘hand written’ text and replaced it with the adobe text tool – used the magic wand tool to remove it.

The final can after it had been coloured and shaped
