Photoshop tool

Magic Wand Tool

to use the magic wand tool you have to hold down the "quick selection tool" (this looks like a paintbrush). once you have found the magic wand tool you click on it and you will then be controlling this tool.

to use this tool you select a block of colour that you would like to change.  `once selected you can then, in the options bar, change the tolerance of your colour to make it more or less precise depending on your preference.

In many rap videos women do not have Identities but are used as eye candy and perceived as objects
They are used in videos to appeal to men. It does not matter if the song is bad but if you have a good video including a lot of girls then the sing will do well in the charts. 
The images used are not just used in hip hip and rap videos but re now started to be used in pop videos. This is as they are trying to appeal to a wider range o people. 
The images are also being included in films, television programmed and advertising to try and make people buy the product.  It is almost like hypnotising you to do something. 
However in music videos these are the only type of women you see.

Representation Presentation

Presented it very well
I Included a fair amount of detail
We missed a slide in the middle
The background didn't go we'll with the font colour
We used an inappropriate word

In this video "Candy Shop" by 50 cent it shows someone showing off all of their money, fast cars and riches. Also he seems to know a lot of women that he can have his "pick of". There is no other men in the video except from 50 cent and another man with a woman which suggests that he is in control of all of the women. He struts. Into his house which he refers to a "candy shop" meaning he can have his pick of all of the girls and any of he girls he wants.  He is the only man in the video and seems to only sing about the "candy shop" and it's contents, he doesn't sing about anything related to manhood

However in other Rap videos they sing about Manhood and growing up on the streets. For example eminem. in his music videos and song he sings about his childhood and how hard things were for him growing up.
