Falling apple

This was one of the easiest yet difficult things I did. I recently did this at home. I have Photoshop on my computer but it’s not the same version as the one we use at school. I couldn’t find the timeline feature,so I tried to do this project on my phone.

I used two different apps. I started out by making and saving each frame individually on an app called Photoshop Mix. I was able to make the apple look like it was falling while making the one that was on the tree look opaque. After getting my frames, I used another app called Gif Maker to make the frames into a gif. This worked perfectly and I loved the way the gif looked, but there was a watermark on the gif that I couldn’t remove. I googled how to remove a watermark from a gif on Photoshop.

When I went on Photoshop I was kind of exploring what else I can do on it, and I came across an “animate” feature after clicking save for web. Upon discovering this, I did a victory dance,

and then I went on to trying to animate the apple on Photoshop. This wasn’t that hard because I already knew how I wanted to do it and I used this video to guide me a little. It doesn’t look exactly like I wanted but this is my finished product, pretty happy with it!

Semester so far

Am I the only one that thought this semester didn’t really feel like a semester? It was just some days of waking up, going to York, doing some work just to come back home and do more work. Since I only go to school three times a week this semester, I have…..5 days left of […]

Am I the only one that thought this semester didn’t really feel like a semester? It was just some days of waking up, going to York, doing some work just to come back home and do more work. Since I only go to school three times a week this semester, I have…..5 days left of school!!!!

I honestly didn’t know how much days I had left until I checked it for this blog. MOMENT OF REALIZATION!!

Break is so close, but so far away. Just a couple more blogs to go, the finishing touches on my website, and presentation.

Then finishing up some work for my other classes, then finals week.

Then BREAKKKK!!

NMSK Day

NMSK Day or National Muslim Soup Kitchen day was on April 29. Masjid As-Siddiq participated in it this year again. We catered to 400 people this year, which is a lot more compared to our 35 people from last year. The people we catered to were spread out between 3 different locations. I like being […]

NMSK Day or National Muslim Soup Kitchen day was on April 29. Masjid As-Siddiq participated in it this year again. We catered to 400 people this year, which is a lot more compared to our 35 people from last year. The people we catered to were spread out between 3 different locations.

I like being a part of this because it really feels good to help others when they need it. Seeing the smile on peoples face and knowing that I was a part of making that happen was all it took in return.

We were all genuinely happy to be helping and we will continue to participate in more things like this in the future. Hopefully we will be able to cater to more people also.

For the soup kitchen, I usually make the dessert. This year I made brownies and a cake. Since I am still a beginner at baking, I tried my best and had plenty of help at home. Wouldn’t have been able to make this without the tremendous support I get from my family and friends! 🙂

 

     

Thursdays…

Although I have to get up early every morning, Thursday is the only day in my week where I have to go to school for 10 o’ clock. Since it’s about an hour commute to school, and the bus is never on time, I have to leave my house early in order to make it […]

Although I have to get up early every morning, Thursday is the only day in my week where I have to go to school for 10 o’ clock. Since it’s about an hour commute to school, and the bus is never on time, I have to leave my house early in order to make it on time.Although I’m always late with everything in the morning, I’m surprised I actually get to school on time…..most of the time.

Thursdays makes me feel like I’m still in high school. The semester is almost over, but I’m still not used to going in for a 10 o’ clock class. I prefer afternoon classes.

Copyright Law

The copyright law came about in 1976. It says that the creator of a piece of work has ownership over it. The creator is the only one that can choose how to and who can use it. They are able to say if people can alter it or not. This act is in effect up until 70 years after the creator’s death. After the expiration date, the piece becomes public domain and anyone can do anything with it.

I found this article interesting. It’s about a man that used someone else picture, pixelated it. This was seen as infringement to attorneys that represented the photographer. He ended up having to pay $32,500 before he was able to use the artwork again.

Although the copyright law exists, it’s not the most flawless law. Some copyright piece of work is okay to use if they pass certain requirements. For example, if the piece of work has been transformed, it’s considered “fair use.” This now comes down to someone’s opinion of if something is “transformed.” The judge has the say on if the piece is transformed or not and if it’s considered fair use or infringed. He gives a couple examples of work that has been transformed and is okay to use. I believe that he transformed the piece of work and therefore should be “fair use.”

When it comes down to people’s opinions , they’re not always the same and therefore you can’t judge everyone the same and won’t always get equal justice.
