The tools i have used to edit any sort of media are the basic apps provide by my Iphone. These include Instagram filters, pic post play, frametastic and flipagram. I am comfortable using these apps to some extent but could know a lot more.I know how to shoot basic Iphone or ipad videos. I tried once to start youtube videos but didn’t get far because i didn’t know how to use Imovie. I am not comfortable, well really not knowledgeable enough on using photoshop software and things of that nature. So i am really fresh hence the title.
When manipulating photos I like to use Photoshop and GIMP. I used those two softwares to create a New York Knicks Charging Battery image on an old iPhone i had that was jailbroken. I also used Photoshop to change the slider to the Knicks logo and the carrier at the top of the phone to the Knicks logo as well. I would like to learn how to use iMovie and Audacity, because I have never used them before and I think it would be a great opportunity to learn how to use them.
I have very little skills in all forms of digital storytelling. The best I can do is basic image manipulation. Above is some work I’ve done in the past. The first was a black and white picture I decided to color in Microsoft paint about 10 years ago. The second is another picture I colored about 4 years ago, however I cannot recall the name of the software I used. Technically, I’m most comfortable with Microsoft Paint because all it has is the basics which I all I’ve needed for the type of editing I want to do but I’m aware that it’s a microcosm of real image editing software. I would like to become better with a superior image editing software like Gimp because I constantly feel the desire to make certain images but I’ve never had the skill to do so.
Im not real experienced in what this course requires. I have some experience in shooting video. I have recorded basketball games,church services, and other events. I have recently began working with Photoshop in my computer graphics class. I only used it for a couple of hours but I’m getting the hang of it. I began learning how to add colors to the background of pictures and how to erase things on the photo that I didn’t want there. I also learned how to scan an old photo and edit it to look brand new again.
This is one of the photos I am working on in photoshop. As you can see i’m erasing the background.
When I was younger I love to take photography, taking pictures and remembering the moments when the pictures are taken is very valuable to me. Then I started using Photoshop to make a T mobile commercial for my computer class in high school, that was a very fun experience. As I got into a more advanced computer class in high school we started using Poser 7 to create short animations, I couldn’t really get how that works but I still managed to make a 30 second short animation. I’m most interested and comfortable in Photoshop because I had some previous experience of that and it amazed me how real the picture is after being photoshopped. I’m not familiar with making GIFS and I want to learn how to make them because it seems very fun and entertaining.
I took this picture when I was at vacation and I am amazed at how the colors blend together very well I love photography.
