Freedom in assignments?

How is this so possible?

The way things are looking in the class so far gears me up to learn some new computer skills that I can use forever.

Photoshop!  Something I have always wanted to learn since I first heard about it many years ago.  I mean, have you seen some of these images that have been manipulated to perfection?   I personally always liked the face swapping aspect of it.  they are so hilarious!

Photoshop I’m sure has lots of other purposes which would be cool to figure out how to use all of them.  I tried browsing the suggested Photoshop Battles site, but I wasn’t able to find easily distinguished Photoshop projects.  When I saw the title as Photoshop Battles, I expected to click into an array of swapped and exchanged photos with people showing off their skills.  Either way, Google is a great thing that exists.  I can easily search for some wicked projects people have done, and soon, I can even have my own nutty stuff on there.

If I practice one skill every class, I believe I can learn Photoshop quite well.  This can be like my secret weapon in my storytelling.  I can really express myself in ways that maybe I can only understand.  It is a great skill, because in this world of technology, we need to have a skill set that makes us stand out.

I learned how to create my own GIFs from YouTube videos and I am still pumped about that.  Also, if I just felt like browsing through GIFs I could use these cool sites that I was introduced to this semester called imagur and giphy.  The internet truly has the most resources in the world to learn to do almost anything you want.

A cool project for me would be combining the two into a Photoshop face swap GIF, like this one LOL.

Similar to a Photoshop GIF, have you ever seen those Photoshop videos?  The creators put faces of athletes and other people on videos of people dancing.  These things look pretty fake, but at the right time with the right scene, they are funny.  My classmate loves those things.  She has always known how to make GIFs and would like to learn video editing.  All I’m really doing now is learning some skills to make some funny pics, GIFs, and videos hopefully.

I’m looking forward to class tomorrow, I think we will learn how to use Photoshop.  Finally !

This will be our finally blog post for the class i am very sad to see this class end because this class gave me new meaning and understanding when it comes to websites and really the functionality of it. We meet up one time week but the ability to get all the information online and do the great was great because if anytime we got stuck with any work or not understanding any information when we meet up on Tuesday professor will help us at anytime.

I am just trying to figure out what am i going to do when the class is over because their will be moments that i might get lost and have to figure out how to fix the problem.

Creating this website was without a doubt a difficult task because everyone wanted to get the right theme. I am glad we had the ability to pick which theme we wanted to have the opportunity to customize it however we wanted to. Using WordPress was a big help to me. So, it took me about 2 weeks to finally select which topic I wanted. I had the first theme ready to go but I felt like something was missing with the theme. The idea for my theme is that I wanted a slide show so when you enter my website you have a chance to see a running slide show not just the same picture every time.

 

The biggest model I wanted for my website was quick links you can use to go to any website. I had googled, York college, CT 101, and YouTube. The new them I picked had everything that I ever wanted for a them but the links did not work. Once I later talked to my professor I learned about anchor tags which was a big help in figuring out what I actually had to do. Something that took me 2 weeks to figure out the professor was able to help me in 10 minutes which was just changing a few codes. On my website, I had a widget to always scan my website for any treats or hacking that could happen to my website. Sometimes I get random emails from random people which I am sure it is fake people sending spam email.

 

So, I got this widget to block that. I plan to keep this this website up and running because. Since my Grandma pasted away my family has been doing a lot more family vacation together. Our first big family vacation was Hawaii together for a week. Which brought the whole family together. I have a GOPRO hero 5 which I would record everything. I made my website red because I love the color red and decided to name my website kingdom because I feel like anyone is welcome to my website which they can express anything they feel and able to share ideas. I would recommend this class to anyone because it is a great learning experience. The guide line for the class was impossible to get confused with because every week has a step by step break down what we have to do. With a video if you are ever confused with the homework. I plan to keep my website

My ohhhh my how the semester has flew by. Just yesterday it felt like I was struggling to creating my first gif. No look at me! I have a fully operated personal blog and all. I couldn’t have asked for a better class this semester. It was fun learning new things in this class as well as interacting with classmates. One of my favorite things about this class is how Prof. Seslow made us utilize various desktop applications to create our work. An example of this is how the class was able to use giphy, imgur or photoshop to create a gif.  It goes to show that in the age of technology, there is always numerous ways to get things done, but it takes time to master all of them.

My favorite assignment I did in class was creating net art.

What I like most about it was that I was able to utilize one of my own photos as the subject and just get the glitch art off of the internet. I am definitely interested in making more of these in the near future. This assignment was also frustrating for me at the same time because I was not able to figure out how to use new hive or to.be in order to join my photo and the glitch art together. Instead, I ended up using Photoshop which took me some time but it still got the job done.

All in all, I can not complain about the experiences I had in CT 101. I learned a lot from this class and plan to hone the skills I have learned too. As for the future of my website, its still debatable at this point. Though it is a great platform, my problem will be finding time out of my schedule to post on my blog. I will try and see how things go. Well it has been real CT 101.

P.S. You should definitely follow my photography journey on Instagram, and hmu if you are interested in collaborating after the semester is over. Good luck on finals.

This semester in CT101 has been so much fun. I learned many things and I enjoyed Professor Seslow’s class so much this semester. Every Thursday morning I was excited to wake up and attend this class. I feel like Ive learned so much from this class. I now have an obsession with making gifs. I learned how to photoshop which is something Ive been excited to do. It so sad to say goodbye to such an amazing class. If I could I would take this class all over again. Im still working on my website and cant wait until its fully everything I wanted.  Its so sad to say goodbye.
