“Honey, I Shrunk My Sister”

It took me a quite a long time to actually choose a project to do. When I did find one that I thought would be easy to create I realized that it was actually quite difficult especially since I did not have the right software. In this class, I am starting to realize that Photoshop is veryyyyyyyy useful when it comes to certain assignments. Even if you are just trying to edit a picture seems like the best photo editing software and probably the only one that should be used is Photoshop. Unfortunately I do not have Photoshop and it still confuses me so I had to find something that I could use that could give me the results I want.

With the tool I had I decided to do a visual assignment called, “A Whole New World”. The goal of the project is “Take a picture of your subject (grandparents, pet, yourself) and put it into a totally different background in which they appear abnormally too small or too large. Think of Honey, we shrunk the kids.”  I decided to use my sister as my subject and use this free online photo editor called LunaPic. LunaPic is a great photo editor and in my opinion got the job done even though its a little blurry but was having difficulties fixing that.

  1. I thought this was really neat.

    I wonder if we could use Prof Smith’s tutorial on image stacking to make this move.

    I want to try this, thanks for sharing.

  2. Omg I totally agree. I feel like I can’t do anything without photoshop and I don’t have it on my computer. I can’t lie, I did consider purchasing it. My goal is to go to the CT room one day every week and try using photoshop to knock out an assignment.

  3. There is actually a free and open source digital imaging piece of software called GIMP. It’s free and there are both Mac and Windows versions. It’s really powerful and has many features similar to Photoshop. There are tons of tutorials out there to get started with it.
