However, despite my frustration I was determined to get my head wrapped around this project. My brain processes information in a visual linear style of learning; I have to see the steps while performing the action. I would like to list the steps that I performed to produced the image you are viewing hopefully, these steps will help reinforce what I learned, deepen my understanding, and promote self-confidence. The steps performed are as follows:

  2. Change pixels to inches.
  3. change the width to 8″ and Height 10″  according to Professor Ryan a “headshot is 8×10″(Seslow, R personal communication February 27, 2018)
