WOW! The presidency ages the occupants of the office. It is a hard job that requires an iinvestment
of time and energy. In similar fashion, learning how to create a Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) during a class session with fellow students, also learning themselves can be extremely stressful. I was completely lost during the presentation.
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:
- Open new document in photo shop because another student’s work may be open or set to previous settings.
- Change pixels to inches.
- change the width to 8″ and Height 10″ according to Professor Ryan a “headshot is 8×10″(Seslow, R personal communication February 27, 2018)
- change the resolution to 72
- Color mode should be set to RGB
