Last week in CT 101, Professor Seslow taught us how to make GIF Portraits using Adobe Photoshop. My first taught and reaction doing this was *gasp* “This is going to be difficult.” I was not wrong because it requires it careful attention and good eye sight. Eye sight you say? What do you mean? Well, this is just my nit-pick at Photoshop some of the options are so tiny to the naked eye that you can miss it sometimes. However, with that being said I have to admit after a few trials and errors I finally learned how to make GIF Portraits correctly!
As you can see below, I made a GIF Portrait of the honorable Malcolm X. I can say a lot about Malcolm X but I will tell you one thing Malcolm taught me how to really be critical in life and always search for knowledge. Nothing we ever learn will go to waste. It will only help us to grow and blossom into someone better then we were yesterday. I personally want to thank my my English Professor Dr. Namphy for teaching me about Brother Malcolm. If anyone has not read The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley, I recommend that you read it as soon as possible. As Malcolm X once famously said “There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contain its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time.” This quote is a prime example of how I view my life as a whole. I may not be best at what I do but I make sure I put my best foot forwards at all times. I do not give up and will never give up!
