Thank You CT101!

Entering the class of CT101, I didn’t know what to expect. Honestly, before class, I was pretty nervous because I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to perform and adapt well in class. We were introduced with Adobe Photoshop. As soon as I notice we were going to use that, I feared that it’ll take so much time to get use to because of how complex it was. However, I was afraid for nothing.

It wasn’t bad at all. Using Photoshop, I actually enjoyed every part of it. Thanks to Professor Ryan, we learned many different features and how to manipulate an image. We learned numerous of things such as, creating a GIF Portrait, Vapor Wave, Averaged Portrait, and more.

The work that I highly enjoyed working is the GIF Portrait! Creating your own gif portrait was really fun, however the process of making one was very time consuming. Remembering and following the steps were complex, so listening to every detail that was stated is a must. Other than that, I was able to create a GIF Portrait of Steve Carell.

I think that applying photoshop into my world outside of class will definitely be an important tool to use to improve my editing skills on the images I take. I really love taking pictures, and for me to use photoshop can make an image look so much better. With a whole variety of features in photoshop, editing has never been more fun!

Maintaining my website, http://worksofjan.com/, became a daily routine for me. Ever since I made this website, I feel obligated to continue posting because I really enjoy posting the things I worked on. Every post that is updated, I feel satisfied and happy for myself. Hopefully, I will continue to progress with my website and the content that is posted.

Overall, CT101 was amazing and by far, one of my favorite class I have taken. Working hard on all the assignments, it was worth my time, and I had a blast! I really enjoy being in the classroom too, for I have not missed a day throughout the semester.  To be completely honest, if I were to give myself a grade, I would give myself an A+, because I was able to work hard and happily complete all my assignments and improve on my website.

I will truly miss having CT101. I am very thankful for this amazing semester, and thank you Professor Ryan! I hope all of you have a healthy and happy summer! 🙂

 

Final Post CT101( I had a great time)

CT101 is one of the most interest I have taken in all of my classes. I enjoy a lot. I enjoy the GIF-making part a lot. I said it is the second best project I have done in the class. The best project is to create our own website. I found it very interesting when customizing my own website. I have to think about everything before I publish the post. In addition, I like how I can put different contents under different categories. I learned a lot about Photoshop over the course of the semester. I love to modify the picture and put them together is far beyond fun. It is entertaining. Well, at least for me. I would say the most shocking feature of Photoshop is GIF creation. I thought Photoshop is just about modifying photos. Making GIF using Photoshop is a completely new experience for me, but I like it. I think I deserve an A in this class. I have done all the assignment in the class on time. However, I missed two classes due to the extreme condition of cold. I still post blogs on time though. I think I missed one weekly sign in, but I post a blog on that week. I will maintain my website over the next year because it is my first personal website. I enjoy sharing something that really interesting and inspiring in my website.

Lastly, I want to say. Good job, everyone.

 

this is the real last, I just want to special mention vaporwave project.  The vapor wave picture making reminds me of how I crafted my first picture in the Photoshop.

Say It Ain’t SoOoOOOoo🎤

I cannot believe how fast the semester is finishing up:

Over the semester, I learned how to make gifs using Photoshop and imgur.com. where I made a few gifs. I learned how to make memes using photoshop and learned that Helvetica is a great font.

In class, we learned how to make multi-faced portraits. This portrait of Alfonsina Storni is one of my favorite posts, it was cool/challenging to edit the layers.

One of the posts I had difficulty with was the week we focused on the Vaporwave aesthetic. I think my end result was too cluttered, but I do like the Vaporwave art style. I think my grade for this course would be a B-or an A- because I missed one week’s post and was late on two posts. Learning Photoshop helped me start a project that would not have started without taking this class. It is so exciting, I started an Instagram page called @broadcityeverywhere. It’s a page that has Abbi & Ilana in different landscapes and I’m starting with Pride and Prejudice landscapes.

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer at Lyme Park

The image above took a minute because I edited the duo from the original background. You can see the original on the latest post over on my website.

Broad City
Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth

Also this semester, I liked editing vintage travel posters of Peru and Venice.

This poster makes me want to travel in Italy thinking about how it is the home to thousands of rounds of parm >>

As for my website riverakatherine.com, I will keep it up and update it with some of the posts from the Broad City and Pride and Prejudice page. Thank you, Professor Ryan, and fellow CT101 classmates for making this course fun! 🙂

Final Post! Goodbye everyone ~.~

CT101 has been the most interesting class I’ve ever taken! I’ve always been into web design and blogging so the skills I’ve learned during this class is going to be very helpful for me. The skills I’ve learned in photoshop will allow me to make memes, posters and so much more! I know for sure I will use my skills on my election because the 2020 election is coming up. I want to continue blogging on my website nflfeelsthebern.com and use the skills I’ve learned in CT101 to better spread the knowledge of this upcoming election. I do intend to keep my website unbias and report more than just about Bernie Sanders. Until the election progresses, I am following Bernie Sanders because candidates like Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, etc. have not had rallies or many town halls. Overall, my website will make it clear that although I cover all of them, my ultimate favorite is obviously…:

The above is one of the projects I’ve worked on in CT 101,  a gif portrait. It was awesome how many steps are needed to make a 3 sec GIF. The amazing part is with practice, it takes less and less time.

Continuing on, we transformed propaganda posters. This was my favorite project because it was a time in the semester where I felt comfortable to go out of my way and play with photoshop. It really made my poster stand out which made me really proud!

Finally, the vaporwave project was interesting to work on because it was something very original. I was unable to finish it in class so I had to complete it at home which made it very difficult. I do not have photoshop so I had to look for alternatives and came upon an awesome alternative called https://www.photopea.com/!

Overall, this semester was amazing.   I worked really hard on all of the projects in CT101. I even added some of my own spice into many of the projects. It was in hopes that it made sure everyone knew it was mine :). To add, I have not missed one day of face to face class either! Never wanted too, it was always so fun and informative. Thus, due to all this, I believe for this class I’ve earned an A.

Lastly, please continue to check out my website nflfeelsthebern.com. Thank you, Professor Ryan and CT101 for a semester to remember!!!

Final Blog Post

CT101 was was one of the best classes Ive ever taken in my college career because I was really able to express myself in both blog posts and my website. Just like any other class there will be some ups and downs.

I really enjoyed making GIFs and  memes. These are the types f skills I will continue to use in  my website.  Here are some of my honorary mentions :

 

There were also times whereI had many downfalls and struggled with completed some of the assignments. For example, I really struggled using photoshop it was difficult for me to grasp the different concepts and had to start over assignments over again which was very frustrating. Here are some of the assignmnets I stuggled with.

Using DS106

 

Using DS106 was difficult because  I didn’t fully understand how to use photoshop. When completing assignments I accidentally press something on photoshop and the whole assignment would be ruined. I had to recieve helpfrom other classmates in order to complete assignmnets.

Furthermore, in the future I plan to maintain my website because its fun. It’ll be really fun to document the products , food, and places I go to.  I could use youtube as guide to help me transform my website into something bigger.

In conclusion cT101 was a class I would definetly recoomend someone to take this course. It was both educational and fun. If i were to give my self a grade I’d give myself a A- because I completed all the posts to the best of my ability but at the same time improve on posting more content on my website. I will truly miss this class.
