This semester was not an easy one for me since I was taking 3 upper level math classes. However, CT101 was a relief class even though I was struggling at the beginning since using Photoshop was a new thing for me. As the time went by I got used it little by little. I had fun using GIFs. The Zine project was a successful one for me, and I benefited from doing it since I learned new materials that I did not know about before. Now, I’m able to share the knowledge I gained in this class with others. I gave my a self between a B+ because I tried my best in class, did all 15 posts, submitted them and I was in class all the time. I will maintain my website because I want to use it to promote a business that I want to start in the future. This semester went by really fast.
For this Project I decided to use these 3 pictures because it connects how technology and the human mind work together. First I went to Pixabay.com to choose the pictures then I downloaded them from there. Then I used Photoshop to put them together. This is the First picture I choose.
This is the Second Picture. I choose this picture to show that the person is walking in the path they want to go in their life.
This is the third picture. This one shows how the lightbulb connects with ideas one may have.
After playing with Photoshops this was what I came up with when I put all the pictures together.
Then I manipulated it more to change the colors of the pictures by using Hue Saturation and using the mouse eraser tool to erase some background that I did not need.
This was the Final Outcome. This Project was a big challenge for me but I was Happy that I overcame it and finished it successfully. I came up with this quote because without the human mind being creative then technology wouldn’t be able to do many things.
Today I decided to use Muhamed Ali picture to make a giphy post. First I saved the image, then I went to photoshop opened it there, then I played with it for a while, saved the new image with the colors I want from adjusting on hue/saturation. I put together then I went to giphy.com and saved the new image. On the giphy website I pressed create new, uploaded the picture then I clicked on filter to choose my filters. The first filter I chose is the Dreamy filter.
Then I tried the Ripples GIF to see how it will look.
The Final outcome of my GIF is the Glitch.
I was excited while doing this project because it was my first time learning how to create a GIF.
I am very excited to have my own website and be able to put up some informations on it. I will be using CT101 for my classwork and my website on things that interest me. Come and check it out. http://halimatou.com/
