Galaxy Effect Using Pixlr

Galaxy effect is really a cool effect and it is very easy to create using Pixlr. When I was scrolling through videos to get some ideas for my next project, I saw this effect. I was very enthusiastic to learn this effect. So, I took the picture of my favorite actor Jake Gyllenhaal. The final product of this effect is very beautiful.


These is the link of the video that I have used for creating this effect



3-D Effect Using Pixlr

Pixlr is a cloud-based set of image tools and utilities, including a number of photo editors, a screen grabber browser extension, and a photo sharing service. The suite was intended for non-professionals, however the apps range from simple to advanced photo editing. It’s function is similar to Photoshop. But, one great difference is Pixlr does not have any timeline bar. So, any kind of animation or GIF cannot be created by using this online photo editor. This 3-D effect on Pixlr is similar to the Glitch effect on Photoshop. Using Pixlr for this effect is much more easier than using Photoshop. I take a photo of Cinderella for doing this effect because it is one of my favorite fictional character from Disney world. When I tried to do the 3-D effect on this photo, it was not that hard for me. I have watched couple of you tube videos and tried to create this effect. The links of the videos are given below:

After working with glitch effect of the picture, I became interested to work with the text effect. I must say the text effect was more complicated than the picture. I was taking help from the Youtube video and still I messed up some part of it. I tried to figure out my mistake and I became confused. But, I finished my work. This is the GIF of animated text with glitch effect:

Working with photoshop is complicated and interesting. Complicated because it has many unexpected cool features and there are thousands of ways to create one certain effect.Photoshop is interesting because if one knows how to use it, he/she can conquer the web world with own creativity. I never used Photoshop before taking this class. My first Photoshop Gif took hours to complete because I was struggling to figure out the functions of each command. Though every week I try to do something new and struggle a lot, I believe this is a great learning opportunity.

This week I tried to create GIF using Glitch effect. I found a good Youtube video to help me out. This effect is really cool. Every week I struggle a lot to find good quality pictures. Making layers, using layer masks, grouping different frames, confuse me a lot. I am practicing and hopefully will understand with time. This is my GIF with glitch effect:

I really want you guys to try this effect and if anyone know where and how I can find good quality pictures, please let me know.
