GIF the Portrait Project- Jack Frost

Original Image of Jack Frost Photoshop-Hue/Saturation

 

Photoshop Filters

Create GIF using Giphy

During class, the steps of creating GIF is done with Photoshop and Giphy. First, is uploading a portrait image in Photoshop. I choose the fictional character Jack Frost from the movie Rise of the Guardians. The cold weather of autumn reminds me of winter is approaching soon, and that is when I recall my childhood crush of Jack Frost (he is a personification of winter). Also, Jack Frost came to mind since Frozen 2 is coming out this month and being that there are many fan fiction of the relationship between Elsa and Jack as both share the same ice power. After I upload the photo in Photoshop, I click the hue/saturation filter and then click colorize and experiment with the hue, saturation, and lightness. I made the image blue to represent winter (snow, ice, cold, etc.) and black and white as neutral colors. Next, I experiment with different Photoshop filters. Lastly, I upload and rearrange the filter images onto Giphy. Then, I reduce the duration to .01 seconds and add the glitch filter. I found this project to be enjoyable, particularly experimenting with the difference gallery filters on Photoshop.

 

Reactions to CT 101

When I signed up for CT 101 and thought digital story telling would mean I would be writing blog posts every week.

Then, first day of class, Ryan says “no final exam” and “no research paper”

My joy got higher when i heard “you get to make memes and gifs”

Even more cool!!

So, here is my first gif ever. I troubleshot it a couple of times but I think it looks decent.

“Your sweater looks good, aunt Tracy”

This second gif I created is an accurate representation of me thinking of what to do for this assignment.

But, I’m looking forward to a fun semester where I don’t have to read and just get to have fun on the internet.

This is how I get ready to go to class every Tuesday morning.

Momentarily sad that it will be over in thirteen weeks.

Eh, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.

After playing around with Photoshop CS6 for over 30 minutes, I finally made my second gif. So far I’ve found that I prefer to make gifs from still-images and this may be something that becomes “my style” as far as gif’ing goes. I want to find more interesting images and try to incorporate color next time.
