Visual Assignments #2 ………Here Kitty Kitty ? or Not !!

Here Kitty Kitty….

The Story:

This was my second Visual  Assignment. I chose this assignment because I love animals and I love seeing how they would look if they had different parts from another  animals. http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/here-kitty-kitty

A Tutorial

I first  had to look for a basic picture of a horse so I googled : Downloadable horse Pictures (by know you probably notice picture is going to come from the internet) . I found a horse picture  I liked and downloaded it to my computer. I then repeated the process and but this time searching for dragon wings (I downloaded the wings also to my computer). I uploaded the horse picture using  PhotoFlexer  (This is a free program that was suggested that was free without a download). I then repeated the process but this time uploading the dragon wings .  I then used the  “Gleek” button that allow for “smart cutout” (There version of “smart” I guess) to trim the wings. There is a prompted to help you along in the process. After the process was over I was left with the cut down version of the wings. I then adjusted the wings to fit on the horses back…

…..And there you have it how a Dragon Horse came to be !!!!

Concusion :   This is the best one so far. I used Photo Flexer to create manipulate the look of the wings. The insertion looks nearly perfect, I think that Photo Flex works perfect. My goal is by the end of the course understand the functions of  PhotoFlexer and use it to advantage me, I can use this skill for my personal blog.

 

Visual Assignments #1…. Family Friendly BillBoard

The Story:

This was my first Visual  Assignment so it was more like an experimentI tried to read a  “Family Friendly Billboard” http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/family-friendly-billboard/

A Tutorial

I first  had to look for the billboard I googled : Downloadable Billboards. I found the billboard I liked and downloaded it to my computer.  I then used a photo from Iphoto (I have a mac if you had not already guessed) for my picture on the billboard. I uploaded using  PhotoFlexer  (This is a free program that was suggested that was free without a download). You are then allowed with the program to upload another photo so I did that. I then used the  “Gleek” button that allow for “smart cutout” (There version of “smart” I guess). There is a prompted to help you along in the process. After the process was over I was left with the cut down version of my face.

Concusion :

Even though I did not complete this Assignment I learned a lot from it. When I first saw the assignment I thought it was an super easy one. Turns out that I learn probably the most I have in a while. I learned that you really need to read and follow directions. Reading the instructions is a challenge because I am very visual. I first tried  as the instructions suggested to try one of the photo editors that some one had previously
