Going For Gold

Recently my colleague had won tickets to go see the olympic’s. So I took the week off to have some down time and travel a bit. My time at the olympics was a short one but I  was able to see Gabby Douglas, A shining star going for Gold.This poster dose not do her justice, Gabby has a confident but humble attitude. And you know what they say about attitude, attitude is everything.

(This picture comes from the Visual Assignment Sports Poster  2 1/2 Stars)

And this is how I did it:

First I opened Google and Googled “Dominque Dawes gymnastics free Downloadable images” (at the time I didn’t know that I was going to pick Gabby Douglas for my poster)

Then I scrolled through the results there found a picture of which turned out to be Gabby Douglas. to take a screenshot of the picture I wanted instead of downloading it directly. I also did this to the smaller picture of her as well.

They turned out very well, I took the files strait away and but them on my desktop by dragging and dropping. Them I then opened  Photoflexer and uploaded them there (one at a time).

I decided it needed a little fancy something so I added her name to the poster by clicking on the text button. A text box was then added to the picture, it took some time to get use to.

I moved the text into the right hand corner then I went through the process of saving the picture by clicking “Save” and going through the prompted you can see the process in 2 steps.
