Tech Task #6
I chose to focus on colours as suggested by DS106 Assignment bank. The focus on colour assignment asks the student to focus on a single colour within an image. I spent quite a bit of time trying to download GIMP, a program suggested by DS106 but I gave up. I eventually found an alternative called LunaPic. I found this program easy to use with many different options to modify pictures.
This is a picture of my niece. I tried to focus on the red except it bled through, so on my 33rd attempt I chose to focus on the green. I really like the effect because she becomes the focus instead of the apple. (Cute antennae, when will I see your wings?)
In addition, to the colour adaptations LunaPic offers other options such animations, special effects, and drawing tools.
Here I chose to make a picture cube.
I found this assignment very challenging and at times very frustrating But, when I decided to stop worrying and do like my students and just try something anything. I had fun and enjoyed seeing what I could do to the images.
Assignment 2 Warhol Something
It was great fun and I will return to this site to see what else I can do with my pictures.
