My project for this assignment was Image editing. I am doing image editing for a second time in this class because I want to learn more of how to perfectly use the online tools for editing. For my image editing I used Pixlr https://pixlr.com. I used three images from the internet. Pixlr is simple to use, it is not such a complicated and hard, and it has different tools options such as eraser, color picker, marquee tool, sponge tool etc… The whole purpose for using these pictures was to give a big picture of the corrupt political system in Eritrea and the immigration. The first picture is about one form of torture in the country. The punishment that is described in the first image is of a person who is after beating and torturing for hours then the hands were tied on a tree. It is a tyronical type of a torture. The second picture is also almost the same and the third on is a picture of Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia. It is reported that Ethiopia received about 120,000 Eritrean immigrants among them are soldiers, children, women and men of different ages and places from the country, and their reason for fleeing from the country is that they could not tolerate with the punishment and cruel life in the country because of the ruling party. The party which is leading Eritrea is known for violating human rights and committing Major crimes against the people. The united nations reported that the government is one of the worst government in our world today is the Eritrean government for human rights abuses. Most of Eritrean people are forced to leave the country and are immigrating to nearby countries such as Ethiopia, Sudan, and Djibouti, and they are accepted as refugees and are recognized by U.N. and there are also thousands of Eritrean in different countries of Europe and Israel. There is no country in the face of the earth which has not an illegal Eritrean immigrant.
I did not have that much difficulties and failures in this project it was interesting and that is because I did image editing before. Throughout this project my intention was to lean how to use the tools for image editing and I have learned many things from this project, communicating through arts, and different tools for image editing. I also did not experience any difficulties or failure. I learned about myself that I was interested in the editing art and how it helps us understand history.
