For my quarter 4 project, I choose image editing again. This is the second time I am doing this project in my media design class. But, I decided to tell another story with two different pictures. This time instead of african roots it was about immigration. I edit it a boat and an airplane together because this is the way how immigrants travel to different countries. Also, depending on how you got to your destination overseas you can relate to the picture. So starting this project I thought it was going to be easy again, since it was image editing and I only had to submit two pictures but once I got to checkpoint 2, 3, and 4, I began to use photoshop where I had to editing the two pictures together and save it as a png etcc. But, midpoint in the project I changed to Pixrl because that was in my chromebook so itwas going to be easier.Then, I came to realize that it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be because it was just like Photoshop on a different brand. Some failures I faced during this project was that I forgot along the way how to use photoshop so it was hard to manupilate a little with Pixrl.
So, it took me back to square one and it was a little hard for me to edit the two pictures and Pixrl functions a little different then Photoshop. Also, the pictures came out with one background in it unlike when I used Photoshop so I had to go back there to edit again. Some success during this was the story behind the picture and during my presentation I could express myself and explain the picture clearly. This project inspired me to tell another story in the same manner. During this project I did not learn anything about myself really. If I were fortunated enough to do this project again I will not change anything I will only explore Photoshop and pixrl first and choose a different story. One, important advice that I have for the future people doing this project is that they should explore Photoshop and pixlr first to know what it can do, so they wouldn’t struggle at the end. Finally the tools I used was the magic wand, color changing, and eyedrop tool.
