Color Change

Color Change

I picked this assignment because I thought it would be a pretty easy one. The original picture was taken by me when I was visiting Staunton in the early evening in July. I used my iPhone to capture the view. To be able to finish this assignment, I used photo editor software. Since I don’t have Photoshop software, I read some blogs that other people did on this assignment and found someone who used a free photo shop software called Pixlr which is similar to Photoshop. I googled Pixlr online and found out that I can download it for free. I downloaded a PC version and started to create my final assignment. First, I double click the Pixlr icon which was saved on my desktop after installation of the free software; then I open the pictures that were saved on my computer by clicking File on the tool bar in Pixlr. After the picture was loaded into the software, I tried each tool bar by clicking them and found out what each function is for. To be able to change the picture’s color to what I want, I first added effect to the original picture by clicking Effect, then added the Lan color which is under Subtitle color. Before I started the assignment, I roughly thought about what the picture would look like when I finished it. I wanted to add a creepy theme into the picture so I added an extra layer to the picture. I used the Overlay tool in the software and added the Language color under the Artmodern color. That’s it. I created the effect that I wanted. Finally, I saved it to my computer. Then, I uploaded the finished piece to my Flicker account. Also, I embedded the URL link from my Flicker account to my blog.

    It’s a great picture, but it would be so much better if you would tell us the thoughts behind it, how you went about making it, and what you thought of the results.
