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.
