Assignment: This is my ds106 assignment. This assignment was that I had to choose one person from five whom I was given by the professor, and then make his card by using one random pokemon card. I chose the person Alan Kay because I thought his conception of the internet really helped our daily life.
Process: I used GIMP ver2.6 for this assignment.
1. I used tuhis pokemon card fond on the Google picture.
2. I opened the file (pokemon card) as a layer on Gimp2.6
3. I added another layer so that I could paste Alan Kay’s picture over the celebi’s picture.
4. I used “Stamp” function and put the background color over the characters.
5. After I used “Stamp” to hide original characters, they were a little bit blurry, so I used “Repair Brush” to make them more natural.
6. And then, I used “Text” function and typed all the “Skills” and their effect (I put the information about what he did indeed).
7. I “Save”d the picture and DONE !!!!
Story: It was first time for me to use any picture editing software, such as Gimp, so it was very challenging for me puttin two different picture into one. I need to get familiar with those kind of softwares because I have to post new articles and my challenging on the wordpress every day. this assignment, I think, was very useful and enjoyable enough to attreact me to the world of cyberspace. THANK YOU.
