Assignment: Movie Trading Cards                                                                                              Worth: 4 Stars

These are movie trading cards of characters from the movie Shawshank Redemption, one of my favorite movies I have ever seen. I chose this movie because it is one that touched me allot when I first seen it; it’s one I can watch over and over again.

The process I took to create these cards was fairly simple. It was all a matter of getting a Topps baseball card outline from Google, once I had that it took simple editing with Gimp to put them together.


  1. Find Topps baseball card outline from Google.
  2. Find Images of movie characters from Google.
  3. With the use of Gimp I edited the pictures into the outline as well as adding text.
  4. I saved them as a JPEG and added them to my Flickr account.
