    Creating a looping gif

    by
    My good ole friend Jack introduced me to this song, Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” a few weeks ago and it has been with me ever since. This is your typical break up song, and the main idea is about that horrible feeling after a break up when you realize that you don’t ...

    Teen Girl Squad

    by
    In honor of Valentine’s Day Vamlumtimes Day I thought I’d make a quick GIF of Homestar Runner’s Teen Girl Squad episode 12. This was pretty easy to make.  Interestingly enough, I used to watch this back in the days before YouTube, but with the invention of YouTube I used that site to rip the video ...

    Arrested Development

    by
    Well, I’d say that turned out pretty well. I’ve been making some gifs lately and this was one of my favorites.  I’ve been doing kind of boring stuff (just cutting videos down into images) but this was one of the first where I’ve put something into the image to make it unique. I feel like ...

    Help! I’m trapped in a fortune cookie factory!

    by
    Welp.  Here’s my submission for the Movie Fortunes assignment. I know, this isn’t from a movie.  But, it is my dad’s favorite joke – every time he opens up a fortune cookie instead of reading his fortune he says “‘Help…. I’m trapped in a… fortune cookie factory?’  We’ve gotta help this guy!” So, this one ...

    And… We’re Back.

    by
    I’m signed up for Jim‘s summer DS106 class. That’s right, I’m taking DS106 for the second time.  When we say DS106 for life we really mean it. What am I thinking?   Anyway, the first assignment is to create a .gif from a favorite movie.  I’m not sure that I have a favorite movie, but ...

    Invisible World

    by
    Talk about a hiatus – sorry team. This challenge is from Worth1000, a Photoshop contest where winning isn’t the goal – it’s about getting better at image editing.  It’s called “Invisible World” and the idea is to edit a photo and take the people out. I was pretty intrigued by this idea and decided to ...

    Photoshop Prompt #10

    by
    Jim Groom is… A MANBABY.   Dear Digital Story Class: You are welcome.  So, so welcome. Evaluation: The hardest part of this was the shadows.  I couldn’t figure out how to separate the shadow from the object so I had to have layers covering up the shadows that showed up on the sky.  I also ...
