In order to make this video, I used the app “Pixgram” on my phone. It let me select all of the images I wanted to add into the compilation, choose how long I wanted each of them to display for, and whether I wanted to crop the images to fit in the square or have them fit with a white background instead. I chose to have each picture show for 1.5 seconds and fit the entire picture instead of cropping them. I also decided to add some music in the background so I chose “Take Me Higher” from their free music selection. After a few attempts to make the video file size less than 2MB, I decided to upload it to YouTube instead. I hope you enjoy the finished project and had as much fun looking at my DS106 work as I did creating it.

In order to find a poem for this daily create, I went on Google and searched “simple poem in Italian” and scrolled through until I found this one that was in Italian and did not include a translation. I then racked my brain for all of the words I could remember from my high school Italian classes. I did my best to translate it but I clearly do not remember a whole lot- I am proud of getting the basic concept correct, though. Then to get the actual translation of the poem, I used Google translate. I typed the poem in and took a screenshot of the result it gave me.

DS106 “The Forrest Gump Project”

I added myself into this image from the women’s suffrage movement.

I added myself into this image from the women’s suffrage movement. To find the original picture, I went on Google images and searched “women’s suffrage.” I chose the picture I wanted, then scrolled through pictures of myself to find one where I could cit out my head in put it between some people. I used the app “Adobe Photoshop Mix” to cut out and merge the two images. I also used the app to put a black and white filter on the image of my face so it would match the other picture. The cropping did not come out great and I’m not extremely happy with the way it turned out with the shadows and how I do not have a hat, but it is okay.

As a huge music lover, I’m constantly going to concerts. Although I would prefer to use my own photos during my daily creates, I was inspired to use this photo because it’s a picture of my favorite singer and the picture was taken by one of my friends (http://www.nkatsphoto.com). The singer, Lights, is constantly using bright vivid colors with everything she does (I mean do you see her hair?) so I knew a picture from her most recent tour would suffice.  Even though I was at this show I was too close (and too busy dancing) to get an action shot like this.

This daily create assignment was actually a lot of fun. For this project, we were asked to try and add ourselves to an old picture so that we could do a “redo” on the original forest gump picture.

This daily create assignment was actually a lot of fun. For this project, we were asked to try and add ourselves to an old picture so that we could do a “redo” on the original forest gump picture.

Doing this project was actually pretty easy and only took about an hour to complete. For starters, I went onto google images to see if I could find some old pictures. I came across a lot of weird old pictures and nothing seemed like it would work for this project. Then I completed another google search and looked at old family pictures. This was when I came across this old family photo and decided, “hey let me photo bomb this one!”

Adding myself to the old family photo was easy. First, I went onto Microsoft Word and found a picture of myself that I knew would work. I used the background removal tool so that I could add it to this picture. After the background was removed, I then added the old family photo and clicked the “send to back” button. After that I was able to add myself to the photo by moving it around.

Finally, since this old family photo was black and white, I decided that I needed to change that. Therefore, I went onto the different color options for photos until my photo blended in with the original photo.

Think I could be a part of their family?

Remix Guinness Book of World Records

Let me start off by saying that this project was a lot of work but it was SO much fun! For my remix, I decided to take an article about the worlds smallest police dog and use my hedgehog to turn into the worlds smallest police hedgehog.

Here is the link for the original post:

Smallest Police Dog

And Here is the link for my remix:

Smallest Police Hedgehog

This was a pretty easy assignment once you figured out what you were doing. It was a lot of plug and play and figuring out how to get things to work. For me, I took this project is bunch of different ways (I will admit that I probably made it harder on myself).

The first step I took in order to do this project was creating the picture of Daphnie the hedgehog. In order to do this, I played around with different things on word. Basically I kept adding things to the document until it came out looking the way I wanted it to. After that, I used the snipping tool and saved it to my computer. This then allowed me to upload the image to Flickr which became my best friend when adding pictures to the website. I did the same thing when adding the picture of my hedgehog and the police car to the website.

After making the photos and adding everything to Flickr, I then installed X-Ray goggles to my laptop. Once that was complete, I then went back to the original post (smallest police dog) and started to play around. I will say that I am very excited that I learned different things on Code Academy or else I am not sure I could do this assignment.

Once on the website it was basically plug and play. I was able to edit the text that I wanted to. Then I added the codes from the pictures off Flickr which made things a lot easier.

This assignment overall took me a few hours because it took some time to figure out what direction I wanted to go in and how to get things in the places that I wanted them. I would use X-Ray Goggles again. While it was a bit challenging, I had a lot of fun doing it!

On April 29, 2017, I participated in the People’s Climate March in Washington, DC. This is the sign that I carried around, which says “just because you can’t do EVERYTHING does not mean you shouldn’t do ANYTHING.” This is one of my favorite quotes because it inspires me. Studying environmental issues can be extremely discouraging. Sometimes it can feel like no matter what you do, you’ll never be able to do enough. I often start to feel this way and start to get overwhelmed. It is this quote that reminds me that every little action will make a difference. If everyone thinks that they can’t do anything, then nothing would get done.

For this assignment, we had to turn a GIF into a reverse GIF, which is called a FIG.  This seemed like an interesting way to change the outcome of a short clip.

I first went on giphy.com to find an already made GIF. I found the clip here. Finding a GIF was a lot more difficult than I anticipated. There are so many choices to pick from. However, the search had to be somewhat specific because all of these GIFs are either already made with wording, or they’re made without a lot dramatics, especially when put in reverse order. At first, I spent some time looking up television shows that I enjoy and that have some fun dramatics, but when I put them in reverse order, they didn’t come out the way I wanted them to.

I decided to go with the penguins because the original clip was cute. A penguin on top of a soccer ball is pretty interesting. Then he gets knocked down. The reverse came out pretty nice. In order to make it a FIG, I researched, “How to reverse a GIF” on Google. It brought me to ezgif.com, which was extremely easy to work with. All I had to do was insert the URL from the original GIF and press ‘submit.’ When I did this, I also slowed down the rate of the newly made FIG for it to be readable. Once I got it to the speed I wanted, I hit the ‘save’ button and it downloaded right to my computer. I was then able to upload it to my blog!
