This week in Art, we learned how to use the program Photoshop. I have used this a couple of times before, but not in great detail. We watched videos detailing the different functions and settings in Photoshop, and we created a morphed image using that knowledge. I thought the final products were really cool because angry, vicious pancakes or a lady with a frog tongue are totally unexpected! I was glad to have the videos with step by step instructions because I would've been lost without them! I am a person who needs directions to do something, so I found myself rewinding and re-watching a lot. There were times when I got frustrated with the program though. At one point, I was not in the right layer and it wasn't working out. But I especially felt extreme distaste for the polygon lasso tool because it stuck to every spot on the screen that I clicked on and I couldn't figure out how to get it to deselect unless I went to the internet window and then went back and canceled it. It was so strange and annoying, and I was told you had to reconnect the ends to deselect it. I personally think that is crazy because I wanted to deselect without have to click a bunch, but I muddled through. Since I had to go back to the video so much, I ended up working pretty slowly. But I am happy with the results and I think they are so funny to look at. I'm going to send my brother a picture of angry pancakes--I'm sure he'll never look at breakfast the same way again!
