For the assignment I can do on my own I chose making an animated GIF- get off my porch because it’s a good way to work on my editing skills. As I was working on it I found myself having trouble figuring out how to add an image to a GIF. I felt like this would be something we’d start to work on in class so it would be good to learn now.
In my research, I found a website called kapwing.com
that offered the tools for my project.
So I went through the process of finding my image and uploading it.
Then the somewhat tricky part was adding the GIF process but, I figured it out pretty easily. In a few short steps I was finished and I learned a quick new skill that as I continue to work on will allow me to create more elaborate projects.
However, my finished project is supposed to represent the disappointment
of watching the NBA put more of a focus on theatrics and drama than the actual skill of the players.
I’m sure this will be part of what I’ll have to learn, which would help me since I know little to nothing about how to code. The assignment page offered a site to help, but I was still a little confused.
Getting a basic grasp of such programs like Java and Linux would help, but I’m sure it’ll take time to get the hang of it. In the future, I hope to be able to code animated and possibly interactive media.
