So I dabbled a bit more in the tech world for my e-Portfolio. I wanted to create a cover photo for my website where my name would appear over an image of the Capitol. Conceptually it was a great plan. Then I tried to execute it and things got a little dicey.
Of course the first thing I do is google “draw on picture” because that is definitely in high tech terms. And this website comes up:
All I had to do was insert my picture and draw away. Seemed easy enough. I headed over to Creative Commons and found the perfect image, screen shotted it (command+4 is my jam, no lie) and then headed over to the website to work my “draw on picture” magic. It was harder than anticipated.
My internet was faulty, so the image kept getting regenerated and all of my beautiful drawing would go to waste. Eventually (like hours later, no joke) I got it to load and I ended up with an image that was too long for me to screenshot in one frame. Ugh. The best thing for me at that point was to take a screen shot of the “Katie” and the “Koziara” portions separately…
…and then insert them both into another program where I shrunk them down to scale and then took a screenshot of them side by side.
Is it a little bit sloppy and are the last letters a little bit squished? Sure. But I’m pretty excited that I was able to troubleshoot this and figure a way to make the idea in my head play out online.
Take that, #techchallenge!
