Patty Pioneers (1st Assignment of CIS DS106)

26 Jan

This is my first assignment Patty Pioneers.
Instruction says “Simply put, this assignment involves editing a picture of any Computer Pioneer so that it looks like they are eating/about to eat/holding a burger or similar types of fast food.
In this picture, You can see Steve Jobs is holding the ‘APPLE’ pie.  and Don’t you think ‘pie’ and ‘pi’ oneer sounds similar?

Anyway, I got 2 pictures from the internet.

Actually I am using 2 software, GIMP and Az Painter2.
First, open the picture of Apple pie on Az Painter2 and cut off the white background because background must to be clear and save the picture as PNG file.
Second, open the picture of Steve Jobs and apple pie on GIMP (apple pie’s picture must to be on the top of layers).
and move the picture of apple pie. You can revolve, diminish, and perspective the picture of apple pie.
After that, put the word and that’s it.


An Introduction before assignments.

23 Jan

I just realized that I haven’t introduced myself, so let me introduce my self before ds106.

I’m Ren. I’m 20 years old and I have been using the internet for 9 years.
I have lived in Japan for 20 years and I have never studied in abroad countries, so if my English does not sound academic, sorry about that.

I’m using the internet everyday. I’m using facebook, twitter, google mail etc…
Actually it is very comfortable, I can search whatever I want when I need it and I can talk with my friends anytime by social networking services.  Now, the internet is really common. Most of the people have their own computer and i phone(or android), so they can easily use the internet.
When I was child, computer was a bit expensive and phone did not have the internet services, so I didn’t think the internet become so fundamental tool.

As we did in the classroom, we can share an information and idea on the internet and we can make an artistic pictures by computer. That’s amazing.
I hope the internet technology will be improved more and it helps people.

Thank you for reading, I’ll be back  soon for ds106 assignments.
