ds105 Tutorial Assignment
In this assignment, I chose “Historical Selfies” from the list of Visual Assignments.
First, I decided which program I could easily access to complete this assignment most efficiently, and
I chose Paint.
Once I chose to use Paint, I downloaded two pictures:
This blank selfie template was downloaded from the ds106 website:
Next, I chose my historical event. I decided to find an image representative of Rosa Parks and her movement for civil rights in 1955, when she refused to give up her seat on the bus.
I searched her name on Google Images, and found this picture:
Next, I created a new file in Paint and opened the image of the selfie template.
Then, I pasted the Google Image of Rosa Parks on top of the blank selfie template.
I used the crop button to re-size the dimensions of the Google Image to fit inside the selfie template.
After that, I erased the “likes” and “screename” and replaced it with this text:
“4,000,000,000 likes” and “rosaparks1955” and “#civilrights” and “#freedomofspeech”
Finally, I saved the picture as a jpeg:
Then, after it saved, I had my finished project!
