A friend recently asked if anyone they know has some photoshop skills. Well, being one very bored person that’s still possibly one of the best image editors out there you might know, I wanted this, for my sanity. The idea is to have two different images, one where the water is red, the other with the ink. That was too easy for my comfort.
This is how I see the world
A friend asked me too do a photoshop for him. And timing worked out since I can actually do something again. The whole idea was to place his, and his girlfriend’s head over the couple, and the loaf of garlic bread over the kid.
When I started editing it I thought to myself “I can’t do this. I need new photos of them, or advanced knowledge of a 3D program.” Turned out he just wanted a simple cut and paste job. But because it’s me I didn’t want it to be too simple. So I did the best I could with what I have, in as little time I did.
During Wondercon, a friend went over as Prince Charming from Cinderella, and had an idea for a photo. The idea was to have a line of Disney princesses waiting to see if the glass slipper fit on them. I wasn’t there to see this happen, because if I knew this was going to, I so would have got this shot.
But I digress. There was a problem with the photo. The Cinderella was in front, kind of killing the joke. And there was two other people in the background that didn’t need to be there. So he asked if someone can do a little photoshop, take the people in back out, and also remove the Cinderella in front. I just moved her further back in the line because I felt it didn’t seem fair to be completely taking her out of the image.
Sometimes I feel as if I’m a bit rusty, then when I do something again my reaction always seems to be, “nope, I’m still dangerous with this program.”
If you’ve seen the White House Correspondents Dinner, or at least clips of it from Saturday night you might have noticed a certain comedian go up on stage. Some people became offended by jokes she made about how Sarah Sanders looks, only to find, she didn’t. Personally I would say she was complimenting her make up work, while also talking about how she lies so often. Or at least I believe Wolf was complimenting her, or maybe it was sarcasm. Then the outrage from a number of people defending Sanders who seem to have very short memories. I also wonder, how is it that entertainers, specially those who make jokes, should be put to a higher standard then those who are supposed to represent us? Including one who has encouraged violence.
I remember as I kid learning about drugs in school, what they do to a person, and how it effects others you know. Well, never did anything but in a way also feel lied to. From what I understand some effects are exaggerated, and the bigger problem is more the addiction. But there is another problem I would of liked to of been addressed when it comes to such a thing, that some people will take advantage of and you’ll just end up trading one addiction for another. Thus creating a really disturbing new behavior.
I’ve been seeing stories about this for awhile, and never really noticed a problem. I’ve also seen comments from other people talking about assaulting a transgender person and one involving a cop bragging about it. But as much as some people cry out about one group of people making people feel violated, they completely forget about another that is more likely to.
During the Chinese New Year parade saturday. I swear, almost every parade I’ve been in or seen around LA has some people with their signs. Last time I completely wiped what was on a persons sign and added my own text insulting them was at comic con last year and decided to do so again here. I think I’ll start doing this for now on and hope it spreads far enough to where the person in the photo will eventually see it.
