Are We There Yet?

Take an existing image and change the concept in where you are at and what you are doing. (3 Stars)

Obviously I am flying away from all of my responsibilities and stress in this picture, but ended up a little bit further away from Orientation than I was meaning to.  The picture of me is from my first year as an Orientation Leader having fun in spite of how exhausting the experience is.  This is one of my favorite picture I took over that summer and I’m excited that I could alter it to make it even more interesting.

I downloaded the photograph of me holding the balloons from Facebook in order to utilize it for this assignment.


I’m on a work computer and cannot download any special software onto the desktop so I uploaded the photograph to ClippingMagic.com to remove the background.

On Clipping Magic you mark the foreground with green and the background with red to distinguish them from one another.

Once I was happy with the background removal I downloaded the edited photograph onto my desktop.

I also downloaded an galaxy image from the internet.


Once I had all the pieces, I uploaded the galaxy into Canva.com and resized it to my liking.

I then uploaded the picture of me holding the balloons and placed it over the galaxy.
