For my first assignment of the week I chose to create an old western most wanted poster worth three and a half stars. In the description of the assignment it provides a link to a list of the most wanted individuals of the old west. After selecting Butch Cassidy, I investigated how some other students had previously completed the assignments. There is an excellent tutorial on how to complete the assignment that can be found at http://abigailodell.com/assignments/design/bad-girls-do-it-well/ . I had never used GIMP before so I downloaded the open source image editing software. From there I watched about 30 min of tutorials just to complete such a basic assignment. I have never worked with Photoshop or any other image editing software so there was definitely a learning curve for me! Here is what I ended up with:
I followed nearly the same process as was in the tutorial. I went to Freeimages.com and created an account. I then downloaded the wanted poster and imported it into GIMP. From there I found a picture of Butch Cassidy and layered it on top of the wanted poster. I then cut it out and merged the two layers together. I then added a third layer for text and this is what I ended up with!
