week four

shocking messages

Using Photoshop or Gimp, combine at least two images (you may also use text) to create a shocking message. 

For this visual assignment, I had to create a powerful message by combining two pictures using Gimp. I chose to combine a picture of a clean ocean with one polluted with trash. The striking difference, along with the question, is a call to action to clean up the massive amounts of trash in our oceans. Pollution is killing the sea animals and creating a hazardous environment due to humans disposing waste wrong.

To complete this assignment, I had to download Gimp on my laptop. I have never used any type of photoshop before, so navigating the site was incredibly difficult. Overall, it took me about and hour and a half. Hopefully the next time I need to use Gimp I will be more familiar with it.
