It’s Time to Listen!

This is another image in the silhouette series where the “app up” of the image makes it even better (see “App Up Your Tina” for the full story). This time, I used Photoshop to “app up” the image into a GIF form.

I hope you like it. It shows me using some of my special powers to get them to listen to a special message. Like when I made that savvy guy stop using the mean word for months and months. It was The Rumble which was the final emphasis, but what was unseen at the time was all the amount of special time I spent helping him to understand while he was sleeping. (Of course, he didn’t see me when he was sleeping, and I used my ninja powers, too.) Some times, a lot of effort on your part pays off in the end of it.

And, as another bonus for you, here is a Cubomaniac version of my Cubomaniac Eyes picture from a couple days ago that I put into my True Friend John’s (@johnjohnstonCubomaniacal GIF web app that he made today.

Plus, you can see here how my True Friend Bill (@byzantiumbooks) put my picture back together again, just like a good egg should.

So that was fun stuff for a fun day!

Well, bye!

App Up Your Tina

So The Daily Create number tdc727 said to take a silhouette and make it fancy! Like using an app to “app it up” so that it was more special.

This was a fun create for me because my silhouette is very distinctive (I think so) and so it was easy to work with to make it even more better by using an app on it.  The app that I used is an app that was already on my phone called FX Photo Studio, and I used some different settings to make different versions of my picture that each told a different story.

So my first, original picture that I used for all the others was this one:

“Saying Goodnight” by iamtalkytina, on Flickr

Next, I made it blurry like maybe if they were falling asleep or drowsy when I came to the door to say goodnight.

Then, I  made one where it was like I was in an old Noir Film and I was a Fatal Femme coming late in the dark of night.

In another one, it was like I was making the house warmer for them.  This one is my favourite.

In another one, it was like I was making it REALLY warm for them. Plus, in case they didn’t come out of their bedroom or didn’t have any stairs if they slept on the main floor then this would be an option.

Then, I gave them a goodnight kiss.

Then, I made one in case they were dreaming of me coming while they were sleeping.

I hope that you like how I made all these different versions from just one picture and how each one tells a better story because I used the “app it up” idea from The Daily Create.  All of these choices and more are available to you when you use the special app that I did called FX Photo Studio on my iPhone.

It is probably why in movies if you use special effects you can make it more exciting than if you just said in words that they were having a certain feeling because of something. So a picture that had an “app it up” is worth more than just a thousand thousand words. Maybe it is worth two thousand. See?

Well, bye!
