During our first workshop we were introduced to some of the programs that we will be using throughout the course and some of the basics. We looked and Adobe Photoshop, Camera Raw and Adobe Bridge. We were given a set of basic pictures and were taught about masking images and other simple things like that. I had previous knowledge of Photoshop from college so I decided to mess around with one of the images and you can see what I did below.
In another of the workshops we went over some of the basics in Processing, which gave us a good introduction to coding with Java. During the workshop we were set the task to create a program that creates random circles of different sizes whenever you clicked the mouse.
I managed to figure out how to do it using floats and the ‘random’ command so I decided to try to make it look a bit more interesting by making the circles random different colours whenever the mouse was clicked aswell, below you can see some screenshots of the code when it was running and how the circles are all in random positions and are random colours and sizes.
I really enjoyed using processing and it was very satisfying once I figured out how to get the code to work properly and make it do exactly what I wanted it to do whenever I clicked the mouse button.
