Making my header was not easy. It took me a while to figure out what pictures I wanted exactly to be used for it and why. When I decided on the major background picture, which was a simple street view of New York City, I had to decide on the other two pictures. I decided on the street view of New York City, because it was a nice, calm, and cool. I decided to make a header with my blog’s theme, dogs! I gathered two pictures of two dogs, a Shiba Inu and a pug, those are two of my favorite dogs. I wanted the header to be them walking down the streets of New York City. I opened up Adobe Photoshop and made the edits.
I did not have much struggle with this, because I have worked with photoshop before. I’ve edited photos and made pictures before so this was a breeze. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted, which was probably the most difficult part for me. For my fraternity, I sometimes work with making the flyers, designing and editing them. This was similar to that, so it came very naturally to me when I was working on the header. Typically, the hardest part for me is always coming up with an idea, so that usually take a long time for me.
I love doing these photoshop edits, so I do hope to be doing more of these later on in my life, maybe partly as a graphic designer or helping out. I haven’t really thought about how I would apply these to my life fully.
