Lately I’ve been thinking about finding a better introduction picture to use in my courses. I wanted to find one that shows some of the things I hold dear to me. This picture is at one of my favourite beaches, with my dog, sporting Canucks gear and holing a Timmy’s coffee.
My original picture was at a high resolution and was too large to work with. When I pasted it into WordPress and previewed it, it became distorted. So I used a scaled down picture to work with instead. With my WordPress theme I look a little thinner than I should, but I guess I can live with that. 🙂 The two cropped pictures should come come up as the proper size. I’m leaning towards the one with just me. I’m interested in which picture you guys like better. With dog or without? I used SumoPaint to do this.
Also, I initially misunderstood boundaries in the activity to mean to put a border on the image. I couldn’t figure out how to do this in SumoPaint. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I’ve included this picture of just my dog cropped for the original photo so you can see him in all his glory doing what he loves best. You can also get an Idea of how big the original image would have been to work with.
