Assignment

This assignment asks you to put together a bucket list collage with at least four different pictures. It is worth 3 1/2 stars (as of time of writing) and is an easy and fun assignment, so I would definitely recommend this one.

To get you started, you will first need to think of at least four different items that are on your bucket list, that you could easily convey with a picture. When I completed this assignment, I talked about skydiving, playing tennis with a pro, going to Australia, and driving a supercar. Once you’ve figured out which items you want to include on your list, it’s time to find the pictures that correlate with your ideas. For my assignment, I went on Google and was easily able to find pictures for each, so this will most likely work for you as well. If you have your own pictures to use instead, even better! Either way, make sure you download the pictures to your desktop so that they will be saved (right click on the picture and ‘save to desktop’).

Next up, is the collage portion of the assignment. I highly recommend you use befunky.com as your collage maker. You’ll start with a layout like this:

 

Each of the nine boxes correlates with a picture. However, you most likely won’t be upload nine different pictures. So, if you wanted to only use four pictures, then you would click on ‘templates’ on the left side of the screen, and scroll down to ‘grid.’

Then, choose which template you want to use. The third row from the top, and on the right is the template that I used to show four different pictures. After you pick your template, each square that you click on will show the option to ‘add photo’.

Simply click ‘add photo’, where it will prompt you to upload an image from your desktop. So, you will just need to find the photos that you saved earlier, and then upload them to the collage. If you don’t like one of the images, or you put it in the wrong order, the ‘trashcan’ icon will delete the picture for you. Once you have all of the images that you want, click on the ‘save’ button on the top of the page, and click ‘computer’ in the drop down menu. This will save the collage to your desktop.

After the collage has been saved, you will just need to upload it to an image hosting service. The assignment calls for it to be uploaded to Flikr, so that is an option. Instead, I just uploaded the image directly to WordPress. However, don’t forget that you need to write something about each image, and why it is on your bucket list AND explain how you went about the process of creating your collage.

Hope this helps and good luck!
