For this project, we had to create a short video using our voice thread account. I first had to pick three projects that I was the most proud of in my edublogs account. Then, I had to embed them into flicker and post each individual project on a different video slide and explain what I did in the project using a audio recording. Then, I submitted all of that and put it into my blog post. The voice thread is linked down below.
In this project, I will be creating a circle polyorama out of a picture I found on flickr. A circle polyorama is a panorama basically stretched around itself into a circle global figure. Using photoshop I first cropped the panorama into a 360 degree photo so that each side of the panorama “fit” into each other. Next I opened “image size” and made the height and the length the same on the panorama. Then, I rotated the picture 180 degrees so that it was upside down. After I went to filter -> distortion -> polar coordinates and made sure” regular to polar was checked. Then the round figure was made. After that I used the blur tool to blur out the harsh lines.
In this project I used photoshop to create a picture used off of a panorama I found on flickr. It took me awhile to find the exact right picture so that the picture would work but finally I found exactly the right one. I used Photoshop to create this.
- Better understanding of Adobe Photoshop
- Crop tool (to make it 360 panorama)
- Image size (changed length and width to the same)
- Rotate (rotated 180 degrees)
- Filter (distortion)
- Blur tool (blurred out any harsh lines)
First product: Panorama
Second product: Import into Photoshop
Third product: follow steps according tutorial
Fourth product: Import into Flickr
Fifth and final product: Make a blog post

This is a good resource because it is off of a reliable channel and has a lot of views on YouTube. Plus, the fact that it actually worked when I tried it is also a good sign too.
Here above is the final product.
What I Learned:
In this project I learned how to create a fun picture that you wouldn’t see in real life. I used my new and prior knowledge to create something great. I had a hard time finding a picture that would make itself into a global shape without looking off, but in the end after a lot of research I finally found a good photo that would work. Even though it’s not perfect, it definitely shows the effort that I put into the project.
