Assignment (Visual) 13: Take a concept, one word, and plug it into Flickr and take the first 50 images and average them using Photoshop or similar program.
I was inspired by a graceful, though fuzzy image of a jellyfish grabbed from a friend’s underwater footage. In my mind’s eye,…

The Average of Lily

Visual Assignment 13— Averaging Concepts using Flickr (3 stars).  This is a really cool way to make an abstract piece of art. The instructions for this assignment called for using the first 50 images produced on a Flickr search to create an “average” image. The end product reminds me of…

This time around, I decided to do a Visual Assignment called Averaging Concepts using Flickr. The assignment was to:

Remembering Places by Color

All of my favorite places have a distinct color palette tied to them in my memory. I remember Lisbon by the sunny yellow of its tram cars and the blue and white of its famous azulejo tiles, while I picture the island of Santorini being simply white buildings against a…

Rainbow Collage

For my last Visual Assignment, I decided to pull out the stops. I anchored down and did some serious bulkr downloading and Picasa creating. If you read my previous posts on averaging collages, you’ll notice I found a rather boring element of uniform “fogginess” in the finished products, with the…

Minecraft Average

Minecraft, a photo by theunwiseman on Flickr.
Via Flickr:
I took the average of over 50 Minecraft screenshots. This is what Picasa gave me.
I particularly like how well the HUD stands out. This almost makes it look like you’re playing the game in some eerie fog.
Again, I thought…

Primary Colors with 50 Flickr Images

First off thanks Timmmmyboy for creating this assignment and the tutorial to go with it. It was great to be walked through a tool I had  never used before in Photoshop. And second thanks to ds106 for always finding ways to exercise your creative side!
I deviated a little from…

An “Average” Day with DS106

averaged composite of colors taken from 50 recent ds106 images on flickr.

For those that have been sending me tweets, e-mails, voicemails, and carrier pigeons trying to figure out what exactly ds106 is……I’m sorry. It really can’t be explained.
That’s not to say I haven’t tried! However, the sheer preponderance…

Averaging Flickr Visual Assignment, the new black

Last semester maybe one or two ds106 participants did Timmmmyboy’s Averaging Flickr Concepts assignment, but this semester it seems to be one of the most popular. One of the reason may very well be Tim Owen’s awesome tutorial. Interesting how the assignment bank will in many ways start to reflect…

Adventure

Adventure, a photo by theunwiseman on Flickr.
The image above is the combination of the first 50 images found when searching for the word “Adventure” on Flickr.
This was a very adventurous exercise. I definitely enjoyed the process more than the end result. I feel like the picture is really…

Bear with me, this is a journey

I have fallen in love with Tim Owens’ Averaging Concepts using Flickr visual assignment. I liked it so much I did it before #ds106 Summer of Oblivion even started.
Then today came Lou McGill’s post Layers, which took the idea to a whole new level. I still aspire to make…

Visual Assignment: Averaging Stories & Rainbows

“Take a concept, one word, and plug it into Flickr and take the first 50 images and average them using Photoshop or similar program.”

stories

rainbow

Essentially, what we are looking at is the Flickr community’s overall concept of what “stories” and “rainbow” means.
I don’t think that sentence properly…

Flickr Average Composition

http://ds106.us/2011/01/10/averaging-concepts-using-flickr/
For this visual assignment, you were to take 50 images from a flickr search and average them all together.  There were step by step instructions for this but not for the version of photoshop I have.  So instead of an easy couple of clicks, it turned into me adjusting…
