Project Description

A Rainy Day Digital Postcard

Upload your "Rainy Day Digital Postcard" to the student gallery!

Do this by clicking "upload photo" > select your animated GIF > and click "Open" 

Your postcard should include at least 2 of the 5 effects we covered in class.

Those effects can be:

  1. Rain particles
  2. Drops on the camera lens
  3. Ripples in the water
  4. Waves in the water
  5. Fog over rolling over the scene
  • Add some text to the postcard to make it your own.
  • Below are the effect settings I used for this project.

I can't wait to see what you come up with, and remember to keep on creating!
