CLick ME! to see more photos about Online Identity photos 🙂
In some way this game called Bitizen is one of my inspiration.
Cited from tinytowerwiki.com:
Bitizens are purely two dimensional beings, standing about 16 or 17 pixels high on average, though posts on Bitbook mention characters 20 pixels tall.
Each Bitizen has a unique appearance derived from a large set of possible skin colors, hair colors, clothing colors, and accessories. Each Bitizen that lives in the tower can be redressed at will through their character panel for free. Though their skin and hair colors will remain, hair styles and all of their clothes and accessories will be re-randomized. Bitizens can be further customized with the use of purchasablecostumes, for the price of a small handful of Tower Bux. Both these functions are useful for Color Coding.
There is even a tute to male your own Bitizen! http://brandontreb.com/Pixel-Art-Character-Tutorial-Create-A-Bitizen/
GIF! Graphic Interchange Format image file become expand today, introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability (Wikipedia, GIF 2012). Check out this website http://gifctrl.com/rh and http://www.gif.tv/#/giftv-1745-horsechew it’s all about GIF images.
I copy paste it from this website http://www.olsenhome.com/gif/ that tells the fact bout GIF:
|The GIF graphics file format was invented by CompuServe in 1987. In the years since, a debate has been raging as to the correct way to pronounce “GIF”: like “jif” as in the peanut butter, or with a hard ‘g’ as in “gift” as a majority of Mac users seem to prefer. With this page I intend to clear this up once and for all…It’s pronounced like “jif”. Period. The end. That’s final. End of story.You disagree? Hey, I’m just quoting the inventors of the format. Here’s the evidence:
I found hilarious animated gif about: WAY back in 2008 an artist named Omar Noory came up with the following animated gif
Then I learned how to create a GIF file through Adobe Photoshop from this website http://creativetechs.com/tipsblog/build-animated-gifs-in-photoshop/, these guys make it very simple and practical explanation. Check it out!
A Simple Example
For a quick hands-on tutorial on creating animated GIFs in Adobe Photoshop, we’ll walk you through creating the following animation:
This simple animation combines the two most common animation techniques in Photoshop: Turning layers off and on, and using the Tween command to animate the movement of an object on a layer.
Step 1: Set up your layers.
The first step in creating any animation in Photoshop is to build a layered Photoshop file with all the elements you plan to animate. Our example document has 7 layers containing the text for our countdown, and layers for the rocket and flame.
You can download our example Photoshop file here:
Step 2: Create Animation Frames with Layer Visibility.
Chose Windows > Animation to show Photoshop’s animation palette.
On the first frame, turn off visibility for all layers you do not want visible at the start of your animation. Then add one frame at a time, and turn on the layers you want visible for each step in the animation.
Changing layer visibility one frame at a time is a classic Photoshop animation technique that covers a wide variety of needs.
In our example, continue this pattern to reveal the countdown and the flame at the bottom of our rocket.
Step 3: Create Animation Frames using Tween.
Now that the countdown is complete, we need to create the illusion that our rocket ship is taking off. Add one more frame, and this time select the group called “Rocket” in layers and move your rocket off the top of your image window.
Then choose “Tween…” from the Animation palette’s pop-out menu.
Set how many frames to add, and Photoshop spreads the movement of your layer across those extra frames.
Step 4: Adjust your Timing.
Finally, go back through and adjust the delay for each frame of your animation. That time is shown in seconds below each frame.
Tip: You can hold down the Shift-key to select a range of frames (such as the 9 frames we added for the rocket’s takeoff) and change them together.
Step 5: Export the Animated GIF.
Finally, to export your animated GIF choose:
In Photoshop CS3: File > Save For Web & Devices…
In Earlier Photoshops: File > Save For Web…
Make sure the image type is set to GIF, feel free to experiment with some of the other options, and save your file.
To test your resulting animated GIF, drag the file onto you web browser.

Mark is a talented and funny guy, who generously allowed us to butcher his creation for this tip. Check out Mark’s site, and sign up for his daily email Stickman comic.
This blog also post GIF images http://hypothete.blogspot.com.au/2010_12_01_archive.html
Sooooooo… I am so excited to create the picture blog for my own site. For this site, I created the picture myself. I choose the color maroon as its my favorite color and the font is because its looks modernize and elegant. It intended to repeated like that to make it boundless and in the end i put my online name as karinArt 😀
Cited from Wikipedia, “Web 2.0 is a concept that takes the network as a platform for information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the Internet or World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites, hosted services, web applications, mashups and folksonomies. The term is closely associated with Tim O’Reilly because of the O’Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference which was held in late 2004. Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specification, but rather to cumulative changes in the ways software developers and end-users use the Web. Whether Web 2.0 is substantively different from prior web technologies has been challenged by World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee, who describes the term as jargon. His vision of the Web is “a collaborative medium, a place where we [can] all meet and read and write”.“
