Photoshop generated version. Collage version. Homemade photoshop version.
The most frustrating thing about this project to me was the photoshop generated part. Photoshop would not put more than 3 or 4 images together at once. The most exciting part was the homemade photoshop version because it allowed us to take our own photos and shape and mold them into a perfect collage. I think our homemade photo shop version is our best because we changed the size and shapes of the image creating a more diverse and well formed collage. Photoshop was definitely not able to make the same decisions that we were. Hockney feels that photoshop does not express movement well and is incapable of projecting a good image. He is right in this case because our photoshop generated image is poorly crafted compared to both of our other collages. I believe that photoshop is a tool for creation as a brush is a tool for painting. The user is making the art but photoshop just assists. I still believe these creations are art, just simply in a different form.
