Give me those chips!

Background

To start off my spubble for #VisualAssignment190 I first looked through my own images until I came across one that I thought was funny on it’s own but would be even funnier with a text bubble. For this I decided on a screenshot I had taken of my boyfriend while on Skype of him making a funny face with 2 Pringles in his mouth while his german shepherd Diamond is sitting beside him looking at him longingly. I always see funny pictures of dogs with their owners so I felt like this gave me a lot to work with.

Process

Creating my spubble started with a simple Google search. I searched “how to add speech bubble to photo” and clicked on the first result which was for www.lunapic.com

After clicking the website link I was brought to a page showing a variety of speech bubbles. I clicked the ‘cloud r’ one because I thought that bubble would fit best with the photo I chose.

Next I clicked ‘choose file’ and clicked the photo I wanted from my computer and then pressed ‘upload now’.

After it was uploaded it takes you to the next page where I adjusted the size of my speech bubble by dragging the corners and moving it into place then pressed ‘apply’.Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 7.14.04 PM

It then takes you to the next page with the completed image. On the lefthand side of the website there are other ways to edit photos so this is how I will be adding the text into the bubble by clicking the ‘T” which is the second option on the left.

On the next page it gives the option to change the text size, color, font, and other options. Here I changed the font size to 9 and the color to black by clicking ‘pick’ and then the top left color. I then clicked ‘apply text’ which by clicking the text in the image allows you to move it into position.

After this you press ‘save’ at the bottom of the page and the image is done.

This is my finished spubble. I decided to add the text “What big lips you have..” in a way to spoof the Red Riding Hood tale where she says to the wolf “Grandma, what big teeth you have.” I thought this was fitting since it is a human looking funny and a dog being confused.
