    The easiest app to use was Giphy cam. It was the most user friendly but didn’t produce the most in depth images. My favorite and the most difficult and non user friendly was Glitche. I found that using the two apps in tandem as we discussed in class yields even more fun images. ImgPlay was an easy enough app to use for creating GIFS. I also played around with Back Eraser which is helpful for creating images that we can eventually layer. Its a bit difficult at first but they offer a tutorial which is helpful in walking you through the process.

    I really have been drawn to keep going back to Glitche. I am enjoy abstracting old videos I have and also layering again and again with different effects, taking away parts of the image to show the other layers. Just a tad addicting! hah I am wondering how we are going to combine different images together.. such as a landscape with an image creating movement. I’m guessing that is using different software?

    I found Giphy Cam to be user friendly, and was able to use this App to share on Instagram via phone. Looking at the artist works, and as a novice in New Media the thought of using an application to create via cell phone seemed quite intimidating. So far, I found it to be quite fun to experiment with, and incorporate with technology. I am unsure whether I prefer to add to my artwork using alternative media, or continue on my traditional methods.
    It is interesting to view advertisements and other media arts in new light because I can understand better how it is created. The immediate results, ability to edit, erase are convenient, and mobility are amazing.

    I am having a lot of fun using Glitche, img play and giphy cam. I really like using a mix of these apps and combining different effects with old artwork and designs I have created in the past. It is so much fun to make new and different projects out of previous existing projects I have created. I want to try more apps but for right now it is a lot of fun getting to know the ins and outs of these three apps.
