Alright what’s up YouTube, it is TechSupportGoneBad. And I thought I should make this tutorial in honor of Barack Obama winning the election.
So, he’s about to be our new president so this one is for him. Alright so, before I get started on the actual tutorial, if you guys want to listen to the rest of the song, it is the Obama Obama “A Milli” Remake. So, if you want to listen to the rest of it, the link to this video will be in the video description.
Okay so, let’s get started with this tutorial. Alright so, I don’t know if you guys have seen this picture of Barack Obama but it is a very famous one. So, I try to recreate it and this is what I got. First, I tried to recreate it in photo shops so bear in mind that I did not use any tutorials for this. It was just what I could do and see what I could make so I got the shadows down right but I didn’t get pictures or the colors down right so it wasn’t good enough to make a tutorial on it.
So, I did a little bit of research and I found this website. It’s a great website called Obamicon.Me, that’s O-B-A-M-I-C-O-N.M-E. So, what it is, is a Obama icon generator which will take your picture and generate it to look like this in the end. Alright so before you get started on creating your own Obamicon, you have to register for a username so go ahead and do that. And then once you’re signed in, before you actually click Create, scroll down for a second and take a look at the top rated Obamicons.
There is some really cool, funny, just a lot of great Obamicons and one of them that is one of my favorites is this one right here of George W. Bush. It’s a picture of George w. Bush and then right here it just says Fail, yup. So, that one is pretty funny. I found it funny and well yeah so after you took a look at the top rated Obamicons, let’s click Create and get started.
So, I’ll just click Create right there and this page will pop up. And it’s going to ask you if you want to use a web cam or upload a photo. In this case, I’m going to be uploading photo. And then it’s going to say, Upload a Photo for your Obamicon supported formats JPEG, GIF and PNG and the size limit is 4MB.
Just click Upload Photo and choose the photo that you want. Let’s do this funny for a second here. Let’s do this one. It’s going to say Uploading Photo, just give it a second to upload. And there we have it.
Now, as you can see, this is way too small for the full image so I'm going to press on the plus sign for the zoom to make it fit the screen so give me a second to do that. And while I'm doing it, go ahead and do it on your own or do it for your own.
Okay so that looks pretty good. Now, once you have it to where you want it, you want to look right below the zoom spot and it’s going to say Adjust the Color Balance. Now, this is where it gets customize, you can choose which spots you want, dark blue, red, light blue or white. So, let’s go ahead and do that.
And make this a little less. And okay that looks pretty good to me and there you have it. Now, this is the image. Now, the last thing you could do is customize down here where it says Hope. Now, there are a couple of different options that it gives you. You could change it to Hope, Progress, Change, President, Obamicon.Me, or you could customize in and put a custom text right there. So, I'm going to click on customize and change the text to TSGB. And there is the final image.
And so once you’re done with the final image and you're satisfied with the way it looks, click onto Take Snapshot and then look to your right and it’s going to take a snapshot of the image that you just created and then you want to click on Save and Submit. And then agree to the terms and conditions as usual. And at this point, if you don’t have an account yet, it’s going to force you to make your account. If you do, it’s going to take you to your profile where it shows all your different things that you have made.
So, if you want to download this to your website, or to your computer, if you want to download this to your computer, just hover over it and click download. But there are many other things you could do with this also. You could order a shirt, a gift like posters, shirt stamps, mouse pads, greeting cards, coffee cups, you could just make your own item with that picture or you could share it and it gives you a couple of different options to share. But in this case, you just want to click Download, click Save File, press OK, and there you have it, your own Obamicon saved through your computer and you could use this in any way that you want.
