My Way of Posting

You might have noticed that many of my articles are filled with  animated graphics. I know it might not seem profesional or you’ll say it is very childish but that is me.48 I might be 27 years old, but I still have that little child spirit in me. I really love to embellish my articles with dividers, floatters, animated pictures ect… why?

Actually it dates back from the time I was 16 years old. It was the starting point when I got interested in picture editing and learnt about web designing (not advanced web designing but just what was essential for me to know). The three softwares that were my companions were Corel Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Photoshop and Animation Shop.

I had awesome skills in photomanipulation – basically it is when you edit a picture into a desired one. Besides, I also created animated gifs. For me art was a way to exteriorize my thoughts, to let out my emotions or to convey a message.Below is an example of photomanipulation:


I mainly edited pictures with human beings as being the point of attraction. However once I learnt that Islam forbids drawing beings with souls, I stopped doing that. I am thinking of designing again but this time I will focus on nature, landscapes ect… and graphics that bloggers like to use while posting in sh Allah (if God wills).



My Artwork

salamToday I would like to let you know about one of my favorite hobbies which is pictures editing. I use Adobe Photoshop for this purpose. Before I used to include people and animals in my art work but since the day I learnt that in Islam it is forbidden to represent living beings, I slowly eradicated them and focused on designing landscapes.

In sh Allah, I will show you some of my works in further posts, because if I put all in a single post, the magic will be gone lol.

So here is a landscape I designed by combining two pictures.

Below, you can see one of the original pictures that I used to create the above landscape.

I hope you like my work, in sh Allah, I will share the other ones with you. Till then may Allah keep you in the best of health and imaan. Asalam Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu✧˖° © Fateema Abdullah
