In this assignment, you will create a program which lets users play with an image using mouse clicks. Your program will display the image of your choice. When users click on the image, a shape will appear on it which is the same color as the pixel the user clicked on. That shape will shrink over time. New mouse clicks will lead to additional shapes appearing (i.e., there may be multiple shapes visible at the same time, in different sizes). When the user types "s", the program will save the current frame.
You may proceed in any way that you wish to accomplish the requirements of this assignment. One way to do this assignment is as follows (get each step working and debugged before moving on to the next):
For this assignment, please submit a zipped sketch folder which includes both your processing file and the image(s) you are using.
A+ - All required elements included, plus an interesting and creative approach to fulfilling the assignment requirements.
A - All required elements included and functioning correctly. Mouse clicks cause a clear and correctly patterned shape to appear. Code is clean, clear and well-documented.
B - Competent response to the assignment showing overall mastery of course material, with some small errors that do not greatly affect the quality of the assignment. For example, the code may be somewhat baroque (too complex for what it does), the code only works for a limited but non-trivial number of mouse clicks, or the code may be formatted incorrectly.
C - Some bigger errors, or a larger collection of smaller errors, but with potential to develop into a competent response. For example, the code may not run, but with a few small syntactical fixes would properly fulfill the assignment; the code may work but not be comprehensibly written; or the code completely misses on one of the requirements, but still shows some understanding of the unit's material.
D - Serious errors show clear effort, but serious gaps in understanding, such as code that does not run and is not close to being correct, or fulfills only part of a requirement.
F - Little demonstrated effort, or clear effort with no understanding, such as code fragments submitted which are only the start of a response to the assignment.
(Up to 5 points extra credit if the shapes pulse and the pulsing code is written in a clean and elegant manner.)
