 Digital Photography


YouTube plugin error



Putting songs and video together in a pod cast can be a very powerful way to get a message across.


First we are going to learn a little bit about digital photography



1. Open up MS Word


2. From the menu choose INSERT--> picture-->from-->file


3. Locate the picture you want


4. Now you can use the picture tool bar to add effects- we will practice this in class


5. Our next step is to insert a chart into MS Word.


6. You can get the chart from tool bar.


7. After we have enlarged the chart we will be using the same picture in 6 boxes using a different

effect on each picture. Isn't it amazing to see how different the same picture can look using special effects?




Where to locate free pictures!


YOU MAY ONLY Use the following sites to gather photo's









Do not use google images or tag galaxy for in school searches.  You may only use Google Image Search when I have presearched  the allowed Keyword. Then sand only then may you searxh using only the keywords I provide!







***You may no longer use tag galaxy nor Google images- Apparently there have been some inappripriate pictures discovered at home-so we will be blocking the sites.***





Second we will use Ms Photo editor to crop, resize and change


our pictures.
