Shrinking Images and More

Maybe you spent much of last week’s spring break taking pictures or as you near the end of the school year, you realize you have great pictures of classroom activities. Time to consider how you’ll share those images.

Image files take up a lot of space . . . on your H drive, on your web page, in an email message. Although you might need greater resolution for printing a file, a low resolution (72/75 dpi) will work just fine for sharing on the web or via email. Adobe Photoshop Elements makes it easy to convert one file or a whole folder full of files in a short time. Here’s how to do it. If you’d like to know more about resolution and megapixels, check out How Stuff Works.

If you’re looking for general information on using images in Office, check this file on using images. It includes how to insert, crop, add frames and more.

Finally, if you’re looking for a convenient way to share images with students, check out our locally hosted Gallery. The Gallery is closed to those outside the district. If you create an album of your own, it may be restricted to your students via password. One nice feature of the Gallery is that students or you can add comments to images. Contact Kim Bannigan if you’re interested.
