Digital Images

On Monday we learned how to work with different ways of attaining images. We then manipulated the images in PhotoShop Elements. I was surprised by how easy it was to do this! I have no experience with PhotoShop but found it much easier to use than the iphoto application on my Macbook. I would be interested in using this software in the future for presentations, posters and other visual displays.

Today we went back over wikis and blogger. I uploaded a photo to our class wiki page with some help. The more I do the more I realize that most technology publishers are very similar. You do a lot of the same functions but the commands may have slightly different names or locations.

In the beginning...

I was terribly confused; nearly computer illiterate if you will. I have always avoided technology classes for fear of failure and mass confusion. So far, no failure and only minor confusion. PBWiki and I have an inconsistent relationship at this point. I hope that one day we will fully understand one another and have a less stressful relationship. I realized that I have blogged before (um in middle school if that counts), but a friend set everything up for me. So far blogger is really easy to use, and I am determined to understand wikis soon.
