Here are three tools I've learned in BTT...

1. Google Draw

Google Draw is on gmail.com. Google draw is just what it sounds like. It is a helpful tool to create posters using shapes and lines. To use Google Draw, you need to get an account on gmail.com. Once you have and account you can open your drive and click "CREATE." A tab will pop up where you can click "Drawing", and then you can start your Google Draw! Use the link posted on the bottom of the page to help you with the basics of Google Draw! Hope this helped!

2. Rule of Thirds

So what is the rule of thirds? The rule of thirds is when you place the most important object in a picture on the intersecting lines. You are never supposed to center the object in the picture.

Rule of Thirds History

In 1797, a man by the name of John Thomas Smith came up with the idea of the rule of thirds. Smith also started a book called Remarks on Rural Scenery that has the rule of thirds written about in the book. The picture below is a part about the rule of thirds from Smith's book Remarks on Rural Scenery.
Below is a link to a Google Draw on the Rule of Thirds:
