Picasa 3 Software - Your Total Photo Solution!

Monday, March 31st 2014 at 3:30-5:30pm

CORE Annex 33299 Robertson Ave Abbotsford, BC V2S 1Z3 Canada

Learn to use Picasa to organize and manage photos for projects and reports, edit photos, share photos of special events, create movies/slideshows.

Elementary. Take pictures of student work, presentations, or field trips throughout the year and quickly turn them into a slideshow that you can play at Open House or during parent conferences.

Middle. Students can create a historical photo album by taking pictures of themselves in historical costumes and settings. Then apply sepia tones or black & white effects to make them look like old photos and print them out.

Secondary. Journalism students can keep all photos for each edition of their newspaper or magazine in one location on their classroom PC, adding descriptions and captions that make them easy to find, re-use, and share.
