Image Manipulation

This is the before shot..

This is the edited image..

Image manipulation is a lot of fun and using an online resource such as Picnik makes it not only a painless process, but when linking an account with Flickr, the resource base is endless.

Students could use this resource to find pictures that relate to an area of interest, or upload their own (with appropriate permission in place, and perhaps location or non-personal shots rather than personal photos). Making alterations to the pics gives students ownership, and they could then use these photos to create a photostory. To truly make this an active learning experience students could display their photostories during Parade, or they could be gathered together and used as a teaching resource within the topic area they have chosen.
