Students will use a photo editor to crop, lighten, darken, sharpen, resize and remove red eye from photos.
Students can use these techniques to improve the photos used in their technology integrated assignments with Powerpoint, slideshows, brochures, posters, movies, websites, etc.
Students use the free photo editor and drawing program Paint.Net for these exercises. Paint.NET works on Windows computers, but there is a Paint.NET clone made for Macs called Pinta: Painting Made Simple.
You might also be able to use Pixlr, the online photo editor that also has tools to remove backgrounds and supports the use of layers to put one picture on top of another.
