    Here, or here
    One goes on top of your pics and one in the middle of your pics
  • 15. Getting Fancy
    Slide transitions
  • 16. What they are
    Slide transitions are ways of going from one picture to the next.
    They can add shape or dimension to a picture
    You’ve used them in PowerPoint I’m sure
  • 17. Be Careful
    The awesome video we watched on Wed (4/6) did not use transitioning too often
    Transitions can get old fast or be too much
    They can take away from the power of your words or images
  • 18. This is the only picture slide for this section 
    Take a look at that task list you’ve been using
    Check out the circled area and follow directions
    Hey, you’re fancy now, you don’t need detailed instructions 
  • 19. Don’t Be Afraid to Get Super-Fancy
    There are lots more items you can play with
    Editing clip length
    Fooling around with animation
    Playing with the timing of your words and images
    Wow me and teach me something!
  • 20. Saving
    It is imperative to save the movie the right way or you will be very upset
  • 21. Why this is important
    Your pics, vids, etc. are only on YOUR computer. If you don’t save correctly, you will not be saving the whole movie…it is upsetting when this happens…trust me 
  • 22. Step One
    Be sure to click on save to my computer
    Be sure to follow all directions (pretty easy)
    IMPORTANT: When you save, it needs to be saved on your H drive!
  • 23. Step Two
    Upload to the wiki
    You can put the file on the wiki
    You can create a plug-in
    You can do some other fancy thing that I don’t know about!
  • 24. I hope you enjoyed the experience!
    I can’t wait to see your movies 
