BloggerBlogger was one of the websites that i used to project all ofthe work that i did on constructing this product. UsingBlogger i learnt how to present my work electronically andreceive feedback on it so that i could improve it. I used andimproved my ICT skills when on Blogger and also gained alot of presentational skills. There were some downfalls tousing Blogger as i needed internet connection and i didn’talways have it.
FlickrI used flickr when annotating my research and my ownproducts as it was the best way of presenting them in a tidyway. When i used flickr i learned that it was easy to tagphotos with notes and have a clear picture of what i haduploaded. I discovered that when i needed to transfer thework onto my blog i could embed the picture and with a linkonto my blog so that people could view it and click on it tosee the annotations.
CameraI took the pictures for my magazine on a Samsung digitalcamera which i have used before, however this time i learntthat using lighting it can make the pictures look better qualityand of a higher standard.I think that during the process of taking pictures the zoomwasn’t necessary however had a 10 times optical zoom andwas good to test out. The camerawas a 16 mega pixel one and so ittook very high quality photos formy magazines. This was before iused Photoshop to edit thecolouring and features.
PhotoshopI had previously used photoshop for other work to editphotos this gave me an advantage. Although using it tocreate magazine layouts, this taught me about all of thestructure that this software in order to piece all of theconventions together in order tocreate a good well set outmagazine. I also learnt how toedit the images so that theywere better quality when i put itonto my magazine. I have nowdeveloped my skills in thisdepartment and it helped memake a good product.

I haveimproved my ICT skills further and built a knowledge of howto use Prezi to reflect information in a way that will strikeattention and keep people intrigued when looking at my work.
SlideshareWhen using Slideshare i had to create a Powerpointdocument first and then upload it to the website Slideshare.When i wanted it on my blog, it was easy to get the code inorder to embed it onto one of the pages so that peoplecould view it easily.
