Assignment Steps

  1. Select 20 images / photos using a copyright friendly image source (save the URL / website as you go - see sources below)
  2. Build your presentation:
    1. Download those 20 images to a folder on your computer. (REMEMBER TO SAVE HIGH RESOLUTION VERSIONS!)
    2. Create a new PowerPoint with all 20 images (Insert-Pictures-Photo Album. You can select as many files as you want from your folders.)
    3. Either:
      1. Include a final credits slide, listing websites you used
      2. Include the link/URL to your pictures on each slide.
  3. Optional: Upload your presentation to Google Docs (as a Google Presentation) - Make sure you save your PowerPoint as a PPT 2003-2007 file - Google Docs does not like .pptx files!
