  1. What is it?

    1. Select 20 images / photos using FlickrStorm (save the URL / website)

    2. Build your presentation:

      1. Download those 20 images to a folder on your computer.

      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. Include a final credits slide, with your name and a tinyurl.com link to your FlickrStorm images page

      4. 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!
