My apologies for the late edition of Fresh Look Fridays today, but the last few days have been busy, busy, busy!! Our 7-month-old is keeping me on my toes these days. But really, how can I say no to those baby blues:
With the countdown to the death of Picnik rapidly ticking away, many hack wannabe amateur photographers (myself included) were left thinking, "Oh no! How am I going to make my average looking photos worthy posting online and garnering numerous likes and comments??" Fear no more, my friends -- Foto Flexer has arrived.
I highly recommend looking into using this awesome online photo editing tool for any classroom activity involving a visual aspect. Although most of my Fresh Look Fridays posts are designed for use on your SMART Board, Foto Flexer is best used in a 1:1 classroom scenario, or a class taking place in a computer lab.
The concept is really simple. Upload your photo, and play around with the tools available to turn this:
or even this:
Experiment with the added effects, text, crop, animation, etc...the possibilities are endless!
Love, love, LOVE this website. I know that if you give it a shot with your students, you will too.
Happy weekend everyone,
