Design skill – add hat to photo

eLearningArt

Sometimes you have an accessory or tool, such as a hat, that you’d like to add to a photo of a person. Maybe you have this great photo of Meg, but you’re using her in a safety scenario to train factory workers. If I can’t do it in PPT, then I attempt it in Photoshop (and I get nervous b/c I’m just not that skilled in Photoshop). If she’s not wearing a hardhat, you’ll never hear the end of it from your trainees. Don’t stress.

Tips for Storytelling in Learning

Experiencing eLearning

Q: If not using bullet points in a PPT presentation, what do you use to display stories? A: Full bleed photos are good when you can. These are my live blogged notes from the InSync Training Byte session “Once Upon a Time, Storytelling WAS Learning” by Tom Campbell and Karin Rex. My side comments and thoughts in italics. Any errors, typos, or awkward phrasing are mine, not Tom and Karin’s. Tom started with a story about how he visualized his presentation.

6 Ways to Add Sizzle to Your Classroom

Learning Rebels

People would much rather put their skills to practice than sitting nicely, watching your PPT deck progress while the life ebbs slowly from them. Take Pictures: At the end of each module (or lesson) have participants take a picture of the flip-chart, the PPT screen, or something (or people) in the room that will remind them later of the topic. Even if they scroll through the photos later with the intent to delete, they are still reviewing information previously captured.

How to compress PowerPoint presentations and reduce picture file size

BrightCarbon

Go into the ppt folder and there are even more unfriendly folders. You could go into an image editing program, and the Photos app in Windows 10 is actually really good for this. TIF files are often produced by high quality cameras in professional photo shoots. Media-rich presentations are great. Including high-quality images and videos often adds hugely to audience engagement, but it also adds file size.

This week, I’d like to highlight the: Pixel to Print Size Calculator : If you create graphics in PowerPoint, you know that PPT uses print size (inches), but your image requirements are usually in pixels. That lets you adjust the canvas size in PPT to create an image of any size. April was a busy month. I moved from Santa Monica (Los Angeles) to Lake Tahoe, CA. I’m closer to family now and it’s a good life up here in the mountains.

It’s easy to spend hours searching for the right background. One way to cut down on the search time is to build your own backgrounds.

The media folder is one level down inside the ppt folder. You can quickly scan the folder with an application like Picasa or Windows Photo Gallery. This is a trick I kind of stumbled upon a few months ago. I was attempting to zip up a PowerPoint 2007 file and accidentally unzipped it to reveal a media folder that held all of the images I was using in my course. Now, keep in mind that this only works for PowerPoint 2007, but it’s still a cool trick, nonetheless.

Search

Tony Karrer

filetype:ppt - Often use OR or the "~" to expand your search when looking for examples can be a good trick. This is likely my last post in the Tool Set series. This post likely will be quite a bit different because I'm convinced that most people have used different search tools enough that they are pretty comfortable with their current search behaviors. My intent here is to possibly expand the options for the average knowledge worker to be able to search a bit better than they do today.
