Digital Imaging
There are many programs teachers can used for working with their pictures from Adobe Photoshop to all those programs that come with your printers, scanners and cameras. The Florida Digital Educators recognize that a common language of digital imaging will be very helpful statewide that affords teachers in all districts FREE digital imaging capability. We recommend Picasa for the Windows platform and iPhoto for the Macintosh platform.
Picasa - Is an amazing program with the tools for digital editing on a simple level. The favorite feature to date is the ability to create collages.
  • Locate and organize all the photos on your computer.
  • Edit and add effects to your photos with a few simple clicks.
  • Share your photos with others through email, prints, and on the web: it’s fast, easy and free.

Image size suggestions:
For the web 300 - 500 pixels
For printing Highest possible
For email 150 - 300 pixels
For a presentation - According to Steve Rindsberg, Microsoft MVP and co-creator of PPTools.
The Basic Rule is this: For images that fill the slide, the image size (in pixels) should be equal to the video screen's resolution. For example, if your screen resolution is set to 1024 × 768, that's the size you want your full-slide images to be. If the image occupies only half the width and half the height of the slide, it should be 1024/2 or 512 pixels wide, and 768/2 or 384 pixels high.

We have used it in the past and found there is a bigger learning curve than in other programs like it.
