Fall 2011 WEEK 3

photo by Chris DePue

Welcome to Week 3.
Saw some very nice photos from Week 1, we saw some really nice self-portraits with self-expression. Let's keep up the good work.

  • -when reviewing the Powerpoint presentation, copy the PPP file to your HD then open from there. (Opening a large file like that across the server will put a drain on server, and in some cases -crash)
  • -do NOT put folders in the DROP folder, just drag and drop the images solo. Thank you.
  • -be sure to slug each photo correctly, otherwise 1pt will subtracted from each assignment.
  • Do not forget to do a complete and properly formatted caption, -1pt.
  • check file size before submitting photo to DROP, 1-2MB per photo.
  • check the Graded Assignments Folder.
  • if you miss and assignment be sure to make it up and submit to drop ASAP.
