Edit images right in Google Slides and Drawings
Google Slides and Drawings make it easy for you to tell a story and share your ideas. And a big part of storytelling is the images you use to bring a concept to life. Now it’s even easier to get those images just right, because Slides will let you crop, apply shape masks, and add borders to your images right within your presentation. Cropping To crop an image, select it and click on the crop image icon in the toolbar. Then drag the corners to your desired crop size and hit enter to make the crop. Applying masks To crop your image to a particular shape, apply a mask from the pull-down menu next to the crop icon. There are tons of shapes, arrows and callout designs to choose from, like the heart example below. Adding borders Add a border to your image by clicking on the line weight icon, and give it a little extra pop by changing the line color. Look out for image editing in Slides and Drawings over the next couple of hours. Related:  Photo editing websitesBilderGoogle Drive

Try these 5 undiscovered Google Drive tricks Google Drive and its attendant apps offer a wealth of tools to help you be more productive. Try these five for the biggest boost. Work offline Like it or not, there are times when you have to work without an Internet connection. You’ll need the Chrome browser to activate the offline feature. Search for links from within a document Normally when you want to add links to a document, you have to go through the tedious process of opening a new browser tab, searching for the page you want to link to, copying the URL and going through the steps to link the text. Google Search, however, is incorporated right into Google Docs so you never have to leave the page to add a link. Keep track of revision history Keeping tabs on all the changes made to a document, particularly a collaborative effort, can get dizzying quickly. To see the revision history of a Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Drawings file, click File > See revisions history. Use the web clipboard Publish to the web

Picadilo - Photo editing at its best - Spice up your pics! Thought Bubbles on Photos Several of us were talking a few days ago about different ways to design hook activities that would engage kids while also encourage writing skills. My favorite is to use thought bubbles on paintings or photos. Thought Bubbles ask kids to imagine what the people in the image are thinking. Start by finding a photo or painting depicting an event, idea or group of people that helps introduce your content. Using photo editing software such as Inspiration or Comic Life, add thought bubbles to a variety of the people in the painting. Project the edited image and ask students to “fill in the bubbles” on a piece of paper or wiki or blog or VoiceThread or Wordle – really just about anything that allows them to add content. You could also make paper copies of the image and hand them out to students if you don’t have access to a projector. The final step could be to have students use the different thoughts and sayings suggested to write a brief story or account of the event depicted in the image.
