On-line social photo sharing, editing, and storage

We have discussed and used online photo editors, the past few days in class. Some of the sites we have used include:
http://splashup.com
http://fotoflexer.com
http://picnik.com
http://aviary.com (doesn’t work right yet)
http://photoshop.com
http://BigHugeLabs.com

After you ahve used each one of the sites to edit a picture, post the original and edited picture on your wiki page with a line of text indivating the website used and what effects or tools were used to alter the picture.

When you have finished this activity, make a blog post rating all the sites on a 5 star scale (1 being poor 5 being excellent) and state the strong points and weakpoints of each one.

Wordle and other Visual Tools

Use Wrdle.net to create a Word Map and post it on your WIKI page and your blog by copying and pasting the code from your published Wordle word map

Wordle: Untitled

Other visual tools include Visuwords.com and VisualThesaurus.com which both allow you to conduct searches graphically rather than using text only.

Evaluate all three of these sites and post a short blog entry about them

Social Bookmarking

We will be using “Blinklist” as our social bookmarking site. You need to create an account and add bookmarks for some of the sites we have used in class so far. You will need to add sites to your Blinklist account as the semester continues. Add the rest of the web 2.0 class as friends to gain access to their public bookmarks.
