Great Student Gallery Question

Great Question:
I was wondering, on your Week 1 Midweek: Just Checking In post, you said, “I also see many of you have your Student Gallery image in.  Well done!  This will be the only assignment that can be shot with a smartphone or in auto mode on your camera.  After this, we are going full manual!  Yay!

Does this mean that Student Gallery Image | Due Week 1 can be with our iphone? and we can upload that picture?

 

Answer:
Thanks for your question.

Yes, this is what this means.  You may use your phone for the Student Gallery assignment.   We know there are a few of you still getting your camera in hand so we built this assignment so that you can use a automatic camera.  What this assignment is working on is being able to resize your photos correctly, adding exposure data, encouraging you to be creative in your images, and giving you an opportunity to learn how to correctly submit photos in Canvas.
Take care,

How Do I Resize Photos in Apple’s Photo App?

Great Question:
The only app I have on my computer is the “Photos”.  I don’t have any apps that will allow me to size and save images. Would that app work or are there other apps you would recommend?

 

Answer:

Hi,
You should be able to file size in Photos.  Here are the steps you can follow:
  1. Highlight the photo(s) you want to export
  2. Go to File > Export > Export [#} Photos
  3. In the new window, click the downward facing carrot to the far right of Photo Kind
  4. Then in the expanded window, fill out your selections as below (You won’t be able to choose 72 PPI, but that will be OK.)Apple's Photos File Sizing Window
  5. ​Click the Export button
Let me know if this does not make sense.
Otherwise, you can download, install, and use GIMP (Links to an external site.) for free.
Hope this helps,
