Today Miss Ashley showed us lots of tips and tricks for using Google Drawings to make our pictures look amazing. We learnt about
-CROPPING TOOL (this lets you cut part of the picture out)
-RESIZING (making a picture smaller or bigger)
-MASKING (making a picture fit inside a shape like a circle or heart)
-RED MARKER LINES (so the picture is in the middle of the page)
-PNG FILES (drag and drop) (We have to use PNG so they don't have ugly backgrounds, PNG has no background)
-GROUPING (This lets you kind of 'glue' two pictures together to make one picture)
-TEXT (rotating text)
Miss Ashley showed us how to build layers into our drawing, sending some of the images behind or in front of the others so it looks nice. We practiced lots of how to find good PNG images that we can layer together to create a very effective image.
Here are some of the drawings we made using these new skills
Dziah (made by Miss Ashley)
Joshua - great PNG finding of the balloons and fire works. (The bunting and rugby ball aren't PNGs, see how they have funny white backgrounds)
Mojtaba - Great layering of his face on top of the circle of roses.
Syraiah-Lee - Amazing use of PNG's to create the ring around your face and how you made it look like you are wearing a crown!
Stanley - Again great use of PNGs to give yourself bunny ears.
Wesley - Good use of confetti, bunting and balloon PNGs in the left corner,.
We still need practice finding PNG images because sometimes it says they are and they aren't, so some of us have weird backgrounds on our images, but we will get better and better the more we practice.
We are very proud of ourselves for the new skills we have learnt today.
