Good morning.

Today you should be working on your Photo Essay and/or your Portfolio. I’ll be around to help and answer questions. Let me know if you need anything.

An issue has come up with Photo Mechanic. Your photos for the Portfolio all need to be in one folder so you can make a gallery of them, but Photo Mechanic won’t let you copy the photos from one folder to your Portfolio images within the program. The solution is to select the photo you want, go to File and choose “Copy Photos,” but save them to your Desktop. Then you can manually move them to your Portfolio Images folder in your Photos Master folder. Make your Gallery from that folder. Let me know if you need help doing that, and help each other if I’m not immediately available.

Remember that for the Final Exam on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. we’ll have a test on caption writing (your favorite thing), and then we’ll present portfolios. Each of you will come to my desk, and we’ll project your 10 best photos for everyone to see. I’d like you to show us each photo, and talk about a couple of them (maybe your two favorites). Just say why you think they are your best work or if there’s an interesting story about how you took the photo. You get 50 points for presenting your portfolio.

Grades are updated on Synergy not including the News Package. Let me know if you have questions. I’ll be conferencing with you individually today about the News Packages. Some of you weren’t finished when we exported them. If you know you have changes/additions to make, you can resubmit that by Monday. I’m going to try to conference with you individually today about them.
