Meet Me: Photovisi style

Confession: I'm one of those people who subscribes to the whole "A picture is worth a thousand words." philosophy. I take lots and lots of pictures in my classroom because I think it really lets the parents get a glimpse at what their kids are up to in our classroom. 

Next Confession: I love Blogger...I really do. However one thing I'm not super thrilled with Blogger is that its not the easiest to post large quantities of pictures. I used to do my class website on my mac using iWeb. It was great because it had this fabulous album capability where I could dump all my classroom pictures into neat little albums for my kindergarten parents to see. However I couldn't update my website at school and it was just a big hassle so I decided to switch to Blogger. And I'm happy with the switch EXCEPT for one thing- What am I suppose to do with all my pictures? I'm certainly not going to upload them one at a time to my posts.

Solution: Photovisi! I found this fabulous FREE website where you can literally dump your pictures and it makes these really beautiful collages out of them. You simply choose a collage, upload the pictures you want to feature, press a button and "Presto Chango" you have a beautiful new collage! You can even add text and change the background image if you want! So cool!

Here's the link if you want to check it out (and you should!): Photovisi ! And in an effort to kill two birds with one stone I thought I'd introduce you to me using photovisi!

Things I Love!

Just a tip: when prompted to download your collage don't push the large green "Download" button (it links to some other page!) but the smaller blue text that says, "Click here to download your collage.." Hope you have fun with photovisi!
