This week you will use a tool called a mashup, and post an image on your blog. A mashup can do many things, but on Flickr it allows you to manipulate, organize, or otherwise have fun with photos in new and different ways.
Choose one of the Flickr mashups below, and then post an image you’ve created with it on your blog this week. With many of these mashups you'll be trying, there is a button on the mashup page that allows you to embed an image into your blog very easily.
Here is another way to post an image. Start by saving it to your computer. Next, while you are writing your post, look above the box you are writing in, at the toolbar. Click the button that looks like a little photograph; this is how you add an image to a post. An image of the toolbar is below. The button is third from the right.
Spend time this week playing with several of the mashups below. They’re a lot of fun!
Be sure to write a post about your experiences this week with Flickr mashups and post at least one image you’ve created (No reason you can't post more than one, though!!). Spell with Flickr, Captioner, Big Huge Labs are some easy ones where you can create your own images.
