To create a folder- click on your desktop until it says "Finder" on the top of the computer.
Click on Control + click to right click.
Create new folder.
Change the name to "Light Painting."
Double click the folder to show the contents (it will be empty- but it's larger to be able to put photos in there without getting it on your desktop).
2. Open up your light painting photographs.
Select all by pressing one of the photographs and click Command + A.
Drag the photographs to the Light Painting folder.
3. Open up Google Drive- make sure you're in Google Chrome.
If you do not have Google Chrome installed- go to "Finder" on the bottom left (happy blue face)
Go to "applications."
Double click on Google Chrome- it will ask you if it's okay to open- yes. Use this as your default browser.
Create a new folder called "Photography."
Upload your folder of Light Painting in there.
- We will be doing this process for all the projects so that you will have a copy of the photographs in your Google Drive, in case you ever need to access them at home, or if your computer crashes, etc etc.
4. Edit your top five light painting photographs however you would like in your Photos application- crop as you want, make them brighter or darker, etc. Be creative! To edit in photos, use the edit button on the top right hand side.
5. Save the images as lastname-firstname-lightpainting1.jpg, lastname-firstname-lightpainting2.jpg all the way to 5.
To save your image, highlight the name (DSC_000etc.jpg) BEFORE the .jpg. It takes some practice!
Make sure you do NOT erase the .jpg otherwise the photo will be unreadable and corrupt.
ONLY use the - character between the words with NO SPACE.
6. Once you saved your top five photographs, you will put them in the class drive-
Go to finder- RBV-Class1- 231common- Period # - 09-18-2017 Light Painting
Make sure you are dragging them to the correct folder!
*if you can't get to the shared folder, click on the desktop and make sure "finder" is on the top left of computer.
Click "Connect to server."
Type exactly smb://rbv-class1
