Cut, Crop, resize and Clean an Image in Picasa

Cropping and Image in PICASA

Resources for a Jigsaw Classroom Project 
In the course of the Jigsaw making project the student need to have reference material from which to learn the basics of digital preparation for their images. There is also Photoshop 4 Kids here at Blogger, but I wanted to list other software programs that class members may wish to acces to cut, crop, resize and clean an image.
I have set out to make this process simple.

To support the book Virtual and Traditional Jigsaws in the Class Room, I have set up a holistic, collaborative project so that teachers can see what it is like to valance a cooperative atmosphere.   All students are included in a spirit of inquiry.      (An eCLISP)
I am sure that other teachers are travelling down this track too.  If you would like  to do a guest Blog about your project here, just drop a note in the comments box and I will be happy to swap insights and activities.
For now......
Let's just start with 
What is Picasa?
Picasa is a free software package available for download on the Internet. 

Looking for a simple way to get photos from your camera and computer on the web? Google's Picasa Web Albums provides 1GB of free storage that makes sharing your photos a snap. Visit

In the article Co-Contributory Paradigm of an eCLISP I talk about developing resources in the context of an eCLISP. This is a project within a Community of Learning Inquiry and Studio Practice. Gradually we are gathering the resources together so that a Hybrid Reference Centre emerges from the project based learning strategies that take place.

When designing Hybrid Reference Centres you will find that certain providers come to the top of the list time and time again. Half tongue in cheek, I joke that Cream Rises and link to a jigsaw I have created Calf Sucking Jigsaw Puzzle.
