Year Eight Swimming

"The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see."
David Tukey

Design Brief:
Create a montage from Monday's swimming sports.

Success Criteria:
Remember that your montage must showcase Somerville in a positive way. Do not use any embarrassing photos.


Choosing photos
All the photos from the swimming sports are in iPhoto on the ICT computers.

  1. Open iPhoto and look through the photos.
  2. Create a new album by clicking on the plus sign in the bottom left hand corner. Name the album with your name.
  3. Drag any of the photos you like into the album.
  4. Collect at least 12 photos.

Making the Montage
Use comiclife to create the montage.

  1. In comic life change the page size to A4 by going to Page Format and selecting the first drop-down menu.
  2. Select ISO and then A4.
  3. Select Libraries.
  4. Drag a panel onto the page.
  5. In Libraries select iPhoto at the bottom and use the drop-down menu to select your iPhoto album.
  6. Drag your first photo into the panel.


Remember that you can click the panel and use details to make irregular shapes and add frames and shadows.
Remember that you can double click the photo to add styles and filters to the image.

Look at the examples from 2009 that are on the walls.

Save your work into ICT Year 8, Syndicate and then your folder.

You can save your work as a JPG and put it on your wiki.
