November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

ThingLink - Make Your Images Interactive

ThingLink - Make Your Images Interactive | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it

Description by edtechteacher

 

"No longer do images that teachers and students use for presentations have to be static presentations. Thinglink is a new web tool that allows images to be uploaded and tagged with hot spots. These hot spots can be text, links to web based content, or YouTube videos. When the image is viewed online, the hot spots become click-able and reveal the embedded content. Thinglink allows for a completely new approach to using images in the classroom and provides a new medium by which students can present image based content for projects or assignments.:

Open Content Program (The Getty)

Open Content Program (The Getty) | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it
The Open Content Program provides free, unrestricted access to the Getty's digital resources.

 

Why Open Content?

The Getty adopted the Open Content Program because we recognized the need to share images of works of art for free and without restriction, so that all those who create or appreciate art—scholars, artists, art lovers, and entrepreneurs—will have greater access to high-quality digital images for their studies and projects. Art inspires us, and imagination and creativity lead to artistic expressions that expand knowledge and understanding. The Getty sincerely hopes that people will use the open content images for a wide range of activities and that they will share the fruits of their labors with others.

 

What's in Open Content?

Currently, there are more than 87,000 images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute available through the Open Content Program, including more than 72,000 from the Research Institute's Foto Arte Minore archive, which features photographs of the art and architecture of Italy over 30 years by German photographer and scholar Max Hutzel (1913–1988). Other images include paintings, drawings, manuscripts, photographs, antiquities, sculpture, decorative arts, artists' sketchbooks, watercolors, rare prints from the 16th through the 18th century, and 19th-century architectural drawings of cultural landmarks. Over time, images from the Getty Conservation Institute will be added, as well as more images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute.

Crop Images on iPhone & iPad Easily with Photos App | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it

"The Photos app in iOS includes a built-in crop tool that works very well for quick edits on the go with the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Perhaps even better, there’s a constraint tool that lets you instantly crop images to a variety of common photo proportions, ranging from a perfect square, 4×3, 8×10, 5×7, 16×9, and others taking the guesswork out of the process. No additional downloads or apps required, it’s all featured in the default Photos app."
