This is an eye-opening map which shows the extent to which we have polluted the earth from 1960 to 2008.
Simply choose two countries you want to compare, pollution-wise, and choose the date you want to look at (from 1960 to 2008). You will then be presented with information showing how much those countries have polluted.

Picture to People - Online Graphic Effects

Picture to People - Online Graphic Effects | technologies | Scoop.it

Free online professional photo effects and free online realistic text effects.

 

Most learners (and many practitioners) have social networking accounts and or web presences that may benefit from adding special effects to images; adding to the visual appeal.

 

Online applications to add these effects, for this purpose, are preferred since they do not require any installation; we all know how difficult it is to get software added to Learning Provider PCs.

 

These applications can also be used on any computer with internet access.

 

Although convenient, not all online image effects websites offer a wide range of filters and images.

 

Check out “PicturetoPeople” if you are looking for an excellent website that offers not only a wide range of image effects but text effects as well.

 

Picture to People offers its users an invaluable source of image and text effects; the website’s use being free makes it even more special.

Quick Picture Tools - Free Online Image Editors

Quick Picture Tools - Free Online Image Editors | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Looking for a set of image editing tools that learners can use without having to register for a service, take a look at Quick Picture Tools.


Quick Picture Tools could be used by students for editing and enhancing images before placing them into a slideshow or video project.


There are numerous things learners and/or practitioners can do to their digital images: unless they have bespoke software, often they have to use a different website for each type of effect.

 

Quick Picture Tools offers most effects in a single package.

 

Quick Picture Tools is a free to use web service that lets you perform 12 different types of image manipulations to digital photographs. These effects include...
   - embossed text,
   - turning your image into a calendar for your desktop wallpaper,
   - combining images for a PC wallpaper,
   - rounding corners of an image,
   - adding striped framed,
   - giving them a printed look,
   - combining images in the form of collage,
   - adding an embossed line frame,
   - adding a simple lined frame,
   - blurring the edges of the image,
   - adding text to an image, and
   - simply cropping an image.

 

Select any one of these effects from the website’s homepage. Users can load any JPEG, GIF, or PNG image from their computer to the website with a maximum resolution of 1500×1500 pixels.
