Mac Mania at Manaia

What fun we had today exploring what our new apple mac is capable of.. we experimented with photo booth and had a real laugh creating strange and wacky faces! There are lots of different effects to choose from and each one makes our face look totally different! We have learnt how to change the different effects and then how to take the photo. All we need to do is click on the camera, watch the numbers count backwards, 3,2, 1 and then smile for the camera... I imagine we are going to have heaps of fun with this programme and I look forward to a wall display of all our very strange faces!!! What an excellent way of learning as a team and then being able to share our new skills with others.

Photo booth is heaps of fun we love using it at Greenwood Kindergarten. The children specially love trying to 'hide' from the camera just as its about to take the photo, great fun.
