Ambulatory Care: Be Creative!

A guide for students in RX 646 Spring 2015.

Edit & Combine Images

Image Editing

    • Combine images into diptychs, triptychs, collages, etc. Use borders, filters, cropping, and annotation to make interesting and impactful statements with your images.
    • You do NOT need Photoshop to do image editing for this project (though you are welcome to use it if you're so inclined). There are free web apps and software that are more than powerful enough to do what you need.

Create your Own Visuals

Infographics, Wordles, Charts, Graphs, and Maps

Think about different ways you can express information visually: do you have statistics or other data that could be represented in a chart, graph, or table? How might you use maps to plot or contextualize information? What about an infographic, timeline, or wordle?

  • Web Apps: (charts, graphs, maps), (charts, graphs), Piktochart (infographics), ZeeMaps (maps), ScribbleMaps, Wordle, Tagxedo (wordles)
  • Software: Excel (Windws / OS X), PowerPoint (Windows / OS X), Numbers (OS X), Keynote (OS X), Google Earth (Windows / OS X / Linux)
  • A screenshot in Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, or Apple Maps goes a long way. OS X has simple screenshot utlities built in, but if you want something easier than "Print Screen" for a Windows machine, try Jing

Embed a PowerPoint Slideshow

SlideShare is like the YouTube for PowerPoints and slideshows. You can easily create a gallery of images in PowerPoint or Keynote, upload it to SlideShare, and embed it in Wordpress with nice buttons to flip through the images. Don't forget to attribute your images either at the bottom of each slide or at the end of the show.

You will need to create an account with SlideShare in order to use this service. Once you have an account, click the orange "Upload" button to the right of the search box at the top of the page.

SlideShare supports PowerPoint files (.ppt, .pptx, etc.) as well as PDFs and OpenOffice Presentation Document (.opd) files. If you are using Keynote, make sure you export your presentation as a PDF file.(File → Export To → PDF; Image Quality: Best). 

Once you've uploaded your slideshow, click "View Presentation" at the bottom of the upload confirmation screen.

Copy the URL from the address bar in your browser. Paste the URL into the WordPress editor where you would like it to appear.
