Thing #21 A Dramatic Story

I finally finished my photostory. Though some of the pictures I used came out a little blurry, I am mostly pleased with the result. I decided to do my photostory over The Crucible since my classes are currently reading the play. I could see my classes completing an activity like this to demonstrate their understanding of a text. The most time-consuming part of this process is the research. I had to search for appropriate pictures that I could use. Since I did not have a microphone, I had to use text boxes for my messages. Some of the photos obscure the words. If I used Photostory more often, I could learn how to choose better photos and music. I would like to spend more time with Photostory in the future.
The results are so drama-tic!

I learned something that may help another struggling player. If you have chosen in basic settings the updated settings, the upload video icon does not appear. I have been trying to upload my photostory forever through upload image, and that does not work! I finally found the information about what to do when the video icon does not appear. I had to change my basic settings back to Old Editor to have access to the video link. So, check your settings before you give up. Now, I am waiting forever for the video to load so I can publish it. Hopefully, I will be able to post it soon!

Are you sure you have the PS saved in the proper form? Remember it is saved in two forms...and to add it to Blogger it must be the finished form, not the editable form!
