HELP WITH TECHNOLOGY - NEW VIDEO GUIDES
A HELPING HAND
People are always asking McGarry Consulting to help them with technology. So we'd thought we'd create a series of very simple video guides, about a minute long. This makes it much easier than trying to explain over the phone or trying to follow written instructions. We're calling the guides, 1-MIN VIDEO GUIDES.
Between working with so many different groups and teaching ourselves, we've picked up a lot of tips. There's also been a lot of cups of tea, CTRL+Z and google searches... Often little tips or short-cuts can make things much easier.
1 MINUTE VIDEO GUIDES
So far we have guides to:
- Searching for Images on Google
- Searching for Images on Bing
- Searching for Images on Yahoo
- Reducing the Size of Photos & Images
- Saving as PDF
We will gradually build up a catalogue of our own and signpost great services or articles we come across. Please send us your suggestions.
EXAMPLE: REDUCING THE SIZE OF PHOTOS & IMAGES
Reducing the size of photos. A typical picture taken by a smartphone might be 2Mb - 3MB in size, and could easily be much larger depending on settings. If you include this - or similar size image/logo - in your report, flyer, website, email etc this will make it harder to save, send and share. It could also eat into your mobile data allowance. Our video guide shows you how to reduce the size of an image by 90% or more in seconds. If you have a large email or report and you're not sure why, check the size of the images (especially photos and logos).
Thanks, and if you come across any good online tools, apps or technology please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
