SWOT Analysis


Strengths

  • Online editing tool can perform many tasks for free that might cost up to $100, if purchased.
  • Uploading of images is done by the "browse for file" method which is easy to use.
  • Ability to manipulate image or choose part of image to edit.
  • Includes good help section with FAQs, tutorials, videos, etc.
  • Switch between full screen or just within browser window.
  • Create text, bubble talkers, or themes to annotate/decorate your image.

Weaknesses

  • Extra storage and or tools cost $$$
  • No "lasso" tool to capture oddly-shaped images to edit around.

Opportunities

  • Take digital photos and re-create "new" electronic art.
  • Teaches digital photography editing terms to photo users.
  • Share account with friends and family or community.

Threats

  • Signing up for account involves giving out personal information (e.g. email address)
  • Must be 13 years old to create membership (no way to check age).
  • Ability to browse other people's galleries could show inappropriate content.
  • The Adobe company can, as it did, transform the application to the point where the old version does not exist.


Ideas for the classroom

  • Practice adding different effects to images.
  • Post examples of digital photography done by students.
  • Load images to site and have students create a Haiku poem based on image.
  • Create a photo collage to illustrate a story.

Examples of Use in the Classroom

In my opinion, the software is not easy to use and requires a lot of practice to become fluent in using the painting tools. Here’s a digital cartoon of myself that I created using the software.
