AVIARY IMAGE EDITOR: Image Editing Made Easy and Fun!By: Kendra BurekOverviewThe Phoenix image editor tool can help the faculty, staff and students of the James Madison University College of Education who have vested interest in learning how to edit images for projects, presentations and everyday life. The Phoenix image editor tool allows you to edit images much more effectively than other editing programs, because it offers a wide variety of applications ranging from basic editing tools to complex effects. The program is both user friendly and accessible to the public. Without an understanding of the Phoenix image editor tool, the JMU College of Education will be limited to using programs like Photoshop which may not be as user friendly and accessible.

OverviewI will gain the attention of my audience by presenting a picture of a student who looks very frustrated with using another image editing program (Photoshop). I will make sure to point out that Aviary will help make image editing less stressful because of its user friendly set up.

GoalFaculty and staff will be able to use the cropping Image Editor tool of the Aviary program efficiently enough to instruct their students on how to use it. Students should be able to use the tool and program efficiently after instruction.
