Tips for this activity:
If you are going to use a picture, you will need to shrink it to a size viewable on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

You could also use a slide from a presentation for this exercise. Simply save your presentation as .jpg files and repeat process as below.

I used to resize the photo. (Free online photo editing tool)! Crop4Free is the App you could use on your iPod Touch/iPhone to do the re-sizing.

Then I saved the photo and added it to my iPhoto library. When your iPod is synced to your computer (Photos tab) then the photo will appear in your photos stored on your iPod. You can then use it in other apps.
