How to Use the Free YouTube Video Editor

http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Use-YouTube-Video-Editor

The YouTube Editor is not the most powerful editor you will ever use. However, it is free, and it includes all the basic editing tools you need to make a professional looking video. It is also an online tool, so you can use it anywhere you have an internet connection, and on any computer that you have access to.

My note: The author forgets to mention that the editor exists now also as an app for mobile devices, thus competing with other “free” mobile apps for video editing such as Splice, iMovie etc.
It can be a great addition to “spice up” videos posted on Instagram, Tweeter and other social media, besides YouTube.

digital photography

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 16th April 2013

April 17, 11AM, we met for one-hour conversation on digital photography and its use in education. We discussed parameters of digital cameras, which we would like to consider as well the trends of shifting certain tasks of digital photography toward mobile devices. We also discussed the opportunity of using “cloud” based applications for rudimentary processing of digital images versus using Adobe Photoshop for the same purpose.

Here is a link to the basics of digital photography; we touched on some of the parameters discussed here:
