Rasterized

Gadget, Lloyd, School

I think I’ve found a way to avoid ever having to make a bulletin board again. There’s a website that will turn any photo into a poster. You upload the picture and set the size that you want (and a few other things) and it creates a PDF file that you can printout, trim and hangup. I’ve been wanting to try it for a while, and didn’t have a reason. I finally decided that I didn’t need a reason for a test, and in video editing class we put this up on the wall. We would have put it in Nathan Bassett’s room, but we couldn’t lure him out of it.

This one is 11 pages by 5 pages. You can do any size.

    That’s super cool! I am totally doing that for chapel some week. Or I’m going to just blow up a picture of me and put it up at school. Or maybe a picture of Nathan.

    I’m at school now and tried going to the site, even though the name sounds bad. Luckily, it wasn’t blocked. Unluckily, it seems to be a spam site. Is it spelled correctly? Am I just confused? I mean, confused more than usual?

    Is that Dan? He’s not a boy anymore, he’s a man. When did that happen? How long have I been away from LL? He’s such a nice kid/man/student/human.
    And very cool site. I’ll be making a picture for finals day at CU…Heh. Should be hilarious. 😀

    How well do your math students do? I only ask because I count that your picture is 6 sheets tall, not 5.

    There’s an option to print a boarder around your pages. Next time I’m going to choose that option, because it will make trimming the pages much easier. If you’re not going to trim the pages, you won’t want the boarder.
