Just a longwinded preamble:
I am an inner city classroom in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, who has discovered and fallen in love with Paint.NET. At the beginning of this month, I am teaching a Digital Photography half class to my inner city students, most of whom have very little to no photo editing experience (short of removing red eye) and am figuring out some way to use Paint.NET in my classroom. I have set it up where I am using only 4 programs to teach the kids with (FastStone Viewer, Irfanview, Paint.NET, and GIMP) I was only given a budget of $1000, and I spend all of that on digital cameras, cases, memory cards, and a bookâ€¦ so Photoshop was out of the question (to license it for 1 computer, was around $125 per computerâ€¦ ouch) So I love that Paint.NET is such a fantastic program that is powerful and free. Plus, I purposely chose free programs, because if these programs are free, the kids (who have a computer) can download them at home and have fun there.
My question is what might be a general conscientious as to which tutorials to teach the kids to use. I will be teaching Paint.NET for roughly 10 classes. In that time, 1 class will be dedicated to introducing it. I usually spend 1 class teaching, and 2 letting the kids work and play with the assignment. So roughly, I want to teach 3 or 4 tutorials, depending on how well the kids â€œget itâ€
