This project has introduced me to a lot of new technology that I hadn’t used before. Like I discussed before I learned how to digitize and use Photoshop, among other things. In addition to that I have had to learn new things about my computer and iPad. I mentioned before that I am making a video that will play at the beginning of the website and to do that I need to combine multiple photos and audio in a video making program. I don’t think I’ve ever made a video like this before, so I wanted to use an easy program and iMovie was recommended by a few different people. The only issue is that I am a PC user. I have an iPad and iPhone, but they are few years old and the App Store won’t allow me to download iMovie unless I have iOS8. Then you get the dreaded rejection message.
As we all know, older devices slow down a lot if you put a new operating system on them and I am not excited about that. Even though I have not resolved this issue yet but I wanted to blog about it to talk about the challenges that you face when working with technology. Sometimes you don’t have the luxury of working with the newest products so you have to find some way to work around it. Right now I’m going through a list of PC equivalents to iMovie hoping that I can find a good one. We will have to wait and see what I come up with.
