      TECHNOLOGY TIPS


      1. How to Color Splash Photos on iOS, Android and PC- The color splash effect is a cool photo effect where a picture is first converted to black and white, then color is added back to certain parts of the image. This works really well in images with a lot of bright color because it looks much more dramatic when the rest of the image is converted to black and white and one item remains in color. Read more in the tutorial found HERE.

      2. How to Use Spark Lines in Excel- Ever had a worksheet of data in Excel and quickly wanted to see the trend in the data? Maybe you have some test scores for your students or revenue from your company over the last 5 years and instead of creating a chart in Excel, which takes time and ends up eating up an entire worksheet, some small mini-charts in a single cell would be better. Read more in the tutorial found HERE.

      3. Insert an Excel Worksheet into a Word Doc- Ever need to insert an Excel worksheet into a Word document and have them linked so that when you update the main Excel worksheet, it automatically updates the values in the Word document also? Well, there are actually a couple of ways to insert an Excel spreadsheet into Word: linking, embedding and creating a new one. Read me in the tutorial found HERE.
