Communicating visually

Label photo

  • Labelling (or "annotating") a photo means to put labels on it to point something out to the viewer.

  • Use an arrow to point to something interesting in your photo. Then have a next text box explaining what it is. Use a ruler (or device) to make your lines straight and your text boxes rectangular.

  • Make sure you are pointing out something relevant and important! Is the thing you are pointing out to do with the topic or subject you are looking at? Good!
