How to Add Content & Images in WP:

Each week you will add the photograph studies to the corresponding project page in your WordPress site.  photographs . Scan or photograph your completed project each week at 300ppi. Then “edit” the UI Design page: add the image. Documentation of your projects needs to be professional and should only contain your actual design – do not include the wall, thumbtacks, bedspreads, or the floor.You will also add the assigned writing on this page each week. Writings will be 150 word self critiques on the project you handed in (unless otherwise noted). You will refer to the provided guidelines and your textbook to incorporate design vocabulary learned for the specific project. Label each writing assignment with the project number and name. It is recommended that you first complete this in Microsoft Word and then paste it into your blog, this way you avoid any accidents from occurring! Computers have a funny way of freezing or crashing at the wrong times. All writing should utilize correct spelling and grammar.
