    I teach photography(small rural town) and am looking for images to project or is it powerpoint presentation? to the student on either a white wall or on a large presentation monitor(computer). I am looking to do this via the internet. Having been brought up on slides-i dont know where to begin resourcing the images, and how, for lecture. Can someone offer some advice? Thank you.

    I am in a similar situation. I use powerpoints. Images gathered online using something called snagit (?) and also images scanned from books. I also show youtube videos, usually 3-4 minute segments of documentaries. It is enough to give my students a taste of what is out there.

    Gather all your links, and your images in ~800 pix size, jpeg or gif, and sit down with an experienced powerpoint user. You'll see that it goes very quickly and is very easy.

    You can also round up images searching a term via Google and then 'View Images'. Brings up all kinds of related images and diagrams.
