Video: Adding JPGs to a meeting room

One of the content types that I can put in a Share Pod is very simple, but it's actually very powerful and it's very flexible. I use it quite frequently and that's the JPG file, because it becomes any image. In other words as long as I can convert the image into a JPG I can put it inside a Share Pod. And I want to show you a couple of examples of how I use that. First off, we'll just go ahead and upload a standard JPG. So I'll Browse My Computer, and again, among the Exercise Files that you have available to you, if you're a Premium Subscriber, are these files here, although of course you can use any JPG file that you want.

Adding JPGs to a meeting room

One of the content types that I can put in a Share Pod is very simple, but it's actually very powerful and it's very flexible. I use it quite frequently and that's the JPG file, because it becomes any image. In other words as long as I can convert the image into a JPG I can put it inside a Share Pod. And I want to show you a couple of examples of how I use that. First off, we'll just go ahead and upload a standard JPG. So I'll Browse My Computer, and again, among the Exercise Files that you have available to you, if you're a Premium Subscriber, are these files here, although of course you can use any JPG file that you want.

What I have here is a JPG of a document. Now it was a document that started its life electronically, but somewhere along the line we lost the original version of it and so all we have is a printout. So what I've done is I've run it through my scanner, you can see that it was a little bit of askew as I ran it through the scanner, but it still works. So any document that I have that's a piece of paper that I want to bring into my Connect room, I can do so by converting it to a JPG and then opening it inside a Share Pod. Again, as a best practice I'm going to go ahead and rename it.

Because it makes it so that you can always get back to this document, now that it sits on the server, and you can get back to it by name, Flavored Oils. As a JPG file I can do things like draw and mark it up just like I can do with any other file type. So if I want to use this as a review session, I can. There is another markup tool that I can use here that I haven't really covered before and that's the Arrow tool. It's just a pointer and it's pretty much all it does. If you want to draw attention to something simply click and it makes a green arrow pointing to that thing. That's pretty much all it can do, but it's still a good way to draw someone's attention to something.

So for this instance this is just kind of a standard putting a JPG file up there to present to, or to draw, or to mark it up, but there is actually one more way that I tend to use JPG files. We haven't really talked about video and using web cameras, but I will say just about them. They are somewhat bandwidth intensive and though they're tempting to use, because they allow you to develop a relationship with your audience, it may not be a valuable use of bandwidth to have your camera running the whole time just to let people know what you look like. So instead of doing that, I'm going to close Video pod here.

I'm going to open up a Share Pod, and it will fill that same spot. And instead of sharing my video camera I'm going to open up a JPG file that is a picture of me. Now this isn't an actually a picture of me. I wish I were this good looking and this young, but we'll go ahead and upload it. Instead of having it be called Head Shot M.jpg, I want to double-click on this and rename it. Now this little pod is something that I can use over and over and over again in this meeting room to show people what I look like without having to invest the bandwidth in a video camera. And it's often the case that for a meeting like this, I'll start out with the web camera going for just a few moments to introduce myself, but shut that down in favor of this.

The reason I do that is because this doesn't use any bandwidth at all. Once the user has seen this JPG it's essentially cached on their own computer. So there's no bandwidth required at all for this picture of me to be there. I've included these two pictures of the Two Trees Olive Oil Company's staff, but it's a good idea if you have a picture of yourself to go ahead and load that onto your system and put it right into your Connect room, because it's something that I think you'll use over and over again. And of course, as with anything else, if you close it and you need to bring it back, you can always select Pods < Share, the picture yourself, and there it is.

It's a pretty handy technique, I use it a lot. But the flexibility of using JPG inside the Share Pods opens up a wide variety of uses for the Share Pod along with JPGs.
