GRAPHICS: If you are involved in any form of Rotary Public image activity you know the importance of using graphics and photos. This website has Graphics Library where you will find a large collection of Rotary related graphics.
PHOTOS: This website has a Photo Gallery which includes images specifically related to District 9930. The gallery is constantly changing and growing. The Rotary International Website has a Library of Photos which can be downloaded and used in bulletins, websites etc. The photo sharing website Flickr is also an excellent source for Rotary photos. Below you will find the link to Rotary photos on Flickr. While the Rotary area in Flickr contains an extensive collection of good images it is by no means the only area in Flickr where you will find Rotary photos. Just enter a keyword in the search box such as "Shelterbox" or "Rotaract" or "St Jude School" and you'll find many more Rotary images.
GOOGLE IMAGES: Every computer user is familiar with using Google to search for information on virtually any topic, but you may not be aware that it is also an excellent source for graphics and photos. The process for finding images on Google is essentially the same as searching for general information. Entering the subject on which you would like to find a graphic or photo and click on "images" just below the search box. A collection of hundreds of related images will appear. Most of these images can be saved or copied with a simple right-click of your mouse. IMPORTANT TIP: When saving an image on Google first click on the image to open a full view and then click on "view image". You now have the full size image which can be saved. If you save only the small image that appears on the original screen you will save only the thumbnail version which is usually too small to be used in your bulletin or website.
VIDEOS: You will find a wealth of great Rotary videos in two key locations. YouTube and Vimeo. Most of these videos are short and ideal of insertion in a Powerpoint presentation in embedded in a club website or Facebook page. Most of the videos can be downloaded, and those that can not be downloaded can still be made available to others simply by providing a URL link to the YouTube or Vimeo page.
TWITTER: Twitter is a vast social network which is enables people to communicate with short messages called "tweets" that are limited to 140 characters. Rotary International uses Twitter to provide instant communication of a range of topics important to Rotarians. What to always be up with the latest news on the Rotary front?
