WHAT HAPPENS YOU BEGIN CURATING
STEPS TO SUCCESS DIGITAL CURATION
Select your target Audience
Discover and share specifically to your target
Own your curation!
WHY CAN’T I CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE IMAGE?
AGGREGATION VS. CONTENT CURATION
The difference is: the human involved curated content vs. computer generated aggregated content
Images have multiple color layers. If you changed the color, it will just appear as a flat “rectangle”. For that purpose, we have disabled it.
WHAT ARE SOME COOL USABILITY TIPS?
Try dragging across the screen to get a wide selection of icons and text together so that you can move them together as a block. You might also want to hold on to the SHIFT key as you resize an image or SVG as that keeps the proportions together.
THE DARK SIDE OF CURATION
-Not enough original content -Reposting -No commentary to add originality or worth -Re-creating the wheel -Time-consuming -Trying to find the right fit
