Things you need:
• A digicam for about 1 hour. Even if you don’t have one most universities rent them or you can borrow one from a friend. I would recommend a 2 mega pixel digicam, although 1 mega pixel might serve the purpose as well.
• A little knowledge of any Image editing Software, plus the software and computer access
• 2 – 3 email addresses for opening accounts at www.Shutterfly.com
About $5 for 45 door tags
Click photographs of your residents and transfer them to your computer. You may use existing photographs too if the resident really likes it. The photographs can be funky, serious, cool, role-playing, depending upon what the resident wants.
