Images allow me to make it more visually pleasing for the reader. Powerpoint is also very easy to use: Microsoft Powerpoint This is at the top of the page and allows me to change the font size and colour of any text.

  11. 11. Safari was the software that allowed me to access the internet, which enabled me to search magazines and the website for my blog. Research was a big part of my coursework and I needed to look and analyse other magazines before creating my own to create the best product I could. Without safari I couldn’t have viewed the construction of other articles, contents pages or articles. Safari  What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
