Earlier this month I went to a meeting to learn more about the tasks. At first we're focusing on publicity, using the TV to show a slide show of things happening each week. Even though the little I've learned about computer artwork came from adding images to my blog, I volunteered to quarterback the job.
Since this was a new task for me, there was a learning curve. My first practice attempts looked great on my computer monitor but too small on the TV. When I tried to size them up they looked skewed. I finally figured out the correct size for the background and learned how to add text. It's still a cumbersome process, but every time I put a graphic together I get better.
After I figured out how to produce the graphics I had to learn how to transfer them from my computer to the big screen. We bought a new TV for our house a couple of months ago; I didn't realize it was 'smart' until someone showed me where to plug the jump drive (containing the files) in and how to access the contents of the drive on the screen. I followed the same process at church. The first time I saw one of my slides on the TV I have to admit I was really proud of myself.
