Convocation Save the Date - HOW TO CHANGE

The Save the Date image is now in an online editor which allows the Honors Department to alter its date/time each year. 

First, click here to login to OU Campus.  (how to login)

Then (not in OU Campus, but here on this webpage), click the following text (Click me!) in order to bring up a different window of OU Campus:  Click here

In the file-listing, look for the file "HonorsConvo.bfd". It is your Save-the-Date image. Right-click the filename and choose "Save Link as". Save this image-file to somewhere on your PC. Remember where you saved it to.

 

You’ll find this below really quick and easy. 

TO ALTER THE DATE/TIME TEXT
ON THE SAVE-THE-DATE IMAGE

  1. Open Chrome on your PC (or Safari on a Mac).
  2. Go to the site BeFunky: www.befunky.com/ .
  3. Click “Get Started”
  4. Click “Edit a Photo”
  5. Click “Start new” (if it presents a choice)
  6. Click “Open” in top menu (or “Upload”)
    Choose “Computer”
  7. Find on your computer the file named “HonorsConvo.bfd” (that was attached to this email and that you saved to your computer)

TO EDIT THE TEXT

  1. Click the date/time area…and an edit box appears
  2. Make your edits

SAVE THE IMAGE (JPG FILE)

  1. Click “Save” in top menu
  2. Choose “Computer”
  3. Enter Filename “HonorsConvo”…and choose “JPG” format.
  4. Click “Save”

TO FIND YOUR IMAGE/JPG ON YOUR COMPUTER

If using Chrome:

On your keyboard, hold down the “CTRL” key and while holding, press the “J” key on your keyboard (which pops up files you’ve downloaded using Chrome)

You should see your filename as the top item. Click “Show in folder” to access your JPG/image file.

You’ll see your file. Just copy it to wherever you need to use it. J

 

If using Safari:
Click the “Show Downloads” button (in top right corner of Safari)

It’ll show your file (HonorsConvo) in the listing.

Of course, it’d also be smart to copy your file from the downloads location to the folder where you keep your Convocation materials…so that you’ll have it next time.

BTW, you can just close the Chrome window when you’re finished editing and saving.
