Blur Out Student Faces From Photos Using Skitch

I take a lot of photos in my classroom but many districts don’t allow you to post students images on the web.  There is a quick and easy way to get around that by blocking out their faces using a program called Skitch.  You can download this awesome little tool from their website or they also have an iOS and Android app that you can download from those respective stores.

Here is a quick video tutorial of how to blur out faces using skitch.

Through my research over the last few months I have noticed a significant increase in pins that get re-pinned when students are pictured actually using your product.

    This was really, really helpful to me. I wanted to post some pictures, but I wasn’t comfortable with having the students in the picture – even if it was just their backs. Thanks! This blog is so incredibly helpful and needed!

    Thanks so much for the tip! It’s so hard to post photos of the amazing learning that’s going on in my classroom without including the student’s faces. But I always thought a lot of the blurred out photos I’ve seen online look really unprofessional. I’ll be trying this.
