Linking an Image in Glogster to the Webpage It Came From

It's important to acknowledge where you get any images from.  When creating a glog, we link the images to the webpage they came from if image citations are not in your linked/attached Works Cited page.  Follow the directions below for each image you put on your glog.

 FINDING AN IMAGE:

1. Open 2 tabs in your browser.  Log into Glogster in one tab  and in the second tab, use a search engine (Bing, Google, etc.) to locate an image of your animal.  

2. Click on the image, then click the "Visit page" button to take you to the webpage that the image is from.
