Making a Preview of a Document

Hi guys! I had a request to share a tutorial on how to make these fun preview documents:
I didn't have a preview for my new Ladybug Family yet so I thought I'd kill two birds...you know ;)

Sorry if I sound congested...apparently I have a cold!
It would only let me record for 5 minutes, so I had to go pretty quick, and it still cut me off at the end! I just wanted to tell you guys that once it's saved as a jpeg you can upload it to TpT or TN.
Hopefully it helped answer some questions, you can always leave a comment or email me if you need any help!

  2. I use publisher too, but I know a quicker way to get those page shots.

    Go into the PDF, then go to the top toolbar, down to tools, Select &Zoom, then to snapshot. You can take a pic of each part you want so easy that way. Then you can add it to your new publisher doc!

    Hope this saves you from going into Paint.

    Love the video!

  10. Thanks for posting this. I do something pretty similar except I have a Mac. I do a screen shot of the screens I want to use and then put them together on a powerpoint page. I have one huge powerpoint with the screen shots of everything I put on TPT in case I need to reuse it one day.

    Love the tutorial!

  16. That was great! Do you love using publisher for creating your documents too? I am using Pages/Mac but thinking of maybe buying Publisher over the summer. I love how you can make the doc in a jpeg. Thanks Melissa

  17. Hadar-Do you ever have more than one page for your previews??? Example would be for a center packet. I sometimes like to have one page for a quick glance of math centers and another page for literacy centers??? I was wondering if we can upload more than one jpeg image as previews? I usually post pdf previews but would like to start using jpegs like you do. I'd love to find out. Thanks so much!-Yvonne Dixon (vonniedixon@gmail.com) Sassy in Second
