One struggle faced when adopting and adapting open educational resources for use in some courses is a lack of suitable images. Traditional publishers provide a repository of images, typically with easily editable leader lines and labels, that accompany the ancillary teaching materials. These images are especially useful in the STEM disciplines.

Traditional image editing software can be expensive; often requiring a long-term subscription. The software may also not be user-friendly, requiring extensive training to learn how to use them. For instructors who are not artists or graphic designers, losing publisher-provided images can be a major deterrent to adopting OER.

In this session, I will demonstrate how to use a user-friendly, relatively cheap app on a tablet to edit openly licensed images and pictures. The talk will focus on using the Procreate app on an iPad Pro since these are the tools most familiar to the presenter, however, the ultimate goal of the talk is to empower attendees, especially those lacking artistic abilities and computer-editing software skills, to search for ways to edit and create images using intuitive, low cost tools and resources. Examples of how the presenter uses the app include creating line drawings of images and pictures, erasing labels, and combining images.
