Creating publicity images using Cornell Law School templates:

1) Click on the link (provided below).  Microsoft 365 home page will open.   Login: YOUR Cornell NET ID

2) The page will then re-direct to "Cornell University" where your Cornell e-mail address will be automatically inserted. Then type in your password in appropriate place which is:  

Password: YOUR Cornell password

2) Office 365 will open with the title "Law Student Event Templates"

3) Double click on "CLS-Student-Event-Templates"

4) Box will open asking you to "Open with Windows Explorer" click on Open and then click on OK

5) Then click on CLS Student Event Folder

6) Template options will open with indicating color of background.

7) Click on color chosen and then choose which option, i.e. 1 speaker, 2 speaker, etc.—will open in PowerPoint

8) Edit the power point slide, inserting the name of your group, title, speaker(s), images, date, time, place, etc. ---want to be as specific and concise as possible—be sure to include "Who, What, Where and When". Use MRM in the general tab "Event Description" to provide more detailed descriptions of the program that will appear on the Law School calendar. When it comes to poster type images,  this is the time when less is actually more. 

9) In the Slide---in the box where it now says "Free and open to the public"---if the group is using ANY GPSAFC funds for ANY expenses, no matter how small that expense, in order to actually access those funds, GPSAFC REQIRES that you insert the tag line "Co-sponsored by GPSAFC and Open to the Graduate Community". Please insert all other funding sources in this location as well.

10) When done, save as a PDF and/or PNG from the pull down menu under "save as type" (saving it directly to jpg from PowerPoint results in a lower quality image).

11) You will receive a prompt asking to save every slide or current slide; click on "current slide only"

12) The PDF can be saved as a jpg in Adobe Acrobat Pro (which is not a free application). Adobe Acrobat Pro IS installed in the Law School's computer lab so students can use those systems to create the jpg file

13) Attach saved file in whatever format chosen to e-mails, print for posting, etc.
