Education from time to time continues to experience changes, because if there is no change then the quality of education will be questioned while the current demands of the times are increasing. This causes education as one of the pillars that must remain firmly standing in the face of every challenge that exists, dismissing all changes whose direction can make the bad nation's generation forget its existence as a change being. Education must come with different and more challenging concepts, faces, methods, and materials to increase students' thinking stimuli. In addition, education must be able to give joy, not sadness. The combination of media and IT in school learning is a scourge and at the same time an opportunity for educators. Becoming afraid on the part of some educators because of their weak mastery of IT so they seem to be strangers in the learning process.

A writing skill is a capacity to convert ideas into complete, comprehensive and understandable sentences that may be used to convey those ideas to the reader effectively. The purpose of this research is to find out whether using digital photographs can improve students’ skills in writing descriptive texts or not. The researchers used a descriptive quantitative pre-experimental method by applying digital pictures to teach writing descriptive text. The sample of this research consists of thirty students at SMP Negeri 1 Pangsid, South Sulawesi. The result shows that students’ writing skills increased by using digital photographs. The results are indicated by the mean value of the pretest (44,73) and the posttest (82,93).
