Last year I wrote this post about how to make a photo essay on the iPad. But in spirit of giving the students a couple of choices, here is another way to do it, using keynote.
1. Gather your photos. Depending on your topic and the parameters of the assignment , you can either take them yourself with the iPad or download photos from the internet and save them into your cameral roll. Here is a photo from the library window:
2. Then use a photo enhancing app like pixlromatic (free) to give it the look you want (optional):
Warning: don’t take too long on this- there is an embarrassment of choices that can you paralyze you!
3. Go to keynote and choose your template. I recommend the plain black one. Add you photo and your caption:
Repeat! Don’t forget to add a title page!
When you are done you can email it to yourself:
If the file is too big for you to email to yourself (which happens quickly with photos), you can also import it into imovie and then upload it through your youtube account. Make sure to click on the privacy setting that allow only the person with the link to view it.
