An iPad is a powerful tool but add a camera and the ability to be creative, share, communicate and to document learning is AWSOME!
This app is a great way to make postcards. Drop a photo on one side and a message on the other. You can even select a stamp and some simple decoration. Once again this has many higher level evaluation and synthesis uses.
A simple drop and drag way to insert photos and text to make quick but very effective collages – a great way to document learning. Easily saved to photo library, printed or shared by email or Twitter.
This is definitely one of the best photo collage makers I have seen…and it’s free!
A brilliant and simple app that turns your photographs into narrated slideshows – great for kids of all ages.
Insert a photo in to one of the many funky templates and backgrounds, add captions to make stunning posters.
Annotate photos, maps, any sort of image with shapes, arrows, sketches and text to get your point across fast…….and it syncs to Evernote.
Fantastic collage maker with stickers, frames and text and very easy to share
This is really cool! Choose a photo and add some related text. The picture is then inserted into the picture and creates the image. You get a bit of an idea from the app logo.
This is a very cool app. It is actually for the iPhone but works well on the iPad. It’s like those very expensive SLR cameras and takes lots of pictures very quickly – claims to be one of the fastest cameras in the iTunes Store and that’s possibly true. Once you open the app it starts taking pictures – hundreds of them. Stop the app the choose which ones you want to keep and the others are easily deleted. Great for taking lessons during a PE class for analysis and reflection or anywhere where kids are on the move.
I think this is one of the best and simplest app to use to create sensational photo collages. Any grade level could use this app.
This is both an app and a web site but definitely one of my favourite tools to use. There are heaps of template from posters, street signs, banners, art galleries, billboards, record covers and so much more. Simply upload your photo and Photfunia does the rest.
This is definitely my favourite photo editing app. There are a lot of ways to enhance and add effects to your images but I love the “focal” effect best. It allows you to set an area in very clear focus while the rest of the image is slightly blurred, a great way to add emphasis.
If you want to add filters, special lighting effects, background textures or boarders to your photos this app does that really easily. You could then use these “spiffed up” pictures in all sorts of other apps like Pic Collage, Photocard Lite or Explain Everything.
This is definitely one of my favourite apps…I use it a lot. You can use your words or phrases to create pictures . Great for creating headings, labels and signs. Or you could “paint” a picture using words.
Is a lovely simple little app to give your photos a cartoon like effect. Great to appsmash with a comic making apps
Bring your images to life by inserting “touch points” that connect to your pictures to notes, videos, YouTube clips or music from iTunes. Surprisingly simple to use and available as online at thinglink.com as well as an app
As the name suggests this app enables you to superimpose one image, or parts of the image on top of another. Simple to use with lots of possibilities.
A very simple way to enhance your photos by adding frames and matts. Lots of fun and great when you want a quick result or when working with younger learners.
A bit more complex than Instaframe -you can edit, add filters, overlays, special effects as well as borders. In fact they claim that there is over 2 million combinations possible. Perfect when you want a more complex, professional effect.
Slightly more complex than InstaFrame but this app has a lot of flexibility in the frames and effects that can be created.
This app might seem bit expensive at $2.99 but it is almost a professional editing tool. Well worth a look for older students.
I love this app. There is a lot of fun to be had and great learning opportunities turning photos into paintings.
Using Photo Slice Pro you can cut up and reassemble your photos in an amazing variety of ways for all sorts of uses – it gives a really professional “digital scrapbooking” effect
This is more than a photo editing app. It is a simple and effective photo journaling tool to encourage taking an image a day. It links beautifully with the idea of “slow looking” from the “Out of Eden Project” from the Project Zero team at Harvard. to learn more you might like to watch this short video
A simple app that quickly turns your videos into black and white. It makes a really nice dramatic effect and weeks on photos as well.
