Create a collage or slideshow of your photos on the iPad
   
 

There is so much that can be done on an iPad. One of the most popular activities people enjoy are working with photos. It's a snap to take pictures with the iPad's standard Photos app. For instance photos from a recent vacation, the grandchildren, or a lovely landscape nearby. In the App Store there are apps that offer a variety of tools for enhancing your photos. A number of these apps are easy to use and free to download. Photo editing apps generally offer lots of preset filters, plus useful tools to crop, repair, lighten, darken or sharpen your photos. And if you want additional editing capability, you can purchase an app for a small amount with even more great features. Often you can enhance your photos automatically or use manual controls.
Once you have edited your photos you can create a collage, slideshow or photo album. In a collage, you can combine a number of photos to give a quick impression of a vacation or an event, such as a wedding or a family reunion. There are other apps that can help you create a collage. You can add text, stickers and special effects to the collage.
And if you have taken some beautiful or interesting pictures, you will surely want to share them with others. There are several options for doing this.
Our practical and useful book about photo editing on the iPad will show you how to do all of these things in an easy, step by step manner. Soon you will be able to edit your own photos and turn them into works of art. It will surprise you how much is possible with the photos on your iPad!
