Two of the most valuable apps for teaching are the Camera and Photos. Let's tap on the Camera icon. Tapping anywhere on the screen while you take a picture, brings up the focus point It'll show as a blue rectangle. To zoom, move your fingers apart, the thumb and the pointer finger. This will greatly reduce the quality, to zoom down just pinch back.
To capture a photo, tap the button with the image of a camera, and upon release the photo will be taken. Once you have taken a photo, you'll see an image of that photo down in the bottom left. If you slide your finger from left to right across the view, you'll be able to see recently taken photos. Another onboard app that ships is Photo Booth. For fun just try it. Some of the pinching and open gestures that we just did with fingers on the camera, also work with certain effects here.
Let's look at the kaleidoscope effect. By pinching open and close. We can scale up and zoom out and in to create a more interesting kaleidoscope. We're going to look at how to share photos once you have taken some. Tap on the Photos. From the Photos Tab, tap on Edit. And then select the images you want to share.
Next tap the Share button. If you want to send more than five images by email, you will have to copy and paste them into the email. To delete photos, Select the Photos Tab, Tap Edit. Tap the images you want to remove, then tap Delete. Now to create an album. Tap on Albums, then tap the plus sign to add a new album. Give the album a name.
And then tap save. Select any of the photos from Camera Roll that you would like to add to your newly created album. When you are finished tap on the done button. If you tap on Blue Art the album we just created you'll see the images you just added to that album. If you would like to add additional photos to an album, tap on Edit, then select the images you wish to add, then tap on Add To. And a pop-up menu will show up, asking you whether you want to add to an existing album, or add to a new album.
We're going to add to an existing album. then tap on Blue Art. Let's go to albums. Let's tap on the album that we want to look at, Blue Art. Let's tap on the Edit button to re-order the images. By tapping and sliding back and forth, you can order your photos into any order that you want. Now, let's tap on Done. To see an image in full screen, tap on the image, then using your fingers, squeeze to go back to the thumbnail view.
You can also use this gesture to enlarge the images by squeezing out. there are two ways that you can do slide shows within the photo app. You can tap slide show and bring up whatever transitions you want or music if you want, and start the slide show. This method will cycle through all your pictures once and then quit. The other method for doing a slideshow is a presentation mode called Picture Frame. Press the ON OFF button, press it again and press the picture frame icon that looks like a flower next to the slide to unlock.
The iPad will start scrolling through all of your photos from the Camera Roll by default. To change the setting and to choose a specific album, go back to Settings. Then choose Picture Frame > Albums and this is counter intuitive but you have to deselect everything but what you want. Now if you go back to Picture Frame for presentation mode, it will loop through the album that you have selected.
Camera and Photos is a great way to display the work that your students are doing, for them to tell stories, for them to show animations, to use like a flip-book. To do research projects that includes all kinds of media from photos to pictures of text, to scanned images, to videos. So using the Photo and Camera apps, you'll have a great time presenting the work that your students do. The Camera and Photos app will become essential parts of your teaching with the iPad in the classroom.
