In iPad Tips and Tricks, author Christopher Breen provides expert tips for getting the most out of the Apple iPad (first generation) and iPad 2, including gesturing, typing, and adding content, as well as troubleshooting common device issues. The course explains how to download and manage apps, configure email accounts, create presentations, and set up videoconferences. The course also demonstrates both built-in and third-party solutions for opening and editing files, streaming video and audio wirelessly, and troubleshooting common device issues.
And now we are going to take a look at Photo Booth. This is the iPad's secret babysitter. Fire up Photo Booth, hand your iPad to any restless child, and that child will be entertained for a good long time. It's a great babysitter, not only because this is just a heck of a lot of fun, but it's also really easy to operate. Let me show you. So we tap Photo Booth to launch it, and here's the main window. If I wanted to, I could flip the camera around by touching the Flip Camera button at the bottom right. I don't want to do that right now.
If I wanted to take a picture, I'd tap the Camera button and there is my face. To preview that, I just tap it. I can also delete it by tapping the X. Now let's take a look at the effects. There are variety of effects here. We'll start with Thermal Camera. Very easy, very hot. Hotter behind me. Take a look at Mirror. Now I'm in Stereo. X-Ray just flips color scheme around, a little spooky looking but nice.
Then there's Kaleidoscope, and this demonstrates how you can pinch and stretch these effects. So, if I stretch, I make very large facets, and if I pinch down, they become smaller. Again, normal them in center. Here's the Light Tunnel. Again, you can pinch and stretch, stretch, see most of me, pinch way down, and I become very nosy.
Back to Effects. Squeeze. I live this thing. So I don't know if you know it, but I am kind of known for my hair. Check out that bouffant. Is that something or is that something? Twirl, use your finger and twirl around and okay. And finally, there is Stretch. Now this is a great look if you're going to the Easter Islands. They'd build statues to you.
Let's go back to Effects and finally, back to Mirror, and I'm out of here.
