Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating interactive images, part of iBooks Author for Teachers: The Basics.
You can add descriptive captions to any image you place in iBooks Author.…But what if you have so much you want to say about the image that you really…need multiple captions?…In that case, an interactive image widget is the perfect solution.…You can add labels with pointers, and even make the image scroll and zoom…differently when the user taps each label.…Here I have an image of a stunning and very fragile landform called the Azure window.…I'd like to add three different pieces of information about specific areas…in this photo: the waves eroding the rocks at the shore line, the spot where…the bridge is disintegrating, and the place where warnings are posted about a…potential collapse.…
So for this, I want to use an interactive image widget.…I'll select the photo and cut it to my clipboard. I'll go to the toolbar…and choose Widgets > Interactive Image. I'll click inside the widget and paste my photo in.…Now, to start formatting it. I'll add the title, the Azure Window, I'll select…the text and use the controls in the Format bar to make it bold.…
