Great news for Google Drive users! Now Google presentation slides have two new features - widescreen format and customizable master slides. The article makes it easy to learn how to use the new features.

flea palmer's curator insight, October 10, 2013 6:35 AM

Two new useful features - widescreen (although this can be resized if not appropriate) and customisable master slides.

Moovly has some limitations - you use a standard palate of shapes or images to do the animation with. That said, it is easy to use and the free version seems quite adequate for what most people would want to do.

Judih Weinstein Haggai's curator insight, January 11, 12:56 AM

have you ever wanted to add a video snippet to a presentation?

moovly sounds good.

Easily Create Classroom Posters on iPad Using Pic Collage App ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Easily Create Classroom Posters on iPad Using Pic Collage App ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digital and Graphic Design Tips, Tools and Tricks in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Somebody has recently asked me for  a review of an app that can allow students to easily create posters on iPad. Pic Collage is the best option I recommend. With Pic collage you can take a bunch of picture and make one picture of it.

 

Using Pic Collage you can combine your photos in different ways . Scatter photos onto the background of your choosing or create a grid of your photos. Take the best parts of two photos to make one great one. Create a panorama or a mosaic out of multiple photos. If a picture speaks a thousand words, you can tell a whole story in a single frame with this app."

Robin Good's curator insight, June 15, 2013 10:02 AM


FaceTune is a great photo-retouching app for iOS devices (iPhones and iPads). Designed specifically for retouching human faces, FaceTune provides a specific set of tools to help you do just that.


To appreciate how good the tool is just look at anyone of the many video tutorials available (link below) which show you techniques and steps to clean up just about any pretty face.


Pretty impressive. Great ease of use and highly specific effects make this tool a hard one to beat. Too bad there isn't also a Web version.


Price: $2.99
