Create and share your first photo journal

The new iPhoto app is great for editing your snaps on your iPad or iPhone, but there’s a whole lot more to iPhoto than just being a simple editing suite. In fact, some of the sharing options included are really impressive. Functions like Twitter, Facebook and Flickr sharing are built into the app, as well as the ability to export your shots to iTunes, your Camera Roll, or send them via email. Beam even allows you to share photos through Wi-Fi with other iOS users nearby.

However, the best-looking of all of the new sharing features is without doubt the Photo Journals option. At any time you can create a journal form whichever photos you like, and see it in instantly set out your snaps in a beautiful grid. The grid will, at its most basic, just contain the photos you’ve chosen, but iPhoto gives you the ability to add things like maps, notes and even restaurants you visited so that you have a photo album bursting with memories all in one place.

With a range of designs and full customization options for where you want your shots to sit in your journal, this is arguably the best way to share your photos with friends and family from the comfort of your iPad.

The title at the top of the page can be altered. You can make it fit into the grid or sit across the top of the page, and you can also change the next if you’re not happy with your title.


Double-tap an image and you can alter its position in the frame- iPhoto will centre it automatically, but if your subject is near the edge of the shot this is really useful to know.


If you took these photos on an iPhone, they will have information attached, meaning the Date, Weather and the Map will all automatically find the information and apply it.


In the bottom-right of each image is a small icon showing whether the shot is in portrait or landscape. This will help when you’re working out which images to reshape.
