One of the first additions to my iPad’s app collection was iPhoto. Although I prefer to use PhotoGene for editing photos, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on iPhoto’s Journal feature. It alone is worth the $4.99 for the app. Making journals is almost as much fun as scrapbooking and the result can be shared right on the iPad or online via iCloud. The journal lets you build pages of photos combined with other elements like quotes, text, maps, dates and even weather reports. You can rearrange and resize them to look just the way you want.
It’s not perfect – yet. There are several themes to choose from, but you don’t have the ability to change fonts. My guess is that will come with future updates. Below is a quick walk-thru of the process to build your own iPhoto Journal.
