Holiday Creativity

Do you want to use your photographs to create animated greetings for family and friends?

Perhaps you would rather create a bright personalised message to send by email?

Various techniques will be shared at Creativity SIG and Digital Photography SIG (Sat 5th Dec 2020) and R&O SIG (Wed. 9th Dec 2020).

For example:



1. You might quickly add a frame or border to a photograph using Markup. This can be achieved on your Mac or iPad.





2. Animated GIFs or Movies
can be quickly created in Keynote.






3. The movie below shows step by step creating an animated image in Keynote — the iPad was used below however the process is very similar on the Mac.

4. The next Movie shows an animated GIF created for your holiday message using Keynote on the iPad

5. For a bright, colourful and personalised greeting the iPadOS14 version of Notes just needs the addition of your imagination

  1. Hi Pam,
    Thanks for posting this. I look forward to your SIGs this month.
    I see you worked extra hard for the AUSOM news this month and feel a bit guilty as I was otherwise occupied. I have article to send for the February AUSOM News.

  2. hi Pam,
    Love your making a gif. As a lazy person, who forgot someone’s birthday till 6pm, I rushed around trying to find a gif that would amuse them to put on their facebook page. I wasn’t sure how it would go so posted to granddaughter’s page another one, as a test. She was delighted with the cat eating pizza and now wants me to make one of her cat chewing something naughty ( like her slipper).
