Teenagers have aspirations. As an early teen, mine was to be an artist. Then I found out that artists need art talent. Then I wanted to become a comic strip writer (combining a little artistic talent with writing). Then I found out I needed to be a witty writer, too.
Where was Comic Life when I needed it? Add Comic Life to your Mac, drop in some photos to a pre-built comic template, add balloon dialog, and your strip is good to go, Mac style.
One screen shot says it all.
Your Mac’s screen becomes a digital comic strip creator. To the right you’ll see your Library and Page Templates. Click on a template and you’re ready to create.
Click on the iPhoto button and drag and drop photos onto strip frames in the template. Drag a balloon dialog to the template frame and position it over a photo, then add the dialog you want.
Do you feel your inner comic coming out?
Comic Life isn’t just for comic strip creation. It’s a great way to share family photos. Save the finished pages as an album you can share, email, or post online.
Your entire comic collection can be saved on your Mac. Comic Life comes with filtering tools to give photos the comic book look. It’s also a great app for creating attractive presentations and instruction manuals– the kind people will pay attention to.
There’s also an iPad version, perfect for classroom or kids. This is a good app for helping kids to visual logical sequence and story telling.
The latest version uploads to Facebook. If I could give an app a 10, this would be a 9.5. Intuitive, useful, fun, and a good way to spend too much time trying to out do Dilbert or Peanuts.
