Vacation photos and travel videos are an enjoyable method to share a quick take with friends and family– even while you are still on the road this summer. With iMovie for iOS on your iPad, you can quickly and quickly cut your casual videos, spruce them up with styles, mix video with still pictures, and include impacts, music, and cool-looking titles. Right here are a few simple steps that’ll developing much better slideshow on your iPad.

Select images in iPhoto and share in iMovie

Once your pictures are in good condition in iPhoto, pick up to 25 images to share with iMovie. In iPhoto, tap the Edit button in the upper-right edge. Tap the Gear icon in the lower-right edge, and choose Select Multiple from the pop-up menu. You can tap on specific thumbnails to pick them, or use the Array button at the top of the user interface. Then tap the Done button in the upper-right edge. After all that’s done, it’s time to share images for iMovie for iOS. Choose iMovie from the menu and confirm the choice. Then tap on the ‘Chosen’ choice and share the images with iMovie.

Fine-tune the transition

Once you are pleased with the video and pictures on the timeline, you can also choose something different than the default 1-second cross-dissolve between any two images. Tap when on the transition icon between the frames. It looks like a pair of triangles positioned nose to nose. When highlighted, tap on the brand-new yellow triangles that appear. Tap two times on the yellow dot that’s now exposed to show the Change Setups dialog box.

Add music and titles

In the timeline, you can also include songs, sound results, and titles. Click the songs icon to open the audio options window. You can choose Style Songs, Noise Impacts, or the various playlists, albums, and more from your iTunes library. When you choose a song or sound result, it puts a green wrapper around your clip in the timeline. Double-tap the green clip to raise the Audio Clip Settings, which allows you to adjust the volume up or down, or to delete the clip.

Adding titles is similarly simple: double-tap on a video or photo to raise the clip settings dialog box. Then pick Title Design and pick Opening, Middle, or Ending titles. From there, just enter the text in the job window and you are set.


Adjust Crop, Zoom, and Duration

Each picture frame can be individually adjusted for cropping and a Ken Burns impact. Tap on the thumbnail in the timeline to highlight the clip with a yellow border. Readjust the starting position to your taste. You can pinch outward to zoom the image. Then tap the End button for the closing framing. Tap Done when finished.

Personally, I like less movement with the Ken Burns result than iMovie uses as its default. So I generally readjust each frame in the presentation. You can also readjust the duration for any frame. The default is 4 seconds. Tap on the yellow take care of and drag to extend or shorten its play time.

Save and share

Now it’s time to share your deal with the world. While still in Projects view, tap on the Share icon. You may wish to save the presentation to your Camera Roll, since that’s the centralized database for images on the iPad. iMovie will ask you to choose an export size ranging from Medium (360p) to Full HD (1080p). I generally select 720p for my iPad mini.


You can send your getaway video to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, CNN iReport, or iTunes. Then, share a relate to your friends and family prior to you get home. You can also conserve the video to your Camera Roll, to see it later. If you’ve an Apple TV, utilize AirPlay to see it in high definition on your big-screen TV.
