Create Simple Picture Stories with PicSay


PicSay is a fun little photo editing app that I’ve had installed on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet for a while, but only recently started playing around with it. PicSay allows you to add speech bubbles, text, and some special effects to your images. To start using PicSay select pictures stored on your device or in your Google Picasa albums. When you’ve finished editing your pictures you can save them to your SD card or send them to a number of online storage sites including Evernote, Dropbox, and Google Drive.

PicSay could be used by students to create short stories by adding speech bubbles and text to some of their favorite pictures. Your students could take pictures of their pets, like I did, and create conversations between them.

    I use this app with classes for them to comment on what they have learned in lessons. This makes a fun plenary; pupils search for a relevant image/ photograph their work then add speech bubbles and titles explaining what they learned in lessons. Kids love it and they then blog it on the school blog site so that I can see what pupils have learned and correct misconceptions. Excellent app.
