Pick Images from the Camera Roll and Mask them for an iOS Childrens Book App

Pick Images from the iOS Camera Roll and mask them, so your reader’s can be part of the story.

This video discusses some amazing new features in the Story Tellers iOS Starter Kit 2 that allow your readers to pick a photo or take a new one to incorporate into their story. The image can be masked, and edited within the mask (by position, rotation, zoom, squash and stretch) and those settings will be saved for every page of the book that displays the image. So readers could dress themselves up in the book and go off on an adventure as a knight, princess, goblin, whatever.

Further reading on this is available in the online documentation.

Subscribers can also watch a video tutorial series on how to access the camera roll in iOS9 and mask it in SpriteKit using an SKCropNode.
