Create Custom Digital Paper with WordFoto

I wanted to create digital paper for my photo books that was more unique than the typical generic designs. Here’s how to do it. You will need an iPhone or iPad, although there may be similar software available for the PC or Mac. If you know of any other options please let me know and I will include that information here.

There may be a simpler way to create WordFoto digital paper, but here is how I did it:

  1. I saved the papers from StoryBook Creator to my PC. The easiest way is to add the paper to a page, make it the full page size, and then export the pages as JPG files using the Save As command. The example above is from the Cheerful School Digital Kit.
  2. Next, I emailed the photos to myself so that I could add them to the camera roll. The easiest way to add them to the camera roll is to open the photo, tap on it , and then use the Save Image Option.
  3. Once the photos are in the camera roll, open them with WordFoto, which is available from the Apple store for $1.99. Make sure that the Word Set contains the words that you would like to use into WordFoto.
  4. After WordFoto has completed processing the image, transfer it to the camera roll and then to your PC. You can import the images into StoryBook Creator, just like any other photo. Resize to the desired size.

Here is another example, from the Primary Elementary School Digital PP Kit.
