Tutorials

**I have updated all my comic resources. See this page to get started.


Here is an overview of the basic steps for making a single frame comic as a Google Drawing. It starts by showing how to import the image from a device using the Google Drive app.


Instead of using Drawings, I now usually just show how to build multiple frames in Slides now when I teach others about this process...

The comic tools are the same, but the advantage is that the newly updated Slides app now lets you import directly into the presentation using only a couple taps:

First install the iOS or Android Google Slides app on your mobile device to easily bring photos into your comics.

Google Slides for iOS                 Google Slides for Android


Use a computer or the device to create a new Slides presentation.

On your mobile device, go to a blank slide in that presentation, click the + sign and select Image.


Choose to get the image From Photos or From Camera. Using the camera is an amazingly simple way to immediately bring the real world into your creations!




In fact, you can even take it further and build the entire comic using the Slides app. I have a blog post about that here.



Here's an overview of making the comic frames from pictures shared by the teacher. (See the sample assignment on the Project page.)

And here is a video on Screencast.com showing how to turn the comic images into a video slideshow in WeVideo. (The tutorial has no audio and you can use the chapters feature on that site to move from topic to topic within the process. WeVideo has been updated, so some features have changed slightly from what is shown here. For example, Publish is now called Finish.)
