Kodak’s Big App

When I first heard about Kodak’s Big App I admit that I wasn’t too sure about it ….. but now I am hooked! I also thought it would be of interest to anyone like me who works in a school and has displays to do, or works with Cubs or Brownies or a playgroup etc.  or if you just fancy being able to put MAHOOOSIVE pictures together like this ……
Kodak's Big App 9
I know it doesn’t look mahoooosive in this picture, but it’s made up of 16 sheets of A4 paper …. can you imagine the fun you could have with this at a surprise party?!!!!
The Kodak Big App can be found here:-http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/consumer/print/thebigapp/ and is a piece of cake to use……

You can use your own picture or use one from the Kodak gallery.

Once you have chosen you picture, you can select the orientation and size of your finished picture.

When  happy, you then download the image, which the programme saves as a PDF file.

I’d say it take less than a minute to complete the process.

Finally you click “Download PDF” and save to a name of your choice, in your chosen folder.

Once saved you can then open the file in Adobe Reader, where the image has been broken into pages.

I hope this makes sense, but if you have any problems you can always check out the FAQ’s page http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/consumer/print/thebigapp/faq.html
I am planning on making and using one of these images as a background for one of my Geography Departments trip displays  and then add “normal” photographs and labels over the top……. With Christmas coming you could make really brilliant scenery for Nativity and other school plays and grottos.  I LOVE IT!!!

What a great idea, many thanks for passing this on. I teach GCSE Child Development as well as textiles/Fashion, so this would be a great resource to pass on to my students.
