    Using the camera

    This course is for anyone with an Apple iPad who wishes to learn how to use the tablet's built-in camera to take and share photos.

    Most modern Apple iPads come with very sophisticated cameras, as well as features that let you edit and share the photos you take. In this course, we look at how to access your tablet's camera, take great photos and selfies (short for self-portraits), edit them using the tablet's Photos app, and delete a picture that didn't quite capture what you wanted.

    We also find out how easy it is to send a picture to a friend and use your favourite pic as a background image to add that personal touch to your tablet.
