Photostory 3 can be used to combine photos, music and text together to create a slide show. The programme is fairly easy to use, however, is not very 'child orientated' and so would probably be better used with KS2. A quick tutorial by a teacher may be necessary to introduce the program, nevertheless, children should be fairly independent following this (age dependent).

Photo Story 3 has very limited picture editing tools, however it does have a varied selection of slide transitions and is a simple program which is quick and easy to use. For Key Stage 2, children could be encouraged to take their own photos and record their own sounds and music and combine them using this software.

Have a look at these examples of the program's use with younger children. The teacher has made photo-stories, some with photos and some with examples of work. This could be used to update parents on children's work and progress in class, however, safeguarding issues must be considered with photos on the internet.

Below is a quick tutorial on how to use the software.
