It’s been a while since I gave any instructions on anything so I thought I would start with something that I love. iMovie! A lot of us have migrated to the MAC platform (or MAC with windows running on Parallels), and that being the case, it’s opened the door for a lot of cool programs such as iMovie.
The nice thing about the MAC platform is that you practically can start using any of the software and not need any instructions at all. Well, with iMovie that’s true as well, however there are some cool functions that can assist you and make you look like a total pro. Have you heard of Picture in Picture? Totally rocks!
To use it you’ll need to go into the preferences in iMovie and turn on “Show Advanced Tools.”
See Example here:
Now you take the clip from the bottom row and drag it on top of where you want to put it and once you let go of your mouse, you’ll get a ton of options. (See below)
Choose Picture in Picture and then done – and your done! There are some other options that will make it refined, but you get the idea! Cool right!
What if you could take all of your old ticket stubs from your past and create an online scrap book of them? What would that be worth to you? Imagine a place to put all your photo’s from concerts of your past with your friends to put in one place to keep the memories together…Well, now there is an app for that!
Introducing Stage Page
Stage Page was released earlier last week for the ipad and from everything I’ve seen it’s fully FUN and has all the makeups of the biggest thing to hit the internet since…well…maybe Pinterest! It’s free and you can download it today. Why are so many downloading it? Check out the features:

StagePage uses the amazing photo editing software, Aviary. With this you can edit pictures and videos by improving the image quality automatically, adding effects, and more.
Of course, after you have created your StagePage, you must share it with all of your friends. StagePage is setup to share via Facebook, Twitter, and email!
StagePage is going to allow you to FINALLY clean out your junk drawer & toss all of those old school photo albums.
