Steller is my new favorite app on my iPhone. You can create a beautiful story from photos and videos you’ve taken of your life experiences. What could be more fun than that?

I started off by looking through some of the story that are posted in the categories that interested me. Inspiration is always important when you are going to create something of your own. Plus, if you find a story that inspires you, you can like the story, share on social media and even follow the person who created the story.

When you are finally ready to create a story it’s easy to get started.

When creating each new page, you need to select a layout. There are three main options, and each of those options have layouts of their own.

Text, Video, Photo
Your options

Selecting what you want to have on your first page is important. Should it just be simple text? A photo with text? Which layout should you choose? These are all important questions to have… but remember you can always re-arrange your pages if you don’t like the order.

Timeline

It’s easy to switch it up. Just touch the page you want to move and pull to the right or left. Once you have them order be sure to click on the last page in the list. To create you next page click on the bottom right icon with the + sign.

Adding text is easy. Once you've selected the layout just tap in the field you want to replace and type.

Now for some fun layout options for photos…

Each option allows you to adjust size, color, font and alignment as I mentioned previously.

I decided to add a quote to my story. I thought it added a little something. You can look up a quote that fits your story, but be sure to give the name of the person who said it.

Now for the finished story… You can look at the slideshow… or you can click on this link and look at it for yourself here. (You won’t be able to see the fun koi pond video in the slideshow… Sorry!)

Once you’ve finished your story, be sure to click the done button. You’ll then be asked to choose a collection…  If you don’t have any you’ll be asked to create a collection. The title can be basic, and you can pick one of your photos that you think best represents your collection.
