Feel like being the star of your own comic strip? Now you can with the Canon Pixma Comix App.
Recently Canon launched the new app called Canon PIXMA Comix. It is an interactive new application found on the Canon U.S.A. Facebook page. It allows users to create fun, personalized photo comic strips. Choose from up to six images to create a personalized comic strip. The images can be uploaded from images or video stored on a computer or uploaded from a Facebook page. Creative options include comic strip templates, photo filters like fish-eye, toy camera and poster effects, various font styles, and the ability to select comic-style speech and sound effect bubbles where text can be added. After creating a comic, users will have the opportunity to print the final product to display and enjoy, or post and share within their social network.
I had a few extra minutes so I decided to give the app a try. The first thing you will have to do is log into the app through your Facebook account. I chose to add pictures from my computer, but the app gives you the option to pull images from Facebook or your computer. Next, the app lets you choose the comic strip layout. There are several options depending on the number of images you want to use. Finally, you are able to insert speech bubbles and text to complete the look of your comic strip. Below is a sample of the comic strip I created. It only took a few minutes--the bulk of the time was used to decide what images I wanted in my comic strip.
To create your own personalized comic strip, visit Canon PIXMA Comix at www.PIXMAComix.com. As of right now the app is not supported on mobile devices so you will need to head to your computer to check it out.
