I’ve just confirmed the Wheeler Centre as the venue for next week’s picklet workshop for authors. I have a small group of local comics and webcomics creators who are interested in making digital popup books for iPhone and iPad.
I’ll give a brief overview of the platform and then spend as much time as possible using the export script for Photoshop and the Picklet Builder site to create some genuine third-party content.
As preparation I’ve been making some teaching materials.
This diagram represents the parts of the picklet platform that are of relevance to a new picklet author.
It can be read as data flow from left to right; from Photoshop we save .png files into Dropbox. The picklet builder site pulls the png files from Dropbox into the editor and player. When a picklet draft is created, the png files are available and served from the builder site rather than Dropbox.
I will be expanding on this explanation next Wednesday at the invite-only picklet workshop at the Wheeler Centre.
I am very excited.
