How to Use Photo Story 3.0

When my students see this program on the board they get soooo exited about and just cannot wait for their turn to record their voice!

This is a free application which can be used on your desktop computer. I haven’t tried it on a tablet but you can use it on any device I guess.


Just search for Photo Story 3.0 and download it on your desktop. Launch and start to use. That’s all!

Here is a video I’ve created with my 1st graders before.

They love to hear their voice! You should see them 🙂

And in the second video I tried to explain how to use Photo Story 3.0 step by step.

You can read the steps below:

  • Download the program on your computer from Microsoft’s website. (it is free and safe – as it’s Microsoft)

  • When you launch it you will see a screen where you can add pictures from your pc.

  • You can upload any pictures you want to record your voice over.

Useful Tip: If you want to create a photo story of a Video but you don’t have it’s pictures, you can take screen shots from the video and save them as pictures on your desktop.

  • Now, it’s time to press the red record button and record your voice over each picture.

  • Besides recording your voice, you can also write on the pictures. (Create your own subtitles)

  • Then, just click next and save it on your computer as a video.

  • Before saving choose the format of your photo story video. (MP4 or AVI etc)

  • For more detailed instructions you can watch the video tutorial above.
