Microsoft has announced integration of Sway, its digital storytelling app with the Microsoft Photos app on Windows 10. This ability has arrived with the latest Photos app update on Windows 10. The Photo Albums will have a “Tell your story with Sway” button after the update and tapping on this button lets you create a Sway account and turn your Album into an interactive story. It also support Living Images.
Microsoft Photos brings together photos and videos from all your devices, making it easier to work with and organize them into beautiful photo albums, and transform them into memories for you and your family. With Sway, you can craft a narrative around the individual photos and videos that you share with your loved ones, and turn your album into a professionally designed personal story in minutes.
Just click the “Tell your story with Sway” button in Microsoft Photos, and your album immediately becomes an interactive, web-based experience. Then use Sway to add section headers, text narration, captions, and other details to enhance the flow of your narrative and create your own story. And you can add in all kinds of other web-based interactive media, too, including tweets, Vines, maps, charts, and even Living Images (which capture additional pre-photo footage and breathe additional life into your narrative). Tell the tale of your recent vacation, make an instructional video or even create a blog style recipe of the delicious food you cooked last night. The possibilities are endless – give it a try today!
You can update the Photos app from here.
