Multiple Image Import in Haiku Deck

Haiku Deck for iPad: Selecting and importing multiple images

If you’d like to sort your photos in chronologically ascending or descending order, you can tap the small blue icon in the top right (three small horizontal bars). Tap all the images you’d like to include in your Haiku Deck — a white box will appear around the images you’ve selected. Tap Add Images, and voilà! Your slides will be created automatically, and you can visit each one to adjust sizing and placement and add text.

When to Use Multiple Image Import

Certain kinds of Haiku Decks lend themselves perfectly to using your own images. Here are a few of our favorite examples:

  • Creating a Haiku Deck portfolio or catalog like Cat’s Print Shop, by Cat Barrett
  • lllustrating a step-by-step process like How To Eat a Pomegranate, by Destination Cuisine
  • Highlighting photos from an event or trip like Ephesus, by Simon Mackenzie
  • Collecting student artwork like Anacondas, by Mr. Johnson’s Grade 1 & 2 Class
  • Showcasing real estate listing like Midcentury Bungalow, by Paul Kaplan Real Estate
  • Publishing a stunning photo or slideshow on a blog or website like The Mini Company, by Desiree Groenendal

Looking to add multiple images to the same slide?

If you’d like to have more than one picture on the same slide, you can use software like Pixelmator or Photoshop on a computer, or an app on the iPad to collage or assemble multiple images into one file. Save it to your Camera Roll, and import it as a slide background!
