This might sound like a minor Book Creator update, but users are going to love this:
You can now crop images and photos added to your Book Creator projects!
Just right-click on the image and select Crop. It’s that easy!
This will also work for PDFs that you import into your projects, because when you add them, Book Creator actually turns them into images. So that means you can crop them, too!

A few years ago, I made a blog post about all of the things that you – or your students – can add into a Book Creator project.
At that point, when you added PDFs in, they were really just a link to the PDF. Now though, you can add pages from the PDF right into your book. Click the + button, then more, then files, then upload that file. You’ll then have the option to bring in certain pages or all pages of that pdf if, of course, it had multiple pages. If you add multiple pages, they’ll each be a separate page of your Book Creator project.
Also, when you click New Book from the main menu in Book Creator, there’s now an “Import Book or PDF” option in the top right. It’ll then let you choose the page dimensions and, if it’s a multi-page PDF, which pages you’d like to bring in. (You can also use this option to import .epub files)
Once you have the PDF into Book Creator, you’ll be able to crop it, resize it, write on it, add annotations, add color to it, and even add audio files on top of it for some added UDL. And this means that your students can use all of those features when filling out your PDFs. Just imagine how awesome it’d be to do something like a lab report in there. Add pictures, add videos, add sketches… lots of possibilities!
This feature is available to all Book Creator users.

Did you know that Book Creator books could contain more than just text? Like, way more?
Back in the day, when I first saw Jon Smith present about Book Creator, I was so jealous that it wouldn’t work with my classroom-cart of Chromebooks. Nowadays, you can use Book Creator on just about any device, and better yet, they have added tons of different types of media options that weren’t there before!
Check out this #EduGIF to see the 16 types of media that you and your students can add to your creations! Then read on to learn a little about each! As you’ll discover, there are actually way more than 16 types that’ll work!
