I really like the PosterMyWall.com website as a simple but powerful graphical editing tool. If we combine it with Scratch as an animating tool there are lots of things we can do. In this post I will describe several challenges for students to try.
Challenge 1 – Animate a poster
This requires you to create a simple poster using PosterMyWall.com (instructions here) and then download it and use it in Scratch as a background. If you can’t remember how to upload backgrounds into Scratch I have created this page to help. Then add some animated sprites to make the poster come to life.
Challenge 2 – Animate the text and sprites
Create a background in PosterMyWall again, but this time use Scratch to add animated text to the poster like we did in an earlier Scratch project.
Challenge 3 – Multiple backgrounds with animated text, sprites and sound!
You can actually create sprites in PosterMyWall using the transparent background and editing tools like I demonstrate in the 3rd video on this page. There’s really no limit other than your creativity and time. I wonder what you can make with both of these powerful tools.
